I have had an interest in computers my entire life. Throughout gradeschool, I spent a lot of time creating what is referred to as “pixel art” with MS Paint. Mostly small sprite objects for use in online games. This is when I initially began developing my graphical design interests and skills, as well as sense of space and style for level design.

 

Two major influences in starting my interest in music and sound design was Final Fantasy VII (Squaresoft RPG released in 1997) and the band Opeth’s album “Still Life” released in 2000. Both of these musical works I would consider pure genius and huge influences on my musical future.Brandon Large

I have an associates degree in interactive digital media and plan to achieve the bachelor’s degree in the future. Currently, I am focusing on my various musical projects. You can find links to them on the side-bar. I am almost always interested in collaboration with others for new material depending on the quality and scope of the project.

Also, I wrote reviews for an online e-zine known as Maelstrom. I’ve written over 300 reviews between Maelstrom, and also the UltimateMetal e-zine.
