Trevor Henthorn is a trumpet player, percussionist, composer, music and network technologist currently living in San Diego, California. With a background in electrical engineering and psychology, his music explores aspects of hypertechnology and psychoacoustics. His recent explorations emphasize analog and data-driven synthesis with ’90s electronic percussion forms. He gains inspiration and ideas from new media concepts and media contradictions with characteristics of industrialized performances. He is currently teaching at the Art Institute of California, San Diego and working as a programmer within the Department of Music at the University of California, San Diego.
