deadmau5 performing at the 2012 Sonar Festival in Barcelona, Spain.
The Sonar Festival summed up his persona, music and appeal this way: “deadmau5 is undoubtedly the big new star of electronic dance music. His audiovisual show, an impressive media display that mixes video, lights, and computer-generated three-dimensional images, is among the most effective in the world. Joel Thomas Zimmerman is the tech generation personified. He began writing songs on a completely self-taught basis in his bedroom, influenced by chiptune, the hacker spirit and a passion for technology.”
