Hi, I'm Tre. I was a Troper (initially joining in 2010), then I wasn't, and now I am again.
I'm eighteen, black, mostly male, a writer, a technology junkie, a purveyor of platformers, and a pop culture aficionado. In addition to my writing (which mostly lives on my blog, American Style Buffoonery, I also make crappy Electronic Music as Trevor Whatevr, with three EPs and two albums under my belt. I used to have a novelseries in the works, but at this point in time it's kind of dead (though I'm not planning on abandoning the universe entirely).
That's pretty much it. Drop me a line!
Works and Other Things I Love:
Rayman (became My Literal Favorite Thing after I left, and has remained such since)
Myspeld Rökband: The second E in the word "whatever" is nonexistent (and none of the vowels exist when the TRVRWHTVR name is used). This was done on purpose to keep people from confusing me with a DJ going by the same name, and to improve my ability to be found in a Google search.
Sampling: I was wary of this at first, but since I joined Audiotool I've warmed up to it.
Signature Style: What I like to call "epic chiptune", which takes the fundamental elements of chiptune and expands upon them with house-like synths, reverb and samples. Debuted with "Gomez" and popped up a majority of the songs on w/e.
The cover art for w/e is a glitch art image made from pictures of (almost) all of the works given nods by the songs themselves (or stuff I just thought was cool at the time).
The sample in "One for Fog, Two for Treasure" is lifted directly from Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. The title of the song is taken from a line by Skidmark from Turbo FAST.
"Eighteen Years" features a glitched-up image from BioShock Infinite as its cover. (Additionally, the song itself closely resembles "Aquatic Ambiance" from Donkey Kong Country, though this was not planned.)
"I'm Dirty Dan!" is a love letter to SpongeBob, particularly the second season episode "Survival of the Idiots".
Speaking of BattleBlock Theater, the Callow Youth track "Your New Best Friend" was originally bookended by samples from the game but they were removed due to a (erroneous) copyright claim on Sound Cloud. The cover art is still a screenshot from the game, however.
