Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Just some guy that enjoys the more tasteful end of electronic music (doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good Dance track!).
I've been discovering what direction I want my music to head in, and I think I finally have something semi-original, that I want to develop into a project or album.
A bit about me:
I study film at Missouri State University in Springfield, Mo. I'm about to turn 22. I'm learning that my passion in the film industry lies in recording or mixing audio on and for productions.
