I am Bill Cowart. I have been making music most of my life. I am a piano/keyboardist really. I dabble in guitar & am just starting to fiddle w/ dubstep. Astronomical Sixtynine (A69) is my lifelong creation. until now all music I've used has been my own. My music can be heard on Youtube...or a scratch on the surface of it. I'm not famous, I make music, not money.
Instruments I play
piano, keyboard, guitar, drums, what evz... the catch is I do not read music, nor do I ever wish to learn. I only see that as a handicap... not a help. Music is in you, not written on paper, that's not even possible.
Software I Use
My laptop & 100% free mixing software ... as for the exact kind I plead the 5th.
Hardware I Use
My old stuff was Korg, Yamaha, a Radio Shack generic & brandless Midi, now my trusty Toshiba...
Listening To Right Now
I'm really stuck on Skrillex's new album Recess, Nine Inch Nails new album Hesitation Marks is to die for, Skinny Puppy's Weapon is a bold statement and great sound...I'm kinda stuck on my own stuff at the moment too. A69's ComputeRage is a solid album. I'm proud of the work I did.
10 Favourite Albums
Anything by Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy's Greater wrong of the right... also the album mythmaker, I'm stuck on bangarang by skrillex right now ... anything Metallica, Korn, this is impossible to answer. ComputeRage by me, Astronomical Sixtynine.
