Born to? That's all I got. It's the only thing I've ever done, ever. I guess I'm cursed, eh?

I just wanted to have fun. I remember when I was deciding what instrument I was gonna beg my parents for I thought to myself "do I want to look cool with a guitar, or do I want to have fun with a drum kit?"

Bass was also in mind and still is :P

Second that. I'll even add, it's the only thing I've ever been good at. It's a compulsion, a sickness, a need. I have to make music.

I got FL by putting "Music Creating Program" into Kazaa a long time ago (FL 3 to be exact) and I started making really gay and stupid drum beats. Eventually I started putting little lame non-musical instruments in there like guitars and synths and whatnot, and my friend showed me a trance song.

I recognized a bunch of the sounds from sounds I found/made in FL, tried my hand at it, and it turned out really well. The rest is history.

I heard kingbastard, some one told me about FL studio got number 5 and worked with it all day and night because I had NO life. I was confused because i grew up listening to a lot of hip hop so i wanted to only make that for some reason, i was a stupid child.

I still consider everything I create hip hop...

I've always had a need to create. Before music i really enjoyed drawing (still do) but i've always really had a passion for music and always wished i could play instruments, or wished my mother would've gotten me into piano lessons or something when i was a kid. A went to a summer college thing in Minneapolis for video game design at 'MCAD' and the roomate for the two weeks i was up there used FL studio and had been for a while, and i got the downloads from him and tried my hand at it. I played around with it for a few months but figured there was too much to learn and stopped for about two years. My computer dies. I finally get a new one after the two years...i decided to try at FL studio again. Really try. I always had fun making the simple crap i used to and i always wanted to make sounds like what i listened to. So i just kept on making tracks. Now i've been using it for about 5 years. Its limitless and i've never had stale feelings when i start making music. It has always been fresh, and i've always had something creative to apply myself to. Thats why i do it. I find such a great joy in doing it. Its always rewarding!

I just do it because I want to be famous like ParagonX9/Bounc3/envy/Cornandbeans/dimra in47 and get used in a million flash submissions get worshipped and recieve a ton of PMs, and reviews and comments that I don't even bother responding to because it makes me look important....

I choose choice A. because making music is enjoyable. It's not a job. Music serves me, not the other way around. I wouldnt have it any other way. of course, i wont lie i recieve inspiration from popularity and recognition, but it isnt my main incentive to make tracks. i'm happy for any people that like my creations along the way even if its just my mom.

My parents tell me that when i was a small child, i heard music in my head.

I started writing 2 years ago about because i was forced to change my elective, so i picked some musical class on a whim.

I've got a good friend who was making music for his vioce acting. I listenned to his tracks and desided to make something worthy too.
Actually I think I started writing music when I was learning how to play piano, a pity I can't remember any melodies from that time.

I fucking lol'd.

As for me, I could write a story, but you won't want to read it. So I'll keep it short(ish).

I was always the kid that wanted to be different, so I was listening to metal, eventually I got hooked and just sitting there listening to it got my adrenaline going. After that I heard GoreBastard used FL (from ArthurGhostly - not the best source for info, mind). So I googled it, downloaded the trial, got making some crappy tunes. I started with ambient, I worked into other genres. I'm now on Happy Hardcore type-ish stuff.

The reason why I make it?
It gives me a buzz, a high, it controls my emotions, how I feel, regardless of whatever else. I don't care if no one ever hears my tunes, I make it for me.

I make music as a way of letting out all the emotion building up inside me. Otherwise I'll EXPLODE! D:

i decided I wanted to start making music after I heard winterbliss by cycerin. As soon as I heard that song something just clicked and I realized that I should be making music as well

best decision I've ever made


A heavy bassline is my kind of silence.

Enjoy progressive house? Then listen to my song.

Hmm... I started making music so that I would have a talent that I couldn't get injured for.

Always good to have one of those right?

Well I grew up with music in my life all around. My father played the guitar and has been a in a few bands I've learned a instrument or two to an extent by ear but never kept a real interest in them. Got a little older and got into a band myself. Loved it so much and kinda missed that feeling after the group disbanned and everyone else went on their own merry way. Long story short. Grew up around music and still love it to this day.

emotion is music.

I enjoy it and it is a passion for me..

It also seems to run in my family... My pops plays the Guitar and sings, my Gramps played just about anything, my great great grandma played the flute.

I play the Clarinet, Sax, Bass Clarinet, Keyboard and my Computer of course. =D

I started making music when I was five...I guess it was that special feeling I got when I harmonized certain notes. I got these butterflies in my stomach when I wrote my first peice when I was just a little lad.

I guess I'm just addicted to that feeling and I'm pushing that feeling to the limits by creating these weird songs...

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.
