Amsterdam-based Igor Zinken (1981, the Netherlands) veers, under the moniker 'igorski', towards creative use of technology, composing music / sound design and developing music-related software, all while singing along loudly to music behind a standing desk.
Apart from writing usable applications, there are several contributions to the open source community, many of which are listed on this website. While technology is great for making life easier, knowing how to make things do stuff they perhaps weren't designed to do, makes life a lot more interesting!
Or at least fun.
Getting back to music: having been musically active for over a decade-and-a-half with stints in small bands ranging from ridiculous two-day punk outfits to being responsible for anything from playing mandolin parts to writing synthesizer lines on a GameBoy while programming live-generative visual art, these activities culminated in the lo-fi "art-noise" of Firefly Makani ( you could hunt down the releases on Antilounge Records and Toztizok Zounds but it's all up for grabs on SoundCloud ).
Besides creating darker soundscapes, there is also an outlet for more positive material with a retro-tinged flavour, operating under the name The Type Three Civilization. Camp and cheap are keywords.
