Brian “BT” Transeau
An electronic musician who employs keyboards and computers, Brain “BT” Transeau is called the “Father of Trance” for his pioneering innovations in electronica. His hypnotic mixes on his first album Ima (1996) took house music to new exploratory levels and defined today’s trance music style. BT has since scored several movies and video games, and has worked with David Bowie and Sting and engineered mixes for Madonna, Peter Gabriel and Sara McLachlan.
A composer and songwriter with a background in classical music/piano (he mastered the works of Chopin and Bach at the age of six), Transeau is also an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, playing both guitar and bass in the studio and onstage. Says Keyboard magazine of his sixth solo album This Binary Universe (2006), “In a hundred years, it could well be studied as the first major electronic work of the new millennium. It’s that good.”
