Cameron Gaut began his musical career at age 15 when he began learning every audio program he could. Inspired by a diverse collection of music, he began to create a wealth of songs that he released to the world through his web site. The efforts were enjoyed by many, but they left him unsatisfied.
Cameron continued to produce songs over the years, through high school and college. After taking several courses on Electronic Music Production, he was inspired to dig deeper into sound design, learning how to build virtual synths and program MIDI applications with Max/MSP.
Constantly striving to improve his sound, he continued to independently study production techniques. After learning a number of tips and tricks in music production, he started a well-referenced web site on the subject, emusictips.com. Helping others was his way of improving himself and refining his technique.
After seven years of dabbling in electronic music, Cameron decided to commit to releasing a full length album day. At his University of Oregon graduation ceremony in 2007, it was announced by the Dean of Philosophy that Cameron's goal was to release a full-length album of electronic music. This set the gears in motion, and 6 months later, he would compile a diverse group of songs he had been working on and packaged them into a first official release.
Do-it-yourself was a primary principle behind the production of Six Minute City. Every step of the process of bringing the CD into existence was directed solely by Cameron. His experience in graphic design design helped him create his own album art, his experience with creating music. In this way, Cameron chose to join the many artists now taking control of their musical careers.
