heard b0unc3 and paragonx9, and said "wow I wanna make music like them"
I remember the day now.
hell I'm going back even farther in my memories now.
I started music making even before I discovered b0unc3 and paragon.
it was a ride home from school, when I thought of some lyrics over the song "Godzilla" by blue oyster cult. I remade it "todzilla". If you guys want it ill upload it :P
granted I had no idea about music production at all. all I had was a mic, a cassette recorder and windows recorder.
I recorded the vocals with the mic. then recorded me singing guitar noises while the computer was playing, and recorded this onto the tape recorder. then repeated into the computer again.
I made about 30 songs like this. then a buddy of mine said "hey check otu fl. the rest is history. it was after i found fl that i found new grounds. and paragonx9 and b0unc3. then histroy was set in motion.
i messaged b0unc3, and we became pretty good buddies, he sort of mentored me int he real early stages of my production. talking to him I started to realize it might be possible for me to amke a living off of my music! our contact fell off after a while though.
i continued making songs in fl for several months. this is about 2 years after the first "todzilla"
then I made friends with T7, who used cubase. eventually i got it.
granted i still was a music noob after 2 years. I just made songs randomly, with no form. trying to make trance with b0unc3 was the closest thing to form i did, but those songs blew ass.
then I found renwerx and their game "ascension". I said "alright, let's do this. I started producing tracks for them knowing if i made. I've since produced around 50 songs for the soundtarck, but this is another story entirely.
around a year ago I began to break away from ascension and move back to trance, electronica for listening, not playing. 50 songs doing this,a nd now I'm where im at.
i still have a lot of room for improvement. but I am damned glad not only to be where i am right now, but to have taken the journey i did. hell it's my life story! when I'm famous I'll be telling this shit :D
The more and more songs I amke, the better my production skills become, and I'm 100% confident I'll be able to be famous and make a living one day. I've never lost any skill, only gained.
I've taken the long hard road I think, but it's taught me persistence! some musicians might make music for enjoying the process, and some might become incredibly good after 6 months (yeah you :P)
Thats it, my story about my music and how i started
