The creator of Decoy Photon, Joshua Wylie, was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. He has always been intrigued by the vast possibilities of merging electronics and physical art. He honed his skills and discovered new possibilities for his music when he studied robotics, theatre, physics and concert/jazz band in high school. Josh currently studies sound design at Capilano University which gives him an angle on music from a story-based film perspective.
Decoy Photon is the embodiment of Josh’s interests and Aesthetics. He prefers to separate himself from Decoy to help direct his focus on something exterior akin to Daft Punk or Deadmou5 though he won’t go to great lengths to hide his identity.
Joshua’s main musical influences include Nine Inch Nails, Massiver Attack, Portishead, Tool, and The Chrystal Method
