Michael Figge - Video Content Contributor

Born and raised at the base of the mighty Rocky Mountains near Denver, this Colorado native grew up exploring the foothills as much as he went to Red Rocks Amphitheater for all sorts of musical experiences. At an early age he discovered he had a talent for art and soon became bored with the stagnant image. He wanted what he created to move, and strived for it. This has led him down a path of education in film editing as well as animation. But he didn’t stop there. He knew there had to be more than just making it move. Why does it move, what does it move to? The answer came in the form of a self realization of his past growing up, music and sound. He always loved how concerts were more than just the music, that the lights and visuals helped create a full experience for the crowd. Now with a self taught education in electronic music production under the alias Figtronica, Michael has a passion for combining what you see with what you hear in his own stylistic ways.
