Brian Roche is at times a composer, musician, artist, writer and chef. Those are his passions. To support himself over the years he has held at least fifty jobs, from waiting tables to apple picking, from record-store clerk to taxi driving, from shoveling snow to Anthropology researcher. He plays guitar, sitar, piano and woodwinds (recorder, clarinet and saxophone).

He works in all kinds of artistic media, from absolutely controlled pen-and-ink drawings (Untitled Nudes, 1999, 2006 and 2009) to black and white photography (Winter 2008) to abstract digital painting (Spring, Summer, Fall and Big Skies 2009).

His "Ephemeris: Music of the Spheres" has been recorded five times. Other recordings include works for classical and 12-string guitar, sitar, piano, clarinet, saxophone, synthesizer and orchestra, as well as free improvisation and a virtual random jazz band.

He is currently devoted to improvisation on guitar, piano and sitar. Improvisation is also his M.O. in gardening, cooking, painting, chess and coin magic!
