Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Michael "Furious" Roellinghoff is a part-time producer and guitarist and occasionally a songwriter of some sort currently living and working in the deep south of Japan.
He is an aspiring tragically-over-looked-genius-of-his-generation, but is willing to settle.
Main tools of the trade for electronic music are:
Software such as "Propellerheads Reason", "FL Studio" and occasionally even "Cubase", and "Sony Soundforge" for editing.
Hardware [toys] such as "Korg Electribe SX", a nondescript "Edirol" keyboard, and a "Korg Kaoss Pad", along with a standard "Shure" mic and "Boss Micro BR".
And for rock n' roll, this Michael guy uses a "La Patrie Concert Series" nylon guitar, a "Takamine PT 106" acoustic steel, a "Godin SD 22" electric guitar and a "Godin Freeway 5" electric bass.
Michael is in no way professional: no marketing department wrote this up-- he is awkwardly writing in 3rd person as we speak.
But, if you are interested in signing him or hiring him or buying or leasing some music, or sending death threats or love letters, please drop him a line at roellimr (blah blah blah) gmail (dot) com.
