Myke Weiskopf is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and songwriter based in Los Angeles. Raised in the Chicago suburbs in the early '80s, he developed a signature style influenced equally by the traditional new-wave and electronic pop of the era and his more esoteric personal influences, such as shortwave radio and the industrial architecture of the Midwest. Moving to Boston for college in 1995, he formed the electronic pop group Science Park in 1997 and issued three increasingly acclaimed albums: Science Park (1997), Futurama (1998), and Disinformation (2000). Suffering a stress-related nervous breakdown while on tour in late 2000, Weiskopf disbanded Science Park the following year and retreated from pop music altogether for six years, focusing instead on freelance writing, sound-art composition, and experimental radio broadcasting. He resurfaced in early 2007 with a commemorative anthology of music entitled 30: A Retrospective 1976-2006.
