Biography

Caught Synthbug long time ago from Walter(Wendy) Carlos' Switched on Bach as a kid. Took Piano lessons. Bought ARP Axxe as soon as I could afford it (still have it). Been playing with synths ever since.
Art school opened my mind and ear to new experiences, art everywhere; visual, aural, written, natural world, introspective, ancient.
Had a band or two, but always did better alone or with collaborations. Been through all the technology from beginnings of MIDI. Now rebuilding studio around GarageBand. Married 24 years, 2 kids, Creative Director for a major candy company. Life is busy, lots of hobbies as well as duties. You can see some of my hobbies on www.jwoodsstudio.com.
Influences: Synergy, TDream, W. Carlos (Clockwork Orange Timesteps being the seminal piece), Schutlze, Kraftwerk, Godley&Creme, Residents, Yello, Klaatu, Gong, Eno, Fripp, Belew, King Crimson, Isham, O'Hearn, Metheny, Anderson, Reich, Pink Floyd, Gabriel, the Orb, Loop Guru, Cocteau Twins, Bel Canto, Kate Bush, ArtofNoise, BT, Enigma, Balligomingo, Zero 7, Sia, Goldfrapp and on and on.
