Music.

Music was a big part of my life from Life from 1995 to 2006. From 1995 to 2000 and 2003 to 2006 it was my primary life focus. Touring starting in 2004 until 2006 and culminated with a number of  opportunities including music festival appearances around the globe, a grant to invent two different hardware controllers, and a project to code and then produce realtime 360-degree surround Audio-visual realtime environments.

Music was composed/produced under a few different pseudonyms but primarily as: ArcTone and Conch. Conch is the collaboration between Walter Slootweg and myself, Sebastian Chedal. Conch was primarily a live improv act with a playful ambient sound and frequently entirely unexpected results.

Since 2006 music productivity has been much slower. A time may come when I once again pick up the equipment and tour once again.
