Raised with classical music I started playing the violin at 6 years old. Two years later I started playing the piano too. However, after 8 years I had the stupid idea that playing classical music was not so cool Then I quit...
At the age of 18 I bought my first (and last) synthesizer, a Roland D5. Together with a small drum computer (Dr rythm by Boss) and a sequenser (Alesis MMT8) I tried my first steps in electronic music. But again, after only 3 years, I got tired of it all and quit again...
Only to have the fire relighted in 2011 when a new colleague introduced me to softsynths and DAWs. Since then I am addicted and this time it feels like it's here to stay :-).
Keys, violin and a bit of classical guitar. Just started taking saxophone lessons.
Cubase 7.5 and a lot of synths and plugins.
Yamaha KX-8 USB midi keyboard. ANd that's basically it (well, apoart from my dearest Sony Vaio).
A lot of albums released by Compost.
Jazzanova - The Remixes 1997-2000
Miles Davis - Kind of blue
Erykah Badu - Worldwide Underground
I have been influenced by many, many musical styles: from classical to symphonic rock, from the early 80's dance tunes to jazz and from soul to house.
So far, my tracks are in the urban lounge area with some jazzy influences.
I try to waste as little energy as humanly possible.
