San studied elementary education at McGill University. He is well known for his enigmatic style of turntablism, which uses an unusual collection of samples. He has been known to use samples from Charlie Brown, old comedy sketch routines, people sneezing, and people reading a menu in Cantonese. He is well known for his cheerful demeanor at concerts and having a good sense of humour.

San is also an illustrator and an artist, having designed all of his album covers. A comic book drawn by him is included as the liner notes to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and he has released a full length graphic novel, Nufonia must fall, which includes a soundtrack CD composed by himself. Some of my Best Friends are DJs includes a chess set as part of the packaging. Nufonia Must Fall (ISBN 1550225588) is a graphic novel written by prominent turntablist Kid Koala. ...

This album was supported by a cabaret-style tour throughout North America, Europe and Australia, known as The Short Attention Span Theatre, which featured an unpredictable opening act, 3 Djs on 8 turntables set up like a band, a bingo game at intermission, among other tremendously quirky surprises. Following this tour Kid Koala has performed DJ sets all over Asia, discovering new fans in destinations such as Iceland, Eastern Europe, Russia, and South America all the while working on a fresh new book (apparently about a mosquito trying to play a clarinet) and a unique puppet show set to take place in 2008. Cabaret is a form of entertainment featuring comedy, song, dance, and theatre, distinguished mainly by the performance venue — a restaurant or nightclub with a stage for performances and the audience sitting around the tables (often dining or drinking) watching the performance. ... Genera The mosquito is a member of the family Culicidae; these insects have a pair of scaled wings, a pair of halteres, a slender body, and long legs. ... Two soprano clarinets: a B♭ clarinet (left) and an A clarinet (right, with no mouthpiece). ...


San popularized a method of playing the turntable like a melodic instrument, where a long, single note is dragged under the needle at different speeds, creating different pitches. Since this method of adjusting pitch is imprecise, the resulting notes waver and bend. Thus, in the song Drunk Trumpet, San uses this method with a trumpet note to simulate a drunken trumpet player, interspursing drunken vocals to complete the effect.


San is currently working on a new Kid Koala album, entitled "Your Mom’s Favourite DJ" (ZENCD127), which is due for release on 25 September 2006.

Koala -- Kids' Planet -- Defenders of Wildlife (285 words)
The koala resembles a bear, but is actually a marsupial, a special kind of mammal which carries its young in a pouch.
Koalas can live as long as 17 years, although high mortality rates (due to car fatalities and dogs) for males lower their life expectancy to 2 to 10 years.
Once numbering in the millions, koalas suffered major declines in population during the 1920s when they were hunted for their fur.
