Micah Gaugh born in Colon, Panama is the progenitor of Puppet and represents most of his adult life that he has lived in the
East Village, New York and the adventures therein through music and visual art.. His current music project is from ‘Highrise’, a
ballet in which the protagonist is an artist who meets two women. One woman is an artist and the other a business woman. The
women meet and both relationships are lost, but he gains an art show in Paris. The music for Puppet was released as “Everything”
on Matthew Herbert’s music label Accidental records.
