"I started music by learning piano with an old woman in my suburb from the age of 5 til I was 16. I then learned guitar by playing in a punk-rock band with mates from high-school/college. In France it was the big period of free-parties and I decided to make electronic music when I heard all the fucked-up sounds played by artists in Toulouse, which were kinda different from the basic techno crap (that was 1996). Naturally followed making noisy-weird sounds with mixer feedback and distorsion pedals and that's when computers appeared in my life. From Atari to PCs to linux, etc.. I learned programation because I wanted to understand how computer languages work. Now I'm a self-taught software developer and I program the synthesizers I use for making music (with SuperCollider mostly)."
