Byron’s music doesn’t fit into one category. It is a hybrid of EDM, Trap, Dubstep, and classical music all rolled into one. People listen to it and say “Yea that’s EDM (or Trap or Dubstep), but it’s different”. Byron thinks that electronic music is the classical music of the future.
In the 80’s Byron was introduced to electronic music. His favorite musicians were The Cars, Gary Newman, and Brian Eno. He discovered Trap music only a couple of years ago, and his favorites are Martin Garrix, Milo and Otis, and A-Track.
In 2009 Byron discovered that he was an alien abductee and this upset his entire life for a time, because he discovered there was “something under the bed and in the closet”; it turned out to be Extraterrestrials. The biggest influence on Byron’s music is music from extraterrestrial beings. He has heard their music several times during alien contact.
In 1997 he had the first experience of hearing music that seemed other worldly and strangely beautiful. It was 2011 when he heard “very strange and beautiful music which was not on the CD I was listening to.” Then in 2015 Byron heard “Out the Speakers by Milo and Otis with A-Track, and a year later he bought a synthesizer and started to experiment. He did not know how to play a keyboard, or read music, but he could play intuitively where it sounded like he knew how to play.
Art had been his main creative outlet and he had achieved a great deal of success with galleries and museum shows. He has written three books, one nonfiction about his encounters with alien beings, a science fiction book and a book of poetry. He has published 6 albums of music 73 songs.
To him making music is like making art or building a house. He treats sounds as objects and constructs his songs. He goes into the studio with no preconceived notion about what he will do. He picks his drums and records them, and then starts to play intuitively. It’s a lot like the action artists of the 50’s, however instead of slinging paint he is slinging music.
Music that does something to the listener is his goal. One of his listeners’ said this on Amazon about his second album Learning to Live With Rockets; “This album is fantastic! When I'm feeling stressed, tired, happy, or energetic, it's perfect. That being said, the songs are exactly what you need at any given time! You can tell the artist puts his heart and soul into creating these tracks. Only someone that feels deeply and is connected to the universe could make music that lifts you to a higher place. I look forward to anything else Byron creates!"
