Introducing Osteocephalic

My name is Apollo Lee, also known in some places as Osteocephalic. I’m a classically-trained musician, who has struggled to master modern music software. It comes down to a lack of focus and discipline, which I intend to solve here. I’ve been attempting to write electronic music for a number of years. I might as well succeed this year.

This blog is about music composition, primarily using software tools and inexpensive hardware. Much of the techniques I talk about here will be very basic as I get more and more familiar with software that I have, in some cases, dabbled with for years.

My goal in doing this is to gain in-depth insight and practice in creating compelling music with various software packages, alone and in concert. I’m kind of a bonehead at some of this stuff, but that’s not going to stop me. I have numerous problems with my setup or with the things I’m trying to do musically. As I work through these issues, I might as well tell the world about it. Hopefully, someone will find something useful here.

The software in my arsenal:

The hardware in my studio:

What do I know about creating good music with this software? Not much. But, I’m gonna learn. Join me!

I have used REASON more than any other sequencing software and I love it. I am driving the Porsche like a Pinto and I have still managed to make some good tracks with it.

What kind of music are you looking to make? House, Trance, etc.?

I’m primarily interested in house music, although I composed lots of different music in the past.

I like dance music best, but I also dig slow, sleepy ambient stuff.

What kind of music do you make?
