I appear on Broadjam not as a career artist but as an amateur, mainly self taught musician, whose roots can be traced back to a most humble habit of tinkling on the piano. While sticking to tinkling but kicking it up a notch with midi sequencing and development of homemade sound architectures, I am most hopeful that other musicians from all walks of life are willing to hash out some constructive criticism of my works that will help me to evolve a more professional lacquer in my works. And while that is, I'm sure, too much to ask of most folks, I hope a few will indulge me. Further and more useful information can be found in my equally brief bio, which if you're bored I highly recommend reading. Warmest regards.
As an amateur, mostly self-taught musician, my roots find themselves deeply imbedded in the unremarkable, decades past highschool marching band career. While I always enjoyed tinkling the piano keys at home with no regard whatsoever for music theory, a highly unlikely childhood hero of mine, whom I credit with introducing me to midi applications on a Commodore Amiga, released me quite unbridled into the world of electronic ambience. Without having touched an instrument since my college years, my fingers are still working tirelessly, impressing all the usual suspects (Mom and Dad, Sis and my Gal Kim). You see, with exception to my introduction to the public decades ago (while still at an impressionable age) on a local NPR afilliate in which an hour of my compositions were released onto the airwaves, my works have sat collecting dust (and demagnetizing) for the past 15 or so years. And so, approaching my middle years, I've restarted my efforts at composition, and would like to reintroduce the hobby into my lifestyle as a healthy diversion from the droll lifestyle I happen to live (and so too do some of you live equally droll lifestyles). Without being too wordy and boring, I've relaunched my amateur efforts, floppy disks, 17 year old PowerMac and 20 year old sound module and all into the ether of internet broadcast, for better or for worse. With my antiquated electronics and computing equipment, I'm fighting against time to brush up my musical composition skills, but I can't do it without the help of folks out there on Broadjam willing to risk their honest opinions in helping me to polish my work. So have a listen at your leisure (if leisure happens to exist) and see if you don't mind recommending some improvements that might help me develop as an artist. I'm indebted to anyone who can help me out here, and who can recommend an upgrade to my quickly deteriorating floppy disks, well decorated sound modules and struggling midi sequencer. Best wishes to all.
