    Heh, thanks. (Threadjacking sequence initiated).

    I've been making electronic music half-seriously for the past few years (I play bass and sing, and have been in bands for a while now. Recently, the last one I was in broke up.) I need to make music somehow, and since my band disbanded, I figured I would put some of my more "finished" (yeah...finished...sure) work up on the Intar-web.
