Henry combines an interesting variety of Native, Pop, and Rock influences into a unique fusion of musical melodies and sounds on a minimal budget. This album explores algorithmic synthesis blending live and computer-generated rhythms and melodies into overlapping, trance-like patterns. Indian Summer, the currently playing track, uses nothing but music software. Drinking Straw Concerto uses all homemade instruments in its production. Some of these tracks feature generated sequences from the KORG KARMA audio workstation, repeated sequences, and live keyboard playing along with recorded tracks.
A commercial fisherman by trade, Henry grew up in Halibut Cove, Alaska, a small seaside community near Homer and Seldovia. He started playing keyboard music on the piano and recording at age 3 with a portable reel-to-reel tape deck. He started composing computer music on the Commodore 64 when that came out. He made his first music album in Anchorage, Alaska in January of 2000 and now sails the Pacific on his sailboat, "a Dream."
