you have some really awesome music. :)

When I first started it was because I wanted to create a full track but had no means of recording individual instruments or the funds to do so, so the first program I started to get into was FL which I found frustrating after a while with crashes and not being able to get out of it what I was after.
My main motivation at the time was for others to hear the ideas I had because I have pretty much always played by ear without much knowledge of music theory and I couldn't play what I heard in my head.

After a while of not doing any tracking for lack of info how to progress further and not knowing anyone else that was into tracking (doesn't help living in an isolated area :P) I met auxie who got me into Jeskola Buzz and introduced this compo and the general scene to me I started to use tracking more as an outlet for my own interest but still enjoy hearing others opinions. Ideally I'd love to be able to do it for a living but I still think my overall knowledge and skill needs alot more finetuning for that to happen.

I put so much pressure on myself to make music for a living, that nowadays, first and foremost, I create music for my own pleasure. When I enter, I don't really expect to win, I just hope to get a little feedback.

I worry a little, because although I'm composing for my own pleasure, I don't listen back on past pieces that often. It's like once something's in the can I don't want to hear it anymore.

I'm thankful that the tracking community gives a way to create music very cheaply, because the costs of instruments and performing gear are way beyond my means.

I create music and other quite musical stuff for myself. These days it is easy enough for guys like me to make something musical and I just dig in it as much as my time allows it.

Being the most greatest newb here all in all. :D
