Steve has presented at every Toronto Sound Festival! His talks always have lots of well researched information and are presented with a great sense of humour and style. This year Steve took on what for some would be the daunting task of building the TTSH clone of the classic ARP 2600. He is going to share his experiences, trials and tribulations. Steve’s Two Thousand Six Hundred Minnie Meanie made it’s first public appearance at the October 2017 edition of Frequency Freaks (where the photo above was made) and it sounds amazing!

At he 17 moved to Toronto where he studied composition under James Tenney and electronic music under Phil Werren at York University.
