Patten played keys (B3, piano, and synths) in club bands and original music groups from middle school (‘60s) through college (late ‘70s). During the early 1980 years of record-high interest rates, Patten, then a partner in a local music retail store, decided to hone a new skill-set. With distinction he completed the Recording Workshop work/study program and set about the southeast engineering and producing in dozens of recording studios with hundreds of unsigned and signed artists.

Traveling from Newnan GA to Nashville TN tracking and mixing many of today's country music stars; and from Muscle Shoals to Memphis recording R&B with producer legends, Pat, in 1987, decided to build his own business. After engaging respected studio designer Steven Durr, construction for Commercial Sight & Sound (CSS) was underway. Patten, the sole proprietor, started servicing the needs of commercial and corporate clients in the West GA and East AL region, but kept his “ears" by mixing music -- it was the good ‘ole days of knobs, tape and razor blades, midi time-code chasing and sync-to-picture. CSS handled event coordination and media management (planning and placement), and branched into audio, video and multimedia departments. The company even formed a boutique record label, Tikal Records.

The bleeding-edge decade of the 1990s roared into high gear after a significant multimedia opportunity from a global corporate customer. Exploiting emerging CD-i technology from Philips, CSS was recognized as an industry-leader with award-winning multi-language, multi-national projects -- including one of the world's first full-screen, full-motion CD-i titles, a high-tech capital campaign for the Georgia Tech Center for the Arts (now the Ferst Center). Numerous commissions were also completed including 16mm film and original soundtrack projects for the Callaway and Morningstar Foundations.

The mid ‘90s brought CSS a new identity and image - Kinekom (moving communications), as well as new technologies -- the Internet and World Wide Web. Major web projects followed for worldwide organizations.

After much debate in 1998, Kinekom wound-down its core business units (audio, video and multimedia) to focus solely on Internet software development. Mr. Patten led the company through a successful $2.1M private placement equity investment to create Effinity, a web-based collaborative product and process. As Effinity V1.0 was ready for commercial availability, the Internet bubble burst. The firm was unsuccessful in securing its $25M mezzanine round of financing and shut-down its operations during the summer of 2000.

During the first decade of the 21st century Patten navigated the turbulent technology waters. He co-founded Politically-e Inc. where he served as Chief Technology Officer and SVP Member Services. The Politically-e Inc. web-based application helped political candidates and public officials better manage their campaigns and improve communications with their constituency. He also served as Chief Operational Officer for PsyPractice Inc., an online mental health assessment company with patent-pending testing methodologies.

January 2005 marked Patten's (re)focus to the independent music sector. His current partnerships include: Jammates Records LLC, Jamgood LLC, and various music publishing entities.
