Indie Musician Spotlight: Lanes

This week’s topic at the Teen Fiction Cafe is Music and I thought it would be fun to learn more about a style of music that's all the rage, but some of us might not know very much about, including me. I've asked my friend Lanes, and outstanding artist and totally nice guy, to tell us more about Electronic Music and his life as an indie artist. Enjoy!

How would you describe your music style to someone who’s not familiar with it?
What I write is officially called Electronic Music. It's a huge genre that have several subgenres like Techno, House, Trance, Breakbeat, Jungle/Drum'n'Bass, Industrial, etc which, in turn, have their own sub-subgenres and its more than 50 of those.My music style is an experimental attempt to recreate some kind of a sonic adventure I invest quite a great deal of emotions in it and what I do is I try to express them thru certain combinations of sounds that if I were a listener would make me feel a certain way or even place me in a certain emtional state.

What kind of training do you have?
I'm self-taught. My older sister is a professional pianist, she is the one who sparked my interest in composing music. That's actually pretty strange given all the time I was brutally exposed to listening to her playing the most boring music on Earth.

What is a typical day like in the life of Lanes?
Mornings are usually uninspiring so I spend them on posting updates, answering messages and bothering other people. Afternoons are more fun so i either work on my existing songs trying to make them sound nicer or surf the Net looking for more places to post my music on. And evenings are usually for creating something out of nothing.

What is your all-time favorite track?
'Porcelain' by Moby

Where can we listen to your music?
My page on myspace (www.myspace.com/lanespro) has full versions of my latest tracksI also have samples from my songs on my official website (www.lanespro.com) and a whole bunch of other music sites like SoundClick (www.soundclick.com/lanes), PureVolume (www.purevolume.com/lanes), iSound (www.isound.com/lanes), etc etcMy CDs are sold by CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com/cd/lanes) and my downloads are on iTunes, Rhapsody, Beats Digital, Indiepad, etc. My page on myspace and my website have all the links to the stores.

Thank you, Lanes!
