Edison is an electronic musician based in San Francisco, California. He composes and performs with his laptop and hand made Monome controllers, built from lunchboxes. Yes, that’s right - converted lunchboxes. He has brought a new sound to the already exploding beat scene, by employing a closet of dusty old instruments, glitched out percussion and perfect melodies.
Originally spawned in the pine trees of upstate NY, his musical father and brother were the biggest influence on his sound and passion for music. Growing up on guitars and 4 tracks, Edison was forever noisy, soaking up the long winters in recording recluse. After leaving his home state, he quickly picked up new methods and musical ideology. He learned digital methods, and strived to make them organic and human.
After landing in the Bay Area ten years ago, he started producing tracks for friends and fellow musicians. He dabbled with simple electronics and new performance methods, while building his own machines to exploit his one man band.
Edison has since been involved with artists from around the globe, including indie rap stars such as Aesop Rock, Sole, 2mex, Existereo, and Bleubird. He has been invited to play shows all over the U.S. and toured through Europe. Over the years he’s shared the stage with the likes of Daddy Kev, Elliot Lipp, Nobody, D-Styles, Nocando, Daedelus, Jogger, Cage, Tehn, Mike Gao, Thesis Sahib, Altitude Sickness, %, DJ Pain, Motionless, Babelfishh, and his rap crew Papervehicle.
Edison has also been invited to play and speak about his production and performances at California Academy of Sciences, Princeton university, and Grey Area Foundation For the Arts, at events bringing together the biggest names in the San Francisco, monome and electronic music worlds respectively.
