about

"I am interested in completely free patterns that when mixed unexpectedly change keys or tempo. I create an urgency to find one piece that holds the chaos together.

There are midi converters, which only understand chromatic input. There is a theremin component, which can be tuned to doric for some added drama. Meanwhile CD turntables are scratched manually and wired into the same midi note converters. Cramming input devices together makes more output unpredictability, with overloaded notes dropped. I never quite know what is happening through the complex configuration.

For me music has to move you and not fall back into the background. So, the tracks are not quantized, to keep the listener alert by hearing small rubs, imperfections, and, in turn, this forces me to learn how to make a song from core elements. I'm a fan of folk music and want to make a kind of electronic folk using my untrained background to an advantage."
