A Jazz guitarist, Composer and Educator. Always trying to keep himself inspired in order to express thoughts and feelings that he needs to "share" with other people. He is always interested in new music; however, he wouldn’t characterize himself as an avant-garde composer. He is influenced by the music of East European Composers such as Alfred Schnitke, Sofia Gubaidulina, Andrjey Panufnic and Krzysztof Penderecki, some music of his teacher Nicholas Sackman and mostly from his jazz background as a Jazz Guitarist. In his opinion, it is a Composer’s duty to be in touch with contemporary music, however, one should not be prone to any prejudice or aesthetic cliché as well as the constant stress of being modern. Looking for originality and being always ready to look with a critical eye at his/her accomplishments, the Composer will be able to decode the ‘real’ and the ‘ideal’ that is always necessary for creative composition.
A very thorough bass player and professor, participating in various recordings and performances for the past 25 years.
After joining the several influential and popular bands, in 1992, Vivian Campbell joined the rock band Def Leppard and has spent the last twenty years with the band, releasing eight albums and touring worldwide with the band.
