I was born in Vancouver, BC Canada, and am now a producer and performer living & loving with My daughter Vivi, on Vancouver Island. I have been dabbling in music production since the late 90s, lit afire with passion for sound by the now legendary festivals and artists who defined the soundtrack my early Youth. I have always been fascinated by the voice, and how it intersects with every facet of our waking lives. The diversity and vast span of expression vocalization represents is my obsession, along with manipulating and complimenting my own intonations, inner or otherwise, with electronic experiments that are more improvisation than composition. I love field recordings, synthesizers, looping, and sampling as a means to express that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that compels so many of us to create.
I mine inspiration from daily life as well as treasured travels and adventures to see new landscapes, live shows/art exhibitions from artists such as Fever Ray, The Cure, Björk, Frida Kahlo, PTV, and my many super talented contemporaries who never cease to amaze me with their talent. I have a vast and eclectic taste and am always mixing classics with obscure, sweet with savoury, and strange with true.
I don’t know if anyone else finds my output exciting, but I am hopeful I can bring some mirth and playfulness to life in my offerings. Thanks for stopping by!
