Music at its purest level is just another form of human expression. Architecture, conversations, paintings, claymations -- these ideas were in someone's head once. This notion is what draws me to perform. I feel we learn and master instruments ultimately, to take whatever sounds are echoing around in our heads all day, and make them into tangible melodies and songs for other people to enjoy.
Electronic music provides not only an easy way for me to translate the music in my head into a real thing, but also a platform of control that does not exist in traditional jamming and music making. (That's not to say that is entirely a good thing either because the collective interaction of live music is unmatched and one of the most beautiful things I can think of, but that topic is for another "about me" section lost in the expanses of teh intrawebz). Honestly, I just really enjoy the process of making electronic music; playing with Max/MSP and Ableton is fun as heck. Then to have a product afterwards where I can say, "Hey look I've finished something!" That's really amazing.
The real humdinger is playing your music live. Whoa. Like whoaaaaaaaa. To put all this time and effort into creating something is rewarding on its own, but then to see people dancing out of enjoyment because of the music... Well I was sold. I love it. I love people. I love music. Let's have fun.
