Schadenfreude has been DJing in New Orleans' clubs since 2004, driven by a pathologically tenacious desire to keep the gothic aesthetic in the goth scene and a total disinterest in what they've been calling EBM since about 1999. In 2006 he co-founded Shadow Gallery which, like V's underground home, attempts to keep alive the beautiful things that the soulless world outside forgets. The modern dislike of romanticism is the rage of Caliban not seeing his reflection in a mirror. He has been been invited to spin at several other events in Louisiana and at Convergence 20. He has attended fourteen Convergences and has made a number of mash-ups.
