Renowned composer and pianist who blended blues, jazz, hip hop, and rock into his own interpretations.
He started playing piano at age six, but really fell in love with the instrument after hearing 'Round Midnight by Thelonious Monk.
His performance pieces often involved stitching, re-arranging, and altering already-existing audio and video material.
His family raised him in Houston, Texas.
He re-interpreted Fats Waller's piano stylings into modern dance.
