  • Biography
    Anthony Higham grew up in Atascadero California. Starting in 6th grade, he began playing in the concert band at his school in Templeton Ca. He was always on top of his game when it came to music and religiously practicing and figuring out how to get the most out of the music situation he was put in. Trumpet was his instrument of choice, and catchy melodies and harmonies were his passion. During high school, Higham began writing his own songs and performing them at school concerts. His experience in Music theory and various ensembles in high school led him to discovering more about writing songs and performance. He began playing in the College level Jazz ensemble his senior year and graduated with the award given by the music department from Templeton High school. After graduating, He began General education at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo Ca. Much involved with the ensembles and music classes there, He continued writing for those ensembles. This is when he knew that music would definitely be his passion and continue to pursue it in a career. Strongly influenced by the music around him, Higham began wanting to create music for events and companies. This is what Ätio is all about.

  1. I recently was asked by a friend to transition the original 8bit Zelda music from the game into my own buildup into this unknown artists drop. I want to give credit to the artist for the meat of the song, but I have no idea who made it. https://soundcloud.com/atiomusic/legend-of-zelda-dj-atio-remix
  2. East west quantum leap has some epic sounding snare drum ensembles and single snares. Also you get top notch orchestral and wind instruments. It may be limiting for DCI snare drum lines but I believe it can do the job if you just want some simple stuff. Not to mention the Wagner bass drum is pretty ominous as well.
  3. Well done though, man. Wish I could give any criticism but I can't bring that I'm a horn guy. Haha.
  4. Not exactly a percussionist, but marched DCA for a season. I thought with what little you had to work with as far as rhythmic variation in the song (in the first video), you made it interesting by creating new accents. And interesting hearing your interpretation of the melody using rhythmic melody. This would be really cool to hear with a horn line and auxiliary percussion. Is it for anything in particular?
  5. Got some inspiration while listening to skyrim and various other orchestral music. So I decided to record my vocals and guitar over some orchestral instruments. https://soundcloud.com/atiomusic/servitude
  6. Thanks man, I'm still waiting on the judges decisions; As I have done as much on it as I can. The hard drive that I had the FL file crashed, so i'd have to completely start fresh if i were to do more on it. In the meantime, I may work on some more FFX stuff (zanarkand) in the future! -Anthony
  7. This is amazing, great work man. love the bridge with all the extensions. Nice reharm bro. killer stuff.
  8. Hey all, Here's my take on Zanarkand. Thoughts appreciated. https://soundcloud.com/anthony-higham/ffx-to-zanarkand-wip-atio-remix
  9. Thanks, man. I will finalize the song soon by tweaking a few things, like Eq/levels... Maybe add a few things melodically/harmonically/rhythmically to my liking and see what you all think about it, then submit soon.
  10. thank you! I will continue to perfect it. LATEST UPDATE: https://soundcloud.com/anthony-higham/wall-market-update-2
  11. My intention on this track is to make it my own but to also sound somewhat like the original, say, if a metal band were to play it at a show. I did alter some of the chords, and melody. But at the same time, respecting the basic harmonic structure of the song as well as the melodic structure. If you change both the melody and harmony underneath at the same time for too long, it can become unrecognizable.
  12. Here's a link to one of my latest electronic tracks. Lemme know your thoughts! https://soundcloud.com/anthony-higham/drift-away
  13. Alright, so I think i did what you guys said.. take a listen and see for yourself! Added some saturation to the drums using Limiter, also fixed the buildup and ending. I think I'm done working on this one for tonight. Hope everyone had a good New Years! https://soundcloud.com/anthony-higham/wall-market-update-2
  14. Thanks for the input. I am assuming by, "synth" you are referring to the rhythm synth? or are you talking about the Lead melody synth? I Did double track the rhythm guitar and panned 100% to each side. Perhaps the rhythm synth being slightly delayed to the left is interfering with the harmonic frequencies of the guitar.
  15. Thank you ALL for your valuable critiques. I have been working hard at implementing all of the advice given. I altered the melody a bit, but mainly to address dissonance due to some re-harmonization in the chord structure. I also subbed the drums to a full kit rather than just a kick snare and hi-hat, and added rhythmic variations/fills (not as much copy paste). I EQ'd the re-verb bus so that it didn't have so much mid-range harmonics sticking out.. Let me know what you all think and I welcome any and all comments! -DjAtio https://soundcloud.com/anthony-higham/ffvii-wall-market-update
