Totally off-topic (but this forum is made for that, no ?), but are there any musicians here ?
I play guitar and bass.

Any others ?

erikd makes some music Smiley

And... uhm... I also did some rather bad techno-ish stuff in the past. Check it out if you're feeling oddly brave today Wink

Yes, I used to make a living from music. I used to record and produce music in my own studio, was a hired musician and a teacher for studio engineering.
I play bassguitar, keys and drums (bassguitar is my 'main' instrument).
These days my music is just for fun.

The same for me. I had a band last years, it was fun, but that's all. Now I play more acoustic guitar than electric and I love playing jumbe (yembe) at parties Smiley

I play the drums, but I can also play piano although I don't like it. Tongue

I also play the drums. Have done for about 13 years?
Also played congas/bongos and timpani at school (not at the same time).
Tried to teach myself piano and got up to "Blow the Man Down" before losing interest.

I also used to make electronic music with FastTracker II.
(I'm assuming I won't have to explain trackers in a gaming forum?!)
It all sounded extremely amatuerish, mostly because I'm a percussionist, not a musician.

I play bass and guitar. My current band (Sequoia - that's me on bass) are really starting to make a name for ourselves locally and I'm loving it...

BTW, you can find some of my music here:
http://www.garageband.com/artist/movegaga
http://www.soundclick.com/bands/4/movegagamusic.htm
It's a kind of funk-hiphop crossover band. I played all instruments on these songs (except some guitar tracks and of course except in the live recording) and I recorded it at home with the rapper. I play in two other bands too.

Cool to see there are more musicians here :-)

Yes, a single key minor musician. :-)

In addtion to C# I'm quite good with D#, F#, G# and A# (b) also and on a piano it sounds a little bit Chinese then. So maybe I'm a minor musician, too.

... ;-)


Seriously though, I've used to play piano and flute, but today due to lack of time I rather play MAME.

Cool.. I just gave a listen to the links posted..  Erikd pulling out the funk! Smiley

I just promoted/threw a smallish underground electronic music event here in San Francisco this last weekend. It was cool..  About 150 people showed up, so it was bumping for a good portion of the event.  

I had a pretty decent techno/hard techno set mid night with a grip of new records and got a decent reception.  This is house/trance land... Well most of the US is, but the SF seems rather thin for diversity of electronic dance music.. Smiley  So it was nice...

So if inclined you guys can check out this new set here:

Sorry, 133 MB is a bit too much for my slow-ish, download limited internet connection...  Embarrassed

Heh heh... Yeah.. I meant _techno_  the genre... Smiley

There is of course the Detroit techno scene here in the US, but I'm not much into it.

I must concede that for .techno. I follow mostly what is going on in UK/Europe; though there is a small techno scene here spread thinly around the country.  

It freaks me out when people give SF the nod for having at least some techno activity compared to .none. in most places.  I think it is way dry out here, but then you travel elsewhere and go my goodness... Smiley

And if that isn't bad enough I'm also into the eccentric reaches of where electronic music goes... Also quite into microtonal music, and this stuff just isn't visible that much at all.

Ok... enough sillyness on genres of EDM and other such pontification as this isn't the topic; though interesting.. Wink

and Erikd... the cost of a 133MB download is not much considering the cost of vinyl.  It is upwards of $12 a record (for 1-4tracks). Yuk! When I started it was $9 a record.  Plus I am a sound quality nut, so its 224kbps encoded.

Must mention that your audio work sounded good too though it wasn't a particularly high bit rate source that I listened too.

For shorter d/l I have a recent track here:
http://egr.egregious.net/egrv-01/


For a somewhat tech twist to all of this.. I am looking to get out a very expressive audio middleware product next year for game development and other apps..  I am currently on a working group with the MMA that is defining an open spec for interactive audio systems.
http://www.iasig.org/wg/ixwg/index.shtml

My system will be able to do what it allows and a lot more    such as real time synthesis, procedural audio.. You can kind of think of the system like programmable shading for graphics except you write "audio shaders".

Very true! But truth be told: I don't *ever* buy any techno records, not even if they were $1.
I was just very curious about what you've put together...

I just gave your shorter track a listen, and although it's not really my kind of thing, I must say that I sounds great and you've got some really clever beats going on in there!  Cool

Cool.. Smiley  

I attempted to start a record label last year, but didn't receive US distro for my 1st record.. Little bummed still as that put a damper on my production for now..  

Yeah.. Unless you were into EDM (and more specifically techno) then grabbing that mix set is kind of moot..  It does trip me out though that unless you get the records or by chance someone has a mix then most likely those tracks won't be heard..  Granted I'm sure somewhere on the net is an enclave of folks that might have ripped copies of obscure genres, but even then...

I am really interested to see all of the indie record labels put up their catalogs for digital distribution. There is so much good EDM out there that is hard to find.

A side project of mine is to create a USB enabled DJ mixer. I have created a prototype made from Phidgets (www.phidgets.com) and it works with my framework/GUI nicely.  I am also mostly done in integrating support for Ms. Pinky which is a vinyl cueing system for digital media.  Cool thing is that you can assign the vinyl cueing system to any parameter in the framework.. say manipulating a graphics shaders variables.. Smiley  Gonna be fun when I get this stuff out.

Here are some pictures of the 1st prototype:
http://research.egrsoftware.com/hardware/protomix1/

In a month or so (probably more) when I have yet saved up more cash to throw into this project I am making a 2nd prototype as I have found a dude with a CNC mill... damn though.. good buttons are hard to come by for non-production sized runs. Gonna spend $100 on getting 11 nice buttons.. bastards! I'm also powder coating the 2nd prototype, so it should look more legit in regard to gear.. Smiley
