    Pretty self-explanatory. Is anyone here a musician? If so, what instruments do you play? Did you study music or just teach yourself? Have you been involved in any musical projects? Let's hear it.

    HI, Yes I do play Music. My First teacher was my Grandmother. She played a Hammond pipper keyboard, that was built in 1948 and the Accordion. At A young age, She noticed my interest in the Keyboard. Her form of instruction was to allow me to sit at the keyboard, and just have at it, for hours on end! Later on, I would get a guitar and drumset. Over the years I have been involved with many aspiring bands, taking on different positions, in each one, from guitar, to drums to vocals and keys. The closest, I've come to succsess, Was In a band called Bloodbath or Disco blood bath or Bloodbot (there may exist many bands with this same name *note, we did not release material.), the name changed often. I was the vocalist, and wrote some of the synth music. It was, kind of a goth/electro outfit, with guitar. We actually landed A permant gig, to play every wed. and sat. in a club called fortune cookie in lower NYC (Manhattan). Unfortunately, the band broke off, shortly after our first few gigs, for numerous reasons.

    Other than that, I have 3 unrealesed demos, And a new 8 song demo that I am currently working on.

    My Question is: would anyone be interested in hearing some of my music? And would anyone wish to collaborate? * See my profile for a short list of Musical inspirations.

    I enjoy partaking in the musics!

    I can't read music, but I can play by ear. I also love to sing.

    I play drums and guitar. I also own a Taglharpa, Bass Jouhiko, a Pipa, an Erhu a Cello and a Violin. I mainly prefer drums but since I can't get to my unit frequently I reduce to playing guitar and I like messing around with the Taglharpa the most when it comes to the bowed instruments. I've also been in a few music projects, working on a new EP right now. One band I'm in is named Litany of Ruinous Entities. I have a few other projects and will provide them upon further request if you're interested.

    multi-instrumentalist here, do composition work for other artists here in Japan sometimes as well (even the government once!) In my band work here it is often me doing all the instruments,mixing,mastering,etc. thankfully have had some of my childhoold heroes here teach me how to do the production side of things better. For my solo music it is all me, including vocals. Though guitar is my favorite the drums and bass are always more important for song writing. When I get board of guitar old FM synths hold me over.

    Music is pretty much my life support. I have played in bands, have been writing original material and recording music for around 20 years. The band I'm playing with currently just released a music video. I also recorded/mixed/mastered the audio recording.

    I've been making Industrial-Hardcore since I was 15, I'm 30 now! I've used FL Studio 5 and 10 for all my music. I think I've made maybe 4 albums worth of material so far. When I was 21 I started getting into playing guitar and working to write my own Metal and I've finally just now started to get the hang of it. Lyrics have been difficult but playing the guitar came pretty naturally. I play in Drop A. I'll post a song when I get one complete. ^-^

    I just released an album of some of my old favorite Industrial pieces of mine I figure some of you would enjoy.

    Goth Von Core - Morbid Fascination

    Cool, pretty musical group here. I used to play bassoon, until it got stolen. Now I play a Dollar Tree recorder flute, pretty good at it too. When I was growing up I played piano. I miss piano alot.
