I've recently returned to my love of electronic music after a twenty-year hiatus concentrating on visuals as a Hollywood Cinematographer. Now I make a little music, edit a little video, do graphics, and author DVD's, but as you can see, (and with heartfelt thanks to Bruce for his help)... I am mainly building custom limited edition Modcan compatible modules these days!
