This was a pleasant surprise 🙂
At this Infocomm123 article, their resident blogger Daniel Tsou listed me as one of the three online Creative Commons musicians he’s come across:
He calls me:
A local musician who writes great music, some of which are even used on local podcasts such as Simply Geek!
It’ll be super cool if he wrote that I’m a librarian in there, somewhere. But I’m not complaining! Just very tickled to be called a musician.
I couldn’t help but think about how the dots connected.
Daniel is one of the guys over at Tech65. Other than one or two emails and one Skype chat, I don’t really know him (in case any one wonders if I prodded him to be included in the article, heh).
I didn’t meet Daniel directly. It was through one of his Tech65 counterpart, Chinmay, who attended this GarageBand meetup in 2008 that I organised. Chinmay said he was recording podcast episodes for their online show.
Think it was about a year later when Chinmay emailed to let me know he was using my CC-licensed track for their podcasts. Which later led to them inviting me on episode 12 of Simply Geek. That’s when I first conversed with Daniel. Which led to the Infocomm123 article.
That’s how the dots connected.
