What kind of Maker are you?

I am interested in bio-hacking because changing gene expressions is essentially what I do as a sound therapist, and I choose to keep learning so that this hypothesis could mature and become something tangible. I am currently mapping out a collection of 500+ audible frequency combinations, each has its own resonant effect on a specific type of cell, tissue, organ, and biological systems. On the creative front, I'm working on an album with Aurora Activity Pony (www.auroraactivitypony.com) , a band in which I play multiple soft and hard synths (we played at Maker Faire this year, on Saturday on the solar stage) as well as a solo album www.dioskouroi.org that is more experimental and healing in nature. I'm also a science fiction fan and support anything that brings on William Gibson's vision of cyberpunk and wetware, Ray Kurtzweil's singularity, Asimov's robots and Phillip K Dick's androids.

If you could build anything, what would it be?

electronic music instruments in the form of n-dimensional polytopes

What new maker skill are you interested in learning this year?

Arduino stuff, learn how to use a 3d printer and how to design things to be printed, robotics, and other skills that are involved in building a portable band set up that is self-reliant and can survive Burning Man and other harsh weather conditions.

If you could host a meet-up or a workshop at TechShop, what would it be about?

Electronic music, computer music, building instruments.

Introduction

I am a sound therapist, multimedia artist / musician (graduated MA in Media Arts and Technology, UCSB), innovator, agent of change, lover of technology and all things DIY.
