Musical Backgrounds

As a bassist, I lay the musical foundation beneath the band. Each of my notes carries melody, rhythm and weight. Beside my speaker, I can physically feel the air move as I play; the lower the note, the heavier the sensation. With such movement, I believe bass is a crucial and powerful element in music. It is the bass that supports the band, the song and the message.

As a musician, I am a bassist.

Visual Foregrounds

Though, beyond being a musician, I am an artist; an active graphic and web designer; a part time painter and photographer; a full time collaborator. In fact, every project in which I partake, I approach as a bassist. I want to support a project to my fullest capabilities, so I aim to lay a strong foundation. I aim to lay down the bass line.

As a designer, I am a bassist.

Mission Checklist

· to speak in a manner the client can best understand

· to always strive for originality - down with cookie cutter templates!

· to work with and build from the client's stylistic preferences

· to have a web programmer available for site maintenance if I am unavailable

· to beat any competing price within reason

· to agree on project scopes and to finish ahead of time (or as quick as possible)

· to optimize your site's rankings in Google and make you gasp in awe! Note: search 'Jonathan Siegel' in Google. Out of over 200,000 web sites and thousands of other Jonathan Siegel's, you will notice basslinedesign.com appears on page 1, and my jonthebassist.com web site appears (still as of October 2004) in the top-most #1 and #2 slots!

The Bass-ic Elements

Bass:

the foundation of music — the low resonations support the band, the song and the message.

Line:

the basic element of all things visual — every image begins with a line.

Design:

the process by which I create visual imagery from the mindset of a bassist — that is, built from the bottom up — the results are structurally sound visual creations.
