I've known Aaron for a number of years from growing up in the OKC area and crossing paths through different avenues. I've been a fan of his design and art for over ten years now; I was excited to get to work with him on an OBNE project and I'm really pleased with what he created for the Flat Light Textural Flange Shifter. This piece and its interpretation on to the pedal itself are an excellent visual interpretation, both of the phenomena of Flat Light, and how flange informs aural perception of pitch and ascending/ descending frequencies. I really enjoy that visual push/ pull. I never discussed this with Aaron but this imagery also has a nostalgic tug for me. I'm able to imagine 10-year-old Seth at the Stop-N-Go Video Store on a friday evening staring at the VHS box for the film Fire In The Sky. The images aren't even similar, but my feels are. Below is Aaron's Bio and several examples of his art. see more of his work on social media.
