Peloton A&R Front Man, Curator, DJ, Producer, and self-proclaimed dance maniac, Aron Schoppert first became involved in northwest electronic music in the early to mid 90s, largely in part to his early connections with collectives up and down the west coast through internet hub Hyperreal.
In 1998 he picked up his first set of turntables and spent most of his tech salary on experimental techno and idm, and specialized in everything from avant and neo-classical forms of minimilism to the universal jacking forms of techno and house in the years to follow.
He is excited to be working on the next wave of interactive art and environments, merging unique characteristics of both analog and digital worlds.Expect to see elements of this woven into the fabric of future event spaces
.Peloton is actively collaborating on music production, and multimedia projects
