Heh, yeah... career was the only word i could think of... I'm really just interested in how the artists do what they do... Does anyone know of any other artists i could listen to? I'm kind of stuck finding other industrial artists...
Actually, now that you're motivated to make something yourself, and if you're interested in doing something that's not entirely derivative and predictable, don't turn to any existing artists for guides to making specific sounds, and don't aim for any given, easily pegged style -- i.e., "industrial", "power noise", "power electronics", or what have you. Instead, start listening closely to the ideas in your own head and imagination, trying to get a clear impression of what they're generally like -- more organic and flowing? or harder and rigid?, or loose and improvisational? or highly structured and detailed? Learn the basic characteristics and functions of the audio tools used to create and record just about any genre of music, narrow down what seems better suited to making those sounds and forms you hear internally, and what you can afford, and go from there. I'd say it's better to use the opinions on forums and from friends for cues as to what equipment to investigate, but don't turn to individual artists or specific genres for creative templates or ready made inspiration.
