More than a decade ago, watching my father composing, mastering, and working in the studio, helped me acquire some understanding and very basic skills in music. Though, last time I applied it was probably around 2008, when being a –wannabe- DJ in junior year of high school was a cool thing. Except for few short films and video editing after, when I had to trim and match a background music.
