Biography

Asymmetrical Head is William Rosario.

Born in Staten Island, NY. Raised in various parts of Southern California, then located to Central Florida (Davenport to be exact… about 20 miles west of Orlando), and now in Northridge, CA. William Rosario’s first glimps of electronic music came in 1981 when he was attempting to breakdance with some friends in the Queensboro Bridge Projects. One of the dancers had a Ghettoblaster, and from it the sounds of Numbers/Computer World 2 by Kraftwerk was resonating. This changed young William’s life forever!

Throughout the 80s, he listened to listened to synth pop and industrial artists such as Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Joy Division/New Order, Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb and Hip Hop artists like Public Enemy, Eric B. & Rakim, Boogie Down Productions, Big Daddy Kane, NWA and so forth. Later, as the 90s approached, he delved into House Music and Techno. In 1993, he further cemented his electronic roots when he discovered Aphex Twin. That discovery opened a new portal into Abstrakt Electronic Music (basically known as IDM today, a term that many find pretenscious, but others feel there is no other way to explain it other than such).

Throughout the 90s, his interest were mostly acts like The Orb, Future Sound of London, The Black Dog, Plastikman, Roni Size, DJ Food, Squarepusher, µ-ziq, Autechre, etc. The later half of the 90s, William began djing at house parties and art galleries. That lasted up until around 2002 when he and an old friend STVN started a duo called souvlakia in 2002. They released an album of Shoegazy type electronic music called “Beau” in early 2007.
