Ingenious Mastermind is currently a one man band. Chris Musick (me) does everything. This includes dynamic vocals, ear-lusting guitars, smooth bass, jammin' drums, kinky keyboard, recording, mixing, producing, and so forth. I have been into playing guitar since I was a wee lad at 12 years old, then started recording and mixing my own music when I was about 19. Not only is Musick my name, but it's my biggest passion...aside from chocolate Oereos. I solely do it for the love of doing it, not to try and get rich and famous. But if that happens, then it happens. It's something that has always been and always will be a part of me. It's just who I am. And I am KAZAAM! (yeah right, I WISH)
I am constantly writing and recording new songs as the inspiration hits. I don't typically sit down and say "Ok, time to write a song". Instead, I wait for the inspiration to hit and come to me on it's own. Some of the best music I've written has come to me at random times. I'll be lying in bed ready to fall asleep and an idea pops into my head. I then get up to record it right away so that nothing is lost. In fact, I'll even go to my home studio room and start writing and recording right then and there. The next thing I know, it's six in the morning and I have stayed up all night working on a new song.
My focus for the longest was mostly rock music, but being in the music production program has really opened the door to writing material of all different genres. I've created rock, classical, reggae, instrumentals, acapella, and whatever else my brain can come up with. I also sing, play guitar\piano\bass\drums, and whatever other instrument I can get my hands on. I'm definitely more of a play by ear type of artist.
I also really enjoy the whole audio engineering aspect of music production. I will spend hours recording and mixing the music to get the best sound. Becoming a music producer would be the ultimate career choice for me, as I will get to help with all aspects of the music creation process.
