No Use For Humans is the brain child of Steve Honoshowsky.  The music materialized into a live act in 2003 with keyboardist, Sean Wegeler and has since had a rotating cast of musicians including Mike Biskup, Willy Carmona, Alicia Testa, Mike Noordzy, Matt McCormack, Ben Ross and many others.  Sometimes a solo act, sometimes a large ensemble, NUFH has included live film scoring, game pieces, visual art and choreography into the live performances.  The music is a unique blend of electronic, experimental, avant, prog and often film score based themes.
