Billy Gomberg (b 1979, Chicago) is a musician and video artist 

living in Brooklyn, New York. His studio practice incorporates 
analog synthesis, digital treatments, acoustic recordings and 
custom programming that gives rise to electronic sound caught 
gazing at its own physicality, acoustics in love with their own 
Billy's debut CD release displays abstract and complex 
dimensions of texture and tone that might make more sense 
at first on a subconscious level before it will on a conscious one. 
Therefore, it is advised to first approach this music from a pure 
listening standpoint, free from preconceived notions of musical 
structure and form since it can defy such prosaic logic.
"These tracks are the start of my working toward a more 
immediate sound - improvisation w/software, real-time 
construction of the sound material and structure, taking priority. 
While some material comes from software in real-time, all other 
sound was generated by Roland Juno synthesizers, plus a few 
tracks incorporate my voice. Post-production editing and 
treatment were mostly employed to find the clearest expression 
of my improvisations and shape them into more conventional 
'tracks' or 'songs.' When improvising in this style, I do have a 
sense of trying to find a 'song,' and letting that take me 
somewhere else.
Somewhat more abstractly - where was I when I started this 
work - a good portion of this album was started just after I 
moved to Brooklyn in 2005.  Risking cliché, this is raw sound, a 
discovery of style (or a total lack of it).  I just make music, it's 
a space between the listener and myself. In this way, sound is 
'simple' - it's presence as we listen gives it expression, our 
listening finds its language." (Billy Gomberg)
