I have a thrive to create. When I was quite young I used to fill pages and pages of notepad paper with random and often nonsensical stories. I like writing, I like reading, I like drawing and I like composing and playing, and listening to music. I like to immerse myself with imaginative and creative thoughts, whether they be my own or someone elses, it doesn't matter. When I was 10 I got a discman. I mostly bought pop singles I heard on the radio. The songs I now come to loathe. But there were a few gems in there. The first album I bought was Daft Punk's "Discovery" album, the year it came out. In that same year I started learning piano and guitar, because the opportunity came up, and I was interested. I picked them up pretty well, and a couple of years later I was in high school, and I started learning classical theory. I started listening to Blink-182, and I became a fan of pop-punk and punk rock. Although now I know that Blink-182 lack the hard edge and attitude of typical Punk music, I'd like to think that if I started a band, I'd write and perform my own Punk type songs. I still listen to a lot of that punk rock type music, Sum 41, Rise Against, but I guess it's in my creative nature to never stay put to one thing for too long. Although I still like a lot of music I bought from a couple of years back, I'm always discovering new bands, falling in love with interesting new styles, listening to CDs and hating them at first, but giving them a second chance and letting them grow on me. As a composer, I started playing around with some lyrical content, writing my own tunes, playing then on my acoustic guitar, simple chords, little development, but on the whole, not bad. I came across FL6 and I tried a few of my songs for piano and drums and a couple of synths, but I quickly changed from that, doing stuff straight onto the computer. I came to Newgrounds making some pretty weak loops for my brother's flash games. I learned a lot here, the styles, the capabilities of FL, and since then, I've begun to push my skills to the limit to learn more. I'm always immersing myself in music, on a quest to learn more. It's ironic that the first album I really experienced was called Discovery, because that's exactly what my music has been, and continues to be.
