this guy is simply put... sweeet!!!!!

i saw him play at the soap factory a while back. a few of the unique, personally-built instruments he played included a synth modulated by photo-resistors, bowed curtain-rods amplified to cavernous depths, and what looked like a boiler/pressure cooker pot for chemicals from the 1800s that created numerous semi-melodic popping noises when drummed at different spots. i really dig the sort of steampunk/mad scientist aesthetic he has for all his creations, housing them in the refuse and junk of older generations, from geiger counters to minesweeping units to old Buicks. he's from duluth, mn, and was very receptive when i asked him questions about his equipment after his performance.
