MUSIC AND TECHNOLOGY
“When it comes to artists, there are generally two types – those who have to learn the art and technique, and those who possess a natural talent. Walter is one of the latter. His creations appear deceptively simple at first glance, yet they contain complex underlying concepts that make them truly remarkable. Whether painting, composing music, or designing circuit boards, Walter’s talent shines through. It’s hard to capture his work in just one word, the closest is, Genius if I had to choose. He’s an incredible painter, a talented musician, and a gifted engineer – truly a Renaissance man.”

ART, MUSIC, AND ENGINEERING. UNLIKELY BEDFELLOWS? MAYBE NOT!
The circularity of art, music, and engineering, through problem-solving in three dimensions is the foundation of these disciplines and Walter’s work embodies this interconnectedness and how these fields influence one another.
Walter has a unique approach to making music, art, and electronic equipment. He relies heavily on each discipline to inspire his work but also understands the importance of combining all three to create a complete experience.
He is constantly experimenting with innovative technology, art techniques, and music composition to push the boundaries of what is possible. This combination of music, art, and technology has helped make Walter’s work groundbreaking and influential spanning his 50-year career..
