Spacewave is the primary music vehicle of long-time engineer, producer, and artist John Palmer. As a multi-media artist, John Palmer has produced a broad range of work over the past fifty years, working primarily in photography, painting, and music.
John Palmer received his fine arts education and training at the Corcoran School of Art and under Jack Perlmutter at the predecessor of what is now University of the District of Columbia, in Washington, D.C. He has had exhibitions at the Dickey Gallery (Washington, D.C.) and Andro-Media Galleries (Ann Arbor, Michigan). John Palmer's nature photography has focused on the interplay between sunlight and water, and his digital cinema work has focused on music videos and music documentaries. His paintings have ranged from the hard-edged op-art of the late 1960's to his floated color and air-brush atmospheres of the 1980's and 1990's.
He is largely self-taught in music, playing electric bass and keyboards after early clarinet training. Recording music groups since high school, he founded Andro-Media in 1972 to expand his audio and video production work. He has performed his musical compositions in the groups FMO, Metakone 53, Metakone 74, Soft Boulder, Oasis, Sparks, and Stormy in the Ann Arbor area, and most recently in a studio collaboration with Dub Reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry. His post-modern electronic music style reflects jazz, r&b, rock, new age, and world music influences.
