SEEKINGVocalist, Vocalist - Bass, Vocalist - Baritone, Vocalist - Tenor, Vocalist - Soprano, Violin, Piano, Vocalist - Alto, Electronic Music.
29 years old, I played guitar, drums, and sang/screamed in metal and punk bands for 15 or so years before switching to electronic production. Looking for other electronic producers to collaborate with, as well as vocalists (female, male, rappers, singers, whatever works) to feature on tracks. I'm in grad school so free time is limited, but I'm good at procrastinating on work (which means making time for music!)
Location isn't important to me, as long as you have your own equipment (i.e. a mic and a way to record, if you're a vocalist) -- we can just exchange stems and audio if you're not nearby.

Support Purity Ring, and of course check out the original track at https://soundcloud.com/purity-ring/belispeak -Lyrics- Grandma, my sleep is narrow Bid you bring me some strong drink Strain out the pulps and set them close outside For when my belly, for when my little belly speaks Grandma, there's air beneath my bed And it whispers, and it whispers when I rest Bid hem skirts in salt and vinegar, vinegar And hover closely, oh, hover closely under head Grandma, the water is rising My boundless hair has gotten green I'll be your swimming forest island Bid you walk safely, safely over me [The water is rising, my little legs are getting weak The water is rising... Oh, hover closely underhead!] Grandma, the water is rising My boundless hair has gotten green I'll be your swimming forest island Bid you walk safely, safely over me Grandma, my sleep is narrow Bid you bring me some strong drink Strain out the pulps and set them close outside For when my belly, for when my little belly speaks [I'll be your swimming forest island] Grandma, my hands have wandered And my legs, my little legs are getting weak Bid lend me your wispy frame And guard my powers, guard my precious powers in its cage Grandma, I've been unruly In my dreams and with my speech Drill little holes into my eyelids That I might see you, that I might see you when I sleep [I'll be your swimming forest island] Grandma, the water is rising By now this hair has gotten green I'll be your swimming forest island Bid you walk safely, safely over me Grandma, my sleep is narrow Bid you bring me some strong drink Strain out the pulps and set them close outside For when my belly, for when my little belly speaks Grandma, the water is rising By now this hair has gotten green I'll be your swimming forest island Bid you walk safely, safely over me

Cold Weather (ft. HaiK)Support HaiK, whose track "Cold Weather" (https://soundcloud.com/haik81/cold-weather) was the inspiration for this. Vocals, composition, engineering, mixing - Avast! (W. MacTurk) Composition, feedback - HaiK Lyrics: And soon we'll be together, and it'll all be ours Because the ties I severed never left a scar. And your body quivers, but we don't make a sound Because your heart beats quicker when I come around. And when your friends have left you And you feel so alone I will stand by you in this cold weather [We don't make a sound in this cold weather. When I come around, your body quivers] I was standing all alone in this snow- swept starlight Hoping time would bring you home, even from such great heights. My eyes were frozen tight when you finally found me again I felt your bright green eyes shine as you warmed my cold skin And when your friends have left you, and you feel so alone And when your body gives out, I will carry you back home I will carry you back home in this cold weather [Cause your heart beats quicker in this cold weather, as you warm my cold skin. Cause your heart beats quicker in this snow- swept starlight. I felt your bright green eyes shine, even from such great heights. ]
