I've been making music and multimedia under the name algorithm18 since about 2001.
I haven't played live in several years, but I do enjoy it.
Most of the music on this site is made with freeware music programs, but I also use hardware. I love harware samplers. Sourcing sounds off of vinyl and chopping them up in a sampler/sequencer is a big part of my creative process. Some favourite samplers of mine have been: Yamaha SU10 , Casio SK1, Korg ES1, and my current fav, the Akai MPC500.
