Writing your own statement as an artist who's medium of choice is something other than words is sort of like a writer painting their own self portrait. I suppose I could go on some grandiose self-lauding narrative about my views on art, existence and the universe, but these things are best discussed in person, where I would be encouraged to make sense. I can say this though: works that I release to go off on their own into the world typically contain a degree of abstraction. I prefer to leave the viewer/listener with room for conversation, to absorb as they see fit. Like TV commercials, only the complete opposite aesthetically.
As to things which pretty much are what they are regardless of context:
Professionally I am an Audio Engineer with background/experience/training in Audio Engineering and Network Engineering/Computer Science. I've spent the past five years as Audio Engineer/Soundtrack Composer/Exhibit Developer/Screen Printing Lab Coordinator at Discovery World (www.discoveryworld.org) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA.
Artistically I have no formal training beyond what was taught in public schools. I am a constant learner and typically move on to another medium as soon as I reach a general level of understanding. What I have learned from one medium changes the way I see/saw another, forming what has been an endless cycle of inspiration via exploration.
So why build this thing? After years of creating I've found myself surrounded by things, and this site is an attempt to set free those which I feel are fit for the world to use. I believe that art is a form of communication - when your work is hidden you are talking to yourself.
