31 from Portland, Maine.
I’ll mostly go with what currently inspires me, but before I got into making electronic music (beyond messing around with Fruity Loops and other software), Syd Barrett was my biggest influence.
Currently I’m listening to BADBADNOTGOOD. Been digging these guys a lot this year, and getting more into the hip-hop tinged jazzy stuff. Taylor Mcferrin has been another favorite along those lines.
Animal Collective inspires me all the time and has been my favorite band for many years. Deerhunter and Liars are other favorites I got into around the same time, ten or so years ago.
I’m definitely influenced by Depeche Mode and Tears for Fears, thanks to my dad.
I saw a lot of great live music this summer and my favorite performance was Bonobo.
Anyway, I’m here because of Autechre.
