I live in San Francisco, and I make music that is designed to be played by just myself with the assistance of looping and sampling software, but does not sound like looped music. The goal is to have as big and diverse of a sound as possible, and yet have it all come from just me. My songs all tend to be pretty poppy, and I try to avoid your general "verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, verse, chorus" style of songwriting whenever possible, but it's too damn cemented into my brain to fully avoid.

The Gentleman From Tralfamadore(2009)
My first RPM challenge album! I have a slightly modified version of this album on my site, but this is the entry I officially submitted to the Challenge. I couldn't think of a better genre in this drop down that fit besides "pop" so hopefully people know that I mean things like "indie-pop" and not "Beyonce-pop".
