Bio

Mike Hodnick is a live-coding experimental electronic musician and programmer. He combines his 15 years of programming experience and lifelong background in music to produce algorithmic music and one-of-a-kind performances. Mike fuses his love of percussion and dense rhythms with the perspective that musical patterns and time are rules that can be bent and broken.

You can find Mike performing live-coding sets in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area.

When not making music, Mike works as an independent software programmer and builds everything from web sites to mobile apps to enterprise line-of-business systems. He has deep experience with .NET and open source tooling. Mike works on the full stack of technologies, but has a sweet spot for UI and front-end development.

Mike is originally from Duluth, MN and currently lives in Chaska, MN. He enjoys Minecraft, cooking, playing ice hockey, and camping.
