Gold Rush: AGH

In this edition we link up with AGH fresh of his Dumb Love single with Mighty Mark and Hello Rello. AGH productions range greatly in sonic quality and technique. Mostly they rely on performance and aleatoric approaches that lead to indeterminate results. Sometimes the compositions are sample laden and the samples are used in untraditional, erratic, un-quantized fashion. Listeners should be in for a treat.

How long have you been producing? - I have been producing electronic music for 10 years.  I have been producing several different types of music for over 15 years.

Favorite Producers/ Inspiration - DJ Haram, Holly Herndon, Beyoncé, Pharmakon, TRANSGENDER/VHS, DJK40, Drainbows, Mighty Mark, JPEGMAFIA, Cex, Blaqstarr, Nina Simone, Randy Newman. 

Biggest Accomplishments - Production wise, I would have to say the two records that I composed and released with my production trio Goldmansacks.com, CAPE GOD (2017) and MMMMM (2010), Goldmansacks.com includes fellow local producers (now living outside of Baltimore) DJK40 and Drainbows.  I am also very proud of my solo produced double album The Black Monolith Vols. 1 & 2 (2010).  In 2016, I was honored by a Lots Alive Grant and Two Person Exhibition for my quadrophonic sound installation, Upresting, at the Stamp Gallery, 2016.  Lastly, performing in 200 guitar orchestra at Lincoln Center NYC w/ Rhys Chatham, 2009 was really quite something .

Favorite pieces of hardware/software - I primarily use Max/MSP and Ableton for software.  In terms of hardware I use a range of controllers from an MPK Mini to a bluetooth mouse to a guitar, voice and cellphone.  I also just got a ROLI BLOCKS, which I think will be quite useful.
