Wyatt Keusch is a Canadian-German musician, oriented generally towards the "esoteric electronic" end of the idiomatic spectrum. He has a BFA from the Music School at CalArts, but he’s not letting that slow him down. He is a happy amateur, and might not be an ideal conversation partner if the business is your discursive tipple. He used to be signed to a record label, and performed quite often for the better part of a decade, but as time went on, he no longer needed music to occupy those specific roles in his life. These days, he prefers spending time with his wife and playing Magic: The Gathering or Mario Kart with her and their friends. This dream we call life can end before we know it - live joyfully.
Contrary to what his taste for florid self-effacement might suggest, Wyatt does sincerely love the music he makes and the people with whom he makes it. That self-effacement is merely an expression of gentle humor and lightheartedness, and should not be misread as anything more serious. Wyatt would go completely insane without regular immersion in the wholesome creative act of music-making, and therefore puts his best energy into it, be it on his lonesome or collaboratively with Luther Burbank, The Hanne K Undectet and ‘s-Hertogenbosch. He does, however, have a particular bee in his bonnet when it comes to marketing / image / branding, and feels that, while such a bee may not reside in everyone’s bonnet (which is ok!), it’s quite at home in his, and he feels no need to get it out of there. His relationship with the bonnet-dwelling bee of non-commercial artistic existence is a benign/symbiotic one, and it manifests as a desire to simply side-step the self-promotional miscellany to whatever extent he is able, leaving it to those who enjoy engaging with that stuff. Wyatt is a person who does a thing, does it well, and loves doing it. That’s all.
Since 2013, he has worked professionally as a part of Cargo Collective, the entity which develops and sustains the platform on which this lovely website is built. He is very happy to have found a place among such wonderfully interesting people. If you need a website, Cargo is the only game in town.
His only social media presence is a private instagram account, where he adoringly exhibits pictures of his cats alongside small bits of nonsense to pass the time. He has 115 “followers” (i.e. his friends, family and a handful of elusive others), and though he finds some of the implications of the term “follower” amusing, he tries not over-think things like that. In any event, there’s a link to that account up at the top of this page, so feel free to send him a request if you want in on that sweet cat pic action - just don’t expect much in the way of 21st century “influencer” spectacle.
If, after reading this missive, you’d like to get in touch with Wyatt, feel free to use the email link up at the top of this page. He’s happy to hear from any and all sympathetic parties, so don’t be shy.
Be excellent to each other.
