RIVEL

I was always surrounded by music. My father owned a music repair shop ever since i could remember. He first started in the garage and then moved out to a storefront in a surrounding city. I used to skip school and pretend i was sick just to hang out at his shop and play NES and mess with the instruments. I started playing basoon at age twelve or thirteen but got tired of reading sheet music and moved on to bass guitar at about age 14. I found a keyboard in the dumpster at the fire station by my house and began to program ska and reggae tunes and play bass along with it while recording it on a tape deck we had at home. With that same keyboard i found, i started to try and program it with a demo of cakewalk i had but i got pissed because MIDI seemed too complicated to me at the ripe old age of 16. I then found out about a lot of software based music creation programs and i never looked back. I have been dumpster diving, thrift store shopping, sysex commanding, and nerding it up, looking for the next eventual step to my musical evolution for about 8 years now. I am 24 now and i fell i have honed in on my own personal style. I try to create a fusion of dub, reggae, dancehall, and experimental electonica.
