It's me. Andrew Hong. No one else. I don't take myself too seriously, and neither should you. I don't care what you think about my "music", nor should you indulge me with what you think works/doesn't work.
My process is simple. I record myself playing the guitar with any number of recording devices, mix it on the computer because I have a lot of time to waste, and occasional create sounds that could be construed as music. I own a semi-hallow electric jazz guitar and have it connected to a fuzz pedal, a Line-6 DL4 modeler to loop, and a wah pedal.
I am a self-indulgent, improvisational jam-man that occasionally gets lucky with sounds that fit well together. And while I don't take myself seriously as an "artist", I DO take music itself, very seriously. Music is a language - it's a universal language - our way to see "god" - a conduit to the things we can't explain in our universe.
Astronomers have further claimed to have heard a black hole singing - a continuous song for the past two billion years - to the tone of B flat 57 octaves lower than middle C. Thus, music has existed forever. It's something to think about - the notes, the sounds, the ambiance that come out of amps, from hollowed out pieces of wood and so-called "instruments" have existed for as long as the cosmos.
It's just something to think about this the next time you sit down and jam out on your guitar :: are you really playing the instrument, or is the instrument playing you? The music has always existed, is the universe using you as a conduit?
I picked up a guitar half way through my junior year of university. I've been involved in musical ear-ination ever sense.
