  • Biography
    I love music. I started up my bedroom studio in may 2008. Since then it tends to keep me up until 2 or sometimes 4 in the morning experimenting with music and sound.

    I love to play my Electric Bass. I also play Acoustic Upright Bass, Korg MicroKorg, and a bit of Electric Guitar.

    OCR Secret Santa 2016

    Just sent out my gifts to my person. I was probably one of those people who didn't give much info. If you get stumped, I'd love some plushy thing. Squishables, Yoshi stuffed type thing. I generally do like to be quite surprised and get random things.
  2. I am so happy that this will continue this year. I am more than happy than to share my server space with this project. Maybe I'll even get time to make a song. I'm learning tapping techniques on the bass and it would be cool to take a christmas song and use that technique on a song. Also to The Coop, the animation on the website is awesome! Good job sir.

    Game Music Festival

    Check out the Game Music Festival at http://www.gamemusicfestival.com There's awesome commentary for indie game soundtracks and plenty of interviews with the artists. I did an interview with katethegreat19 aka Erutan for the festival. I also did an interview with a great composer, Coda.

    Bass Guitar Recommendations.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of Ibanez basses. I swear by Music Man. The Music Man Sterling that I have is a dream to play. Here's a couple examples of me playing it... http://tindeck.com/listen/nydo http://tindeck.com/listen/zcza And here's a video of Prince of Darkness giving it a review ... I found mine used. I love buying used gear since it has been worn in already and you can get something better in a lower price range. The music man will be a bit higher than your current price range. However, I think they are well worth it.

    Randy Blythe Manslaughter Charges

    All bullshit. I want to see LoG on Aug 14th with Dethklok. And now it might not happen. Sadness is me.
  10. Of course I will be there! I can't wait to see everyone from OCR, Chiptuners, and the Arecibo Radio dj's and fans.
  11. My friend does not have room. you may want to ask Fusion2004.
  12. I just looked at the price of rental cars and its like 25 bucks a day (Pretty damn low) so i'll probably stay at my buddy's place.
  13. Currently i'm staying at a friends place during Nerdapalooza. He doesn't live nearby so I'll have to rent a car. So If we have enough people I could go without the car until monday and spend that money on a hotel instead. I need to know that you're in before committing to the hotel room.

    OC ReMixes with "quirky" sounds

    http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02062/ The Life and Death of the Mario Brothers by Anosou I always considered the lead synth at 0:22 to sound like a goat.
