Raphael Baker (AKA Zentric Egg), is an electronic music composer and 3d artist who began playing around with music synthesizers back in the 90’s. His interest in computers began in the early 80’s. “I began coding on 8-bit computers around 1981 This lead to a variety of projects including an interrupt driven sprite generator for games as well as a graphics extension system for the Amstrad CPC range of computers. When the Amiga 500 came along in the latter part of the 80’s I started learning some of the early 3d rendering programs such as Real-3d & Imagine.
Eventually the Amiga was traded in for my first PC – a 386Ss. I began rendering on the first ever version of 3d Studio running under DOS. Next on my list of learning came digital electronics and music synthesis. By the early 90’s a variety of synthesisers had been acquired including the Casio CZ1000, Korg M1, Kawai K1, Korg Z1, Roland JP8000, Korg Wavestation, General Music S2, Gem S3, Gem S2 rack. In this era of mobile technology, my hardware synths have now been replaced with an iPad, PC, USB music controller keyboard, a Theremin and a guitar.
