Biography

Hexnilium was born in Space City (Houston, TX, USA) in 1982. He is directly related to the famous classical composer Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) who wrote the symphonic suite Scheherazade.

He began piano lessons early in life at the age of 4. He was classically trained on piano until almost 1998. Before quitting piano lessons, his musical journey took him to various instruments from clarinet, bass clarinet, trumpet, drums, acoustic guitar, jazz guitar, bass guitar, and finally the electric guitar.

The final step in his musical journey was when Hexnilium became an improvisational player and composer on the piano. This led him to new harmonic and melodic structures that were a unique style.

The development of his taste for electronic music began in 1995 after the movie Hackers. He fell in love with the rhythmic percussion of The Prodigy and the electronic soundscapes of Orbital.

He was previously influenced by electronically influenced bands like Stabbing Westward, Gravity Kills, White Zombie, and 311, but after discovering an electronic music compilation which enlightened him to BT, The Crystal Method, Überzone, Deepsky, Fluke, Buzz Fiend, Rabbit in the Moon, Electric Skychurch, The Propellerheads, and Joey Jupiter he began to cement electronic music into his foundation for creation.

Eventually after learning more about the computer and how it works, he became interested in generating his own electronic sounds.
