“This is just amazing! I open the door and walk in the gallery. It’s as if I find myself literally standing in Klee’s drawing of Twittering Machines! I love being reminded what art, is.” – E.B.K.

Ed Potokar, the son of a Latin Jazz and Polka drummer, Edward Potokar started his art, design and musical career as a curious adolescent in Cleveland. He created homemade instruments as a teen and later mastered his skills at The Cleveland Institute of Art, where he earned a BFA. While there, he joined his first band and played a custom welded steel drum kit with hammers and grinders. Potokar then began inventing and fabricating unique musical instruments, affectionately known as the “boxes.” These analog synthesizers helped create a signature sound and serve as the foundation for the renowned punk/funk/art/metal/wave musical group, the Audio Artists. After moving to NYC, he founded MUSIC FOR TV, a successful downtown Manhattan music production house, and wrote the theme music for MTV’s “Unplugged.” He also toured with groups in North and South America and Europe, as well as playing locally. Potokar has created his own line of high-end ribbon microphones called Potofones, and has designed and built custom homes and designer furniture.
