About The Generation Binary Blog
My name is Benjamin D. Gordon, my friends call me Gordo! However, I have taken the stage name Generation Binary to launch my musical performance career.
One may ask, where did a name like that come from?
- All computerized systems at their base level use Binary code to communicate with one another.
- My (our) generation is the first to grow up with personal computing technology, thus we represent the Binary Generation.
- I perform music using my trusty MacBook Pro and several computer programs to create and mix sound. That means that I am constantly generating binary code that is translated by my systems into art in in the form of music.
- It just so happens that my initials B.G. are included in the name, just backwards!
I created generationbinary.com first as a class project. Once I realized how helpful a website for my music would be, I decided to put some real effort into creating an interactive website for me to get feedback and share my material. In addition, I intend to use my blog to host discussions about music, life, and everything under the sun. So don’t be shy, don’t hesitate to leave something behind, and let me know if you want me to make you an editor so you can post!
