I have a mailing list now. Please add your email & info so you can stay updated on my shows and music:


My entire catalog of music can be found on my label site and since my last album "dooing" is now 1 year-old I have enabled free downloads of "dooing" and the rest of my albums. Also on there are 2 other past-releases, "2600" and "Source Domain", which have not been offered up in download format since they were previously released in cassette & CD format. I typically sell my newest albums at shows for a year and then give it away thereafter. I've found this makes the most sense given that I want my friends to have my music history and support my latest projects. Please visit and download my entire discography for free! Thank you for supporting my music!


Since 1999
, stevedood has been producing and performing live electronic music in the San Francisco Bay Area. Composed using an assortment of samplers, synthesizers and drum machines, as well as sample sources from live musicians and vinyl, stevedood’s music captures the essence of live electronic music, bridging genres of organic trip-hop to downtempo and electro to techno while mixing his own source material with samplers and turntables.

Stevedood adopts the role of recording engineer and song producer in his collaborations with musicians of all types, seeking to help other artists from the growing local music community fulfill their passions and further their studies in many areas of music and recording. His experience has grown tremendously from this experimental workshop for music production and his knowledge base in recording, mixing and mastering has expanded through these processes.

Steve also has a 15+ year career underway as a mechanical design engineer for a professional loudspeaker & audio equipment manufacturer located in Berkeley, CA. He has innovated many loudspeaker designs, assembly processes, custom equipment & tooling, and holds two patents on microphone designs.
