I'm a 31-year-old male who acts younger. Mainly a vocalist and keyboardist/pianist doing computer arrangement/production w/ Ableton Live. I also enjoy playing bass, guitar, drums (acoustic and pads), effects (kaoss pad, pedals) and turntable (scratching). I don't have live playing experience, but I'm v-e-r-y serious about music (I'm also v-e-r-y fun about it). I'm not a wizard and my style is still a little sloppy, but will mature over time. Songwriting comes easily for me.
Working as a computer programmer now. Would quit and go touring if things go well. I'm interested in the experimental aspects of music-- when new sound is born. Things that makes you wonder what you just heard and why it sounded familiar. Also, contrasting this with unpopular older styles to make confusing, at first, statements. Tie that in with an honest overarching goal of trying to let people know how I feel.
My style (not necessarily yours):
Tainted, pensive/distressed, warm, muted, retro, dark, tranquil, rough, aberrant/strange, audacious/heroic, rhythmically complex. Tech house, trip hop, rock, new wave, doo wop.
NOT my style:
Emo, folk, metal, pop-punk, ska, classic rock, soft rock, traditional blues, traditional anything, cheery, weak, innocent/naive, untroubled, easy-going
