Entry #1

The Beginning

2014-01-09 21:00:26 by AudioDriver

Hello Newgrounds community!

I'm AudioDriver, a music producer from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I am brand new to this website, I've seen it around before here and there but I've never known it's full awesomeness until recently. I just bought Castle Crashers from Steam on Boxing Day and instantly fell in love with everything about it, especially the music, and when I found out it was crowdsourced from Newgrounds, I knew I had to get a slice of this action.

So here I am...

I feel like before I go any further, I should share some of my musical background with anyone reading this (probably no one). I started mucking around on Garage Band when I was in year 6. This urge to dabble in music production was sparked by the magical, musical wonder known as Hardsyle. Basically everything I learned about music from there had its foundations in Hardstyle, so excuse me if I slap a filthy reverse bass kick in an orchestral track... old habits. Skip ahead about 4 years and I sign up with AudioDraft to enter contests, earn some money and stretch my production skills. Many contests later, I do a Cert III at Boxhill TAFE run by a games company in Queensland called Lightmare Studios who offered me to make the music for their new game Infinity Wars after listening to my previous work. Ever since then I have loved making music for games. I should mention that when I was a kid, I used to play games such as Donkey Kong Counrtry 2: Diddy Kong's Quest, Pilotwings, Mario, Crash Bandicoot, Pokemon, Metal Arms, Earthbound etc. so when making music for games, I naturally look to these for inspiration.

So that was my little introduction rant, if you actually read it, congratulations.

I'm already excited to get started on here and start exploring. The journey has begun.
