About

Author & Punisher is an industrial doom and drone metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom fabricated machines/controllers and speakers. I have performed and shown these machines in festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad recently. I released my third album, yet first sculpture/art based album entitled “Drone Machines” in 2010 on Heart & Crossbone Records out of Tel-Aviv, and plan to release another album in 2011, focused primarily on the newer Dub Machines. Alongside fabricating machines and composing sound for performance, I work at the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (http://ncmir.ucsd.edu/) as a mechanical engineer and the Center for Research and Computing in the Arts (http://crca.ucsd.edu/) at UCSD as a researcher in media arts.

I received my BS in mechanical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2000 and my MFA in visual arts from the University of California, San Diego in 2007 with the Drone Machines as my thesis project.

Drone/Dub Machines are custom made machines fabricated from raw materials and utilizing open source circuitry. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding drone and doom influenced sounds that are created.
