Born and raised in New York City, into a musical family. Uku Meri started playing electronic organ at age 5 and synthesizers at age 15, and has been creating unique music for quite some time.
Starting with a Roland SH-3a and the Moog MiniMoog in the mid 1970s, sound sculpting has been as important as the notes used with the sounds. The synthesizers and assorted audio tools have evolved over time, and the recordings reflect that.
His first electronic compositions were made in the
late 70s, and were well received by those who heard them. His first
audio cassette release (remember cassettes?)
was in 1983 - entitled "Seeing Eye Dogs". About half of those
selections were released on "Synthphonies" (1996), the original
pressings done in Canada. The other half of that album was composed on
computer using MIDI sequencing. That album was recognized by Riffage.com
(remember that site?), making Uku Meri "Classical Artist of the Month".
There were other favorable reviews.
Since that time, he has released many more CDs, including "Fabric
of Space", "idioSYNcrasies", "Syntax", and "Algorithms".
