in the process of completing my albums, i have hoped that they could, possibly, reach someone i do not know and, possibly, thrill them. i humbly affirm that i am, at heart, purely into this music because i love to play with sounds. i like my sounds to come from somewhere sumptuously creative and unique, and i like to imagine you, somewhere, giving these sounds space and depth and texture within your own experience. electronic music is so exiting for me because it is infinitely visual, infinitely acute to the tiniest of pops and clicks and murmurs and spaces, infinitely obtuse in its expanding of the human aural experience with subfrequencies and resonances and patterns and layers. as conductor more than musician, my orchestra is filled with the natural world of dolphins and birds and oceans and sky, the unconventional static and hum of machina, and the mundane 8bit blip given first chair next to a speaker face down on a pile of magazines. much like classical music, the conductor concerns themselves with the placement and juxtaposing of sounds within the context of theatrical progressions, always layering, always building and releasing, always intertwining and revisiting, always aware of the dancer the piece is written for… i hope you enjoy these recordings.

About coloringpad

where was i? leaman has had his ear on a speaker since the art of noise came through his plastic shack radio, tuning in static and pops and clicks and thumps until he found and then dove headfirst, smiling, into electronica. rave. the repetitive beat led him to be a (rather unsuccessful) dj named puppy who spun belgian and german minimalist ambient and tecno. a miracle accordion repairman blessed him with a roland tr808 and he realized that he could make this thing called music, so he bought 12 guitar pedals and started reinventing the song that never sleeps. another miracle gave him salisbury, bertaccini and agelasto in a band that could not be named, but could consider the hum of a speaker a song. as radiate sky,he became a man made entirely of audio cords and instruction manuals and things that need electricity to make sounds. he misses improvising at the underpass and the dancing goat, where he found the people that make that thing over there and aether generator, and so here we are. where am i? leaman is not a musician... he is a fingerpainter with audio weapons. feedback loops and bitcrushers and pedals and things with lots of knobs and buttons and switches and sliders. currently working on two albums (as coloringpad and with aether generator) and making pedals and trying to find you.
