Dirty Inputs is Aaron Dawson, a musician and VJ based in Toronto, Canada. Dawson was part of the Toronto ambient drone collective Off The International Radar. Having grown up in a small town in the Rocky Mountain foothills of western Canada, moving to the continent’s fourth largest metropolis has produced conflicting desires for nature and technology. Dirty Inputs’ euphoric synth-driven soundscapes search for the beach between these desires, between the beautiful and the terrifying. This focus has created a body of work that is often dark and brooding, and other times joyful and emotional. It is an attempt to strip away the hype and rhetoric in society to reveal the plain truths and humble existence of humankind staring into the void. https://dirtyinputs.bandcamp.com/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: .
