Quintron has been inventing electronic gadgets and creating genre-defying noise, soundscape, and house rocking dance music in New Orleans for over 20 years, much of it in collaboration with artist / puppeteer Panacea Theriac aka "Miss Pussycat". He is a Grammy-nominated song writer with dozens of full-length albums, as well as a frequent collaborator with a wide swath of the American musical landscape, including The Oblivians, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, and New Orleans RnB legend Ernie K-Doe.

In 1999, Quintron helped to foster a DIY analog synth revival with a patented instrument called the DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog drum machine which creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns. These experiments eventually led to Quintron's focus on a weather-controlled drone synthesizer called Weather Warlock and a website devoted to streaming its music called Weather For The Blind.

Weather Warlock has also spawned a live band consisting of various musicians improvising during sunrise or sunset to the sounds of this instrument doing it's thing. Recent collaborators have included Steve Shelly, Sean Ono Lennon, Gary Wrong, Miss Pussycat, Aaron Hill (of Eyehategod), Nels Cline, Rat Bastard, DJ Lespam, and several members of the Sun Ra Arkestra.

During the Covid pandemic, Quintron has shifted focus to a couple of smaller inventions, including a simple, water-conservation device called the “Bath Buddy”.

Quintron continues to live and work in New Orleans Louisiana as well as touring, teaching, and lecturing in this world and beyond.
