Bio

Since the age of five, Rahn has been experimenting with variations of sound and velocity of music. On rainy days, he would grab his hand-me-down General Electric organ and electric-blue Fisher-Price record player and simultaneously play notes while spinning Peter and the Wolf, a Burl Ives storybook album, or a 12” of “Hey Jude”. Growing up in an artistic, scientific, and musical household, he was inspired to become a ‘whole-minded’ individual, taking into consideration all aspects of ‘being’ in order to create and optimize self.

While obtaining an undergraduate degree in biology and secondary education in the early 90’s, Rahn dug deeper within his musical roots and toyed with a used ASR-10 with a few local homeboys in St. Louis. He unfurled new license to become a creative force in the world of alternative and artistic hip hop. To Rahn, St. Louis has, and always will be “a disconnected organism barely operating on a negative feedback loop”. “Under-stimulated” and frustrated with the various negative aspects of a self-contained Midwest city, Rahn relocated to Brooklyn in ’97 to expand upon the culinary and mixed media arts.

While shifting from borough-to-borough, job-to-job, artistic genre-to-artistic genre, he realized that all artistic forces are connected and began to fuse his various artistic talents under one umbrella – a synergistic artistic experience. Rahn has recently relocated to San Francisco early in 2006, and is now creating an all-sensory, inclusive art exhibit that includes music, video, mixed media, culinary stimulation, and temperature. Rahn’s mixed media art has been featured in local S.F. cafes, as well as Triple Base Studios in San Francisco’s Mission district, and his music is receiving airplay on PUSH internet radio.

As a neophyte in the world of musical artistic production, Rahn composed, produced, and recorded his debut album Ambee Ant. He has no formal musical training; he approaches composition organically, with the conviction that has set aback seasoned artists to respect his asymmetrical emotive style of production. Fabrizio Elvetico of Illachime Quartet (Nocebo Records) states: “I appreciated “Ambee Ant, I think you've got a properly unique style…I could recognize any song you compose among thousands...”

He is currently a freelance science education author, and full-time artist exploring self and his connection to the natural forces of the universe. Philosophically, he feels that there are several individual artists and groupings of artists, humanitarians, and scientists that hold a specific place in the imprinting of his musical “ether”. Yet, there is no one human individual or grouping of such that has motivated his composed creations. There is no one individual or grouping that will hold such honor to be dubbed as influential in the thought process that is relative to the tracks produced. Music should be released in an utmost raw form, and is yielded from what has seeped from the mind at one particular time period. Music is healing indeed, and is a gift from the absolute universal flow.
