Rob Wright has been playing with electronic music equipment and producing tracks since 1987. He entered the rave scene back in 1991 doing visuals (VJ) for parties mostly located in Orange County and LA area. In the mid 90â²s Rob helped form The Unity Project which went on to throw a number of parties in the Southern California area. For a brief period (2001-2002) Rob moved up to Northern California. During this time he created and hosted a community access television show called ZEN tv. The shows format was based on KUCIâs Riders of The Plastic Groove. In 2003 Rob moved back down to So Cal to return to the entertainment industry. He currently runs the sound department at a successful video game developer in LA but spends most of his free time nurturing his pet project 3MT (3lectronic Music Technician). The primary focus of the 3MT project is expanded mobile live production. Rob has put together âthe rigâ to facilitate this goal. The rig consists of an 3MT stretcher mounted with a mixture of audio hardware and software solutions all running through an on board PA. You can think of the act as a sort of techno side show. When playing live, 3MTâs main focus is on Guerrilla performance. It all started with Robâs first gate crash back in 1998 at Nocturnal Wonderland. Since then he has performed at a number of shows. Speakerheads, Spaceland, Mr. Bubbles, Nocturnal Wonderland, JuJubeats, Coachella Music Festival are just to name a few.
