about

Shortly after selling my drum set to help pay for film school, a long time friend and music collaborator of mine exposed me to the world of electronic music production. Although I had sporadically experimented
with writing music since junior high, I didn’t immediately take to composing music via software until I took a job as a video tape operator at a film post facility in San Francisco.

Primarily, the songs on this album are more about exploring the techniques and limitations in my creating electronic music. The overall novelty of these songs stems from the use of professional video editing
decks in creating the drum beats and scrub & scratch tracks, mostly lifted from old scifi movies and 70’s cartoons.

To enhance to the humor of the experience, I adopted a faux “DJ” persona, DJ Travieso, to help sell the concept amongst friends and family. When I decided to continue my exploration of writing music, I discovered that the DJ Travieso moniker was already taken by a legit musician. Thus, Suboken became my new handle.
