Early Life

Amnon Freidlin was born on March 14, 1985 in Leominster, MA, and spent most of his formative years in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh. He was exposed to a wide range of musical influences in his childhood and by age 15 was a noted jazz guitar player at the Creative and Performing Arts High School (CAPA) in Pittsburgh. After graduation, he attended the Esther Boyer College of Music at Temple University in North Philadelphia to study jazz guitar[1], composition, and theory under Ben Schachter, Terrell Stafford, Tom Giacabetti, and Alexander deVaron.


After college, Freidlin was embedded in the experimental music community in Philadelphia, playing a leading role in composition and performance on guitar/electronics in the chamber-punk ensemble Normal Love. During this period, he was awarded multiple composer grants[2] and was an active participant in the improvised music scene[3].

In 2008, Freidlin relocated to New York City in part to join post-minimalist group, Zs (band)[4]. It was during this period that he began to expand his practice to incorporate more electronic aspects and instruments into his music which quickly connected him to new and different sub-communities of the avant-garde. It was during this same period that visual design became central to his artistic practice, through album art direction and graphic design work at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This led to design projects for Patti Smith, Michael Kors, Laurie Anderson, Alexander Wang, Rosanne Cash, Steve Reich, John Zorn and the New York Philharmonic.

In collaboration with multimedia artist Hyperbody aka Diana Joy, Freidlin participated in the audio/visual character-based performance art unit Mouthguard88. The pair’s sole, self-titled album was released on Slimetrax in 2015.

In 2016, Honnda emerged as Freidlin’s primary music outlet, a solo electronic effort variably described as new-jack[5] slime, hyperkinetic funk, avant-bass, psychedelic club, and future-pop”, with a central focus on creating a “portal to infinite victory”. His debut release, Diamonds in the Microwave, was released in 2016 on Orange Milk Records. It was followed by 2018’s Maraschino Mic Drop, also released on Orange Milk.

In 2016 Honnda was commissioned by Barneys New York to provide sound design for a window installation by animation studio We Are Prism alongside work by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park)[6]. He went on to score installations by Nick Cave (performance artist), Louise Bourgeois, Comme des Garcons, Prada, Christian Louboutin, and more.

In 2020, Honnda was recruited by Bit Fry Game Studios to produce the signature soundtracks for the Ultimate Rivals sports video game franchise.
