Mike Hodnick is a live-coding experimental electronic musician, composer, and programmer. He combines 15 years of programming experience and lifelong background in music to produce algorithmic sound and rhythms. Mike thrives on using technology in unique and unconventional ways to create music.
You can find Mike performing live-coding sets in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area.
By day, Mike is an independent software developer and most often works on public- and internal-facing web applications using node.js and .NET stacks.
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.
