I used to work on Call Centers.....

Lots of hearing complaints by phone, troubleshooting internet connections, chasing fraudsters when working with collection companies... etc

Pure ****. I became tired and being fired several times, problems related with authority. Slowly became intermitent and intolerant to supervisor´s mediocrity and explotation.

So, now, I scratch my balls most of the day. I give synthesis private lessons during the night, and get a little bit of cash to barely survive.

Most of my gear came from sponsorship from rich people who likes what I do. They purchase the synths, I play them. That´s how I got a Tempest and a Prophet 08 this year


chulo!.... I´m thinking on getting into the Pimp arena

Theres a lot in common... carpentry, electronic music and software, they require technical knowledge and are creative. i just like making things

This is a pretty interesting thread. Sucks that we can't all make electronic music for a living. But with some hard work, dedication, and a little luck, some of us (those who want to at least) will inevitably get there!

A lot of people seem to be involved with media. I'm a copywriter/producer myself.
