You can say it all started when my mother
gave me a cheap plastic portable cassette
recorder in 1977. I used to take it with me
everywhere I went and do these little "pause
button" mixes. I would record things
in the car on a Sunday family drive, in restaraunts,
in the park , etc. etc. Later on my mother
bought me a "Sears" electric guitar
and amplifier with wich I had no interest
in playing in a conventional manner so I would
sit in front of the amp and turn everything
up to 10 and do crazy feedback stuff until
I tired of it (or my ears could no longer
take it). Fast forward to the late 1980's
when I got into all sorts of experimental
electronic music, free jazz, downtown N.Y.
No Wave,etc. etc. I played in different "free
noise" bands for a while but couldn't
really find many people who were on the same
page as me so I purchased a 4-track and began
doing experiments with field recordings,guitar,&electronics.
Eventually I started up a small cassette label
called Jill*Off and began trading tapes with
many people involved in the "home taping"
scene of the early to mid 90's. I stopped
the label in 1996 to pursue "higher education"
and received a degree in audio engineering
at the Institute of Audio Research in N.Y.C.
When I finished school I began experimenting
with computer music and field recordings and
generally following what's going in on the
world of technology. Things evolve so quickly
that I just can't imagine how "computer
music" will progress in the near future
but I'm sure I'll still be doin' my thang...
