Hello, I'm John Koch-Northrup, and currently record ambient / minimal techno music and own the Relaxed Machinery label. I started learning piano from my Grandma when I was five years old. I've always looked up to her. She was the church organist for 65 years at the same church in the small town I grew up in.
I started playing in bands when I was 15 and have played countless gigs in many styles of music - at first on keyboards and later shifting to bass guitar. Through school I played trumpet and piano in jazz and concert bands.
Since 1999, I've switched my focus to the ambient music I've always been passionate about and began releasing under the name "Interstitial" on labels such as The Foundry and Red Antenna. I formed Relaxed Machinery which is a hybrid label / artist collective. We all "self release... together". The artists' self release under the rM name - and keep 100% of their sales. I work on promotion for everyone. I've been playing music for 35 years, and working with the Relaxed Machinery artists and community, I've never been happier.
This was a marvelous project pursued during 4 years. It had the main intention of providing listeners pleasure and tribute to the artist.
Available music in the web is a marvelous world to uncover. There are netlabels and record labels for all genres and you can find out there everything. Go and find them out.
