background

Rasmussen is the solo project of John Rasmussen.

He is based out of Denver Colorado. His styles range from harsh noise to IDM / experimental / minimal. John began performing in 1999 after many years of recording. Originally John started Page 27 with John Gross and for years around that time he played cello for 6 years.

Rasmussen uses the following equipment

Computers running many combinations of music and dsp software (Ableton/Pure Data/Processing/VSTs...).

Drum machines and synths such as the Roland TR606, Korg EA1/ER1, Alesis Micron, Roland TB-03, Dave Smith Mopho, many others.

Old Commodore computers such as the C64 with synthcart, prophet 64, and various tracker programs emulated and not emulated.

Some circit bent toys and 555 oscillator circuits, some custom Arduino projects.
