2ndMOUSE in the house.
|I never know quite what to say in first posts , even though I've done this many times on other forums , but here goes......
I record under the name 2ndMOUSE.
This is nothing to do with last mice getting cheeze , or other dead rodent5.
The name is from the christopher walken speech at the start of the movie 'catch me if you can' where he says
" 2 little mice , fell into a bucket of cream.
The first mouse , quickly gave up , and drowned.
The 2nd mouse , struggeled so furiously that eventually , he churned the cream into butter , and crawled out.
Today , I am that 2nd mouse. "
I used the name because it symbolizes determination , and I will either succeed at music , or die trying.
I've been making music seriously for about 13 years now,
During this time I've been lucky enough to have airplay on a few radio stations , a track played on the mtv channel , and a track on the cover dvd of computer music magazine.
I've released over 200 tracks online , a lot of which have been free , including a few albums , which you're more than welcome to download from the links on my soundcloud page.
I have been on a label for the last 3 years but im shopping around for another.
I make experimental electronica which I cant classify or define into a narrower sub-genre as its like bashing a trapezius peg into a round hole , and my style seems to change with every track.
I'd say its a mixture of maybe Plaid , luke vibert , BoC , leftfield , detroit techno , idm with a big emphasis on melody , while staying experimental.
My soundcloud is here
A lot of tracks might not be visible right now as my yearly membership expired just a few days ago , which i'll renew next week , but hopefully there is still plenty of recent tracks to listen to.
Im interested in just meeting other musicians in general , possibly remixes / colabs , and getting some feedback on what im doing. Hopefully I'll make some new friends and contacts.
Thanks for reading
