tss was formed on october 18, 1997 due to my desire to combine circuit bending technology with module tracking technology, and bring forward an 8bit or fm synth sound overall. i cut my teeth along greats like bogdan raczynski, virt, ilkae, proswell, brothomstates, machinedrum, vsnares, and countless others who continue to pursue their individual blends of electronic music accordingly. fast forward to the early aughts, when i was on napster and decided to search 'metroid rock' or something along those lines to see if others were creating video game remixes with instruments or electronic elements. fast forward a little further, i meet minibosses, chromelodeon, etc etc, play a ton of magfests and help to create a healthy scene in general with a smattering of both original 8bit as well as vgm album releases.
august 2005 or so its decided that tss should go from a live solo outing to me focusing on the drums and bringing shizz stalwarts housethegrate, kirby, and spookmeister c into the mix, along with a wide range of other shizzies and vgmixers, most notably cacomistle, shnabubula, eddy from chromelodeon, alex mauer, pieness ...and you. shawn phase of temp sound solutions of north america has appeared on over 999 albums and performed on 3 continents, with acts such as the fucking champs, trans am, a minor forest, the minibosses, strike anywhere, david cross, tons of electronic and 8bit and mathrock acts from all over the world. as of today, the last 510 or so days in a row have been a continued trek of 'stock reports', or daily practice take recordings where songs are learned on the acoustic drumkit with a large wide-array pa. c&s stock reports has run for 10+ years and temp sound solutions will release an astonishing 300th release on its 22nd anniversary this october, with an indefinite number of vgm outings lined up for the next 22 years.
