Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I'm a home based artist (unsigned) whose equipment is limited to a good laptop, lots of good software and 2TB worth of loops and samples I've collected over the years. Primarily I am a guitar player, (to check out some of my guitar playing i have an alternate project under the name of "TVcop Blues" - TVcop Blues) so I know my music theory fairly well and I find a good knowledge of timings is important when it comes to electronic music. My main influences are dark, minimal artists with good effects like Pig & Dan, but I also like progressive house (like Perfect Stranger) and progressive psy-trance (like Captain Hook) as I spent 3 months in Goa in 2007. Ultimately I'd love to make a living from making music but my main reason for making this music in the first place is to satisfy my curiosity of what I'm capable of creating. It's a challenge I guess is another reason as well as the satisfaction and happiness that a good track can relay to another listener. If my tunes can paint a picture or give a feeling then it's accomplished something I guess, so I hope that's what they do for you. Enjoy!
