Catharsis' first experience with electronic music occurred during the early to mid 90's in the San Francisco industrial scene. Genres ranging from no wave, classic EBM, to electro-industrial provided early inspiration and a stomping ground that would later translate into a larger appreciation for all edgy EDM genres; most notably acid & hard techno. During '96 to '02 Catharsis relocated to San Luis Obispo, CA. In '98 he started DJing and over the next four years ran approximately 90 electronic music events from club oriented (Bad Monkey) to undergrounds that hosted many international producers/DJs and California based performers. In '02 Catharsis returned to the San Francisco Bay Area. Recently, he has turned his focus to producing various genres of techno and spending a lot of time in studio. Beyond DJing & producing Catharsis is available as an audio engineer for mixing and mastering for CD and vinyl working at the Bloody Angle Compound in SF: Audio Services (http://audio.egregious.net/)
In August 2003 Catharsis launched EGR Records (http://egr.egregious.net/)
This label will focus on hard techno and will offer further imprints exploring the edge of EDM and beyond.
Catharsis is also coding a cutting edge software environment for advanced
control of DSP/synthesis engines: SCREAM (http://audio.egregious.net/scream/)
