Why he might be annoying
With a last name like Transeau, it's pretty obvious what kind of music he makes.
While electronic music typically has underground appeal, his music has been prominently featured in films and video games.
Instead of releasing 'Movement in Still Life' as a double CD set, he released at least five different versions of the album for different markets (UK, US, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Japan), all of which had slightly different track listings, forcing the die hard fans to buy more than one CD to get all the tracks they wanted.
Why he might not be annoying
His studio was hit with equipment theft, forcing the delay of the album 'Emotional Technology' (2002).
He is a classically trained musician, well versed in all instruments including voice, guitar, and keyboards.
He has collaborated with or remixed music from numerous artists including Seal, Tori Amos, Madonna, The Crystal Method, and DJ Rap.
He reportedly has an I.Q. of 170+.
He is a versatile artist, dabbling in genres ranging from hip hop to techno to rock.
