How old are you and where are you from?


#205

50 years old, currently living in Hutchinson, Kansas. Born in Kansas City, lived in Colorado and Arizona for much of my life. I’ve been making electronic music for over 35 years, having started in 1980 when I became fascinated with a friend’s Casio VL-Tone. Got one of my own pretty quick. After seeing Gary Numan perform “Praying to the Aliens” on television and The Cars live at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix, I was determined to get a proper synth. I went in halves on a Moog Rogue with a friend and got my own Roland SH-09 a short time later. Countless synths, samplers, sequencers and other instruments later, I caught the Elektron bug only a year ago when a friend mentioned that Elektron’s parameter locks might be an interesting alternative to what I was doing with the sequencers on my massive modular system (sort of modular ‘wavesequencing’) as well as a more interactive way to do the sort of vocal treatments I did with Kyma. Started with the Octatrack in November of '15 and now a year later I’ve added Monomachine, A4 and Machinedrum.

I have a wide range of musical influences, from art rock (Roxy Music, Bowie, BeBop Deluxe) and prog (old Genesis, Pink Floyd, Rush, IQ, Arena, etc) to early Industrial (Throbbing Gristle, Factrix, Skinny Puppy), goth rock (Sisters, Tones on Tail, Play Dead). I love The Virgin Prunes, Tuxedomoon and harbor a special affection for The Legendary Pink Dots (who eventually became label-mates and friends). Of late, I’ve been digging Sonoio and Xeno and Oaklander. If it makes me think, I probably like it.

EDIT: How could I forget to list space music? Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, et al?
