Tyler Walker is a composer and app developer living in Highland. This is the first in a series of regular interviews with Hudson Valley Talentbase contributors.

What are you excited about right now?
I’m currently working on mastering my album Ridiculously Techno Christmas.

More about Ridiculously Techno Christmas:
Santa spiked the Kool-Aid! Deck the Halls with Lasers and Glowsticks, it’s Ridiculously Techno Christmas.

I started this project in 2012 with a 5 song EP. I added a song a year since then, and it finally feels like a record. This year I’m working on mastering it myself (my first time attempting this) and getting it up on the the streaming services. The version currently on Soundcloud is only sorta kinda mastered, with each track done at different times.

How did you end up in the Hudson Valley, and what do you love about it?
My wife and I met as Vassar students, and we always wanted to return to the area. The Hudson Valley can be shockingly beautiful, yet it’s also peaceful and unassuming. Almost every stranger I meet treats me like a friend.

Who are other Hudson Valley creatives whose work you admire?
My friend Chris Garrett has made an excellent iOS game called Moji Match!
