Michael (MIDIhead) Babbitt is an electronic music producer and songwriter who’s released an award-winning synthpop album and remixed songs from Kaskade and Late Night Alumni, has had original scores in movie trailers for The Matrix Reloaded, Silent Hill, and Mad Max-Fury Road, as well as a variety of television shows such as Dexter, CSI, Prison Break, MythBusters, Miami Ink, America’s Next Top Model (to name a few) and many remixes and original songs appearing in Konami’s Dance, Dance, Revolution video game series. He’s also produced all of ILIO’s Omnisphere patch libraries.
Michael was awarded “Best Album of 2001” for his debut solo album “Power Undiminished” at The American Synthpop Awards in Hollywood. It was front man Kurt Harland from the 80's band Information Society who presented him with the award. After moving to Los Angeles, Michael shifted his role in music production to focus on media. His first track was heard in Fox's “Dark Angel”, followed by landing a “Matrix Reloaded” movie trailer which opened up the floodgates for other placement in shows such as “Access Hollywood”, “Dexter”, “CSI” series, “America's Next Top Model”, and “Prison Break”, among others. His high energy remixes and original music have also been featured in Konami's popular “Dance Dance Revolution” video game series.
Michael has recorded with artists Shane Gibson (Korn), Peter DiStefano (Porno For Pyros), and worked with Kaskade and Late Night Alumni, and electronic pioneer BT on sound design projects.
Michael's latest endeavors have him designing patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere, in conjunction with ILIO. More info and audio demos can be found here: https://www.ilio.com/patches
