Spooked

Snap Judgment Presents: Spooked

Spooked features true-life supernatural stories, told first-hand by people who can barely believe it happened themselves. Spooked challenges skeptics of the supernatural, daring listeners to confront the unknown. These stories demand listeners question their own map of reality.

Be afraid.

Leon Morimoto

Sound Designer

Leon Morimoto is a California native, born in San Jose, and is of Japanese and Chicano descent. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Audio Engineering with a focus on Post-Production. He’s been producing music since 2001 and had a presence during the advent of the internet beat scene under the moniker JOOB 森本. Leon casually composes disjointed rhythms from non-musical sounds and applies them to bottom-heavy music in the Hip Hop tradition. He also gets out a kick out of collecting old things. Current preoccupations include (but are not limited to) Jazz, contemporary cultural arts, local indigenous history, and pondering the cosmos in between scoring stories.
