Hey guys! I thought I'd bring a little conversation about music.

As everybody knows, most people in the audio portal/forum have some form of interest in music! That being said, there are many reasons one might be drawn to music, personally for me I found music production to be the greatest of all great escapes when I was a little kid growing up in the country. Nobody could make sense out of my strong interest in electronic music; it didn't stop me though from abandoning all but my family, hopes, beliefs, as well as dreams to pursue the avenue of actually living off of music. I was an 8 year old kid in boyscouts, cleaning the highway and there it was.... the CD that started it all....
It didn't take drugs, nor any knowlege of the [rave] culture! All it took was that SOUND.

I don't read a lot of biographies, but one artist whom I have read about; his name is Ghastly. You may have heard of him on the main stream; he too lived in a small country town in Arizona, his success only came after he failed once, realized he partied too much, tried again and climbed the latter, what resilience!

Who inspires you? Why do you make music? Do you care about recognition or just do it for the enjoyment?

Dillon Francis has always been a huge inspiration for me, I've been followin him since "IDGAFOS".
Even if I've never tried to make music similar to his, I've always admired his achievements, his character and his music.

I make music because I just like creating things, I've tried making art and even creating games, but music was the easiest for me to pick up, and I stuck with it.

I do care about recognition to some extent but I don't make music just to get famous.
When I started making music I always dreamt of making it and getting big, but now I'm ok with just some people enjoying my music aslong as It makes them feel better :)

Thanks, dude!
@EDM364, @Bertn1991 and @Hikari influence me for the most part. Some comes from @Ritz190.

It started off with Enya and Akiko Shikata, but right now I have also taken inspiration from Little Feet and The Kinks when it comes to performing live. However, when I drum, I don't know if any particular person inspires me... Maybe there is, but I don't see the influence.

I play and compose music for the joy of it, but I also yearn for recognition. For me, it is a symbol. Those of you who know me know that I was abused growing up, and music was one of the excuses behind it. People around me wanted to withhold any recognition from me because of my ethnicity, or because they felt they could control what path I would take as an adult. Having recognition for my music gets rid of at least some of the old demons I've had to face.

This reply seriously caught my attention. First off I'd love to congratulate you on being a rather well known artist; there is no divide here and credit goes where it's due. You make good music man. I too have used music as a means to escape reality. If you're interested in continuing this conversation shoot me a PM. Take care.

Thanks so much! You're a machine at producing tracks and I really like your hybrid stuff. :)
Honored to be part of your list!

Far Too Loud, PrototypeRaptor, Teminite... hmm. They all inspire me to get better if anything. I'd love to make tracks in their styles, but damn if it isn't complex as hell.

Going to list off a bunch of artists who have *probably* influenced me in some way... a few probably won't show well in my music because I haven't finished a lot of pieces haha.
@Geoplex @Noisysundae @Lockyn @DetiousMusic @AeroMusic @Xtrullor @Jumper @Dylnmatrix @IonicForce @AeronMusic @uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh edit forgot @viewtifulday and probably also @mrfaller
Can't think of any more that are on Newgrounds, but on other platforms, I'm pretty inspired by Flite, Mewnlight Rose, Jusplay, and probably a bunch more artists which I really can't think of right now.

My biggest inspiration ever is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon's soundtracks. Ryoma Nakamura, Keisuke Ito and Yasuhiro Kawagoe did the Gates soundtrack, and Noriko Murakami did Super with the latter two. Also, Arata Iiyoshi deserves a mention for Explorers, even if I didn't 100% love that soundtrack.


hey man, you uh you got something on your face right there, lemme just... ok, there we go, MUCH better, you are looking GOOD AS NEW

I have a lot of artists that influence my work, most notably Kurt Harland, Paul Barker, Nivek Ogre, and Trent Reznor. I do music for the hell of it, though I do plan on collecting at least a small amount of cash from it, but it's mainly fun and therapeutic

when I started I always wanted to make music similar to the old zedd style. the first song i heard by him was his scary monsters remix. but that interest in zedd faded and nowadays im mostly into feed me, kill the noize, deadmau5 and noisia

My cousins are honestly the reason I'm so into music. They first got me into playing guitar and it's been fun ever since. It's a great form of expression and has really helped me through some times, too.

@DJ-Delinquent - This guy's beats are the primary reason I started making Hip Hop and his dark style greatly influences my own.

Other than that, DJ Shadow, DJ Food, Mr Scruff, RJD2, J Dilla, DJ Premier, The Chemodan, Poetic Death and Von Poe VII are a few of my other influences that are still making music to vibe to.
