TAYLOR DEUPREE - ORIGINAL MUSIC AND SOUND DESIGN

Taylor Deupree is an accomplished sound artist whose recordings, rich with abstract atmospherics, have appeared on numerous record labels and well as in site-specific installations at such institutions as the ICC (Tokyo, Japan) and the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (Yamaguchi, Japan). In the 1990s, he started out making new noises that edged outward toward the fringes of techno, and in time he found his own path to follow. His music today emphasizes a hybrid of natural sounds and technological mediation. It’s marked by a deep attention to stillness, to an almost desperate near-silence. His music shows a marked attention to the aesthetics of error, to the short circuits not only in technological systems, but also in human perception.

And though there is an aura of insularity to Taylor's work, he is a prolific collaborator, having worked with, among others, Stephan Mathieu, Christopher Willits, Kenneth Kirschner, Eisi, Frank Bretschneider, Richard Chartier, Savvas Ysatis, and Tetsu Inoue.

Taylor dedicates as much time to other people’s music as he does to his own. In 1997 he founded the record label 12k, which has released over 80 recordings by some of the most accomplished musicians and sound artists of our time.
