However, as I got older, it seemed every band mate I ever had quit playing and go on to become engineers (why?) This thing I had, with music, seemed less and less realistic and I eventually did the same as them. I graduated with an electrical engineering degree and worked for a few years in various IT companies. But I wasn't happy, like not at all.
In 2005 I bought my first piece of digital music hardware. An EDIROL UA-25 USB Audio capture card. That came with a free version of the famed Cakewalk DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) which for the first time in my life, meant that, using only my laptop, I could record and mix multiple tracks together and create songs on my own. No need for band mates (Which were hard to come across around where I'm from). Later, I discovered Youtube, then Bandcamp and more recently, Spotify. I quit my job as an engineer and used cash I had saved up to work on songs and art and Youtube videos. And here we are!
