My name is Mike. Schaffino is a solo project, waiting to be a band. So if anyone's interested let me know.
Band/artist history
I was born in 1988 and started playing drums when I was four. I started piano when i was nine. And i started guitar two years ago. And a recent spark of interest in recording/producing arrived about a year or so ago. I started recording and coming up with ideas for some solo stuff about 1 or 2 years ago. My friend steve (sick bass player) had a korg 12 track recorder that we used to leave at my house because we were in a band. I fucked around and started making songs. Feedback-esque, 111, dwarf, and to break the ice are my first songs i recorded. I now have protools/powerbook. I'm just in an infinite search for people to play with. I'm getting bored writing myself and playing music by myself.
