my band consists of me, my computer, my software, my instruments and lots of sounds from the real and virtual worlds.
Why this name?
its my name. I used to live with another guy also named michael and my friends called me mike adams to differentiate. So i started writing it mikadams. I still prefer to be called Michael.
Do you play live?
I just played my first show in years at the Dot Dot Dot Art Space in Lawrence Kansas on October 18th. It was a multimedia event with video art projection and partially improvised computer music madness with a wee bit of guitar and throat singing. A few dozen attended. None bought disks. It was f***ing wonderful!
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Hmmm. I have a lot of thoughts on that, too many for a little box this size. I think its good, by golly. I like mp3s.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Also you can check out
Charles Rice Goff III's site for Taped Rugs Productions. I've been involved with Charlie for a number of years in such projects as The Magic Potty Babies, and more so.. Turkey Makes Me Sleepy.
Your influences?
I like a lot of music. I think it would be pretentious to name names. I sound like a lot of other people but most of all I want to sound interesting and unique.
Favorite spot?
I love Lawrence. I don't drink so I don't go out much, but there is good music and some really good venues for music here.
Equipment used:
HP Pavillion desktop machine, f***ing useless ass antique Dell Laptop, Reason 4, Ableton Live 7, lots of VST synths. My Fender Stratocaster, Fender Squier Telecaster, Alesis monitors. My rather cheap EV mic, A couple of M-Audio midi keyboards. And I love my M-Audio Microtrack 24/96 recorder. Field recording is sooooo cool!
Anything else...?
Lots of digital samples,my friend farting, some guy speaking Polish, an old man I work with ranting about his hearing aide, people telling me their hat sizes. I like banging on things, recording myself trying to beatbox. Organic sampling is cool, the sink, water boiling, the washing machine, etc.
