My name is Rob an it's pleasure to make your acquaintance
About 12 yrs ago I was dragged down into the Australian bush by a
few mates who were determined to show me this style of music Iíd love!
Now at the time I was deeply involved one might go as far as saying obsessed
with piano and classical music more specifically Beethoven, Rachmaninoff and
Liszt loved the lads!..... So anyway we get down to this bush party that was
happening somewhere out in the middle of no-where an I think it's fair to say I hated every moment
of it, couldnít wait to get home!!! was cold, the bloody dance floor was
about half a foot deep in mudd an there were all these hippies everywhere which
at the time was a little daunghting..
So we get back from the party an i'm positive i'll never go to something like
that again, i was shocked how something that sounds that way can even be
called music let alone have all these freaks out in the bush dancing to it for
days straight i thought what a bloody boring way to spend ya wknd why don't
these people listen to normal music!!!!
About a yr later, it was a party Infected Mushroom
were playing at an once again the same few mates convinced me to come along
(something about opening minds an forgetting lifes stresses) anyway they gave
me the same choice Morpheus gives Neo (ya know the one, two colours n all
that!!!) not long before infected were about to play an i shit you not!! by the
end of that infected mushroom set I had not only seen what all these
folks were trying to show me but I had heard a form of music that was the
most amazing thing i had come across I'm my opinion the same thing Beethoven, Rachmaninoff
an Liszt would have written had they had a laptop n midi controller..
So yea here we are today, after a good solid 10-11 years being a punter
an 3-4yrs producing electronic music I have an act called Trippy Technology,
with which I try an incorporate the years I spent playing piano with a little
more modern synthesis an weird freaky (don't worry no infected singing ;-)
noises, don't mind the odd phat bass line either hehe so yea the one thing I do
enjoy almost as much as music is talking so Iíll stop now an let ya have a
