064 first began performing his music in public in 1980 as guitarist and songwriter for the Artichokes. The Artichokes resembled a "new wave" rock band and played several San Francisco Bay Area clubs. The band recorded four songs with the legendary sax player Steve Mackay (Stooges, Violent Femmes) which are included in the recently reissued I Live by the Freeway album.
The Artichoke's sound was described by Calendar magazine's Mimi Chen; "Propelled by squalling babies, chicken noises, and balloon rubbing, the Artichokes take the mundane and twist it into something bizarre."

From 1987 to 2001, 064 worked with Process, the only multi-media performance group to provide top quality Post-Industrial Funk, Psychedelic Improvisation and Fake Ethnic Music designed to enhance any life style. BAM magazine described their recording "You Know/Just Let it Be" in the March 11, 1994 issue: "effectively combines quick tempos, tribal drumming, distant horns, and warped synthetic sounds to create a cyberdance experience...an indulgent treat" (Kent Lundberg)

From 2003 through 2014 064 worked with the instrumental group the Seething Brunswicks and he launched the psychedelic funk band Funkadelicatessen in 2014.
