Keyboardist/Eigenharpist David Jameson began his music career in the late 1970’s – the heyday of powerful keyboard players. He absorbed the work of ELP, Genesis, Weather Report, Yes, Return to Forever and Camel weaving aspects of all into his own approach. He spent several years touring with Time Machine and then left the music scene for a career at IBM after completing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
Jameson’s work at IBM began at the T.J. Watson Research Center where he created and managed the Computer Music Research group. His pioneering research was acknowledged by election to the prestigious IBM Academy of Technology. David left IBM to found Digiportal Software and Deskew Technologies the latter of which develops the acclaimed Scorecerer sheet music manager application for the iPad. He also designs MaxMSP applications and libraries for live performance and for the Eigenharp – an electronic hybrid instrument akin to a computerized bassoon that features heavily in The Security Project shows.
In addition to working with The Security Project, David also performs with Beyond The Wall. For these lives shows he uses a custom keyboard/Eigenharp system that includes the Korg KronosX 88 and four Roland A800 Pro keyboard controllers, as well as iPads and iPhones running Scorecerer and Lemur all tied together through a LAN with a Macbook Pro running custom software developed with MaxMSP. A more detailed description of his live rig and software can be found here. David’s latest project, Gig Performer, an audio plugin host application aimed at live performance musicians and singers will be released in November 2016.
