  • Biography
    Native of Saguenay region, Sylvain Martel A.K.A. Fairlight is an independent musician and composer based in Quebec City, Canada.

    Self-taught in drums, piano, guitar and singing, he makes his composition debut at the end of the 90's with Impulse Tracker and Cakewalk Pro Audio software. Throughout the following years, he takes part in various concerts and musical improvisation nights, composes soundtracks for independent video games and short films, records demos for amateur artists, produces drum exhibition videos, and also animates countless karaoke nights.

    Nowadays he can be seen roaming in Quebec cabarets, anywhere an unattended instrument can be found, or in his home studio where he tweaks, learns, and always prepares something new...

  1. Hi everyone! I happened to be ego-surfing on Google this morning and found out that the first website coming up with the actual me was OverClocked, and was extremely surprised and happy to discover that people are still downloading and commenting on my remix... with extremely kind comments, at that! So I wanted to heartfully thank everyone for the nice comments on this remix! A note about MIDI-sounding... The track is all made in MIDI and played back by a Panasonic SX-KC600 synthesizer. It was the first track I produced with this synthesizer after buying it; I was just discovering the magic of MIDI and Cakewalk Pro Audio so I didn't know how to play in depth with parameters like attack and decay... The synthesizer doesn't provide anything to really tweak these anyway. Now listening to it after so many years I'd love to correct a bunch of stuff, like quantizing and volume, but I don't know if I could replace the current version with a newest one; I asked DJ Pretzel by e-mail but he didn't reply. Thanks again people!
