- About ~Akiko
- Well, where to start about myself. On the musical side, I've always listened to trance. One day, I went to my friends house and his older brother made me a CD, which I still have. That was over 10 years ago, I was around 7-8 years old. I heard the music and I was like this stuff is really awesome, I want to make it one day. I asked him what it was and he said "Trance". Ever since then I've listened to it and only recently been able to finally start producing it. My first attempt with making music was about 2 years ago when I had planned on being an artist (not musical but one that draws). I would spend hours drawing everyday and I eventually just decided it wasn't going to work out. I have some fairly decent artistic skills that now lay unused but they are still there. Anyways, it took me about a month on learning how to even make heads or tails of FL Studio and I watched many tutorial videos. I still have the very first song I made. I'm not sure if it can be considered a song but we will leave it at that. Haha.
Looking at my uploaded videos is like looking at my past drawings. Seeing everything I have done and always wanting to try for better. Now I have more than 29 songs to date but many I just don't consider them upload material because they are terrible!
If you haven't noticed in my songs, I always aim for melodies that make you imagine things, fantasies. I touch upon myself in that way with my music. Many songs make me think deeply about myself. I make it with the current emotions I'm feeling at the time of the song. I may not have any really sad or really happy songs, but the mood in the song should be understandable if you take care to listen to everything closely. Most of my songs focus on effects and sounds built up around chord progressions with a melody ontop, they aren't as upbeat as some people would think.
On the other hand, my life is spent around my computer making music. My classes are ridiculously easy and it leaves me time to sit for hours on FL Studio and get things done.
I'm very sociable with others and I have many friends in life and on the internet. I'm a little strange in a way that somewhere deep down inside, I am a fox. Call me weird or scary but I could see myself with a tail or ears in an instant. Many of my songs make me think of that. It will never happen but it's always a nice dream to look forward too! Getting back to my drawings, they also tie in with this strangeness of tails and ears and foxes, sometimes wolves too. I love the mountains and I love the snow. I live in a place where there are mountains but I have to drive to get the ones with snow. I always think of my perfect dream, live in the mountains with one special person and enjoy the surroundings. I could also have my tail and ears too! Maybe that special person can enjoy that as well. I know there is someone out there who would gladly agree to such a strange thing. I will find you or maybe even you will find me. I could go on and on about this strange connection with nature I have. We will stop here and just say it somehow ties into to motivating me to keep making songs, to keep my imagination running on with all these strange fantasies I have.
