BT: New Frontiers
For over 15 years, Brian Transeau (aka BT) has become one of the foremost pioneers of electronic music. He has successfully blazed new sonic trails, while remaining on the bleeding edge of technology.
BTs musical journey began at the age of five. Born in Rockville, Md., he started off studying classical music composition and was conducting at the Washington Conservatory of Music by the age of seven. He attended Boston’s esteemed Berklee College of Music and went on to score numerous popular video games and movies, including the Oscar-winning “Monster.”
In the 1990s, he made a name for himself in the electronic music community with trance anthems like “Flaming June” (a collaboration with Paul van Dyk) and a globally recognized rework of Tori Amos’s “Blue Skies.” In 2006, BT showcased his intellectual side when he released This Binary Universe, an album recognized for its use of hyper-experimental production methods and unconventional soundscapes.
Now, BT can be seen touring the globe. He has circumvented the planet bringing both his laptop symphony and live band to clubs, festivals, and everything in between. In order to keep ahead of the pack, BT developed his own successful software company, Sonik Architects, which features audio products he developed.
