About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Audio Synthesist / Trend Synthesist
Location Loss Angeles, California, United States
Introduction Into synth music since 1978; into synths since 1980. Began full-time work in synthesis in 1987 when I started TECHNOSIS, a sound design company first serving the Ensoniq ESQ-1. Later, created sounds for Yamaha, Korg, Alesis, Peavey, Sound Source Unlimited, Kawai, and others, including a few artists. Worked at Alesis full-time from 1996 through 2001, on the DG8, DMPro, Andromeda, and other items, including the initial specification (but not the development) of the ModFX line. Also did some patches for the excellent Evolver Rack. Stuffed dozens of circuit boards for Cyndustries, Livewire Audio, and Bubblesound. Wrote a few reviews for EM magazine, did some interstitial music for a few early Taxicab Confessions episodes, co-wrote and co-produced the title music for the mid 90's MTV special "24/7", mixed some of the music for the wonderfully cheesy film "The People Under The Stairs", and a few commercials as well. I'm pretty sure that I can still calibrate the tracking of an Oberheim SEM with one hand tied behind my back. Also, something about Mysticism.
Interests Art, perception, spirituality, expression, recording, trend synthesis.
