Oh man, I have been doing this type of music for awhile now, but only recently under the assumed name Pure Ambient Drone. I started around 2002. A friend of mine brought over a keyboard and I got to play with it for awhile and just fell in love.
It wasn't long before I had my own keyboard and was writing tunes. At first ambient soundscapes were not my focus. One day though I put one together while playing around with some cool sounds and POW I noticed I had a knack for it!
I actually now own the keyboard my friend brought over that day and it is very special to me because he committed suicide and I have it to remember by.
I can't even imagine playing my genre of music live unless it was at a library or a mattress store ha ha! Ok, maybe a stress clinic LOL.
Oh man! REALLY? Everyone and everything! I live in Missouri and we have some of the most beautiful places to visit out here. I was raised in a military family and have been to a lot of places all around the world. I have listened to so many types of music from Germany to Italy to the USA. Movies are a huge influence for me. I love science fiction films. They have a huge impact on my music.
I like MOBY, Enya, Enigma but also like Rock music and so classic country. Bluegrass is always good stuff, ya bluegrass I said. It all contributes. I think what really sticks in my head are the old German tunes my mother would play when I was a kid. They had some really cool riffs.
Oh you had to ask! :) I have a select group of analog and digital equipment that I use. My secret weapon is the Yamaha AN1x. Anyone who has ever played one of these will know why! Also my Yamaha SY22, Moby used one on some of his albums. I also have an Roland MC-303 and the Roland F06. I don't use a lot of software synthesizers because of two main reasons. First, I think they sound too think and cold. Second, there is no character to them, they just are. I like the feeling of analog. I love used things that someone use to own and played on.
People ask me if I make music for money. NO. I do NOT. BUT! I would love the financial support of my fans so that I can continue making the music they love. Music does take money to produce and it does take time away from an artist's life. Time they could be spending making a living. If you listen to and enjoy music, I would ask you to please support the artist who made it. Because with out paying fans, the music will go away simply because artist need to pay the bills.
