Real Name:
Dave Madden
Profile:
Dave Madden’s (aka dj webern, nonnon, Chomsky at the Bit, Wasabe P etc.) earliest memories have nothing to do with playing ball, or going to grandma’s, or riding a tricycle around Ogden: they involve pondering the oddity of the Magical Mystery Tour album art, playing a one-string guitar along with “Paint it Black” and trying to figure out what the hell some guy meant by “I am the Lizard King” Thank heavens for hippy moms!

After spending his teenage years obsessed with Bauhaus and Depeche Mode, Dave attended university to study sound engineering/jazz guitar. He soon realized that being behind the console isn’t where he wanted to be so, on a whim, he switched to composition and started writing all the weird academic music that chases everyone out of Humanities 101 — focusing on computer assisted composition and, specifically, improvisation. He uses a laptop and electronics (such a cute term) to perform and DJ all over the world, from Montreal to Chico, California, in universities, museums and ghetto coffee shops, preferring the types of crowds who enjoy John Cage back to back with Massive Attack and his own realtime manipulation of both.

Dave has worked for video game companies, film, television and all other manner of music-as-commodity companies. Now post-grad school, Dave spends his time still in front of a console, though listening to his own music, comprised of field recordings, found sounds and feedback, and reviewing music for www.squidsear.com
