About Me

Too much to tell.
Summary : Im an electronic music imagineer.

I wasn't aware I had ears until I heard "The Model" by Kraftwerk. I was later inspired by Depeche Mode, and then Detroit Techno, then I gravitated to IDM, but I now create electronica, which is a wide enough umbrella to cover the wide scope of my work.

I don't want one single genre to become a stritjacket, and be confined to doing just one style.
