Tyler is a quickly-rising producer from Long Island, New York. Though only recent in fruition, his pursuit began as a youngin'. An exposure to Super Nintendo, Doom, and Windows 95 would manifest in him a technological fascination; one which would continue growing to this very day.
As the 90s came to an end, Tyler first began to realize his infatuation with syncopation - his adoration for the a-minor - his passion for the pentatonic... the music took hold. As a teenager, his gravitation towards the tunes stemmed from his father's influence. Riding on the waves cast by prog-gods like Yes and Jethro Tull, coalescing into the Summer soundtracks of junior high masterminds like locals Brand New and Taking Back Sunday, lead to a fever with only one perscription:
more cowbell more music. While there is admittedly no such thing as a perfect song, there are those that come dangerously close in the right moment for the right person. Pulling suggestions from the likes of his family, friends, and whatever FM radio had to offer, he was desperate to find the perfect song each day.
Tyler juggled both his love for computers and music, all the while becoming more and more of a keyboard-wielding stereo-head. It was truly only a matter of time before the two circles would overlap to create the Venn Diagram that defines Tyler Roper's present. One circle encompasses a cubic, chrome-edged compilation of knowledge and love for computers, software, programming, technology, and video games, while the other represents the fluid and evolving cocktail of artistic expression. Within their overlap lies a wondrous and striking tour-de-force.
Tyler hopes to reward any listener with a pleasing blend of homegrown melodies and beats spanning all different genres, with influences from a wide array of styles. So why not head to his Soundcloud and take a listen?
We think it's in both yours and his best interests.
