    36, Hobbyist at the moment.

    Went to Recording Skewl at Omega in Rockville MD in the early 90s

    Interned at Kajem in PA around 93/94. I was a horrible intern. Being pulled aside way too oftem. Being told I scared the band ,"Cinderella". Having my perpetual bed head made fun of by Andy Johns in the chance meeting in the hallway. Met Kenny Arnoff when he sessioned for the 'Rella' which was a breath of fresh air compared to most of the pro musicians I've met in my life. God it was gloriously horrible. Cleaning patch cables during a Boy Band Overdub session that was part bording school part alvin and the chipmunks. Almost glad I work in a warehouse.

    Just finish'd making a delight-i-ful album,
    full of fine vocals and fascinating rhythum....



    Tubasolo, born in Brussels, Belgium, from Italian and Belgian parents.

    As a child in the sixties: apparently fascinated by, and obsessed with music, I get my first piano lessons.

    As a teenager in the early 70s: apparently discovering the "sex & drugs & rock'n'roll" philosophy right when the whole planet does, I get a pretty funny view on life, the universe and everything. School? What school? Getting my first instruments (synths) through shady ways. First gigs with an artsy funk band, just making weird Eno-esque noises.

    Early 80s: migrated to Paris. First music jobs, and teaching electronic music (!) in an "alternative art center". A two-year stint in Tahiti (French Polynesia), making jingles for French TV overseas and arranging Tahitian Pop (what?) in a studio owned by a Chinese woman. I live on a sailboat for a year. As an illegal alien trying to start a business (stupid me), I finally get deported from paradise island. Back to Paris, and to school, to learn all that I had missed: harmony, counterpoint, fugue, orchestral writing, jazz standards.... Financing that with IT work. I get married and become French.

    90s: making jingles for "RTL" (radio & tv) in a Parisian studio. Divorce, re-marriage, IT jobs again to finance my own DIY jazz-fusion project (hi Fulcrum! ; ). Thinking of myself as a very serious musician now . When my "Inward Tides" album is finished, I realize I'd have to form, handle, and possibly pay a 12-piece big band, including a cellist and an ud player, and find live dates for it, would I ever want those compositions of mine to generate any interest. Fuck that! (divorce again).

    00s: through the magic of early on-line music collaborations, I meet JG, and lure her to France.

    The rest (most of it) is wombian history. I do mainly electronic music production for a couple labels now, and I'm always eagerly seeking new collaborations in that field.

    Btw, I never touched a tuba in my life. Which is now conveniently resumed in less than 20 lines. How weird!

    Hey, what's goin on?

    I'm Tito, I was around at the old forum for a while but I wasn't too active. Recognize a few heads. I was Tito then as well.

    I live in West Hollywood, I have a little home project studio that's not impressive. I love it though.

    I make hip-hop beats and electronic music but I'm a collector of many genres. I particularly love Jazz, rock, soul, and anything from 1971.

    I took a haitus from music for a year to study graphic design. It was a cooling off period and now I'm back to it.

    Right now I'm making minimal, synth beats for the jerks, on my MPC3k and my TR-808. It's pretty fun and will hopefully lead me into pop/hip-hop production. (hate me yet?)

    Thanks for having me. Any questions?

    Hi I'm Joe. I'm an alcoholic and an addict.

    Age 39. Born and proudly raised in northern NJ. Been calling Houston, TX home for the past 5 or so years.

    Married, Three kids. I have what I often call a 21st century family - My 17yr old son (kyle) is from my wifes first marraige which makes him my stepson. My middles guy is 9 (spencer) and was made the old fashioned way. My youngest is four (sydney) and she was adopted from china. That's my family. I like it. If you don't then go fuck yourself.

    I managed to make a living in the business of music for several years in the 80's and 90's and then decided that working 80+ hours a week for sometimes no money did not really align with my goals of having a family of my own so after fixing the piece of shit computer that flying faders ran on for the 70th time, I finally figured out that there is money in IT and moved over to that side of the world in 1995 and have not looked back.

    I currently work in sales for IT systems management and security event management software company and though I miss the music business terribly, I'm quite happy. I still do sessions on the side for friends and such. I have a small HD2 rig at home that I mix and do overdubs on though I prefer to try to work in local commercial studios as often as possible.

    To keep my creative juices flowing, I do stupid shit like put 22000 christmas lights on my house and synch the lights to music.

    Politically, I am a man without a party. I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative. I firmly believe in term limits for all elected offices. I believe in everyones right to free choice. Everyone who is of sound mind and body should be allowed to own a firearm however, no normal person needs to own an assault rifle and if you're pissed about having to wait 7 days to buy a gun then you probably shouldn't have one.
    These are my views. If you don't agree with them then you should be thankful that we live in a country where differeing opinions are allowed and can be debated peacefully. If you have a problem with my views and are not open to a peaceful debate then go fuck yourself. I am fully prepared to legally execute my 2nd ammendment rights.

    My musical tastes are varied. I was born and raised on 70's rock and roll ala - stones, Zeppelin, Aerosmith, kiss, etc... I enjoy jazz, some pop and modern country. I fully respect classical though rarely listen to it. I have no respect for "artists" that are fully created by technology via things like ottotune, punching every friggin note in a solo, having to bring in session players because you can't hack it, etc...

    ok, ok, I'm just Wen.


    We were jamming in the basement when A&R guy from Arista mistakenly knocked on the door looking for this other motherfucker. He liked what he heard and...

    Still don't know if it was blessing or curse.

    What happened next was pretty much outlined in the Mixerman Diaries.

    (minus all the money)

    That's how I ended up here...

    (in the womb wishing I knew then what I don't know now).

    Reading that shits was all deja vu.

    I've participated in a couple of CaPEs, don't post much, but I hang here a lot...reading... listening....learning.....


    ...still trying to write a song that makes somebody feel something.

    I think I may have given "my story" on another post but...

    Age: 33
    Birthplace: Grand Rapids, MI
    Sex: Yes, loads wife and I had 3 kids in three years.
    Education: Institute of Audio Research, New York University
    Current Location: New York City
    Favorite Hockey Team: Red Wings
    Favorite Basketball Team: Pistons
    Favorite Football Team: Whoever lost last years Superbowl

    Both my parents are musicians. I've been in and/or around recording studios my entire life. My father was instrumental in the DeBarge sound, he was the families music teacher and became the Music Director for live performances for about 10 years.

    As a result of my father's profession, I was always around a lot of musicians. And ended up becoming an extra pair of hands on a number of commercial albums. My first recording gig was when I was 9 years old for my father when he conducted the Grand Rapids Symphony. And I was told it is still in use to date.

    I'm currently an aspiring mix engineer working from a project studio on a assortment of projects. I'm doing everything from freelance recording to house mixes for my families studio in Atlanta, GA. I've written and composed music for TV and media productions. I've even tried my hand at being a recording artist... that is always fun.

    A Bit More:
    I'm a pretty decent guy, believe in God and try to do good and stay away from evil. I can't stand super glossy tones... I like distortion, grit and saturation. Perhaps that is an oxymoron (decent guy and God + distortion, grit and saturation).

    I also think - despite popular opinion among industry whores - that music is improving from the lull which occurred within the last ten years. I'd like to be a part of the new wave of talented people stepping out from among the trees.

    Eh, why not.

    My name is Ben, I'm 22 and I was born and raised here in New Mexico (yes its part of the US). Been playing music since I was 10 or so, usual garage band shit through high school, blah blah. Interned at the most expensive studio in NM for 3 years in high school. I've been going to music school (concentration on "recording arts", though I learned the most from this website) and I'm about to graduate this May. Some weird shit went down with my school financially and now I'm finishing at a different school that doesn't have a recording studio, which sucks because I used to make $$ freelancing a bit out of the school studio which had a neotek, a tape machine, and some good mics. It was pretty nice.

    Now I'm running an M-box and a DIGI 001 with some ancient M-audio bx-8s and a pair of AT4033a's, but I just ordered a Duet. I also made an attempt at treating my room with rigid mineral wool and some home-made quadratic residue diffusers, which have helped tremendously. Gear really is the LEAST important aspect of "record" making, which is why I love The Womb. It keeps sounding better no matter what I'm using, because I'm learning to take time, listen and to create an okay environment for doing that. Regardless, I would love a nice room and some nice monitors, among other things.

    Basically I owe everyone here a tremendous amount of gratitude, which is the main reason why I'm posting this.

    Much thanks to the creators and contributors of this fine, fine website. I'll buy you a beer or roll you a fatty anytime.
