Darren Blondin remembers climbing the walls of his mom's garage at the age of four, just to hear the sound of the garage door extension springs resonate at length as he hit them very hard with a wrench. The sounds he collects and creates – natural, electronic, mechanical and human – often make their way into his personal formula of ambient music. He is a self-taught, researching sound and music independently through a low-residency individualized BA program at Goddard College in Plainfield VT. He lives with his wife and children in Madison WI and works as a video game sound designer for Raven Software, a leading game developer partnered with Activision.
