Hunksten Proudfoot - consumed by my alter ego, part nickname, all me. Poet, story teller, writer ,musicmaker, and navel-gazer... as "Hunks", I discovered the joy of creativity firstly through short story writing. Switching to become a Mac user 4 years ago, has led me to find a new medium in which to paint a picture, tell a story, intepret a feeling or translate experiences in my life to a musical form.

Along with the awesomely talented artist "Slappytwac", I refer to my brand of electronica as "Thinktronic". In recognition that all imagination and creativity comes from the Mind to be shared with other Minds.

I use a variety of music software and hardware thru the Mac platform, but it's Garage Band that I approach as a new breed of musical instrument.. to be played with, toyed and teased with, strummed, bashed and shaken, pumped with passion and dream... But I never turn down the odd marmoset, cardboard box or old boot ..everything is an instrument... Music is the Fifth Element..

In the Autumn of 2004, an early release, "Budapest Wiv Horns" was awarded iCompositions.com's Runner Up in one of the many iCompose-iWin contests, by a popular vote of worldwide members.

Use-by Date graces the pages of Hollywood 's VideoHeadShots.com website, the launch pad for 1000's of actors.

Electronica with chill-out, off-kilter and manic touches, I have been told my music is "disturbingly uplifting" - a discription I proudly embrace.

I create for the need to respond to that which invokes expression, and seek meerly the exchange of ideas, feelings good will . Enthusiasm for life, creating instead of destroying, and making connections with each other is most powerful gift we can give to a stranger .

I make music as a response to an emotion, an idea, a visual stimuli, or just any facet in my life that demands some form of creative birthing.

A grateful regular on Mugradio.com and KSVY-FM's Virtual playlist shows on FM and Internet radio, I have recently forged a close relationship with London's Thirteen[rec] and am currently working on my first official album release "Walk The Earth".

I hope you find a song or 2 in my collection that adds to your good experience here . And ask nothing more than u grant me a chance to reveal a thought or two for your consideration in the doing.
