Jasun Martz Product Blitz Approaches

Jasun Martz is hard to pin down as an artist. His career stretches back to the psychedelic rock era, includes work with both Frank Zappa and Michael Jackson as well as experimental electronic and orchestral pieces. He's also a well-known visual artist. Much of his musical output has previously been somewhat difficult to get hold of, but that's changing.
