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 hyper-technology and psychoacoustics. His recent explorations emphasize analog and data-driven synthesis in both performance and installation formats. He gains inspiration and ideas from new media concepts and media contradictions with characteristics of industrialized performances. He taught at the Art Institute of California, San Diego, works as a sound technician for the Fern Street Circus, and is currently working as a programmer within the Department of Music at the University of California, San Diego. This month, he will be performing as “Hipster Modular” and as “Medical Grade”. View the accomplishments and credits on Discogs.com.
