Something I wanted to bring to your attention. Iceferno (me), the compiler of Beauty Trance also makes music. I thought I should highlight this as there’s more to me than just putting songs together. Though, that in itself holds some skill, regarding the atmospheres I try to achieve for each BT. But I do make my own songs. So, in typical bio-fashion, I shall explain below in italic:

Iceferno. The compiler, the producer

“I originally started in 2004 using the PlayStation game MTV Music Generator (known in Europe as “Music 2000”) making a few experimental loop tracks. This is what you could really consider “making beatz” since I barely deviated from pre-made sounds. My first song I called “Set The Night Alight!” which was about New Years Eve. It’s since been remade a few times, most proudly as the Lavender Remake in 2005. I went through a series of names back then from Inferno to the cheesy DJ Combustion. I think all teens like to put DJ in front of their name. But take it away and you have something much more impressive. It wasn’t until 2005 that I came up with a decent name. Iceferno. Iceferno references the contrast of elements (as I enjoy a variety of music) but also the song that perhaps most encouraged me to make music: Scooter – Sunrise (Ratty’s Inferno), a driving Trancer with a stormy build and a soothing break.

2005 was when I started using Fruity Loops. I bought Version 5 and did more of the same loop experimentation. I seemed to have the same sound for about 2 years until a then-contact properly introduced me to the usage of VSTs (Virtual Studio Technology). More experimenting followed but with it, a change in style and sound.

2009 was when I started to get really creative and pride emerged within various tracks like “Moonday”, “Zen”, “Lament” and several remixes as my aliases. And in 2010, I was finally able to successfully produce Chillout through video game remixes of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon and Legend Of The River King 2. Hopefully 2011 will be a continuation of 2010 with more frequent and improving compositions along the way.”
