I'm Brian, aka Ubik, and this website is dedicated to my creative
pursuits: music production, homebrewing, writing and more.
I studied music from a young age, but became active in music production
when introduced to the demoscene and software such as Impulse Tracker.
I work primarily with production software such as Reason
and Ableton Live, but am looking to expand my repertoire into more
classic instrumentation and live performance. I occasionally contribute
to video game remix sites, and have
produced soundtracks for some small indie game releases. Please contact
me if you're interested in collaborating, or would like to use my work
for a project.
I've been homebrewing since 2008, and entered the professional brewing industry in 2011. I currently work at the new Lagunitas Brewing Company
plant in Chicago, but previously worked for Goose
Island Beer Company
in Chicago and
in Aalborg, Denmark. I still homebrew despite making beer for a living,
and enjoy bridging the spaces between traditional styles and modern
experimentation. There's not a
style of beer I don't enjoy, and every style and technique is fair game
when it comes to designing, creating and (of course) drinking beer.
