Belated congratulations to you, Joseph. Your artwork for Alio Die is quite intense and really outstanding. The attention to detail almost reminds me a little bit of outsider artist Adolf Wolfli (though you're probably a lot saner than he was, of course).Sounds like a fascinating life route you've taken.Forrest

Quote from: caul on January 28, 2009, 08:33:06 AMHello!My name is Brett Smith, I'm 42 years old and release music under the name Caul. I have been doing so since '94, I think. I've been married for 6 years now, no kids. I started out with music by playing drums, when I was 12. I started making music when I was around 18, when my brother bought a Teac 4 track. Much lower tech than I use now! Currently I use a imac, with Logic Pro, various softsynths and an Ensoniq EPS Classic for my controller. It still boots!2007 & 2008 slowed my music down quite a bit, both my parents passed away in 2007 and 2008 I was out of town quite a bit, cleaning out my mother's house so we can sell it. Finally, I'm feeling more like making some music!This message board reminds me quite a bit of another one I'm a member of- the PriusChat board. A wide variety of people, yet everyone seems to get along well. A nice change of pace from what you see on the news everyday.
QuoteSo sorry about your folks, Brett. I lost my mom and dad in back-to-back years as well. Hope that the passage of time eases the pain a bit. Glad you are returning to music, too. And welcome to the Forum, of course. :)

Quote from: stuyvesant on January 30, 2009, 12:59:31 PMGreetings fellow ambient music lovers! A good friend of mine told me about this forum and it looks pretty cool.I am a 46 year old independent management consultant living in SW PA. I travel extensively and ambient music is the main constant in my travel kit. I must have my daily fill of Steve Roach, Liquid Mind and Ma Ja Le - and many others.I am divorced and have no children.

Quote from: uhurit on February 14, 2009, 05:05:15 PMHello, everyone I am a huge ambient music fan, and my love for electronic music began many years ago when I discovered Berlin techno and rave. Next stop was chicago house. Then I discovered the likes of Zoviet France and Autechre. Later I got hooked on ethno-ambient, and Rapoon/Robin Storey became my obsession. As I grew older, I mellowed out a lot, and my ambient musical tastes (d)evolved into drone music and indian ragas. On the other hand, when I need some adrenaline rush, I still love german industrial bands like Rammstein. I am a seriously foolish audiophile, and have a ton of money invested in fancy amps/speakers/wires/Cd-players. I love fast cars, and still drive only a stickshift. I happen to move around a lot, as I am a transitional protestant minister ;D, and currently live in Wisconsin.
