Bio:
[Formerly Crimson Moon]

Finally, I changed my name to reflect what I did to my actual artist name years ago. It kind of makes me sad that I couldn't change the artist name, but oh well. Never be perfect.

On this, the literal eve of my twenty-first birthday, I start anew.

A little about me:

I'm extremely private and non-social, so forgive me if I ignore any rating or praise I am fortunate enough to receive. It's not you; it's me.

And yes, I'm still composing evermore variations on Shift, if you knew of the obsession before I collapsed my original user account.

Projects:

The Enigmachina Variations: Like Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations, I made thirteen variants of a main theme (in this case, a chord progression and a melody) for various people I know. I tried to encompass their nature, or their style, or something about them into each piece. Some people, I had an idea what to do with their track immediately; others required a more experimental approach. However, I feel each one fits the person well.

Alignment: The most recent album I completed, sort of. Dolce Stil Novo is still a work in progress, but that's all I have left to do. Once I find the logic file it's stored in, I'll fix the drum track and be done with it. Version 2 will be the final version. Alignment is ten tracks, a foray into strange and eclectic styles of electronic music.

Music Background I consider my tastes eclectic, but I prefer the quantized drum to the played, the keyboard hit to the guitar strum. Digital to analog. In short, I'm heavy towards Electronica.
Music Skills Little formal training. Had a keyboard and used it since I was five. Picked up the clarinet in high school. Learning on my own how to play guitar. I obviously have a way with flowery prose, but I can't write lyrics. I've tried. I can't take the structure it requires, apparently. Still on the fence about a spoken-word poetry-over-music piece, though. That might work.
Music Hardware M-Audio Keystation 49e keyboard; in between proper Studio monitors.
Music Software OS: Mac OS X.5.5. Sequencer: Logic Express 7.0.1. Synths I use often: ReFX Vanguard; Native Instruments Absynth (3, 4); ReFX Slayer; Native Instruments Battery (3); Rob Papen Blue; Rob Papen Predator; WaveArts PowerSuite 5
