Patrick Cowley is an electronic music trailblazer and a revolutionary in the canon of disco music. During this time, Patrick, along with his classmates Maurice Tani and Art Adcock, would create electronic pieces using the school's equipment: first a Putney, then an E-MU System, and finally a Serge synthesizer. The Lab was interested in creating sounds that mimicked nature, like drops or birds, and also very unnatural sounds unattainable any other way. Patrick was a young alchemist discovering new elements all around him. He would layer experimental soundtracks by blending various types of music and adapting them to the synthesizer.
