Trent started WR in late 2014, after much deliberation & encouragement. It was a part-time project while working part-time for Monome.
The team has fluctuated from 1 to 3 to 1 to 5 to 1 people, over the course of the years. Currently it's just Trent in the studio, but a growing number of collaborators & partners help keep things moving. Who knows what's next..
