Who is Senator Jaiz?

I am an experimental electronic composer and performer. As a vegan, I am trying to show the world the spiritual, environmental, and compassionate results of a plant-based lifestyle through my music and actions. I am also the composer and audio point person for the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in the Digital Media department. 

I say experimental as my music does not fit nicely in any single box. I am a product of my influences, which include Jean-Michel Jarre, Gary Numan, Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Massive Attack, and, well, this list could get pretty long, so let’s leave it there.  

My music is geared for the soundtrack of life. It could be a backdrop for the day to day, or even better for RPG and board gamers, filmmakers, manga and anime fans, readers, students, and all other dreamers. The soundtrack quality of my work means it can be your background or the center of your full attention. Much like Brian Eno described ambient music.

Vision

To bring music into the world that suits the purposes of the listener, no matter what that purpose is, be it studying, relaxing, meditating, playing games, zoning out, or listening intently.

Execution

I combine rock. electronic, orchestral, ambient, and experimental sounds to create my soundscapes and music. I try to find that thing that no one else has. Sometimes I succeed, other times I don’t. To me, it is the journey that counts.

Mission

To bring a bit of relaxation, wonder, and spiritual enlightenment into the world. To alert the world to the plight of our environment and the innocent creatures that we exploit. To teach the world about the simple choice to aid both, which is a plant-based diet.
