First tape recorder at age 9. Second at age 13. Third at age 14. I can stop a fast-forwarding or rewinding reel-to-reel or cassette tape at precisely the point between songs from the "feel" alone. Electronic music at age 16 (circuit-bending my Farfisa Mini Compact organ). Studied Electronic Music Composition and Multi-Media Performance and Conceptual Art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, where I began as a sneak-in student for three months, and after being caught, was invited to apply as a full-time student due to how prolific I had been (frantically thinking each day would be my last getting access to the synthesizer studio, which had two EMS VCS 3 "Putney" synths and a four-track Sony tape deck. Heavenly!) Accepted as first non-visual artist in the school's long history after a double-sized admissions board consisting of 24 faculty members finally decided to let me in. I'm an "artist-type".
