I'm a Music scientist and I play an instrument that I invented and have written a book about.
I'm not currently available for performance, but I will be very soon. I play guitar pedals and synthesizers to make Drum n Bass.
*Raised on Drawing and Music Appreciation; mostly Classical, Rock n Roll, and Hip Hop.
*started making electronic music in 1999 on Sonic Foundry Acid.
*started scratching vinyl in 2001, and also began learning about audio sciences and 'wave twisting.'
*played the bass guitar since high school (1998)- and retired it in 2002 for Producing beats.
*spent several years learning music from music theory books and audio sciences online- plus I rummaged UCSB's library for books on sound which didn't amount to as much as I'd thought.
*I tied for second at the QQuest Competition for Skratching Vinyl in Berkley University 2005, judged by Yoga Frog and DJ Qbert. I was surprised I got that far since the set was a mess to me.
*starting in 2005, I began throwing Raves with two other Fresno DJs Agent42 & DJ Shant P.
*in 2007, everything fell apart and Shant P designed Viberite Productions to continue our Rave throwing adventure.
*2009, I released REAL DARK under the alias 'Hyena'.
*2010, I became 'town famous' with now DJ legend and veteran Shant P for starting the Fresno rave scene, and 2010-2011 were our golden rave years, we even had a warehouse to throw 'drum n bass parties' as much as 'b.y.o.b.'s and house music raves.
*since 2001, I've always been curious as to how it would sound to make a DEF signal into an instrument. By 2012- I made it; DEFNOX.
*2013 I released the first most gawd-awful DEFNOX Album 'Rave Against the Machine'.
*2015 I released the (4 years in the making) music science experiment Album RIDDLE CHROME, which not only taught me how to write music and play music with the DEFNOX, but the album wrote an entire book called MSPA. It was published before the album in the same year, and it's currently being reviewed by two different scientists at the 'National Academy of Sciences' in Washington DC.
I've DJed in several cities across California and a few in Nevada.
I've only performed or 'Droned' about maybe 5 or 6 times in front of audiences of about 5 or 10 to about 500 or less, and have developed a few hardcore fans who are curious to see where the DEFNOX is going. Either way though, the usual feedback is "Badass". I can't prove it with video or audio currently. [+]
