is a musician and sound artist who lives in Berkeley, California. He has performed and recorded with Nada Brahma, Burning Ghat, Saturn Maps, Et Saw God, Steve Berson's Acoustitronics, Interloper, and other east coast and Bay Areaw artists.
Wayne entered the composition program at the University of Maryland where he studied with composer Stuart Smith. He explored electronic music and musique concret techniques using reel-to-reel tape decks, turntables, and effects pedals. He also had the opportunity to perform with the Gamelan Seka Genta Samara under the direction of Dr. Mantle Hood. This experience became a catalyst for further study of ethnomusicology and nonwestern rhythmic principles. Upon graduation, he immersed myself in the study of Indian and Middle Eastern music, as well as performing, recording, and writing with Nada Brahma, a small touring ensemble.
In 1998, Wayne entered the composition program at Mills College where he had the great opportunity to study with Pauline Oliveros, Gail Wight, Fred Frith, Alan Kaprow, Lawrence "Butch" Morris, and Lou Harrison.
"As a composer and improviser, I user a variety of guitars, Ud, Saz, Adungu and other stringed instruments, computers, electronics and percussion to create music. Currently, I mostly enjoy collaborating with other musicians and making music for film and video"
