Robotanalysis started piano lessons at the age of 7. In his mid-teens he became fascinated with improvisation – something that affected his playing style and approach to composition. In the mid 90s he was introduced to electronic music through the tracking scene and started to create his own electronic music in 1999.
A former computer science major, he aimed to combine his passion for music and knowledge of computers in creative and artistic ways. In 2003 he started the Electronic Music Ensemble at Northeastern University. Focused on creating an improvisatory environment, the ensemble combined acoustic and electronic instruments such as guitar, vibes, electric reed organ, turntables, and laptops. Around this period the majority of his time was spent playing around with various synthesizers, FX pedals, and software plugins. He continued to create music after college though much of it wasn’t recorded.
After taking a hiatus from recording electronic music in 2008, he continued to play piano, melodica, and harmonium. 10 years later, in 2018, he wanted to stop talking about himself in the 3rd person. Whew.
Thanks for listening.
