Hi, my name is Silas :)
I'm a 15 year old boy that lives in Washington, USA.
One of my favorite things to do is play the piano. I play it all the time, and go into withdrawal if I don't. I love inspiring people with my music.
I use SoundCloud to post my ideas and musical thoughts that pop into my head, as well as some music I've taken time to compose and put into a CD. A lot of times I end up disliking my song after listening to it for a little while, which makes me more determined to make the next one better. Most of my music is completely improvised or made up on the spot. I also love to learn other songs by listening to them, like my recordings: Glad You Came, Fireflies, Somebody That I Used To Know, Paradise, Hall of Fame, and all other songs you might recognise from elsewhere. I didn't use any music for any of those songs, and really, I'm not too good at reading music so it wouldn't have helped! My "studio" consists of a Yahama DGX-505 digital piano, two matched MXL mics, a Blue Spark mic, a Tascam USB Audio Interface, Bose Companion speakers, a variety of cables and headphones and various instruments, and Propellerhead Reason on a Mac (thanks to my very supportive parents, family, and friends :)
Among the other things I enjoy are drawing, soccer, photography, videography, x-country, website design, and I know some guitar too :)
