"If artists, in part, are born not created, then Ladd’s life and art demonstrate this axiom. Music has been LAD’s passion as far back as his memories stretch. Both classically trained and self-taught, LAD combines the two to create a unique sound born of his mind and soul. His music entices and invites the mind into worlds yet to be fully explored, and spaces where the soul, heart, and eternal energy of existence are at once, joined together, and separate. This auditory combination gives life to itself in his music, allowing the sensory experience to be had in endless facets, as the sound of his compositions and the intricacy of arpeggios and voices serve as a vehicle for transcendent auditory discovery."
"In a world where electronic music sometimes becomes homogenized, LAD’s sound is unique not only for its individuality, but the energy of which it takes ahold and wraps around the listener. In other words, one doesn’t just hear his music, one LISTENS and is made part of the sound, surrounded by the notes, swirling and drifting in spacetime, seeing things the eyes cannot detect, hearing with the soul, and feeling the corporeal self-release into the energy that flashes in and out around the listener. His music incorporates the senses so that the notes and sounds are no longer a different entity, but a part of one’s mind, opening the emotions and breaking through barriers to higher spaces of experience, and sensory awareness." -G
