Aaand the 5 Days of Drum 'n Bass comes to an end. I'd say it was a pretty cool thing to do. I had fun, and i got a few good reviews. We came to a total of 333 views (and counting) with Sancti getting the most views. Thank you, guys! (and girls.) You all sent me some questions as well. I'll answer them, but i won't enter names. Let's just call them Anonymous, shall we?
Question 1: When did you decide to make music?
Well, i've always had a feel for music. It holds a special place in my heart and it always will. I don't plan on making it my job though. I like doing what i am right now, but school is a must for me. I don't plan on making my living with music, as much as i enjoy it.
Question 2: What is the biggest suprise to you so far?
The fact that one of my best songs is The City's March. The City's March is a minimalistist-like song. It's a simple drum loop, a bass, and a keyboard synth in the background. If you add the low background noise of the city, that's simply what you have. When you put it in perspective it's not alot yet... it's still my most popular song and it's already used in a game called #Strys available for free on iTunes. :D (Shameless advertising)
Question 3: Who is your idol / example?
For each genre i have a different example, actually. For most of the techno/trance/video game music i like to look up to Waterflame because, so far, i have liked almost every piece he's made. As for the hard rock / metal genre, i like to listen to Bury Tomorrow and Killswitch Engage for possible inspiration. I've always been a fan of Killswitch Engage, and i recently discovered Bury Tomorrow. They have certain tecniques i admire. Their (now former) guitarist Mehdi Vismara had a few ways of making sounds with a guitar that harshly reminded me of techno/trance. Awesome songs. For my Drum and Bass style tracks i like to find inspiration in the music of Feint and basicly whatever the label 'Monstercat' releases. They're awesome. I might send one of my best tracks to them. House is mostly inspired by Mirrored Theory. Awesome artist. Look 'm up.
Question 4: Will you still make an album?
I'd love to answer this with a 'yes', but i can't. I've got no idea what i'll do in the future. Basicly, i try to release a song every week. One every week, however, sometimes it's hard to even come around to that. But of course, i dont exactly HAVE to, 'cus it's all in fun. This is just a hobby of mine. But... to promise my fans and/or listeners an album might be a few steps too far. MAYBE! Maybe i'll do an EP. 4 or 5 songs. But 10 to 13 is a bit much, i'd say. But i'll see what i can do. No promises. :)
