THE PERSON

Hello, everybody! I’m Shinatama (b. 1998), though I still go by William for the time being. I go by the moniker ‘Aquellex’ in all my online circles, and it also serves as my own music project of sorts. I’m based in the capital city of Australia. I specialise in writing music for low-level hardware. I’m a Game Boy connoisseur of sorts. ☺

I’ve been dabbling around music since I was a mere infant (2-years-old, in fact!), thanks to my father leaving me a Windows 98 PC with a SoundBlaster 16 clone card, a generic Yamaha XG-compatible keyboard and a low-level MIDI sequencer (Cakewalk Pro Audio 9). Let’s just say I still have a passion for electronic music to this very day. I’ve also been playing piano since I was 6 years old as well, and still continue to do so as a hobby and profession.

I got started with music properly with piano lessons and venturing into my father’s MIDI collection with the sequencer I had as a child (I also had fun writing my own arrangements of sorts, and still continue to do so), though I didn’t start writing my own music until I was 15 (late 2013). It feels amazing to finally realise your ideas 3 years later after starting composition. Nowadays, I teach and tune pianos for a living.

Here are my only music qualifications: AMEB Piano Grade 8 with Honours, AMEB Theory Grade 4 with Merit. I think it’s only a matter of time before I resume my LTMusA journeys!

I’ll catch you later in the cyberspace! You can contact me here for further enquiries. ☺

A cute blue kangaroo I designed back in 2007, though it wasn’t until 2015 that I was able to find a close friend whom was able to design her to my pickiness (thanks Dusky Fox)!
