Howdy! My name is Chris, and I am a huge fan of music. Well, I should say I am a huge fan of listening to music. I only got into making music with this class, but so far it has been a blast. I never got into production before because playing an instrument was never easy for me and I do not like having to make a whole project in one go. However, with Music Tech, you can work on a project whenever you want and you have a vast array of tools to listen to it in different ways before you make any crazy changes. This has been a huge part in my enjoyment of this class.
My favorite types of music are alternative and rock, with pop and country coming in close behind. My favorite artists include DREAMERS, Bastille, The Killers, Shinedown, and Paramore. Some runners-up include Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, and Big Time Rush. They have all been big parts of my music life and their music has both inspired me musically and spiritually.
My hobbies include video games, jogging, loving dogs, baking, and working with computers. Of course, I listen to music while doing all of these things. I also am interested in working in Japan in my future, at least for a little while, to experience the innovative ways they implement new technologies as well as to see the beautiful tourist attractions. For this reason I am currently learning Japanese on the side as well as keeping up with my Spanish and trying to learn the basics to other European languages.
My dream job is to become a video game developer, starting out in the lower echelons of gameplay design, with aspirations to become a lead design one day. I have so many fun ideas for these kinds of things and ideas to implement them, I just lack the time to chase every idea my brain whips up.
My future in music is a dedicated listener and a minor producer. Just making jams for myself and having some fun every now and then, but perhaps I could use it to produce some music for a video game side project. I guess we'll have to wait and see what the future holds!
