31, from Australia (Melbourne, ex-Perth).
I've been a guitarist since age 6, and writing electronic music since I was 12—I started with a copy of FT2 from August 1996 issue of PC Format magazine and a bunch of samples ripped from demoscene tracks. I upgraded to Buzz in 2001 and then Renoise in 2012, and soon began acquiring hardware. I've found the Monomachine is pretty close to the sound design workflow I used in Buzz, which suits me just fine! These days I also use a MIDI pickup on my guitar when playing live.
I have fairly eclectic music tastes, but mostly love prog, space rock, IDM, metal and chiptunes/demoscene music. 'Favourite' bands from each genre (respectively) are Genesis (80s King Crimson a very close second), Eloy, Autechre, Meshuggah and Fleshbrain.
Oh, and I love good synthpop as well!
