I like messing around making sounds. I really like that a new sound can be synthesised or designed and despite having never being heard before can immediately evoke a cognitive or emotional response in the listener. Why is this?
Also sometimes I try to compose music but I'm not so good at that :)
Ableton Live, Image-Line VSTs
Couple of MIDI keyboards, nothing special yet.
Usually the same stuff as listed in favourite artists/influences. I have a difficult time branching out and discovering new music.
Barry Lynn - Balancing Lakes
AFX/Aphex Twin - Analord [series]
Aphex Twin; Boxcutter/Barry Lynn; Boys Noize; Delia Derbyshire; Drumcorps; The Flashbulb; Hideki Naganuma; Savant; Skrillex; Space Dimension Controller; Squarepusher; Throwing Snow; Venetian Snares;
Try to take inspiration from the aforelisted, but with a uniquely experimental (I hope) twist.
Don't do much.
Try to learn new nerdy things if I have the energy.
