I am just curious about it....

I am working in a music studio...
if you need some help on it too, i hope i can

i have found a lot of musicians envolved in art and in 3d too

Maybe some little "Da Vinci"s around.....

woh, woh, waaah, waaah! (no not a baby-crying mandolin). (10 years)


i also play

wlaptong! ting, tung, vroom...(8 years)


and lastly, i play


tooohng, tooohng.....(2 years, but a rank newbie)

Hehe, anything creative all fits together. I own my own studio. I play guitar, bass, a little keys, harmonica,and sing. I've got two cd's released also. And all of this for far more years than I can remember, or 40 whichever comes first.:cool:

I am primarily a drummer, but I have been writing my own crappy songs now.. playing guitar, bass and singing.
some of my crappy songs are on my website.

I played all the instruments on those tunes.
I warn you though.. I sing like a goat!

Piano for quite a few years (since 2nd grade... I'm in 10th now... but since i don't practice much at all I'm probably not half as good as you might imagine)

Drums (for about 6 months)

Harmonica (not really seriously but I can play it decent)

Yep, I know a lot of people that are animators and musicians. I actually run a record label in addition to working on commercials as a 3D animator. It's called IsDiff recordings. We have a few 6 artists and we mainly do experimental electronic stuff.

There does indeed seem to be a common relationship between 3D artists and musicians.

About a third of my business is writing/producing music for everything from corporate videos and music on hold to working with indie artists and mastering audio CDs. We've also been getting quite a bit of voice-over work in the studio here during the past year for short films, video, and games.

Kinda cool seeing whos playing music in here, I play the drums, in a band, and we're actually finishing up our first cd. www.standardsound.com.

Also, working on a project where I recorded me playing the drums in different sections and I'm going to have a character "air drum" to me playing in a little story.

It's cool to see so many musicians in here! CG and music go hand in hand as far as I am concerned...

I myself play bass, piano/keyboards, and guitar...I've played only bass professionally though.

You can hear some of my band's stuff here. (http://www.polarific.com) The songs on there are actually from our last album. The latest and final album is being finished up as we speak...

gave it all up for cg, though, and never looked back:)

Violin----15 years...It was my major in college...

I also played the flute and Vibraphone in the high school jazz band.

Incidentally, did anyone go to the emerging technologies pavilion at Siggraph and see a demo of a prototype software where you could create symphonic scores by drawing different colored bars across an interface?...It was cool!

Good to see I'm not alone.

I play spanish guitar since I can remeber (mostly Spanish songwriters, Silvio Rodriguez but also Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones...)

I played bass with a band for something less than a year, but bass is really not my instrument.

Now I'm trying to learn piano time to time... really frustrating.

I bin playing piano/keyboard for 26 years (my god I feel old now), and bin doing a fair bit of arranging in Cubase for 13 years...

I have 2 guitars (one electric and one acoustic) but I never seem to find the time to learn them well enough to actually play anything decent :(

I write pop/rock songs and attempt to sing them too :p

Guitars, for many years now.
Also do some keyboards, and sequencing for Drums / bass.
Use a GI-10 /GA2 guitar interface for 'bass' - also cool for sax solos! :D

Been playing and writing for a long time - the only thing that stopped me doing every day was Lightwave ;)

Music wise, love to play rock and blues.
I normally end up writing ballads <shrugs> go figure!

Had a group or two for a while, now I do everything at home in my little studio / study.

I've never used Sonar, but I know Steinberg Cubase - it's a sequencing program :)

ronaldomiranda
08-15-2003, 09:54 PM
Hey JVitale, are you talking about Igor engraver notation?

Sonar and Cubase are sequencing music programs, like Leigh said

But with Sonar and Cubase you can add audio (imported) or recorded live, and mix it (both midi and audio) and export it as a wav file for burn in a CD...

I use Emagic's Logic Audio these days. unreal program!

I actually started out waaaaaay back in the begining of time using MOTU Performer on the Mac Plus/SE, then Opcode's Vision sequencer on my Mac II (whoohoo 12-inch, 8-bit color screen!!!). Eventually Vision and Studio Vision were swallowed up and I switched to Logic.

i was there for 3 semesters during 90-91, actually...had to drop out because of the cost. i lost track with most everyone i knew there, except occasionally i see gillian welch around (i had her in two of my music theory classes with bill schism (sp?)).

in my last band i played with a drummer who went the year after i did. he plays in a band now called foursidecircle (in dallas). if you're in irving, you might have heard of the dallas area musicians group (DAM)...i got to know a lot of folks through them.

another good friend, bleu mcaulley ended going after me as well, and is still up in boston (doing very well).

I got keyboard lessons for two years when I was about eleven. Didn't really like it that much and never practised enough. But it was a good foundation for getting a general understanding for music.

Later (age 15) I joined a band. As a singer/songwriter. Couldn't sing, though, so I got kicked out.

At last (age 18) I found the instrument designed for me: the computer. I started doing electronic music - house, techno, that kind of thing for the next five years.

Two years ago (age 27) I stumbled across a program called "Reason" which is absolutely amazing. I used it eventually for my short film.

Pretty cool! I studied Line Writing with ol' Schism--tough as hell class!
Yeah I've lost contact with a lot of people too since I'm not playing much these days. But a lot of my good friends made it big and I'm happy for them. Paula Cole, Warren Hill, Mindi Abair and a few others. Anyway I make SOOO much better money as a CG artist, and I also don't have to put up with all the music biz BS--so I can do what I want with my music. ;)

Thanks! I'll have to look into DAM.. I've only been here 7 months since moving from Boston and I'm itching to play with some people.

Haven't had much time to play lately...

This band went the way of the dodo around 1999 (i played bass on this - i also recorded the demos):

This one folded in 1992 or something, but we had a one time only "reunion" gig last fall (You can see me drummin' there...):

Funny how many people who work in art and design who also do music... :)

Waaay back I used to DJ, and I made a lot of music (minimalistic techno) around 1995-98 by the alias Implosion, and released a few records (on vinyl and compliations) on the labels Beatservice (Norway), Emergency Broadcast (Holland), Arcade (Holland) a.o.
I was heavy into the rave scene at that time and playing live was most fun. Will never forget when I played live for a crowd of about 8000 people and they went totally berserk dancing to my music... Wild.

But then I got interested in 3D and couldn't find time to do music anymore. I used to work on Cubase in a room full of old analogue synths and Akai samplers (still have 'em). Have several friend who are pro-musicians and I'm very tempted at doing music again using the amazing soft-synths and stuff available today. Having it all on your Mac without a room of hardware synths seems like heaven. I must pick it up again soon...

Here are a couple of old tracks of minimalistic techno I did back in 1996-97 (MP3 files about 8-9MB each):
Implosion - Lobotomy (http://www.akdesign.no/music/lobotomy.mp3)
Implosion - Turmoil (http://www.akdesign.no/music/turmoil.mp3)

Note: To be played loooud, preferably in a crowded club after 3am... ;)

ArneK
08-17-2003, 05:22 PM
Thanks Claw. They sound a bit dated now in my opinion, but they work like hell on the dancefloor still :)

Yup, you heard right. A Roland Juno 106 was the baby of my setup along wirth an old SH-101, TB-303, JV-2080 and a JV-30. And an Akai S1000 sampler of course. All mixed on a Yamaha ProMix01 and a Mackie.

Arne,
you really have to have a look at Reason by Propellerheads (http://www.propellerheads.se). It brought me back to making music again, too. I was sooo much into techno and the whole rave scene back in '93-'96. Aah, those were the days...

At the time, my flatmate and I spent hours after at the computer after we got home from uni, doing our own tracks, and eventually we, too, got signed by No Respect Rec. for one release (http://www.themarcside.com/music.html), which was quite exciting.

Couldn't listen to your tracks yet, cause I'm on 56k at the moment. I'll check them out tomorrow.

Mostly a drummer, I can play guitar, keyboards, and Therimin. I prefer composition than performing. I recently did all the music and sound effects for our DVD with Sonar.

Arne, I updated the link. Don't even know my way around my own website...

I also listened to your tracks. While I found "Turmoil" a wee bit to abstract for my taste, I liked "Lobotomy". Made me remember long nights in the club, when most of the people had already left. Me and a friend: still dancing.

Also, it sounds a bit like some of the International Deejay Gigolo stuff of recent years, maybe less "polished".

Bass guitar rules!! I have three. A 5 string Yamaha, Encor Jaz with frets ripped off and Washburn acoustic 5 string and I want more.

There is definitely a link between art and music. When I started seeing rythm in paintings a wole world opened up. Also animation is closely linked to music because of the timing.

It can be a bit distracting when I am working at home though. Once I am playing, that is it for the next few hours.

Hey this is my kind of thread! I play guitar, drums, bass, keyboard and do some vocals here and there. In 1996 I sold most of my recording equipment to buy me Lightwave 5.0, haven't looked back since!

I've been neglecting my music for a few years now (a record label is screwing us over, long story) but I did release my first full length album in 2001. Anyone interested can check out some of our tracks here: http://www.mp3.com.au/avrigus or here: http://www.avrigus.com

The style of music is like an eclectic mix of Enya, Metallica and Beethoven. Any feedback would be most welcome! :buttrock:

Hi all.

I play guitar. Hmm, 16years... Well I've owned one or other type of guitar during that time. If I add up my playing time, I'm sure its a fraction of that. And as you grow older and acquire new reponsibilities (the nappy wearing variety), the guitars get replaced by JOY of JOYS - fridges, tumbledryers and slow cookers.

AARGHH!!!

(I always manage to keep at least one though, but I miss my 12 string)
