Name: Cyric Naseth
From: Pittsburgh, PA
"At the age of 7, I first heard a live symphony
perform the themes to both "Back To The Future" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
I was in absolute awe of the power of the music being performed live, and
the rush it gave me to not only hear it, but to feel it. That was the first
time I recall music affecting me emotionally, and ever since, I have felt
an urgent need to not only feel it again, but to find a way to pass that feeling
along to others. This is what I know of addiction.
As the years passed and I got older, I listened to as much music as possible
and I tried to share my enthusiasm with others. Listening was never enough,
it was only a gateway to more involvement. For the same reason that we can't
just watch a magic trick without wondering "How is that possible?", I could
no longer listen to music without wanting to get my hands dirty. I needed
to make music somehow, bad music if that was all I could manage, but preferably
music that had the power to inspire emotions in others. So that's what I try
to do. I strive to make music in the image of that symphony that had such
an effect on me so many years ago. I want people to crave the feeling I felt
that first time, I want them to need it, and I want to be the one to give
them their fix."
