Chris Anderson

About: I care deeply about LED meters that bounce in time to your fatty musical creations. Nothing pulls at my loins more firmly than converting kinetic energy to electrical energy and then encoding said energy for storage, editing, and  commercial distribution so that it may be later converted back into compressions and rarefactions in the atmosphere for your listening pleasure.
