Hello, my name is Ryan Dean… currently living in Charleston, South Carolina.
Some of you may know me from various functions such as NAMM/Moogfest/Ultra, etc…
Been into synths and sequencers since I was a little kid listening to Juan Atkins and wondering how it was all made.
I’m mainly into algorithmic/generative stuff with an emphasis on non-linearities, bitwise logic and cellular automata, physics and visuals. I beta test and consult with various audio companies and always try to influence the hardware and software makers to open up new horizons for composers and producers.
Kind of drifting towards orchestral and filmic stuff these days in my personal music and I enjoy getting all of these programs like Reaktor, Reason, Bitwig and Softube talking to and controlling one another in an interconnected fashion in order to study emergent phenomena.
I try to be helpful where possible and if I can speed up someone’s search for a certain technique or algorithm Im known to chip in a discovery or link. I enjoy being a kind of librarian for all things synth… I may come across as terse or cold, probably due to mild aspergers.
