Scientific American (scntfc – C. Andrew Rohrmann) is the musical alias of Seattle-based Andrew Rohrmann. After establishing himself as a member of Seattle’s indie rock scene with his band Hush Harbor, Scientific American became interested in the idea of using the computer as his primary instrument. His solo productions, which incorporate elements of electronic dance music, hip-hop, and rock, have been used by The Seattle Art Museum, the Sound Unseen Film Festival in Minneapolis and for well-known television ads promoting Hewlett Packard andDiscover.
In 2001 Rohrmann formed a production company along with Plastiq Phantom named Polar Empire. They have done commercial compositions for clients such as Nike, MTV, Volkswagen, and AMC. He has completed critically praised remixes for a number of indie favorites including Modest Mouse, 764-Hero, and Red Stars Theory.
