Stephen uses the mechanized process of electronic music production and combines the expression of complex human feelings to create sound art. The tools of his output are computers, tape recorders, wires and other conduits of noise. His sound transcends the inhuman element of “technologically enhanced” production methods so vital in the world of electronic music producers, and in it’s place submits raw and unfiltered emotion. While exploring the idea of personal expression through the cold exterior of machines, he takes the concepts of compositional indeterminancy, generative music and evolving cellular automata and humanizes them. The end result is populist music of emotional depth that illicits response via technology. Having trained in percussion and guitar, his compositional methods are rooted in structured narrative that are constantly being mutated under the pressure of new forms of expression.
Stephen has releases on Under the Radar Records, Alectric Records (Canada), Fateless Flows Records and Sounds Are Active. Stephen is the founding organizer of The “Under the Radar” experimental music and video events in San Francisco. He now resides in Los Angeles.
