Hi my name is Kyle Mayer and I love creating music. From the days of playing 8 bit games or the music my parents would have on, my early childhood was spent absorbing music subconsciously. I've been playing guitar since the age of 9 and it has been my main instrument over the years. Throughout my life I have done my best to acquire and learn any instrument I'm interested in: viola, guitar, drums, keys, bass, and hopefully more to come as time goes by. I've played in metal bands over my high school years up until even now. It was only a few years ago I really discovered electronic music as something to learn. It fascinated me as I saw it as a more modern way to be a composer. So many sounds and textures could be made from just a computer and other hardware that I knew this was something I really wanted to get into.

Few years later and this is where I'm at now musically. I'm 21 and live in my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I lock myself in my bedroom for hours and work on music whenever I have the free time. I think what you'll find in my music is that is an amalgamation of all the styles of music I'm currently into. To be eclectic is something I strive for. I hope you'll hear this in my music and enjoy the effort I put in to be different in a vast array of copy-cat "musicians" who are in it for the wrong reasons. This is why I go by the name Misnomer as a producer. To try to nail down my style as a musician would be a misnomer in itself.

Anyways please listen with an open mind and leave your thoughts on my music. I always enjoy seeing what people think of my work because the creative process needs review to work . Also please check out one of my good friends Andrew Jetter who goes by the production name of Cycles. He is a brilliant sound designer who specializes in lo-fi. Amazing stuff coming from him lately. He is a huge inspiration and influence to me musically and a great friend.
