Artist history

Many years of Pharming around for fun. It all started in 1995 with some "toys" and a 4-track reel-to-reel at CCAD, making soundtracks for my video feedback collages. It eventually became "The All-Monster Chorus" from a lot of experimenting with various forms of feedback (kind of like how The Hulk turned green). Started using Sound Edit 16 in Spring '97 for first digital songs. Collected more toys through '99... discovered fractal music generators like GingerBread & Fmusic in '00... actually paid for some quality instruments, including the JP-8000, and now have a well rounded studio (especially with AudioMulch in my arsenal). With the diversity of musical sources I have been herding in the last few years, I've realized that I have become a farmer of sound in a way.
