I'm a Sound Engineer and Designer, finished a Bachelor in theatre production a bit over a year ago and just finished an Ad. Dip. at RMIT in sound production. I also work in an independent CD and DVD store in the city, trying to live out as much of a High Fidelity fantasy as I can. Also working at a club out in Werribee, mixing bands and fiddling with lights.
As a young'n, I spent a great deal of time getting to know music very intimately, as most do, but I feel a very strong connection with rough, hard, dissonant and loud music the most. Don't get me wrong, nothing swoons me like a finely crafted melody, but your passion hits you right in the chest and you know what it is that you love, and I love very loud noise, of pretty much any kind.
These days, I'm passionate about bettering myself. I spent a long time in a bit of a haze in regards to life, I'd like to think that each day you have the opportunity to learn something new about yourself, that there is an underlying challenge in each day, and that if you decipher it right, then the next day might be a bit easier. So I'm experimenting with new things, in the hope of unlocking a secret set of keys to a happy life. I've only got a few keys on the ring so far, but they've unlocked some pretty old and rusty doors. (I think i've taken this analogy too far.)
Other things I do include:
-Mixing and producing a range of music and sounds from hip-hop and singer-songwriter to spoken word and metal.
-actually making music myself (mostly electronic)
-working on a variety of different creative endeavours with visual artists, other musicians and theatre makers.
-Vapeing, because smoking these days is not actually something you need to do anymore to get a nicotine hit.
I also have a Tumblr, it is full of pretty B&W things.
