Before going "electric/electronic", Dennis Moser started on trombone with major detours by way of classical guitar, Renaissance lute, alto and tenor recorder, mountain dulcimer and a little bit of violin. As a performer of Renaissance and Baroque music, he has performed throughout the southern United States and Mexico. This grounding in classical music continues to inform and shape his aural explorations. About three years ago, he became involved in performing in the virtual reality of Second Life, where he was voted "Best Solo Performer, 2007" and has been involved with major audio and visual art installations and performances. Among the sponsors of these installations and performances have been Ohio University, the New Media Corporation, and Princeton University. He is now based out of Laramie, Wyoming.
The project, "usr/sbin" consists of Dennis Moser, aka "AldoManutio Abruzzo" in Second Life. The primary instruments are guitar and guitar-driven synthesis, both hardware and software kinds.
