Into the bone at the front of your skull, squirming around one way then the other. Shouting and kicking, pulling and letting go. Then out the back of your head, leaving a 4 inch gaping hole through which the whole world can see dripping the digital notes of solitude, awareness, passion, and cold, rigid architecture you just heard for the first time. And now you realize: You just heard for the first time.
I make digital creations touched by accoustic guitars and air, somewhat in the vein of Chemical Brothers, but not so cool. Like Beck but not as brave. Similar to Radiohead but not quite as important.
I like modern art music, particularly Lutoslawski, Penderecki, Boulez, and Part.
I also like modern pop music including those listed above.
Some of these have influenced what you might hear here, but they don't know it and neither does the music.

Will Brown was born William Gordon Brown in 1978 in the small town of Frankfurt, Germany, to two American parents and a year-old sister.
His father, a Euphonist and Trombonist in the U.S. Army, raised him on an eclectically healthy dose of marching band, big band swing and classical standards.
His mother, owner of a beautiful persona and alto voice, showed him harmony during evangelical worship services.
As a freshman in high school, Will took it upon himself to learn the guitar. Along with acrylic paints, this became his new voice of reason.
Still one with the acoustic six string, his ventures now take him into the 1's and 0's of digital recording, and all the synthesized bliss that goes with it, leading to a beautiful (though often obscured) marriage of the two paradigms.
From Frankfurt to Virginia Beach, then Heidelberg to Springfield, MO, Will Brown now shines his light from Aberdeen, SD, where he lives with his beautiful fiance Kari and their dog Luna, writing, recording and producing from the backroom computer studio that he calls home.

Silence is beautiful.
Rhythm never stops.
Open eyes are blind if the mind is closed.
Someone knows your name.
