Waveformless Soundware was started in 2011 by professional electronic musician Tom Shear. With a career spanning over a decade, Shear is best known for his project Assemblage 23, which combines elements of industrial, EBM, synth-pop, and other styles.
Over the years, Shear has also produced a variety of other bands, as well as creating highly-regarded remixes for bands such as Wang Chung, Mindless Self Indulgence, Blaqk Audio (AFI side-project) and the Birthday Massacre.
Since 2009, Shear has also run the popular electronic musician's blog Waveformless. The blog (not to be confused with the on-site blog here) includes tutorials, reviews, videos, interviews, and articles of interest to beginning and seasoned electronic musicians alike.
Shear currently resides in Seattle, Washington with his wife Megan.
