BT was nominated for "Best Electronic/Dance Album" at the 53rd annual GRAMMY® Awards for his sixth studio album, THESE HOPEFUL MACHINES, and he finds inspiration in everyday life. Long regarded within the entertainment industry as one of the forefathers of modern electronic music and a creator of the music genre known as 'trance,' BT is as recognized for proprietary technologies, software and production techniques as he is for selling-out festivals where thousands of electronic music fans flock to exult in his music.
A classically trained musician who considers Igor Stravinsky, Claude Debussy and Sergei Rachmaninoff as influences, BT attended the Berklee College of Music at the age of 15 and has scored (or had his music appear in) major motion pictures including: The Sorcerer's Apprentice; Pixar Presents Cars: Tokyo Mater; Stealth; Monster; Blade II; The Fast And The Furious, Tombraider; Go, and many more. The single from THESE HOPEFUL MACHINES titled "The Emergency" was a hit with satellite radio for over eight weeks and hit the #1 chart position while transitioning to mainstream pop radio.
Born Brian Transeau in Rockville, Maryland, BT's aptitude for music and mathematical theory evidenced themselves at an early age. The drive to actualize the tools BT envisions has led to his evolution as one of the most cutting-edge programmers and technologists in music today. He has expanded this reach into a visionary software venture, Sonik Architects. In December of 2010, leading software company, iZotope Inc., acquired Sonik Architects. The first releases from the newly formed iZotope/BT partnership include BT's proprietary Stutter Edit® and Break TweakerTM software and SonifiTM iPhone applications.
Inspiration for his art piece- “My inspiration was a sea anemone and clubbing. Yes, really. My true inspiration is providing an object that I hope will bring awareness and attention to music education's importance and significance in early learning and our public schools.” ~BT
