After a brief stint mastering the baritone at age 12, Douglas moved on to percussion and was involved in several groups, academic and otherwise. These groups included high school jazz band, marching band, a metal band in college and playing bass for an alternative rock group called THE MULLIGRUBS. His college curriculum consisted of music theory and composition, as well as the technical stuff: Recording, computer music, acoustics, C-sound, Max. This was a launching point for the creation of sequenced, computer-based music.
After an extended period creating several works that were never officially released to the public, Douglas self-released 2 debuts in 2007. They are SATURN DAY TRAJECTORY and Saturn's sister release, an ambient work called COLOR IS A WEIRD WORD. Retic has shared a stage with: Shigeto, Mux Mool, Gunnar Lockwood, J-Phlip, Naturebot, Relcad, The Algebra of Need, Your City Sleeps.
