Music is very imporant to me. I started playing drums my freshman year of high school, and started making electronic music on the PC shortly after that. I brought my drums from Illinois to New York, and slept on a futon so that I could have someplace to store them and practice. Unfortunately, in 2004 I got a job in California and had to leave some of my drums in New York and the rest of my hardware in West Chicago with my parents.
During my senior year I got a band together and we tried to do the battle of the bands. I recorded some of our music, and I'm saving it just for the heck of it. Hopefully some day I'll put something newer here.
Don't expect much- the sound quality isn't that great, and we hadn't been playing for very long when I recorded them.
In addition to drums, I also enjoy writing electronic music. In 2003 I had a song published as the background music in a hidden menu on a nationally distributed ski video. Here it is:
I made that with an old friend, Josh DeSalvo. We go way back, and had a great time making music We were kind of productive in the summer of 2003, and here's another song we made:
And another song, we made in the summer of 2002:
Some works in progress (these will never be finished):
Also, here are
some songs that I made WAY back during my senior year of highschool, like

Also, here's some random doodling I did on november 12, 2003.
Just getting my recording stuff set up, playing with different beats. I feel kind of inspired to maybe put something together.
