Richard Hogben

Richard Hogben’s music is purpose-built for the Hackaday conferences organized by Supplyframe. Whether for an announcement video or a break between conference speakers, the tracks only requirement are an electronic earworm quality. “I usually make one short piece that turns into three of four extended themes that can be used as needed.”

Influenced by 1990s electronica including Orbital, Underworld, and Aphex Twin, Richard was active throughout the early 2000s in Southern and Baja California designing flyers for friends events. “My roommate played and produced a lot of Techno and Tech House and I was usually ‘tech support’ so I had the software [Reason] on my computer.”

In 2014 Richard started at Supplyframe as a frontend engineer, previously having worked at other companies creating websites. He has produced music and performed for the Hackaday Superconference using a combination of Reason and Ableton Live. “Everyone at Supplyframe is very creative and passionate about everything they do, and I feel lucky to be able to take part in the Hackaday community events.”
