//HOOKER// on the soundclouds





Soon after moving from NYC to Seattle, JT learned motorcycle and lived on the Pacific Coast, Vancouver > Tijuana for almost a year. When he got back, Hooker built an audio/ visual mobile station and started 12hr notice events- outdoor guerrilla-style street parties. ~12 hours of notice was given on where gatherings would occur. Combining a generator, misc dj gear, loudspeakers, subs, + other stuff, JT supported a wide variety of events in Seattle parks, streets, abandoned properties, events spaces, and homes.

Exploring diverse arts, JT enjoys DJ'ing eclectic tunes as well as planning and building temporary/ permanent/ semi-permanent custom visual installations/ projections for unique homes, events spaces, and live performances. JT layers refined + dirty effects and productions on DJs/ bands/ musicians' live work/ mixing, producing and collaborating on a wide range of events, including free community events, always keeping an ear to the ground and an eye to the sky.
