Tucker (Sound Designer and Mixer, Graphics/Imaging)

An artist for over thirty years, Tucker's art forms can be loosely corralled into the four basic art groups: music, painting, film & lifestyle. He has worked professionally in Boston as a musician, San Francisco as a bohemian, and Los Angeles as a sound designer and film editor. Diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease in 2005, Tucker has lost the use of his limbs, and now uses a reflective bindi on his forehead to control a complex system of computer technology. Using this technology, Tucker creates "breathtaking images of the frailty and strength of the human condition". All the graphics, and sound mixing for the Rexroth film were done this way.
