I'm a vocalist and keyboardist/pianist doing computer arrangement/production w/ Ableton Live and a slew of iOS apps. 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.
I'm a computer programmer at work on my music production app for iOS. Ready to quit this and go touring at any point. 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. Contrasting what's happening on the edge of right now (ultra-modern/trendy) with unpopular older styles to pose initially confusing statements. Tie that in with an overarching goal of trying to express a set of emotions that I feel are important for our society to be aware of in order to maintain a global understanding of what's happening inside of people in this world today.
My style (not necessarily yours):
Tainted, discordant, dark, tranquil, warm, soothing, muted, pensive/distressed, aggressive, aberrant/strange, audacious/heroic, rhythmically complex. Tech house, trip-hop, electroclash, post-punk, new wave, doo-wop.
Incompatible with my style:
Emo, folk, metal, pop-punk, ska, classic rock, soft rock, traditional blues, traditional anything, cheery, weak/whiny, innocent/naive, untroubled, easy-going
