Chad Kettering began his musical journey as a professional classical trumpet player. For many years he performed with various orchestras and small ensembles throughout Texas and Colorado. Along this path he discovered the unlimited power of pure sound as an art form through the use of modern electronic instruments, digital audio sound processing, and acoustic instruments. Drawing upon techniques used in film sound design and musique concrete along with the deeper listening experiences of ambient music, Chad patiently developed his sound and approach over several years to emerge with a deeply personal and accomplished musical statement. Today he continues to push these influences into new directions.
