I started out on the trombone when i was 11, got nowhere, then was playing the drums a year later like it was meant to be. played rock music i n the 70's in bands, then went electronic in 1981. Had several band projects with friends, then have been a 1-man band since 2010. Current band name is called Kalter Trost which means cold comfort in German. Am open to using guest vocalists especially female.
Music is my life, i am also an artist so being able to create is everything!
To get recognition more so than riches. To see people get up and start dancing or at least reacting to my music in the first 30 seconds of my song, then i am satisfied, that means a lot to me!
If more people were creative it would be a peaceful world more than it is now. The level of concentration one needs to be creative leaves little time to be negative & violent!

A never ending need to create something out of nothing. and....i have to please my self first before my art or music is released to the public eye.
To be entertained and possibly influenced.
Usually great, but humble and sometimes scared depending on the crowd. A successful show always makes things more positive!
Many have no reality, just a give me money attitude.
So good so far!
Clubs that have favoritism and politics deciding on who gets to play. It seems harder for unknown bands to even get any gigs at all when you don't know anybody!
Yes, i support our local scene, by attending shows whenever possible. I will help roadie for bands also.
Be unique, but have elements of your idols in your music, that aren't too obvious.
Neuroticfish is one of the world's best electronic bands out there right now, along with And One, De/vision, SITD, & Seabound. A new band i am really impressed with is Cryo from Sweden.
