About

I'm a student, from Tynemouth in the north east of England but I go to Uni in Bath. I'm a brony, hence much of my music is MLP related. I play keyboards (synth, piano and keytar,) electric violin and electric double bass.

Music-wise, most of my music is classical, recorded live (I've yet to learn/be bothered to learn how to use midi) though I'm very open to a range of genres.

Dark Symphony Francis Thompson, Bath, Britain (UK)

    @ISMBOFepicly: Yeah, sure! I'd be happy to contribute! For my own Balloon Party track, I'm gonna do trance metal (I know, something other than classical for once, what the fu-)

    @٧Hail٧Seitan٧: Hahaha it was a completely rogue improvisation, by the time the sync listen was getting near I figured I might as well make something but this is all I really had time for.

    o_O Whenever you make something like this I always become aware of the fact you could very easily do what I do musical-style-wise, but do it FAR better. I'm seriously jelly of your piano skills.

    @polaris118: Yeah, I suck at ending songs XD I'm working on it though. "For Skeprise" actually has a proper ending (I know! Shocking!)

    I have a slight problem in that I improvise most of my music, so endings can suffer as a result. But with a little planning I'm hoping I can improve my music a lot.

    Oh, and speaking of which, thank you for creating the group. Without it, I never would have gotten into recording my stuff, or push
