Bowman is a musician and producer from Austin, Texas. He writes a lot of songs and occasionally performs live. You may have heard his music in Homestuck.
Homestuck is a web comic by Andrew Hussie which incorporates animations and interactive media to tell the story of a video game which destroys the world. It is part of his project MS Paint Adventures which has become a beloved (and feared) household name among colorfully costumed convention-goers and socially savvy Internet-users. Since its inception, the comic has received unique acclaim for its use of artistic contributions from its readers in the form of story suggestions, art assets, and especially music.
Homestuck has involved an extensive soundtrack throughout the many animations as part of a massive ongoing collaboration. These musicians, including Bowman, first volunteered by responding to an open call when Homestuck began in 2009, and many others have since been inducted. As a whole, the musicians have produced more music for Homestuck than could ever be incorporated into the comic, and a label, What Pumpkin, was established to release these contributions and other merchandise through their online music store hosted by Bandcamp.
Bowman has contributed music to several of the animations in Homestuck. His electronic piece "Sburban Jungle" has been interwoven and remixed throughout the story as an anthem for the titular world-bending game Sburb. His spoofs of two Dianne Warren ballads, "How Do I Live" and "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing", are cornerstones of the comic's use of pop culture satire.
Other Bowman tracks in Homestuck's various animations include "Chorale for Jaspers", "Pony Chorale", Warhammer of Zillyhoo", "Another Jungle", and his arrangements of George Buzinkai's "Explore", Nick Smalley's "Ohgodwhat", Mark Hadley's "Harlequin", and Erik Scheele's "Ruins". Beyond the animations, Bowman has also contributed to the many albums released by What Pumpkin, including his solo side project Mobius Trip and Hadron Kaleido.
