Biography

Hi!
I have been busy of late, but I'm still around!
I am recording a 'proper' album at the moment with a few friends from Icomp. and it is taking forever.

What with me running a business and all that, time sure is scarce.
I hope to upload a few demo versions of the tracks that will appear on the album real soon. They will be works in progress and I'm looking forward to hearing some feedback from you guys.
A couple of tracks from my music list have been re-recorded and re-worked into new songs and the difference is amazing.
I will keep ya posted.
Colin- AKA BAMPOT



I moved to Australia in 1999.
I sold a huge amount of my music gear before leaving Scotland apart from two guitars and an amp.
I tried out with a few bands, but never really clicked with them on a musical level.

I discovered Apple Mac!
I played around with Garageband and thought it was kinda cute putting all these loops together and creating backing tracks for videos.
I then bought a good mi-di keyboard and started creating my own loops and putting half decent tracks together.
I bought tons of software instruments and then I got addicted to it!


I try and get a track together every month,but that usually turns into 2 months.
Now that I have my own business to run finding time to record is a bit limited.
That's actually a good thing because I have learned to take my time and try and get things sounding better.
I also have a habit of working on a track for a while and then leave it unfinished until the spark of inspiration brings it all together!

I have moved up to Logic, but I will always use Garageband as the main sketchpad as it is so damn good for those of us that just want to lay something down quick while the vibe is there

I record mostly instrumental grooves with the intention of luring someone in and adding vocals.
This sure has paid of as I have had some great singers add their brilliant vocals to my music and take it to another level.
I am constantly blown away by some of the talent on this site.
My music seems to suit the female voice.
Rinca ,Chella Elaine ,theFace and Mystified have all worked with me and I am so happy with what they have done.

I have many musical influences,at the moment they are;

Cut-Copy- Ladyhawke -TV On The Radio- Keane-Bats For Lashes -Goldfrapp Doves -Nightmares On Wax- Aphex Twin -The Presets -Tegan and Sarah- Riosin Murphy -Morgan Page - Garbage and most chill-out and trance from Europe and many more and I would say they are what I aspire to be, musically

I am totally into this site,(as you can probably tell) and I hope it continues to bring out the best from everyone who gets involved.

I hope you enjoy my music...(the newest songs run from the top)........

Thanks for the support,

BAMPOT smiley
