About Me

Names Gareth, I'm currently studying an undergraduate BSc degree in Music Technology at The University of Glamorgan ATRiuM which is in Cardiff, Wales.
I'm a self taught guitar player, been playing for around 9 or 10 years.
Starting out as a professional engineer and producer with my the help my university work.
Basically you find on here below the date of September 2011 is probably quite shit because i never had any heart to spend more than 20 minutes on a piece let alone mix it properly.
On the base of my skills and knowledge I would say i'm leaning towards being a Producer, Engineer, Musician, Composer (not in any particular order) in other words a Music Technologist... I'm also starting to do some Binaural sound fx projects.

In Short i'm a young up and coming Music Technologist who will eventually earn a living doing this stuff somehow.

My Music Sounds Like

Cheap and nasty Production work :(

Recently upgraded from Pro Tools 9 to Pro Tools 10 for free! (student perks of course) PT9 was shockingly shit, and was as compatible as a fish in a frying pan!

In My Other Life I ...

As a student I've learn't to drink most alcoholic beverages safely While Supervised ;)

Gym occasionaly, Run most times because its cheaper and when i can actually get the time to do so. Enjoys my PS3 with its decent size 500Gb HDD, i installed that baby myself! (Nerd Alert)
Battlefield 3 is probably my favourite game right now expecially with back to karkland :)

Supports Wales in just about anything, including rugby and football because I'm Welsh obviously...!

I plan on upgrading to a 27 inch Imac when they have USB 3.0 & Bluray drives..
