Music, Audio + Video Production

We know what you’re thinking… music and audio production? Doesn’t seem to fit the rest of our services, does it?

In fact, we’ve found a lot of correlation between web development and music making. Many of the other designers and developers we’ve worked with over the years have a music background, and our founder, Scott Anderson, was a music major in college. He just also happened to be in college in the mid-’90s, just as the web was taking off, and ended up pursuing a career in technology.

But Scott never stopped making music. He played in community bands — clarinet in Claremont, CA and alto sax in Robbinsdale, MN — in the late ’90s, then played electric bass in a handful of rock bands in Minneapolis and Atlanta in the early 2000s. He got serious about recording solo instrumental music in 2003, working under the name of Room 34 (surprise!) and crafting an eclectic style that combines elements of progressive rock, ambient, electronic/IDM, with bits of jazz and orchestral music. The result is atmospheric and rich in mood. Music perfect for soundtracks.

Since 2017 Scott has been a member of the Minneapolis South High Community Band and Jazz Band, playing clarinet, bass clarinet and electric bass, as well as a founding member of Minneapolis jazz/funk/rock quartet 32nd Street Jazz. As of 2023 Scott is also the bassist for the West Metro Big Band.

Northern Daydream

Northern Daydream is a collection of covers of classic jazz fusion tracks recorded between 1968 and 1973 by some of the great artists of the era: Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Steps Ahead and Weather Report. It also includes one new original track, “Urban Hermit.”

The project was undertaken as an exercise in studying the form and structure of these classic tracks and trying to recreate the elements that gave the style and time period such a unique sound. It was also an effort by Scott to perform all instruments on the album… there are no MIDI keyboards or programmed drums. Instrumentation includes soprano and tenor saxes; clarinet and bass clarinet; fretted and fretless electric basses; electric piano, organ and synthesizer; and drums/percussion.

The album is streaming now on Bandcamp as well as all major services like Spotify and Apple Music as of April 10, 2020.

Completed March 2020

32nd Street Jazz

The debut album by the Minneapolis jazz quartet, featuring Scott on electric basses, keyboards, bass clarinet, electric guitar and percussion; along with Mike Wilson on soprano, alto and tenor saxes, flute and theophone; Mona Wong on soprano, alto and tenor saxes; and Brandon Sisneroz on drums and chau gong.

This collection of 14 original jazz and jazz-rock tunes features special guest Anne Lippin on vocals on 4 tracks, and was recorded at the Room 34 studio and on our mobile unit from December 2018 to April 2019.

Mike wrote 8 songs, Scott wrote 5, and Mike’s son Theo wrote one and also invented and built the theophone! The album was produced and engineered by Scott.

The album will be released through all major online streaming and download services on June 14, 2019 and can be preordered for download or on CD at Bandcamp.

Completed May 2019

Scintillating Scotoma

Inspired by its cover art — the result of some aimless experimentation with Pixelmator effects that accidentally came together as something resembling the migraine-related hallucination — this album is a collection of atmospheric, dreamlike, occasionally disturbing ambient/electronic/noise excursions.

Completed August 2017

The Orange Album

A political statement, of sorts, in the form of instrumental electronic/post-rock tracks with evocative titles and the musical influence of artists like Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Radiohead, Boards of Canada, Monolake, Solange and Tangerine Dream.

Completed February 2017


A concept album based on the classical Greek elements, with progressive rock characteristics and a cinematic feel.
