I started composing in the beginning of 2008 . . . I composed four songs that year. I'm planning on composing at least twelve songs in 2009.
Not yet, however, I'm planning on making songs with vocals soon and I'll ultimately be performing them live.

I primarily use a computer program called, "Fruity Loops". I also use another program called, "Nero Wave Editor". In addition, I use an instrument called a, "voice transformer" which changes the pitch of my voice and adds effects. I have many other instruments, but haven't used them in a song yet.
I make a new song approximately every month.
