Your Instructor
Pilo is a producer, sound designer, and noise architect based out of Los Angeles, California. Serving as the alias of electronic musician Cameron Ward, the name Pilo corresponds to the physical sensation of “chills.”
Much like the definition, Pilo can be found tracing the intersection of neuroscience and electronic music. Through notable releases on Turbo and Boysnoize Records, Pilo has demonstrated a concerted effort to push the boundaries of techno and electro production.
