"Welcome to the new Middle Of Nowhere, my online space since 1996. My name is Steven Johannessen. I am a visual music artist and this is my playground and gallery. Here you can see and hear much of the visual music and art work I am creating, and get downloads of my music and videos. Here you will see digital 3D art and hear synthesizer compositions put together in new ways."
"This entire site - images, music, web coding, quirks, and everything you see here are all created and composed by me in my studio here in the mountains - directly from my imagination to yours."
"Please take a few moments and have a look at the MiddleOfNowhere gallery, and explore the different areas of this site. Check out my antique radio hobby and 1920's radio collection. I hope you enjoy experiencing this site as much as I enjoy sharing it!"
Steven Johannessen - February 28, 2011
The Johannessen Antique Radio Collection
"I am an avid antique radio collector and have decided it is time to show my collection to others who enjoy the same hobby. I have been collecting since 1997 when I bought my first old radio, a beautiful Zenith console from 1936. My specialty is radios from the 1920's. I like to find them, fix them up and get them to work. Find out more in the Radios page."

Gallery Exhibition Features Digital Landscapes
"A while back I had a two week exhibit titled "The Middle Of Nowhere" at The Bascom Center For Visual Arts in Highlands, NC. In this exhibit were 24 canvases on display, a Visual Music exhibit on big screen TV to show the animations and compositions, and a lecture for those interested in how this is created. Images from this show and much more are shown here."
