Sonic the Hedgehog music influenced me first, I used to record all the sounds on my YakBak and warp them over and over again.Then came years and years of piano lessons.I play most of my stuff by ear and don't read music as much as I used to, but I do have a background in classical piano, and I love to play Chopin Waltzes, Mazurkas, and Preludes.I also love to sing and play along to Tori Amos and Amy Winehouse (RIP).Along with anything else that has influenced me, especially anything electronic, it all makes its way into my music.I also love to design and record sounds with my Zoom Handy Recorder.Whether I'm walking through the streets of Brooklyn recording bustling subway stations, watching Jet Li movies with bad English dubbed in, listening to bird noises early in the morning in downtown Orlando, or doing anything else that sparks a creative effort in order to blend sounds together into cohesive ideas, I will incorporate it into a set or make a track out of it.Most of my tracks have been created using Reason 3.0-5.0, although I have worked with countless other programs in the past, and I also use Mixmeister to blend and create sets. In the past I have also done several tracks using Ableton and Cubase."Ya Heard" was done exclusively on Ableton, with my voice all dubbed in and tweaked to a tea, asking you throughout the whole track if you had been listening."Open Your Eyes" was a demo I made of myself singing at York Recording Studio (YRS MIDI) where I completed a music production degree interning with owner George York and learned the ropes of Cubase. As of right now I don't have a lot of experience DJing on decks, as I have, up to this current point, been mostly a producer and composer via my laptop and MIDI controller, but I am willing to learn new ways to polish my craft the best way I know how, and am always down to play live or do something outside the box.If you would like to collaborate or remix any of my work drop me a line.RSN files are my best friend.I have a lot of work to do.See ya ;)
*I just completed a small study on a child that has CHARGE syndrome, a form of autism that causes many of those diagnosed to be born deaf, amongst several other abnormalities usually seen.I was a caregiver for Max Carrolle at a convention for CHARGE. He is deaf in his left ear, but has 25% hearing in his right ear.I let him play on my keyboard while placing an earbud in his right ear, and it seemed to provide him a lot of comfort.I will be posting some of his compositions very soon.Everyone has the capacity to be involved in music therapy at some level, through what they find therapeutic for themselves as well as providing it for others, and it will continue to be a part of what I do for as long as I live. The sense of peace one can receive through the ability to hear is a God-given gift we have to keep nurturing and learn about, for I believe it brings a self-discovery about our selves and the rest of the human race that signals out some of the most effervescent scales of emotion.*

&ME - Blitz
this is the sound of the underground...
I don't know whether I liked the soundtrack better, or Anna Kendrick's sexy face.
beatport shopping cart....done.
tried to email your manager, if I but the beatport release AIFF/WAV, or Amazon, lol can I use it as the start of my next DJ Set. This track has gotten through some really rough times and uplifted, though I haven't heard it in a few years, until now. Regards ;)
