Who here makes music?

Any of you regulars bust any Fruityloops, or AcidPro, Protools? Make music with instruments? Sing? In a band? Have anything up on any share sites?

I know Ckzat does some nice minimal electronica on lastfm.. I do cut and paste ambient and trip hop things.. will post a new link shortly- here!

Anybody?

Re: Who here makes music?

I play bass guitar and was playing in a band for a while but... well, long story... could make a blues song about it

Nothing to share. My bass-solos are not that awesome that I feel like the world would have been waiting for them.

Cool RandRob 'Little Things' free download link

well, here's most of this past year and a half..

http://www.last.fm/music/randomrob/Little+Things

clicking on the play arrows next to the track titles starts a 30 sec preview.. if you want to hear the whole thing, click on the track title itself and you will go to a separate page where you can stream it.

I can't believe more folks here don't noodle w/music

Re: Who here makes music?

I'm a musician. My main instrument is the guitar, but I play bass and a bit of piano. I'm studying jazz at the moment, so I'm mostly immersed in jazz music.

In terms of original music, my influences are mostly progressive and experimental, as well as jazz. Lately, I've gained a taste in ambient electronica, as I like the Krautrock bands, Can, Tangerine Dream who did that stuff as well.

As in my writing and recording, most of it is old and low budget, in other words, literally plugging my guitar lead straight in the back of the computer.

So I noodle a bit.

Re: Who here makes music?

Can't believe I didn't see this post... I'm an opera singer (a tenor). I just got back from my first major leading role. You can find out more at: www.eapenleubner.com. I've got videos and pics there. I've got a fan page too: www.facebook.com/eapenleubner. There are some music files there and more photos from past gigs.

Feel free to "like me".

Thanks for posting the links to your work. I'll check it out when I get home!

Re: Who here makes music?

I'm starting to download your tracks, RandomRob. Got to listen to Shenendoah this morning before work. Very impressive stuff! Glad you posted it!

Penfield is in the "real upstate." It's a suburb of Rochester.

I took the train past Irvington to Cold Springs a couple of years back. It's such a picturesque trip!

Re: Who here makes music?

Thanks! It's really just collage to me, but I'm glad I'm getting more good feedback these days

Your stuff is amazing! Kudos from the New York Times?! That's AWESOME! You should be very proud!
Is opera a family tradition for you?

*btw- I miss that train ride. Croton-Harmon line, then the connecting route that follows the river. Hitchcock used it in North by Northwest. So blissful

Re: Who here makes music?

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. The singing is the main reason that I'm infrequent on this, my only forum. If I disappear for awhile, it is usually because I'm doing a show somewhere.

As for family history, nope... my dad is a German chemist, my mom is an Indian school teacher. I have no idea how I ended up enjoying music this much.

That picture is awesome! I tell you, taking the Metro-North is a totally underrated experience. I didn't realize that it was featured in North by Northwest. That was the film that made me fall in love with train travel. It was just so civilized, you know?

Re: Who here makes music?

new track by me (been awhile!), called 'Dervish'.. I'm particularly proud of the last 3 minutes, whirling sunny shattering techno bliss.

Re: Who here makes music?

I make music too, and I never come up with a good description for it, expirimental hiphop with lots of UK influences is the best I can think of right now.

Like your tunes Rob, good work!
