“To marry melody, harmony and memorable songwriting with the most bleeding-edge technology possible is my passion. These are the things that excite me.”
BT is the creative force currently driving digital songwriting
and soundscaping in its evolution into the audio-visual-spiritual
art-form that will define and inspire the human narrative
of the 21st Century. He is re-mastering the obsolete soundtrack
of our late analog planet, reassembling from the chaos of
smashed bytes blurring our sampled lives a new paradigm of
beauty for This Binary Universe .
The distinct stamp of BT’s virtuoso artistry and craftsmanship is already imprinted across the wide pantheon of modern popular arts and entertainment.

as his producing, songwriting and orchestral composing and scoring talents
in collaborations with major artists, including Sting and David Bowie.
Considered the founding pioneer of trance electronica, he has engineered
for Madonna, Seal and Sarah McLachlan.
BT seemed fated for his present leadership role in new musical directions and innovations. His predilection for always seeking and ascending to the next level began when he first heard electronic music as an adolescent. “This is what my heroes Debussy, Stravinsky and the like were looking for. Technology-based music is the only idiom that packs such infinite sonic possibilities.” The revolutionary fruits of BT’s musical quest thus far are powerfully evident in the glitched-out yet warmly organic soundscapes infusing his epic albums, IMA, ESCM, Movement In Still Life and Emotional Technology. His fifth, currently untitled, studio album is nearing completion in Los Angeles and Australia (with guest artists such as Stuart Copeland of The Police). His second 2006 creation/release will be This Binary Universe, previewed by Keyboard Magazine : “In a hundred years, it could well be studied as the first major electronic work of the new millennium. It’s that good.”
