"I live in the middle of nowheresville, literally on an island in the ocean. In the city, I had access to other people's recording studios. Out here I need to be self sufficient when I want to record a song I’ve written or record a friend’s band. I use a powerful desktop computer with a digital audio workstation and an array of microphones. I combine acoustic and homemade electronic instruments—theremin, vocoder, various synthesizers and effects processors. I even reprogram Nintendo Gameboys to create music. The signature sound of my band, 8BITches, was created with 5 Gameboys playing in counterpoint. "
