Happy birthday...

to me! It's been quite awhile. I'm happy about it, and I've been enjoying life so far. :)

How have you liked your life so far?


Pop quiz!

What's the strangest instrument you know of? I'm not talking about a synthesizer, I'm talking about a real mechanical or electrical instrument.

Mine would have to be the oomphalapompatronium. If you have no idea what that is, then you should learn.


Ho hum.

Things have been slow recently, and I haven't uploaded anything too interesting... I only have one other song that I need to make which is less interesting, and then I have not one, but TWO interesting ideas to make! Both of them play on a "cold" theme, and I'm hoping to collab on them both with Kor-Rune, winner of the NGADM! Yep, things are looking up! :)

In other news, I played with a marching band yesterday and achieved a gold medal rating! So now, I have my third shiny medal that I can put on my door.

In other other news, I should be meeting with someone in the movie industry soon - wish me luck, hopefully I'll be able to get some kind of job with them!


Bloop!

I am proud to present the giant amalgam of sound that I've been working on for the past two weeks. It is some kind of progressive rock, I think. I really don't know what it is completely. However, that doesn't matter it's awesome go listen to it now:

Also. Bloop.


Nostalgiaaaaaaa~

Okay, so. I was digging through my old stuff and found some of my earliest music projects, so I thought...

"Why not upload them here and let people hear how bad I was when I started?"

So yeah. Here they are, please read the descriptions in each. ^_^ Or at least look for the timestamps, they're in the first two paragraphs and have links to the other song.
Nostalgia 1 (My first song): http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/501072
Nostalgia 2 (one of my better songs from back then): http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/501073


Holy what the hell.

Okay, this.

I want an essay (or at least a comment) on what you think about it. Honestly, what the hell is Disney doing.



So. I made MORE music. ...obviously. What else would I do?

This one has a bit of an odd story somewhat behind it, if you read the first paragraph of the description. Also, it's really experimental in some ways and just plain awesome, so yay. :D

Oh my god.

It's FINALLY done.

Seriously, some major thanks is due to BrokenDeck for not only managing to upload this song but also fixing the waveform so it wasn't really really big and clippy. There's a lot of dynamic range, a lot of different sounds, different ideas, everything from ambient sounds to a little surprise that I put in there, taking concepts from a genre I don't normally dabble in. The entire song has taken over 80 hours of tweaking to get to what it is, and I think it's turned out well.

Second, major thanks to Step for giving such awesome feedback AND a string sample (find it and you get a brownie (yes, I looked out for you, Aaracoa)). I think I'm going to be giving out a lot of brownies. Anyway, thankyouthankyouthankyou for all the support.

...oh yeah, and here's the song. :D


It would appear.

That I am now one of the 6 main judges for the NGADM 2012. For any audio-makers that look at my news posts, I'd suggest auditioning. :)

If you make it in, you'll be getting some VERY high-quality reviews from me and several other people. So in the case that you feel like trying, I wish you luck!
