"My manifesto (if any) has always been to compose an audio-biography of will in the face of adversity"
Officially based in Toronto, Canada, I was signed to Filter Label for 4 years writing, composing and remixing under the artist moniker VennDiagram. I was one of the primary RS7000.org moderators for many years and contributed sound banks to Concrete FX Kubik 2.0 on original release, while curating the tips and tricks section of several gear forums in the mid 90's.
It's been a busy few years completing remixes for Stereospread and UK's Little Birds & Spaces Between. Since 2012 I have released 3 albums and 1 EP with extra tracks released on 5 separate compilations whilst remixing and assisting other artists with mixing and production.
The Deutsches Symphonie Orchestra (DSO Berlin) held a Dvorak "Into the New World" remix competition in which I was among the list of selected finalists. Reworking Dvorak was both a challenge and a labour of love as my recently deceased father was a lover of many of his works. I once again made the official finalists circle in 2016 with a reworking of Bruckner's Symphony No.4 reworked as though it appeared in a waking dream.
Having wrapped up my last LP 'Throwing Shade', I am now looking forward to exploring my enthusiasm for all things sonically manipulated. Two new releases are out on compilation, one with DSO Berlin via Sony Classical and the other on the California based ambient label Synphaera Records.
I have parted ways with Filter Label and am focused on independent releases as I build up a library of customs patches, samples and sound libraries for future release with my new "Phoneme" project.
