H e l l o .

I'm Alex Smith, video game and electronic music enthusiast!

You might have heard of me as The Cynic Project. My song Matrix ][ achieved six million downloads on mp3.com back in 1999. I'm fascinated by the hidden beauty encoded in deterministic processes and stuff like fractals, cellular automata, generative music, and emergent behavior.
