Performing Arts: Music
“Hello I am Blake Allee.” That is my real name, at least I think it is.
I was born and live in Indianapolis, Indiana.
I am a producer/emcee/musician.
I write,record, play,program, sample, and mix everything myself.
My best friends are machines.
Many people do not understand me and my songs, and I understand that.
I love making this music and hope you love listening to it.
Alarm clocks can not awake me from dreaming.

I create all of my work from an overwhelming desire to communicate that which transcends explanation. I wish to bring the raw forces of creation & beauty to the surface as a means to translate experiences & visions into sharable mediums. It is my belief that art has the ability to transform by resonating the fundamental energies deep within our beings. I believe art has the ability to unlock the potentials of our highest selves.
