- Jimmy Myhrman
Message for listeners: "Thank you for listening and sharing!"
Jimmy Myhrman is an electronic music engineer in his mid 30s residing in Gothenburg, Sweden. He has a deep interest in sound design and "technical" music. Most of his work falls into techno, dub and ambient genres.
Since day one Jimmy has found it really fascinating how highly technical tools - especially those obscure ones that are almost similar to programming languages - can be used to craft such a creative and human product as music. This is the reason why he quickly formed a passion for trackers and MOD music back in the early 90s. Tracks where like small pieces of code, but code that got interpreted in your head as music rather than code that was run by the computer.
Twenty years later, and also having been a professional software programmer and hardware engineer for a long time, this very fact is still the core and the true driving force behind Jimmy's addiction to music production. The fascination from using engineering tools to form sounds instead of just "work stuff" not only makes Jimmy more creative in his musical expression, it also makes him more creative in his daily work.
Jimmy often considers the sound design process - with all its intricate microscopic details - at least as interesting and important as the composition and arrangement process. And he still tries to learn not to be too perfectionistic about the musical end-result, something that definitely does not come naturally for an engineer. Quite the opposite, Jimmy says he has a really hard time deciding when his tracks are finalized and "bug free".
But Jimmy gets fascinated not only by the technical side of things. Looking back at his own work from many years ago, he also realizes something very interesting. "A piece of music is really a snapshot of your ideas and thoughts from the time you created it. When I listen to a track from 10 years ago, I know exactly what I thought about when I wrote it, what I wanted to achieve. The sounds speak to me, it's like looking on an old photo, it brings back your memories from that moment. I really like that, and it keeps inspiring me to write new tracks, perhaps not for everybody to like, but at least for me to express myself and to always remember."

Message for listeners: "Listen for the textures of the world."
Born and raised around a fundamental respect for music, Sage Taylor has never been a stranger to eclectic sounds. With parents who endorsed total freedom of expression his entire life, the young musician from the northwestern part of the United States began composing complete musical pieces as early as the age of 8. Through friends and extended family, who exposed him to a variety of genres and styles as he grew, he quickly found himself deeply rooted in electronic music, something that would stay with him the rest of his life.
Now 23, he resides in Portland, Oregon, only 60 miles from his birthplace, where the beautiful Pacific Northwest scenery and organic feel of the wilderness continue to influence and affect his music, something he's quite keen to continue to exploit for as long as it is necessary in order to bring listeners deep, relaxing mixtures of dub, ambient and techno.
