  • Hey there! I'm SHADOWMASTΞR from Newfoundland!

    Hello all, I'm Shadowmaster, and I am a Canadian music weirdo that likes to talk to people on the internet. I'd like to thank sevenism for referring me here!

    How did I discover ambient music?

    I had a mild experience with
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor when I was in grade 9, and it totally changed my ideas about music.

    I truely discovered ambient music when I started university. I started hosting college radio shows on electronic music and as I looked for content, I stumbled upon many of the artists that were my gateway into ambient. Artists like Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, DJ Shadow, and Brian Eno. I has been an avid electronic music listener since my early teens, and when I first heard GY!BE in grade nine, years before university, it changed my perception of music. These days I take additional inspiration from Experimental Products, Gray, Com Truise, and the hordes of vaporwave/synthwave/vaportrap I hear online from time to time.

    Have I found my sound?

    Hard question. I used to want to be Boards of Canada. I guess that's not too uncommon. In a sense there's a lot about their atmospheres I absorbed, much like Brian Eno's work. Since the emergence of vaporwave and most modern rap music, and my growing interest in dark ambient and sound art, I have less and less of an ability to stick to one "sound". Some songs are just nice sounding little electronic tunes that feel good, other times it's a six minute drone piece littered with samples of vivid sounds. It's all fun, and just as rewarding.

    My gear:

    • Korg Minilogue
    • Microkorg
    • Ableton Push (Ableton Live 9 Suite)
    • Volca Bass
    • Volca Beats
    • AKAI MPX16
    • Casio CTK-450
    • Yamaha DD-35
    • ​Numark Mixdeck
    • BOSS ME-25 FX Pedal
    • ART USB Mix



    My most valued tools?

    Every since I finally got my minilogue in late July, it's been my favorite machine. I often sync my volcas to the minilogue and play forever. I used to just throw my recodings together in ableton or garageband until I bought Ableton! Using an actual DAW really changed a lot for me!

    What do I do besides music?

    I studied computer programming in college, and graduated in June. These days, I am a computer technician. I try to spend all my time off with friends and family, and any alone time I get tends to go towards music or other creative projects. I love filming! I am definitely a novice at both filming and editing, but it's really fun to learn new things.

        Hi, nice to have you here.

        Just listened to most of your Minimums & Maximums LP, good stuff. I think the variety of styles appeals to my short attention span, a bit like Enos 'Music for Films'.
        Latest release: never to be repeated

          Thanks for the warm welcome! Glad you're enjoying "seamist"! Me and sevenism are putting finishing touches now on an album called "eightyseven"! I hope you enjoy it

          Glad you liked Minimums & Maximums! I intend on doing more volumes in the future! As I've already said, be sure to check out "eightyseven" by me and sevenism when it's released! We've been having a lot of fun with the project.

          I am currently working on a chillout project, sort of a sequel to my first album, "Living In A Post-Nuclear World". Feel free to check out the teasers I've released so far here: https://soundcloud.com/shadowmaster-...hnique-teasers

            Welcome SHADOWMASTER, Ambient Online awaits you! (Sorry, couldn't resist, that sentence just rings, huh! saying things like that reminds me of Ghostbusters. again, sorry...maybe too much coffee...)

            I look forward to listening to your music. I have a Minilogue too, and it's now my favorite hardware tool. I often pair it with a Korg SDD-3000 delay. And it is finding it's way into more of my tracks.

            Cheers!
