Electric Mouse is in the House!


Hey, hi, hello, everyone! I’m Sparkplug. Writing and music are my passions, so I was incredibly delighted to find myself accepted into the AI gang. They seem a little crazy so I’m sure I’ll fit right in. 😉

My first real introduction to anime (rather than occasional glimpses of the Toonami classics) was Tokyo Mew Mew, which still holds a special place in my heart despite all the other series I’ve fallen in love with over the years. I swing towards fantasy and action generally, but I’ll certainly check out any recommendation I’m given–which is unfortunate because I now have an ever-growing list of series that I intend to watch, although who knows if I’ll ever find the time to do so.

Music has been a part of my life since I was five years old, when I started taking piano lessons. From there I progressed to flute and eventually alto saxophone, which introduced me to the exciting and sometimes overwhelming world of jazz. Besides performance, I also have some music history and theory under my belt, so my analysis might get a bit technical at times, but on the whole I really just enjoy playing and listening to music. Recently I’ve started transcribing and composing as well! My tastes span pretty much every genre in some capacity (except country/bluegrass) but a few all-time favourite artists would have to include the Police, Imogen Heap, Escala, and Joe Hisaishi.

One genre that’s pretty high on my list is video game music. I’m more of a casual gamer than a hardcore one, but there are certain titles I’m fully invested in (Pokemon, Zelda, and Professor Layton to name a few). I’ve gotten into PC gaming a little bit, but my main experience is with consoles, both handheld and not.

A few of my other hobbies are reading and costume making, but I could go on about those for a while, and I know I ought to keep this brief since it’s just an introduction post and not a personal ramble blog. So thanks again to Zzero and the gang for welcoming me into your midst, and I hope my forthcoming reviews will make it worthwhile!

    Welcome to Anime Instrumentality!
    Music theory is never a bad thing… and it does go hand-in-hand with video game theory. I’ll be looking forward to some game music ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ

    Welcome and also, I look forward to your future music reviews…

    Also, I played music since I was young too. I learned how to play the Piano until the end of High School, Violin in third grade and Clarinet during 4th grade until 12th grade… So if you are wondering, I have musical experience although my strengths are more orientated towards technology.
