I’m a radio producer, field recordist, broadcast artist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter based in Los Angeles, CA.
I grew up outside of Chicago and developed a musical style influenced by the electronic pop of my youth and more esoteric personal influences such as shortwave radio and the industrial architecture of the Midwest. I moved to Boston in 1995, re-branded myself as Science Park, and put out three self-played and self-produced CDs: Science Park (1997), Futurama (1998), and Disinformation (2000). I left the music industry in 2001 and turned to freelance writing, sound-art, and broadcasting, including commissions for the American Repertory Theatre, Cambridge Community TV, and Harvard University’s WHRB 95.3 FM. In 2007, I put out a commemorative anthology of my early music and sound-art titled 30: A Retrospective 1976-2006.
In 2014, I will be working on the first new Science Park album in 14 years.
This Web site is stuffed to the gills with work from every phase of my life. ShortWaveMusic is my principal project: a global sound series which aims to preserve the sound of regional and international broadcasting around the world. I’m also a radio producer and music supervisor for several public radio shows. You can sample that work under the Radio Production tab. I also like to record stuff all over the world, from Bulgarian singers to Malian drummers and Yemeni muezzins. You can find all that under the Adventures in Sound category. And if you want to step into the wayback machine, please check out some Science Park tunes and other juvenilia under Myke Music.
I’m always happy to discuss new work and commissions, or just shoot the breeze about whatever’s here. You can connect with me via Facebook or Twitter, or send me an old-fashioned e-mail if that does the trick.
Thanks for stopping by!
