Born Sean Damon Rohde in 1968, I began my music studies at twelve. Like so many others, I learned my favorite rock songs by ear. But almost immediately I realized an intense desire to create. I was no longer interested in playing the music of others; from then on I have played only my own music.
In 1986, using my name Sean Damon, I began my serious music career. In fact, I have learned music mostly by my own efforts; I have had very little formal training. Since beginning my studies, I have also developed a voracious appetite for high culture in all forms: the fine arts, history, and science.
Above all, though, I hold Mother Nature most dear. In her embrace I find my classroom, my playground, and my church. From her, I have learned to appreciate the beautiful subtleties of existence. With her, I have experienced some of my greatest pleasures. By her, I find the spiritual reassurance to continue through hardship and maintain a productive life.
Amid ugliness of the human world, I find paradise in my thoughts. Whatever becomes of humanity, I shall continue to do my part to promote beauty.
Artists keep the sanity of humankind.
Although I am proficient on the guitar, I, unfortunately, do not play any other instrument. What you are hearing in my recordings is the sound of sampled instruments painstakingly sequenced to sound as close as possible to the level of fidelity that most of you manage through recordings of your own actual performances. I work in seclusion, hence, have not the blessing of external interpretation. By necessity, I must take full responsibly for the conception, production, and performance of my works so that my scores may be heard by others. I am exceedingly thankful for the existence of technology that enables me to bring to life scores that would have lain fallow on my shelf.
