An electronic music pioneer, Jim Gordon has been fascinated by the possibilities in electronic music since the age of seven, when he started designing and building his own gear. He started playing professionally at fourteen, in demand as a pianist and woodwind player.

A versatile composer, producer and studio musician in the 1960's and 1970's, Gordon often built gear for specific recording sessions. A feature article on the front page of the Calendar page of the L.A. Times described Gordon's computer music work in 1977.

Gordon now composes and records in his home studio. His music embraces many different styles, from relaxing meditative ambient moods to intense poly-rhythms. Many different synthesizers and acoustic instruments are used, as well as alternate tunings and unusual compositional and recording techniques.
