Larry Jay Davis - Dr. Davis' career as a guitarist began during the early years of Clapton and Bloomfield, shortly after the breakthrough introduction of felt tip pens. After living a year in Buffalo, he decided to return to fame and fortune in California. He has appeared on at least one mainstream album, and he has worked with Dr. Graves on a number of studio projects since 2001. He holds a doctorate in a scientific field that, during the day, is not embarrassing.
David Graves - Dr. Graves stopped his classical piano lessons when he realized they wouldn't assist in his understanding of Rick Wakeman's Roundabout solo. Later, during his study of electronic music, sparks and wires were very impressive to humans of the female persuasion and he became greatly distracted. He began travels to scenic places like Omaha, Lexington, and upstate New York, but was ultimately asked to leave. He moved to San Francisco in 1991 and has delved into a variety of musical accidents, ranging from AudioBus performences to a residency with the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra. Like Dr. Davis, he holds a doctorate in a scientific field. However, during the day, it is greatly embarrassing.
Jim Henriques - The guitar called to Mr. Henriques at a young age. Sadly, he frequently responded by speaking aloud to it and was ultimately hospitalized by his parents. His numerous educational experiences were quite painful and lengthy, so, being a vengeful person, he decided to become a teacher. By then, he already had two degrees and more musical instruments than he could shake a virtual stick at... So he obtained another Master's Degree (this one in music composition) in Southern California. In recent years, Mr. Henriques' prolific musical personalities have resulted in a wide variety of songwriting and number of dramatic rock projects in Southern California. His encounters with sad instances of "science envy" were remarkably inspirational and are the basis of many musical ideas for (and the name of) this fine musical ensemble.
Rich Kallet - Having bombed his SAT's, Mr. Kallet's mathematical aptitude seemingly limited his career options to being a rock-n-roll drummer (provided he was restricted to counting in common time). Venturing to the University of Miami, he bumped into the legendary Jaco Pastorius, who kindly asked him to get out of his way. Fortunately, by this time he had met Jim Henriques. They set out to antagonize the aesthetic sensibilities of the University's Jazz Department with a prog-rock group. Many years later, the semi-respectable medical researcher reluctantly joined a garage band organized by a delusional "guitar owner." There, he met the equally mortified Dr. Graves. The two quickly teamed up with Dr. Davis to form the Æsthetic Condition. After reuniting with Mr. Henriques, the group became this musical abomination. Enjoy!
