About E.E.L. Ambiense Industries
E.E.L. Ambiense simply began as a banner (or 'record label') for my personal audio explorations hobby in the mid-'90s as 'Tarnished Records' and was quickly changed to 'E.E.L. Ambiense' as the latter sounded contrived. After hundreds of hours poured over my synthesizers and other instruments, I began to grow bored with stock computer cases and decided to start to customize them in some way.
I discovered that there were others like this out in the world, only my hermit-like withdrawn nature prohibited me from really interacting with the rest of the world. I stayed in the shadows; lurking on PC forums the world over and simply watching. During all this I began to accept commissioned work from clients built upon word-of-mouth and samples of my work passed around with clients from graphics work spilling over into the custom PC stuff. The line began to blur. After numerous projects already under the belt, I realized, albeit too late, that people were taking pictures of their work as well. My casemod hobby which had graduated and morphed into the watercooling casemod hobby (thanks to also being an 'overclocker') re-focused the graphic design efforts so I decided to introduce myself to the online community, offering advice from experience in the hobby. After finally registering an account in the mid-2000's on my favorite overseas modding forum, Bit-Tech, I began to interact with others and started to log my work (granted a little late but I digress).
Needing a handle for modding forums, I simply used 'E.E.L. Ambiense'. Many have asked before -- it stands for 'Experimental Electronic Linear Ambiense', as my audio hobby primarily dwelled in the ambient area of the electronic music spectrum.
I've been a part of the creation of previous modding forums such as the Mod Bros (now defunct) in which I along with Kyle van der Merwe and Bill Owen of MNPCTech fame, created the Mod Bros. Podcasts, which became a bit of a hit with the modding crowd. Those old podcasts are still available on the iTunes site, completely free of course.
After we left the Mod Bros. forum and it died a merciful death, Kyle and I schemed. Fast-forward 3-4 yrs. We really wanted to start a new modding forum but we couldn't get others to get on-board the idea. Eventually we convinced Bill to warm up to the idea, and along with the help of Cheapskate, the four of us founded The Mod Zoo primarily as an outlet for our newly-created Mod Zoo Official Podcasts show as well as a modding forum to act as a sanctuary for other modders that have gotten fed up with the politics on other modding forums. The Mod Zoo was founded on the idea of a no-bullshit community that is all about brotherly and sisterly modding love. Today, with the addition of other staff, we've established an amazing modding community as well as no-bullshit honest product reviews working with minor and major manufacturers in the industry that "get it".
