Wobbly began as an improvised live mix radio program in Santa Barbara In 1990 and since 1994 has become the unintentional psuedonym of Jon Leidecker. Improvising music with pre-recorded sounds hardly precludes self-expression, but does emphasize the art of listening, which is at risk of getting lost in the name of the increasingly unrecognizable and distorted ideals of democracy. Previous albums have appeared on the labels Phthalo, Illegal Art, Vague Terrain, Tigerbeat6 and Important. Selected recent albums are freely available online. Previous and ongoing collaborators include Thomas Dimuzio, People Like Us, Matmos, Anne McGuire, Negativland, Tim Perkis, Xopher Davidson, Blevin Blectum, Lesser, Otomo Yoshihide, Zeena Parkins, MaryClare Brzytwa and Huun-Huur-Tu.
