Torley Wong (aka Torley Linden in Second Life) is many things: a machinima filmmaker, a Linden Lab employee, a lover of watermelons. But most importantly, he’s a a kick ass techno artist. Or at least was until hyperacusis took out his ability to compose or even listen to music. Despondent for awhile, but generous to a fault, Torley decided to release his entire 230 track collection to the general public for free.
I’m no great fan of techno, but I’ve enjoyed several of his electronic ditties, from "NU SKOOL BREAKFAST," to "Bigger Breaks," and "Detroit Techno City." There’s lots of more mellow and even haunting music in his collection that’s worth checking out. Oh and I love that Torley, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, has a song entitled "Assburgers."
You can listen to Torley tell his own story on a recent edition of NPR’s "The Infinite Mind" radio show. Definitely worth a download.
