I was in band for nine years (4th – 12th grade). I played alto saxophone. I first started listening to the radio, against my parents wishes, in 6th grade. I basically only listened to Radio Disney at the time and they liked to play Lonely all the time. I’ve been around music for a while but whenever someone asks, “What do you listen to?” I always respond with, “Stuff”.
I did listen to the radio but I feel like I didn’t really listen to music. I didn’t go out and find what I liked. I only really knew what came on the radio and even then I didn’t know the names of songs or artists or anything. I had to do a small project in like 7th grade where I would choose a song that described me or whatever. I chose Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet. It was on the Madden 2004 soundtrack and I played that game a shit ton. I didn’t really particularly like the song I just didn’t know what else to pick.
I started listening to music when I first got a smartphone back in the end of 2010 (Zune Pass but I never owned a Zune). I think it mainly consisted of video game music and Stronger by Kanye West. I randomly discovered Anamanaguchi after listening to the Bit.Trip Runner soundtrack. I really liked one of the songs (Mermaid) and I decided to check out what else they released. I now own all their songs.
I’ve started to branch out a bit now. I’ve picked up a couple songs from watching Twitch streams and from friends. Hear a random song, try to find out what it’s called, remember to look it up when I’m at a computer. I also really enjoy mixes. My favorite is Black Sunrise by Tycho but I’ve also been listening to a mix Giraffage just put out. So clearly following the natural order of things I should make a mix.
So I made a mix. I first picked out what song I wanted first, I then picked out a bunch of other songs. Then I put them together…in some kind of order. Then I picked what I wanted last. It's called I Tried To Make A Mix. Yeah.
