This music is produced by one person on a laptop with the modern tools of music production. Its music that tends toward the quiet end of electronica: atmosphere with beats.
It's a bit unique in its emphasis on chordal progression and pad movement, often entirely lacking any lead line. In the more successful tunes a melody is implied more than defined.
All kidding aside, I read an article in the NY Times that it was possible to stave off dementia, by exercising the brain by learning a language or a musical instrument. Having many years of playing and listening to music and employed in software development, I took the consolidating step of subjecting myself to the continuous learning of the many skills involved in home music production.
This is a basement composition enterprise.
most similar to Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Prefuse 73
influenced by a great many from Motown, British Invasion, psychedelic rock, folk rock, alt rock, punk rock and the synthesizer truly coming into its own
I use an Edirol midi controller on a laptop computer packed with a wide assortment of synth and effect software. I have my favorites, like rhino and Absynth, but that may not really mean much to the wider world. For a host and hosting I use Cakewalk products, FLStudio and energyXT.
thanks for listening
