Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement! I truly appreciate it :-)
I love the SC community, because it is a 'community', with the many styles of music and the inspirations and encouragement I find here for all!
After discovering SC and hearing so much talent - I wanted to join in, but so much to learn! I was a classically trained pianist when a youngster (now a tad rusty), who has restarted a musical journey, originally in learning the field of electronic music, and exploring piano improvisations and compositions. However, most of my latest works have been piano-based, and am hoping to once again, learn some more electronic and even combine the two; piano and electronic ... But then again, I keep returning to the piano! hehe :)
- still exploring and not feeling bound by any rules!
BTW: If you want to know a little about any most of my tracks (and the same on other musician's profiles), just click on the title and it will take you directly there. (as many new people don't realise one can do this) - Please note that I also have a 'megs-repost' account - www.soundcloud.com/megs-reposts and will be reposting tracks there (rather than filling up this main account, because there are so many tracks I'd love to repost, so if any of you see some un-posted tracks that were here, they're over at my other account! Love you to follow there too, so I can hear some more of your music :-)
A Mini Biography: Music has been a part of my life since a young child (my whole family is musical, though of different styles, with my step-father's fantastic rock-band and analog synths, bass and acoustic guitar, my mother's gorgeous Irish folk-band, autoharp and dulcimer, my brother's beautiful self-taught guitar, and my Dad's famous banjo playing) :)
At a young age of about 5, I attempted composing my own piano works whilst begging my mother for piano lessons; and after about a year, my wish became reality and I trained for the AMEB (Australian Musical Examination Board) exams. I eventually started performing live, with amateur tours around the country area for a singing group and for theatre groups (though that was a long time ago now!).
But eventually, I headed down a different path in academia, in getting my Bachelors degree, Masters degree and a PhD.
Now I have a chance to find this dream again, slowly but surely, as long as its fun. I also find it very therapeutic, as music can often express so much more than words can. It is a journey where time seems to have no meaning. This is a 'musical diary' of sorts, as I struggle through a difficult time in life health-wise, ... my escape .... music :-)
So, I would love it if you would follow me on this 'journey' because any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
Of course, I am also here as a Fan, and would love to find more people to listen to! There are so many wonderful, talented, and often undiscovered musicians up here, and I cannot get enough of your music! I have very eclectic tastes in music.
My apologies too if there is ever a delay in my replies, as I can't always be here, but will try to get back to you and comments, I appreciate them so much. Hoping to find all my friends, and new ones too! ;-)
... and thank you so much too! SoundClouder Of The Day, 18 May 2O13 - its all thanks to your support and encouragement!
