is an all hardware electronic artist with professional experience on slide guitar, samplers, modular synthesizers, MIDI and voltage control sequencers, lots of digital and analog effects processors, loopers, and objects wired to contact microphones. While some past recording and performance relied heavily on digital sequencing and working with IDM / industrial influenced beats, recent endeavors lean more toward home made instruments and improvisation on old style modular synthesizers. Often working with butoh dance as a source for direction, inspiration and outlet for live performance, sometimes large scale theater with up to 15 dancers. It is impossible to sum up in a short biography the full list of contributions Noisepoetnobody has made to the Seattle / Portland music community in the last 12 years and he currently is active booking a monthly event showcasing ambient and drone based music.
