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.
