Well, considering it's been exactly a year since my last news post I figured I might as well make a new one.
Here it goes.
I've had writers block for a while now, mostly due to lack of free time as well as lack of patience, both of which are due to stress and other personal shit that kinda sucks. Fortunately though I still find time now and again to work on pieces, and I am looking forward to the deathmatch this year if it happens so I can get paired with top-ranking musicians and get my ass kicked again.
Other than that, though, things are pretty chill.
I thought this summer would've provided me ample opportunity to be writing all the musics. Unfortunately I made the mistake of wanting "money" and thinking I could use a "place of employment" and as a result am now left with a job that eats up all my time and leaves me with not much creativity left.
So, the only logical thing to do would be enter the biggest audio competition of the summer. While I need no more stress in my life, after last year I am bound and determined to make it past round one, and I've got some ideas already brewing. Of course, I could pull the short straw and be stuck with someone such as SoundChris, Johnfn, or the other orchestral gods, but with some luck it might just happen.
Additionally, after my vague and confusing last post, I can now shed more light on this game company that has hired me. They're called Lethal Lens, and their game Project Icarus is being developed now by an amazing team of people who I've been greatly involved with. I've been spending most of my free time writing music for them, but now I've shifted my focus more towards writing for my own gain as well as for the newgrounds community.
That about wraps up this post. Thanks for reading all three of you that did, and check back soon when I actually put more stuff up.
So I haven't really been doing much recently here on NG. Why's that?
I've been hired by a game company to score their game. I can't say much about it now but it's pretty sweet.
Well, nothing like a good half a year after my last update to post again.
Things have happened, some good, some bad.
- I had the previlage of being hired to compose for a large FPS game (can't talk much about it at this time, sorry)
- My grandfather passed. This was a rather emotional time, and a few of my songs have some of that emotion in them.
- I entered the Audio Deathmatch and lost by 0.1 points. Felt like I was robbed. :p
- I started writing electro again! Check out that shit here: http://soundcloud.com/papkee
That's all sheeple. You can now carry on with whatever schenanagains you were doing.
Wow, I barely use these post things.
Just a few things to keep you guys (all 10 of you) in the loop.
1. I've been working with a record lable called Voltage Square Check them out.
2. I do take requests (for free use) as well as commissions (for not so free use). Just PM me with your heart's desire.
That's all. Proceed with listening.
I'm back writing more music. I took a quick hiatus because I spent all my energy making 12 effing songs in a week.
Which in hindsight wasn't such a great idea. it lead to a large bout of writer's block and general lack of any creativity. I would recommend taking at least a day break between songs.
So yeah, that's about it I think. Keep on doin' what you're doin', and I'll keep writing more music.
Man, it seems like I make all my posts on my phone.
Anyway, I find it strange that my recent tracks are not getting a single rating. It's weird because I play them for my friends and they find them great. Plus, they're better than some of my songs with 5 stars. :/
Eh, whatever. Hopefully they'll just come in time. Maybe I'll manage to get a few more followers. 5 ain't so shabby though.
Or is it? I don't look at other people's profiles so I don't have anything to compare to, thus no fear of not being good.
Well, today marks the first time I've gotten a song on the first page of the weekly popular songs list! That's a big deal for me, as it shows I am always getting better. I just wish it was one of my electro songs; those are my weakness I guess...
In other news, a new electro song is in the works, and this time I'm trying for the dirty, hard electro that people like Stephen walking and noisestrom make.
Get ready to either bop you head or throw your headphones at a car.
Why is it that only a few of my songs get reviews? I really need the feedback because I still can't make a very good song yet. You guys are making me frustrated. I know you listen to the songs, so why not tell me what I need to improve?
...darn, there's my depressive side again.
I can write again! Took some deep breaths, and a few icebreakers, and boom. I'm back in it. Expect a new track later today!
