I'm just someone who really likes music. My dad is mostly responsible for this, introducing me to everything from Dave Brubeck, to Camel, Yes, Rick Wakeman, Deep Purple, Genesis, Elton John and more. Growing up in the 80's has had many benefits for me as far as music is concerned.
Sakari Infinity Musician
One, is inheriting all the great music my parents grew up with in the 60's and 70's. A 2nd is the way music was evolving in the 80's with new synths coming online and all the great songs and bands around at the time. Thirdly - computers. I grew up through practically the whole history of home computers and video games, from Sinclair Spectrum to Commodore Amiga to PC. I also had the opportunity to try my hand at programming sound on some of these machines. Computers have their own sound qualities - chiptunes/fm/wave table and video game music has become my favourite genre. Going through the 90's in my teens started dance, rap and techno well on their way, so I also enjoy those forms of music and finally, the list would be incomplete if I did not mention film scores, the first of which I really took notice of properly was Han Zimmers music score to The Rock.
In terms of instruments, I learned briefly to play the trumpet at age 10, then the flute at age 11. I was unfortunately unable to keep learning these instruments when we moved country and schools. I finally was able to purchase a keyboard at age 15, which I took very seriously and taught myself to play.
Take all the above and the music I make is usually instrumental, atmospheric with elements of electronic and video game influence as well. Hope you enjoy my efforts.

And Then There Was…

An almost mournful atmospheric synth-based track with a mechanical rhythm and chirpy lead synth. It reminds me a little of music in the likes of Piranha by OTM – a spacey theme with a spacey title. And Then There Was…
