Been making noise in one form or another for something on the order of 24 years now... I've been playing Guitar since 1992 & working with reason since 2002. Just fooling around & playing in basements, garages... burning little CDRs, labeled with Sharpie & passed around in folded paper. I've developed a fascination with programming Drum Machines & tuning Synthesizers. I hope to someday build a Eurorack Modular System√
I played out as a percussionist for a few years starting in maybe '97 & even got a few payed gigs here & there.
But it wasn't till around 2007 or 2008 when I started to connect with other Musicians on the internet... that I actually began learning anything or developing my ear. Up till that point it was all rather self indulgent & even hard for people to listen to! My production values still suck, but you're lucky you weren't in the car with me back when I used to burn CDs & hold people hostage! :P
These 18 tracks represent the first mile of what I imagine will be a rather LONG journey into the Silver years of my Love affair with Rhythm, through cementing my new friendship with the Bird named Melody & enduring my devotion to the cruel Guru know as "Audio Engineering" !!!
It's all still quite an obvious testament to my status as no more than a pupil of Music & indeed Sound! But I enjoyed this process & I'm proud of it.
I hope you can relate to it on some level as well.
