Flatsound About

When I was young, about nine or ten years old, I discovered sound recorder on the old Windows 98 computer that I shared with my siblings. You probably remember sound recorder, it was extremely simple, You could record, playback, speed up, slow down, and reverse audio. I called my brother into our room, and with him standing behind me i played him a short sound clip. it was a hissy, low quality recording of my own voice, “look what i figured out how to do”.

That sounds cheesy, but that’s how it happened, and it fascinated me. My voice, recorded, and then played back at the press of a button.

Throughout middle school and even into high school I began playing with audio recorders whenever I had the chance. I’d record myself talking, whatever was on tv, even parts of my favorite songs so that i could carry them all with me. It felt more personal than cds because I was the one who got to press record, I could manipulate the audio. Sometimes I’d even ditch school with people that I barely knew and record our conversations through mini cassette recorders in my pocket. When I got home I’d play back the day, speed up our voices and laugh at it while laying in bed, It was a part of my own life resting in my hands. It happened, it was real. most of all, it was captured, that, for whatever reason, was everything to me.

My name is Mitch Welling, I’ve been writing words and recording songs under the name flatsound since 2007. my only goal is to create something honest.
