Idea Unsound is a left-field electronic music producer, DJ, algorithmic dance (“algorave”) musician, and professor of music technology that uses code and technology as an instrument to create explosive, thought-provoking electronic dance & concept music. His craft is strongly influenced by his classical training, his love for science and technology, and his roots in dance music. His sound has been described by others as ‘jazz-inspired electronic music with a futuristic twist’.
Part of Idea Unsound’s success stems from his uncanny technical prowess and knowledge of modern production tools. He approaches musical concepts from the mindset of an artist and an engineer, being able to both conceptualize great sounds and then shape them sonically into the mix. Currently, Idea Unsound performs with the bay-area artist collective AV Club, a group of like-minded musicians and technologists that create music and visuals in real-time with code at events called 'Algoraves'. Idea Unsound has several short albums and singles available on all streaming platforms, including an instrumental album titled Black Cell addressing police brutality in America.
