Welcome to Jacki's dance club! Enjoy these tracks!
In 1987 I picked up a keyboard for the first time and haven't been the same since. I took six months worth of piano lessons and then basically taught myself after that. I have subbed for a bar band, played in churches and even played in my old high school once. I dream of doing live piano gigs, just background music for parties, etc. Also I'm pretty good at accompaniment, and another dream I have is to accompany an up and coming singer. I began writing music in 2002 - first on a Roland XP-50, then on a Roland Fantom Xa, and I am now doing my writing on Reason Version 4. For mixing down/fading, I use Gold Wave. I know I still have a lot to learn but the process is nothing short of exciting. I hope I can make music for many more years to come.
I make music here at home on my computer, plus I play at a church in Tigard, Oregon. I hope to branch out and do more live shows some day.
I love all kinds of music but in the 70's I was quite enchanted with Georgio Moroder and artists like him. The track for I Feel Love by Donna Summer is still the bomb. I also was influenced by Jan Hammer and Kraftwerk.
Roland Fantom Xa, Compaq computer, Reason Version 4, Gold Wave Audio, various speakers, etc., and of course my fingers and brain!!!!!!!! :)
Making music is AWESOME!!!
