The Forest for the Trees: Khonnor
Connor Long (born July 24, 1986) is an electronic musician from St. Johnsbury, Vermont (originally from New London, New Hampshire) who releases music under the name Khonnor. He has published works under several other names, including Grandma, and I, Cactus.
He uses low-tech instruments such as a cheap microphone and an old computer, an amp, a guitar, and experimental electronics in his recordings.
He started making music in high school, unbeknownst to his parents. At the time of the documentary below (recorded by MTV Europe in 2014), he still hadn’t really opened up to them about his music.
He digitally released his first album, Handwriting, when he was 17.
