    Music Theory

    I'm taking theory 3 in uni right now, and I'm kind of scared. Theory 2 was difficult! What am I going to do? What was not covered!? AH! I love four part writing, though, it's second nature to me! SATB chords rule!!

    Ableton Live

    Obsessed, Blessed & Cursed

    I never chose to start making music, it chose to make itself through me.  I don`t have any training nor was I brought up with any instruments at my disposal.  So it was a shock and a fright to be a little boy plagued with tantalizing sounds forced into my mind in the middle of...
