ABOUT

As a 28-year-old musician-nerd-gamer, I've come to accept that I have a fairly eclectic taste. I have a deep and natural attraction to metal, megaman, EDM, philosophy, prog, comics, and any other music that sounds powerful and creepy. Even if I focused on strictly one of these topics, I would be unable to keep the others from mixing in, be it subtly or brutally. I now want to actively participate in the mixing, and force everything I love together, pushing it out on the other side as music.

I'm most comfortable playing slap bass, but want to make as many sounds as I can think of. I'm not interested in picking a genre first and staying within those walls. I want to start playing what sounds good, and let the music decide what it will be in the end. Mix together elements from any genre you'd like, as long as it sounds good, and you'll be left with an honest, maybe even original, song. I want to make music that I've never heard before.

Basically I want to write music first, and decide what it sounds like afterwards, instead of the other way around. You wanna help?
