My non-artistic name is Miguel Ángel Ajo, I live in Madrid and I was born in 1980. I have a degree in Computer Engineering, and I love Music, Software, and Electronics in general.
I liked music since I was a kid, my parents always had an interesting record for me to listen (I still keep them) from rock to clasical music, from pop to flamenco, but nothing could beat a record from Tangerine Dream, Andreas Vollenweider, Kraftwerk, Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd, Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, and many others.
Then the 90's came, with the Spanish electronic music scene playing in the radio (times of Chimo Bayo and friends hehe) :-), at that time, I had an Amiga 500 computer, and I loved to play with MOD music trackers, Sonix, and a Perfect Sound digitizer my father bought. I had little training in music (beyond basic school), and the things I made are luckily lost although I'd love to hear them now...
During my university degree I joined the IDIM association that had a very small studio, there I tried to learn playing guitar, but never got anywhere :-). I was also part of a demoscene group, (god's maze) but I wrote code, not music.
I never stopped listening music *all the time*, but it took me a long time to get back to it. In 2013 I got a digital piano and learned on my own. On 2015-2016 I started taking piano classes as an adult, and learning as much as I could about music theory. Then on my own, about music production, LogicX, modern audio synthetizers. By 2017 I started composing, andbBy the end of 2018 I told my wife (to her surprise): "I'm going to release an EP", and so I did.
