Kim Cascone has a long history involving electronic music: he received his formal training in electronic music at the Berklee College of Music in the early 1970’s, and in 1976 continued his studies with Dana McCurdy at the New School in New York City. In the 1980’s, after moving to San Francisco and gaining experience as an audio technician, Cascone worked with David Lynch as Assistant Music Editor on both Twin Peaks and Wild at Heart. Cascone left the film industry in 1991 to concentrate on Silent Records, a label that he founded in 1986, transforming it into the U.S.’s premier electronic music label. At the height of Silent’s success, he sold the company in early 1996 to pursue a career as a sound designer and went to work for Thomas Dolby’s company Headspace as a sound designer and composer. After a two year stint at Headspace he worked for Staccato Systems as the Director of Content where he oversaw sound design using algorithmic synthesis for video games. Since 1984, Kim has released more than 30 albums of electronic music and has recorded/performed with Merzbow, Keith Rowe, Tony Conrad, Scanner, John Tilbury, Ikue Mori, and Pauline Oliveros among others.

Cascone was one of the co-founders of the microsound list which focuses on issues concerning digital music and laptop performance (www.microsound.org) and has written for Computer Music Journal (MIT Press), Artbyte Magazine, Contemporary Music Review, Soundcultures and Parachute Journal.
