When writing about Ætheria, care should be taken to use the Æ character. The correct way to typeset Æ in HTML is
Æ. In other documents, on Windows, it can be typed directly by holding
Alt and pressing
0198 on the number pad, and on Mac OS X by holding
Shift and pressing
' (apostrophe). On nearly all smart or mobile operating systems it is available by holding the
A key on the virtual keyboard. See the Wikipedia article on Æ for more details. If the Æ character is not available in the typeface you are using, it is acceptable to spell Ætheria as AEtheria or Aetheria, at your discretion.

This term isn't strictly necessary, I'd just appreciate it. In online media, alongside any use of these materials a hyperlink should be provided to http://aetheria.co.uk.

Similarly, if you are writing about an Ætheria album, a link to the album's Bandcamp page should be provided.

Hi! I'm Ætheria (real name Telyn ZF Roat). My goals in life are to make music and to support myself by doing so, in order to do so more! I really friggin' love music. Besides being a touring musician, my dream job would be working on soundtracks. I managed to get the opportunity to do so in June 2013, and am on the Machine of Death party game's timer music album! My tracks are GUNNED DOWN RUNNING AWAY and PREDICTION ANXIETY. If you have a soundtrack you'd like me to work on, shoot me an email and I'll let you know if I can!
I make mostly bassy electronic stuff. I try to experiment as much as possible, and in the course of my music production have made tracks using a radiator, a wall, and even made all the instruments in one track from a single sample of a creaking gate. Currently my main musical inspirations are The Knife, 65daysofstatic, dubstep, drum'n'bass, and film and video game soundtracks.
I make all my music in a flat in York. My speakers are Alesis 520USBs and my keyboard an Alesis QX61. I also have a thoroughly beaten-up Fender Squier guitar, two acoustics, a Casio DG-20, a Behringer FCB1010, a Shure PG48 and a Korg Monotron and contact mic. I do all my production on a laptop. It's a pretty budget setup, probably costed about £1200 in all without the laptop. When I dream of being rich and famous (or at least comparatively rich), I dream of owning a celtic harp, a hurdy-gurdy, and a violin. I also currently have eyes (and Ebay saved searches) on about 8 synthesizers. ...One day.
Software-wise, I use Ableton Live and Propellerheads Reason, plus a lot of VSTs. Antress' Modern audio effects are great, DaHornet is one of my favourite synths, dBlue's Glitch is a complex but brilliant glitch effects unit. There're a couple of others I use a lot but I can't remember them right now.
