At the dawn of the 21st Century (or shortly thereafter) glomag emerged in the NYC chip music scene, writing music on Game Boys and performing local shows. It is his contention that his interest in music grew out of an early obsession with Astroboy, coupled with the formative experience at 10 of finding a trilobite fossil in his schoolyard. He once pulled a small pile of aluminum cones from a garbage dumpster and attempted to sell them to the Museum of Modern Art. Truth.

His latest release, "DaMaGe," is available on 8bitpeoples.com. His work can also be heard on "8 Bit Operators" on Astralwerks Records as well as various compilations. He has performed on three continents in clubs, museums, galleries and festivals including a sold out show at the recent Blip Festival in New York City. His compositions have been presented at Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The American Center in Paris and on television and radio in the US, Belgium and France. His music is a major part of the award winning internet series This Spartan Life which he also writes and directs.

Glomag... provided the pitch-perfect single with his 'Pocket Calculator' Mega-Mix
– thenewgamer.com

Though the fuzzy edges around each synth line give away the bit depth, Glomag's version of "Pocket Calculator" almost sounds like a 4-track demo version Kraftwerk themselves might have laid down before heading in to their Kling-Klang studio.
