Catharsis, also known as Scott Petersen, I have been spinning records for the past twenty+ years and producing music for fourteen. My musical inspirations are rooted in spirituality and the creative influence from my father, a professional jazz musician and educator. I am a music professional with broad experience in label management, digital content management, licensing, sales, distribution (digital and physical), marketing and A&R,label management, digital content coordination, and as equally important, the fervor and work ethic required of being an artist. Kevin Yost, Fred Everything, Dzihan& Kamien, Krush, Fragment Orchestra, Matthias Vogt, Timewriter, Bugge Wesseltoft ,Fila Brazilla and Jazzanova are a few of my many contemporary influences worthy of respect. The jazz greats Herbie Hancock, Bill Laswell, Oscar Peterson, Coltrane, Sun Ra and father Jack Petersen are my musical foundation. I live one day at a time. I strive to live a happy life with music being an integral part of it." As Catharsis, I am constantly involved in several different projects. I am one half of PC Synergy, with gifted engineer Phil Green providing the production force and extreme talent.
