Biography

It may be hard to believe, but being much older than I act, I’ve actually been making electronic music since 1982. Since I have yet to get it right, I will likely be making it until my synapses cease to fire.

In 1982 I bought my first synth, a Yamaha CS01 and I was hooked. After hearing Thomas Dolby on the radio I realised that the only thing left to do was sell my guitars. Within a couple years I had a Moog, an Arp, a Korg and a Roland. My band mate, Steve Wytas, had begun collecting drum machines and effects. In 1985 our electronic outfit The Free World won a spot on the CMJ magazine’s best unsigned bands contest (thanks WFCS, New Britain,CT for submitting us ). Having only released tapes to our freinds, we found ourselves on
Epic Presents the Unsigned - 1985.


We followed it up in ‘86 with our Debut LP Amagi on CT based indie label, VSR. It got some nice reviews, some good college radio air play and we even played live a few times. Back in the studio we polished up our follow up The Tyranny of Culture when we weren’t producing tracks for our clients at Technorubble Recording Studio. These included some early hip hop, r&b, indie rock bands as well as commercial music for corporate videos and radio spots. While a few indie lables did express interest, the second album never really saw the light of day as our diverging interests lead Steve and I to split up the band and the studio.
