Throughout his teens and 20's he recorded and toured in punk bands as a guitarist and songwriter. By the mid-late 90's he had discovered electro artists like Autechre, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada and Phoenecia and co-created the IDM duo Parc Mutzle. In 1999, Parc Mutzle released the “Come See-Come Saw” EP, created entirely on midi synths and samplers and recorded into early versions of Cubase.
In the early 2000's, Johno moved to VST (virtual synth/sampler) instruments and has worked as a solo artist, composing score music and sound design for many projects including his own films, both narrative and documentary features and shorts.
In 2019, he released his first two solo albums, “Givers” and “Takers.” Givers is mostly ambient textures and soundscapes, while Takers is best described as "taut electro-tension."
