Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

I've been playing guitar since I was really young but my inspiration to produce electronic music can greatly be attributed to hallucinogens + Electric Forest

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

I listened to more music than most people my age, which is a statement that lasted me from 8 years old until now. I started playing drums, and got alright at it. Couldn't get into enough bands, started writing material myself. Got decent at guitar.

Started getting into electronic music/listening to more than just metal, rock, and prog, and here I am.

Plus, it's the only thing I can seem to do semi-well. Most of the shit I write doesn't sound all trope-ish. Not that what I write is very good, but it definitely has its own feel to it. I have interesting ideas, I just need a LOT (X10000000000) of development/mixing experience/mastering experience to get where I want to be.

Edit: Oh yeah, I was also really impressed by shit I heard. I'm impressed by a lot of things, but music really floored me. It was mystical and understandable at the same time. Guess that encouraged me to believe it was something I have a shot at doing well.

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

Been playing piano all my life so I was always into playing music.

I took a liking to electronic music when I started high school. Learned about virtual DJ and started doing shitty ass mixes. Then I downloaded Linux Multimedia Studio (Jesus christ nostalgia) and made a song in 4 minutes thinking i was the next skrillmau5...

It has grown into a strong love/hate relationship, I absolutely love making music, and sometimes I delve so deeply into it that nothing else matters.. I wont talk to anyone, wont eat, wont drink.. It can go on all day. But it feels like my effort is going into nothing and its like somebody telling me I should just give up.

Maybe thats what is pushing me to making music actually... just sitting at school and thinking about getting home and writing a nice piece of music, no matter how long it will take me or how much it will kill me inside to try for hours on end to no motherfucking avail..

All hail writers block I guess..

TLDR: Making music is hard, and that's what inspires me, as well as draws me away,


That was quite a rant. sorry

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

Great thread with some awesome responses so far, jokes aside, hah!

What inspired me to start making music initially was my open mind toward music. I am the last person that would write off any musical creativity as poor. I approach music with zero judgement. I may not take a liking to it completely but everything has a chance and nothing is terrible. Although I put my heart and soul into producing, appreciating music in this sense allowed me to approach creating with very little shame whatsoever for my end product.

I come from a significant Audio/Video background in which was mostly self taught and some Youtube/Google knowledge as well as schooling at CT School of Broadcasting (networking and learning nifty A/V tricks). Picking up software that is interesting comes natural, difficult at times but easy to overcome the hurdles with great communities such as IDM and great people who share within the field with love and knowledge for production.

I love sitting in a dark room for extended periods of time with my A/V edits and music production.

Cheers! :mayonesa:

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

When i was wee (cassette days) if a song had a silence i would pause the recording and slip another tune in. My dads hifi had stutter (volume effect). Before that my first album on repeat was War of the Worlds.

Growing up I was more into art and thought I would be a graphic designer. I had a cracked copy of 3d studio max but on the same disc was Acid Pro 2. I was hooked. In the end I became average at both.

But music is the mistress and I must tame her for her fractals hold the key to the universe.

The fact that music needed to be made. And that I could do it. Would've been silly to not make it when I could.

Acid. Hearing music while looking at the stars on acid. Being able to see music in the universe and knowing that I am a part of it. Bought an electric guitar not long after. Never got really good and then I got into electronic music and was like wait why dont I try this.

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

Gran's pots and pans. I figured out how to use the record player and open cupboards by about age three, so every time I was left to my own devices I would collect all the pots and pans and set up my drum kit in front of the turntable and then turn it up to eleven and smash out some sweet solos...

Until gran had to cook dinner... The venue had shitty set times and the cunts didn't pay!

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

Seeing deadmau5 and bassnecater at bonaroo when I was young, and having only preformed other peoples music up to that point.

It dawned on me that in all my musical experience I had never composed beyond a few drum cadences and stand song or two for my marching band.

I could superseded the physical limitations in computers, and learn about the stuff that really matters.

pretty much that

Well I enjoy listening to music and going to gigs.. I've experimented with various instruments, and I enjoy creative writing and painting so I figured why not try and compose music as well

I would say once I was able to touch my older siblings equipment and discovered that I had a burning desire within to create and share the spiritual connection to music with others. I experienced the connection as a clubber, DJ and there after a producer.

Eddie Amador got it right: Not every body knows house music, it's a spiritual thing, a body thing, a soul thing.

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

i started "creating" music in about 2006-2007. all 2007 was my first documented time i began creating focused goal-oriented tracks. before this it was just creativity and learning and growing. in 2008-2009 i began actually putting my ideas into much more mature structure and form. i got my ideas from listening to experimental genres on download.com and am extensive set of trance music. then through the years i aquired more andorr underground hip hop and discovered idmf in 2009. then the rest was just getting better and becoming serious about my music career, rather than just for fun stuff.

Re: What inspired you to start creating music?

Got A* in music composition for making a rap beat at school 5 years ago. That weirdly led to Hardstyle (which I have no idea why, it's pretty bad :/). Then I became sane again and went on to DnB and anything electronic :3
