TL;DR Really.. Press play before You decide to show more. I went Creative writing all over this Bio. Here on MusiCoin you will find a wide array of these varied attempts, but mostly just the good shit.

This is music I released under the name "Neon Moth." A song like "Another Atom I Crush," the sequel to "Atomic Rush," is it's own monster. Unwieldy and Raw, a true homage to Aphex Twin's "Come To Daddy" or a Nine Inch Nails track like "Wish" or "March of the Pigs." Or the track Architexture, a tune I believe was my best attempt at creating a viable candidate for a new genre of EDM, Psybahton! Another of my top 3 is the track "Drumpeggiator." The track is based around allocating drum hits to various arpeggiators on a swing rhythm. I think it sounds like Mecha-Tool which is Hella Cool :)

I grew up in the 90's, watching the decrepit, wasting platform known as MTV. In the dying throws of MTV, sometimes they had Television shows, with music! Strange bands that you couldn't hear on the local rock station. This is where I heard one of my first Electronic inspirations. The music was dark and climactic, the video was frightening and memorable. Thank you, Aphex Twin. The Music video for "Come to Daddy" was like a miniature horror film, complete with a "Nosferatu" style monster.

Two albums that I remember being an inspiration are Nine Inch Nails' album "Broken" and the Lords of Acid's "Voodoo You." Broken is one of the CD's that was officially mine, thanks to Eric for the best birthday present an Eight year old could get. Along with The Lords of Acid, friends would "leave" CD's around, so I got to listen to Prodigy's "Fat of the Land" a lot. It was around this time that I "wrote a song" with a neighbor, thanks go to Steve and his dad for letting two Ten year olds use his guitar. It was my idea to add the Gun sounds for our song "In the War," it was a plastic toy machine gun... that's fuckin' production pal.

I didn't catch back up to genre specific Electronic music until I was 16 or so. One of the first dudes I knew who was producing beats and EDM regularly was Brett. Cheers to him for tearing down some of the barriers between myself and EDM production, and for helping me appreciate EDM as a Technical Musical Art form. I leaned towards Big Beat producers like The Crystal Method and The Chemical Brothers. I was also introduced to Trip-hop in the form of AIM's "Cold Water Music." Thanks to Kevin for a lot of various EDM influences. Dj Baby Anne, Dj Enrie, AK1200 to name a couple that I can remember in the distorted visions and memories muddled in the smoke machine of my mind.

It was during this time that I first became acquainted with Acid... Pro, an old DAW that was pirated in some of the dankest days of THE INTERNET! Oh, and Acid. Like the drug Acid... I did some of that too. Out of that came some abysmal music. I used, or overused, a sample of Homer Simpson. I mean, I beat multiple dead horses, dead donkeys, some dead geese, and other various dead types of dead livestock.

On the CD, ancient and crusted, now lost in The Grey, on it is written... "Ian's Hell House." This CD also featured a reverse effect over the word "nyatais," because what kid doesn't want their recordings to have a little satan on em'. I was more heavily involved in writing songs and playing guitar in Rock bands, as well as playing bass in a Metal band. I also spit some hot fire over a mixtape during this time. HOT FUCKING FIRE.

Destined to be a Genre whore, I came upon EDM production again. I know, I'm not sorry. IT IS WRITTNE, shit... After a number of HOT HOT dance parties, I was inspired to pursue EDM production. Two gentlemen, C and Mr. Capacitor led me into my next EDM foray. The, ... Science of, mass gyration, and the uhh super secret CIA, NBA, NASA, FASA, SKYNET, XBOX1X, XRP, MS-13, XXR, Junglecat, government psy-op. With Face Melting Mood Machines and the false one, whose true name is not "Sinbad," he IS who shall be called, Shazaam.

Just kidding... I did it because it was totally fun. Composition, Notation, Production, and Tone. Just a few things that my experiments have taught me. I could also mention the countless hours of fun annoying my friends with every other un-mixed copy I rendered. I continued to work on experimental EDM for about 5 years, ending in 2014. With the dismantling of a drug addled life style, so to came the dismantling of this trigger mechanism.

Cheers. (I got the Moth image from the user diapicard, on the website pixabay.com)

This track used what I would describe as a Wood Block, maybe a Marimba. I ran it through an arpeggiator on different settings and took out the best melodies to compose, also adding in some parts I composed myself. The Drums are an 808 kit or a 909 kit, and the precise velocity-roll drums were taught to me by a mentor of mine. The Bass is Ableton Live's stock four-channel Synthesizer, using a constant sub-bass with a couple of different channel switches and frequency noodling. The Vocals are a sample I grabbed from a Thom Yorke and Bjork song titled "I've Seen It All." The sound of an inhale is a very unique sound and can mimic the sound of a reverse cymbal. Then I reversed the sample and stretched different vowels and consonance to give it a bit of a bounce and make it sound a bit foreign to everyone. Leaving in a bit of the original sample was more to say thank you to Bjork and Thom Yorke for creating the original track that inspired the ambiance of my track.

Now, for something Completely Different. A Five song Rock demo that I recorded after one of my bands disbanded. The first track is entitled "Friends," originally titled "Internet Friends," the main theme is in the comparison between Social Media and Drug Addiction. The next song plays with the idea of enlisting in the Drug War and the damages related. The next track was written to fill the void before "Twenty First Graders," a song written during the aftermath of the Sandyhook shootings. A few ideas came to mind when re-creating the friction felt with "Gun Control." Many various perspectives with the greatest Truths towards the middle with lines like, "I Know you're Paranoid." The final track is titled "Social Moth and The Fluorescent Fireflies," a poem I wrote that inspired the name "Neon Moth." I wrote this song in the persona of a Festival Rock band, complete with Two Chorus' and repetition to fill time at a Three hour live show :)

Using two samples I ripped from youtube, I attempted to create a narrative involving an individual being confronted by a police officer and the aftermath of two scenarios. This was also one of the songs that would come to give me one of the sounds I would continue to use. The high pitched, Squeeking tones, are meant to trigger an area of your brain that responds to sirens. Comfortable music terrifies me, why do you let your music lie to you? Uncomfortable Confrontation is a Blade to a whet stone. Cheers.

The first attempt at Psybahton. A genre I dreamed up that combines galloping Psy-Trance synths over a 110 bpm Latin House beat, sometimes referred to as Moombahton. I would later work on tracks like "Another Atom I Crush" which accented the One at 110 bpm. Leaving only the accent on the One, I theoretically wanted to create a reverse of Dubstep, check that song out for another original genre. Cheers.

Dedicated to Bill Hicks. This is what it sounds like if you refuse to use pre-made samples, and require yourself to use, ew... **stock vst's**. I'm poor and I've tried to avoid stealing samples and vst's. Most of the time, aside from a few "moombaton" drum loops, all of my music was created in stock ableton live 8 from the ground up. Most of my tracks are simplified jams, re-arranged and edited to sound like something a band could play... with two drummers.

When I put this out, Dubstep mania had taken over. Over compressed and cookie cutter architecture plagued a once eccentric sub-genre of EDM. I knew Dubstep to be flowing and open with the emphasis on the syncopation of drum patterns. I tried to juxtapose these ideas and ultimately ask the question, "Why?"

When I started this track I didn't intend for it to be interpreted the way I interpret it now. It started with using a 7/8 loop over a 4/4 loop and having the two loops eventually meet. After I got some of the melodies and instruments put together, I saw the potential to make a child-like daydream and turn it into a brief, dissonant nightmare. When I could step back and detach, I would listen to it and try to explain where the music put me. I kept feeling like I was playing various water levels from classic Super Mario Brothers games.

The outro sample is from the song Folklore, from the album Heritage by Opeth. My songs "bass lines" were initially composed around the Opeth sample and then used to create the body of the jam.

This is a track that I made around Halloween of 2013. It reminds me of the 24 hour news cycle that consistently propagates the emotion of fear. I can't stop people from watching horror movies, I can't stop people from watching the news. At least a horror film is outwardly advertising a product that triggers the synapse in your brain that produces adrenaline, endorphins, and serotonin. These reactions are also can be related to many addictive substances, people are addicted to the news like people are addicted to alcohol.

This is one of the first tracks that I made. At the time synthetic marijuana was sold in shops and gas stations everywhere. One of the brands was called "Atomic Rush." I do not endorse the use of synthetic marijuana. This track is an example of what synthetic marijuana can do to your brain. If your not careful kids, you might end up a little weird, just like me.

~WARNING: This track is NINE minutes. Press Next if you don't have the time.~ This is an old, experimental tune. I've never released this due to it's repetitive nature and Odd instruments. Honestly, it matches the mood of the next song on my page, the Shadowrun intro. If you are willing to listen to music that isn't comfortable, give this tune a shot.

The inspiration to upload this came from "Neon Insect," who makes awesome soundtracks. Search Music Coin for Neon Insect and you will not be disappointed. Go tip him instead of me... I'm too old for this shit. I made this Shadowrun Snes remake to perfectly match the intro cinematic on the Snes cartridge (there may be a vid of that somewhere, wink wink). The cheesy vibratos on the "violin" are meant to sound like that. Listen to the Original to hear what I mean. Cheers.
