Profile

I am a music composer/producer, sound designer and podcast host. I am particularly interested in the intersection of experimental music and music technology. The focus of my work has been music production, sound design, editing and live performance.

As a music producer I’ve created original works and remixed others within a variety of genres. My work has been featured in Boing Boing, The Brvtalist, Interview Magazine, Passive/Agressive.dk, Spin, Tiny Mix Tapes, DIY Conspiracy and others. My recordings can be found on labels such as Audio Visuals Atmosphere (Belgium), Black Horizons (US), Granulart Records (Spain), Phinery (Denmark), Cønjuntø Vacíø (Spain), and Spring Break Tapes (US). My recent releases have played in some of the most revered clubs in the world, supported by the likes of Oscar Mulero, DJ Pete, Kessell, Tensal, Regis and others.

As a sound designer I’ve created preset patch libraries for software-based synthesizers and effects processors for companies such as Arturia and Inear Display. I have created video demonstrations, walkthroughs and patch example videos, featuring products from Industrial Music Electronics (The Harvestman) and Make Noise Music.

My long-running cassette-based underground and experimental music podcast, Norelco Mori has logged over 75 episodes, each presenting an hour of curated music from my own library as well as submissions received from artists across the globe. Through this experience I have co-founded Limited Interest, a small-run cassette-only label with Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails, SONOIO) and the recently launched Norelco Mori Limited label, which highlights the works of artists featured on the podcast.
