Genre Description

An electronic form of music that originated in Detroit that used electronic sounds to create dance music. Techno is a sort of combination between the soul of Funk and the mechanic preciseness of electronica. Often, techno eschews typical song structures, separating it from electropop, building long, repetitive soundscapes -- though not as far in that direction as ambient. House is a big influence, and techno can be seen as a form of house, in fact. There are many different flavors of techno, including Detroit techno, tech house, trance, hardcore techno, gabber, acid techno and IDM, among others.

A Sullustan mechanic.

Technicians, also called technos, technicos, or mechanics, were people who were skilled in making, fixing and understanding technology. Almost every urban area had some technicians employed at factories, shops and space stations and only the most primitive civilizations went without one.

Podracer mechanics were largely unsung geniuses that could exploit the powerful machines to their fullest capacities.[1]

The Ugnaught, Rorand Zuzz was a technician who specialized in medical technology.[2]

Imperial Lieutenant Endicott served as a docking bay technician aboard the second Death Star.[3]
