I am a composer, sound designer, hardware designer and programmer who is enthusiastic about gaming and game mods. I feel like gaming is the future of multimedia entertainment and the storytelling of today. I am especially interested in generative music and interactive music, that further immerses the user in the virtual world. I have built robots that compose music, data-driven algorithmic music, forward thinking electronica track, full symphonic works, multiple chamber works and have played in and composed for award-winning electro acoustic ensembles.

Nice studio equipment! I kinda wish I knew what you need all that stuff for but it makes your studio look more professional compared to mine. All I got is a Oxygen61 midi keyboard and fl studio. :C
