Who is BT?

Brian Wayne Transeau, better known by his stage name, BT, is a Grammy-nominated American music producer, composer, audio technician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter. He is an artist in the electronica genre – most often considered a composer of trance music, but known to work within several other styles. BT has also produced and written for artists such as Paul van Dyk, Peter Gabriel, 'N Sync, Sting, Blake Lewis, Tori Amos, and Tiësto. As a film composer, he has worked on films such as The Fast and the Furious and Monster.

BT is known for pioneering a production technique he calls the stutter edit. This technique consists of taking a small fragment of sound and then repeating it rhythmically. BT was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for his song "Somnambulist". This song was recognized as using the largest number of vocal edits in a song. BT's work with stutter edit techniques led to the formation of software development company, Sonik Architects, and the development of the sound-processing software plug-in Stutter Edit. The company also released a music remix app for the iPhone called Sonifi.
