Les Konley, aka Local Anesthetic, has been playing piano since the age of 7. He composed his first multi-track song in 1990 using two cassette decks with a Roland D-50 keyboard and a programmed drum loop on a Commodore Amiga computer.
He started getting serious about composition in 1998 when his career allowed the funding for building up his project studio, and he spent most of his free time learning how to use all the new equipment and composing new music. The studio hats he now wears include audio engineer, mastering engineer and producer. The musician hats he wears include keyboardist, percussionist, effects vocals, sound designer, and synth programmer, among others.
These original songs were composed, performed, arranged, recorded and mixed by Les Konley at his home studio. What started as a hobby has grown into a new career, and Les is now shifting his direction to compose for film, television, radio, business video, video games and multimedia productions. His studio, called Imperfection Studios, specializes in original music composition, non-linear digital video editing, DVD authoring and CD mastering, studio session recording, and sound design.
This small collection of his work represents both new and old compositions which span a broad range of styles. The most interesting characteristic of the majority of these songs is that they continually change and evolve, maintaining your interest. The album was so named, not only because of the various styles of music, but for the places the music can take you and the images they may conjure in your mind.

Les looks forward to producing his second album in the near future. Les Konley is also the founder of the Home Studio Musicians Association: http://www.homestudiomusicians.com
