Sal Qadir – Student Introduction

Hello All,

My name is Sal and I am currently a senior in AEM minoring in Music. I hail from the Atlantic City area of New Jersey. I have taught myself guitar in the past and was a violinist for my high school’s orchestra. However, I never achieved an advanced level of proficiency in either of these instruments. More recently, I have been very interested in electronic music production, and I began this journey with Fruity Loops during my sophomore year of college before migrating to Ableton by my junior year. I took this class because I want to continue to improve my knowledge of electronic music production while learning from the unique backgrounds of my fellow peers. I look forward to hearing what is sure to be a wide variety of compositions in the coming months.

Introduction: Daniel Gil

Hi everyone, my name is Daniel Gil. I’m a fourth-year Economics major and I currently live in Richmond, VA. My musical ability includes playing the guitar, piano, and clarinet. I also DJ at local events and venues around Ithaca (my DJ name is erbaKAI, thus explaining my username which probably seemed pretty strange to anyone reading this). My most recent performance was also my biggest so far, playing in front of a crowd of 2,000 for a freshmen orientation event. I decided to take this class because I had previously dabbled in producing music via computer but never got into it as much as I wanted to – I thought this class would be a good opportunity to immerse myself more in production and perhaps ultimately pursue it as a personal hobby. I do not currently have a creative agenda, but this is not surprising, as I tend to achieve inspiration pretty last-minute (nice way of saying I’m a huge procrastinator). Lastly, I would absolutely be interested in collaborating with others.

Hi, I’m Manuela Rios

Hey all, I’m Manuela Rios and I am a senior in Information Science (time flies). I started drumming when I was eight years old (still play!), and I have experimented with gamelan, marching instruments, experimental drumming, and drum set. I’ve performed in marching fields, in indoor gyms, in orchestra settings, and on the floor (gamelan).

At Cornell, I’ve taken three other music courses, but I am very excited for this class because I will be able to combine my interest in music with my interest in tech. I don’t have a particular creative agenda, but I am definitely interested in working with others!

I’m Phil Fargo and this is me!

Hey all. My name is Phil Fargo and I have a pretty big musical background from a performance point of view, but not from the lens of production. I am a classically trained vocalist but sing in all styles (for fun). My biggest musical accomplishment was soloing at Carnegie Hall last semester. I play piano, guitar, and trumpet. I wanted to take this class because I think that music is fun, and therefore composing music must be like composing fun right? I have experience writing A Capella arrangements, but it’s time to try something a little more original and a little less vocal focused. I am planning on trying my hand making some chillstep music, some “garage band” type tracks, and some stuff that I haven’t even thought of yet. I hope that I will get to work with others in the class to have fun making music.
