Hi!I'm Will, originally from Pennsylvania but now happily living in Portland Oregon.I am not an alien, or an enlightened cosmic being, I am simply a human trying as best they can to make music in a way that is enjoyable both for me and any listener that is kind enough to happen by.
I was introduced to psytrance in 2003 by a friend, and attended my first festival that summer.Ever since I have been an active participant in psytrance culture and have attended, performed at and helped organize festivals and events on both the east and west coasts of the US.
I feel very strongly that trance dance rituals and communities coming together to re-affirm their fundamental humanity are essential tools,and my concepts of how to catalyze or help influence that experience through music are constantly in flux.
My own production/DJ journey began in late 2009 through Tom Cosm's Introduction to Digital Audio production series, and with that knowledge in hand I dove right into the deep end of production.~2 years later I'm just barely starting to tap into my musical voice and cleaner production, and hopefully that will continue to flourish.
My sound attempts to be a fusion of my influences while not being derivative attempts to recreate x and y genre - to create my own sound with its own feeling, emotion and story.
I still have a long, long way to go but the journey is incredible. I appreciate critiques/advice, encouragement and welcome any questions. Like a sound? Ask me how and if I remember I'll gladly tell you.
Want to book me for a gig? I love playing out and I'm free except for travel expenses.
