Feels a bit awkward writing about yourself but Iâ€™ll do my best
I’m like the “sixth band member” that doesn’t play any instrument. Or fifth if you like, now that we lack a drummer.
Basically I’m involved in everything except the musical part.
I ask those classical questions that are important to think about but rather easy to forget. It can get very philosophical at times. Or what do you say Marcus?
I constantly try to find how we can become even better at what we do, learning from both success and mistake. Sometimes we have a lot of ideas and want to do everything at the same time. In those cases I try to find what is most important at the moment and break it down into smaller steps that we more easily can get done.
When the band records I sometimes come along and just hang. But more often I try to stay out of the way. Nothing I can really contribute to there. Not my â€œcup of teaâ€, as the British say.
To be honest Iâ€™m more of a computer geek 8) I make and maintain websites, fix the more complicated stuff on MySpace, general computer support for the band, and so on
IT is my biggest passion. (although the band is on a close second place) And right now I study IT at the local university.
At gigs I come along and carry stuff, act as an extra driver, help out where possible. Sometimes I even sit at the soundboard. (Never knew before how much gear a whole band has!)
I know it’s not very normal for a band to have an extra member but I like it Itâ€™s a fun gang and we do a lot of stuff I wouldnâ€™t do otherwise. Like travelling to strange places for a gig and learning very nerdy things about sound.
If you play the guitar in a band you can easily say “I’m the guitarist”. But I really don’t have a clue what to call myself. Any suggestions? Does it even make any sense what I’m doing in the band
