Welcome dear visitor. My name is Bertold Kiss. Today, as of writing this I am almost 39 years old, living in Hungary, Budapest. I've been involved with music since my early childhood. I learned sol-fa and piano in a countryside school in Hungary for some years. I remember still well on the happy hours with sol-fa lessions all about Hungarian folk songs with our teacher "Magdi néni", a very friendly and professional lady who taught me as a grammar school pupil the very basics of the art of music in a Hungarian (Kodály) way. In my grammar school years I regularly sang in the local grammar school choir and enjoyed it extremely, especially part-singing. I really loved part-singing with at leaast three or four voice parts and many respects to our teacher who was able to achieve this with grammar school pupils. I remember well on appearances in the local cultural centre, on the spot lights and reflectors, on the audience of my village people listening to us and cheering...
This is all gone after my grammar school years and I started to deal with music again years after as I studied in a college for electrical engineering. Once I was asked to write some fun "dramatic" play for my study group, to be performed at the regular annual college fun days. My roommate had a Gravis Ultrasound card and I composed some simple accompaining music dub with a tracker. Those times I also wrote song lyrics later on winning a slightly unknown and insignificant national competition for song lyrics writers, and I bought a Soundblaster Live card and played with for fun.
After 11 years of inactivity in this field, I'd like to experment again with music for my fun and other's fun, that's why I joined to soundcloud. To find friends of music, no matter where you are on the globe.
