Hello!

My name is John. I'm from Reading PA USA.
I don't know if you would consider my music electronic in the full sense of the term, but the music I make is done with virtual instruments via MIDI and sample libraries and plug-ins. Most of my tunes emulate acoustic music because being a child of the 60s and 70s I use mostly pianos (acoustic and electric) sounds, drum sounds, and string, horn and some synth sounds. So I'm not your stereotypical Electronica guy, but I do love that genre if it's done well. In fact, I'm open to almost everything if it's arranged and played with style.

I'm also interactive in that I like to hear and review the work of others and I like others to hear and review my work. Constructive critiques are welcome and I always give my opinions with respect and courtesy with the notion that just because I think it sucks, I'm not everybody and if it's your song and you like it a particular way who am I to dog you on it? If you're happy, I'm happy.

My equipment list includes software DAWs Samplitude Music Studio 2008, Mixcraft 5 and Ableton Lite Live. I'm also a relatively new Reason user (version 7) although I realized after I bought the program that it lends itself more to the electronic or experimental type of music more than what I'd been using in the past. So I'm hoping that maybe I can pick up some tips here on Electronic and experimental music to get the most out of Reason that I can. My sound libraries (used with the programs other than Reason) are Garritan Jazz & Big Band 3 for brass and saxophone sounds, Cakewalk Dimension LE for the Garritan Orchestra sounds and I also have the classic version of Miroslav Philharmonik Orchestra. I also use Toontrack EZ Drummer and Melodyne Essentials.
I use a an M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 as a controller and a Peavey PVM 38 dynamic microphone for vocal work and a Line 6 Pod Studio UX2 interface.

So, that's me. If you would like to sample my tunes you will find some at www.soundclick.com/johnbowen

Hi, John.

Reading! I teach at Kutztown U, and there is a very strong Lehigh Valley contingent here.

electro-music is a wide ranging place. I think you'll like it.

I'll give a listen after finals are over. Just done burning the midnight oil on course work tonight.

Welcome aboard Very Happy

Dale

Thanks for the welcome, AI!

You teach at Kutztown U.
I'm wondering if you know Rod Hill. He (privately) taught me guitar some years back.

Nope. I am in year 6 here, maybe Rod was before my time.

I have worked with Frank Kumor in spring 2009 when I was an invited member of KU's World Percussion Ensemble (on 5-string banjo), and am working on a research grant with John Metcalf of music right now.

We'll be doing a computer music seminar in the KU planetarium in March, free & open to the public, and possibly another in late April focusing on student projects. Keep an eye on the Events subforum here as March approaches. Smile
