Loping Buzzard / Bio

I am a Noisician because my work is "too noisy to be music and too musical to be noise," as one critic stated. I approach audio in an almost a visual way, coming from a background in art, so I hear and arrange sounds as textures, colors, patterns, shapes, transparency, weight, highlights, and shadows, and bring them together in unique spaces of varied dimensions.

Lately, I have been working on an evolving contraption I call ElectroDidj, which merges the ancient acoustics with modern electronics, centered around a DidgeriBone slide didj, designed by Charlie McMahon, that I've equipped with a saxophone microphone, a contact mic, and a pickup running through various effects boxes and expression pedals with custom settings to produce an array of effects for different frequencies.
