      New track preview (Kill Deal!)

      2 years ago

      Hey! So I put up a preview to one of the many new tracks I'm working on at the moment called Kill Deal! It's a really heavy orchestral track that I think fans of Jeff Williams will love smiley8.gif . I'm really happy with how it's coming along, and I'm even more excited to release the finished version! Thanks so much for listening, please check out all my other songs on my Soundcloud account as well!

      Two new songs!

      2 years ago

      Hey all! It's been a while since I posted anything, been caught up in real life I guess. Anyway, two songs to share with you guys today!!

      I released a song about a month back that I forgot to link on here. It's called "Nights of Rain", and it's a very down-tempo triphop song heavily inspired by Massive Attack (I was on a huge Massive Attack kick when I wrote this song).

      If you know me, you know I'm a HUGE Trivium fan. I mean, I love them so much that I own Corey Beaulieu's signature CBV. Well, I have been itching to do an orchestral remake of a great intro track of theirs called "Capsizing the Sea", and I finally got around to doing it!

      As always, thanks so much for listening and keep an eye out for more music! I've got a lot of music I'm working on right now so keep you eyes peeled!

      New song, Out Of Coins!

      2 years ago

      So, I sat down to play a little Halo 4 multiplayer today and ended up REALLY wanting to play a lot of classic NES era games from my childhood. Some of the fondest memories I have of my childhood were spent with my mom playing NES games together. I had also been dying to write some music this weekend. So, my reminiscing mind ended up writing a pretty awesome chiptunes song called "Out Of Coins". Give it a listen, thanks! smiley0.gif

      20 a day - Day 1

      2 years ago

      So, I've uploaded my first track from my 20 a Day project. For those of you that don't know, I'm starting on a little adventure. I'm challenging myself to write 20 seconds of music a day 3 times a week. It's kind of a way to kick myself in the ass and make myself write music every day, and a chance to venture outside my comfort zone musically. Today's inspiration: Brown Bird and Horn section practice!

      20 a day

      in Forums > 20 a day | Follow this topic

      So, recently I've been having a little bit of writer's block when it comes to all things music related. My band's in the process of finalizing our EP tracks for recording, I've been working on a few orchestral scores in my spare time over the last year and I've been writing lyrics forever. Recently I've been pressed for time and have hit a wall when it comes to writing creatively. I'll sit down with all my equipment plugged in and turned on, and spend the very little time I have to write messing around and feeling like I'm not accomplishing anything when my free time's up. So, my thoughts are to start a little project I'm calling 20 a day.

      My plan is to write a 20 second short piece a day, five days a week. I'm allowing myself to spend up to an hour on it a day, and possibly longer if I have more time carved out. To flex my creative muscle I'm planning on starting out very freeform, and move to a "challenge day" a week or more where I challenge myself by maybe writing with a specific genre as the focus, maybe utilize only specific instruments, or maybe even to do a whole song on a day that I've got plenty of time to work on music. The deadline of either an hour writing or a 20 second song will be VERY strict each day so that whatever I'm working on won't hang in what us software developers call "project hell" where it's an ongoing process of revisions with no real release ever coming. I'm planning on publishing each day's work on Soundcloud and possibly Youtube each day. Some weeks might be a little busier than others so it may not be 5 days a week, but I'd like to make sure I do it as often as possible. Hopefully as an end result I'll have jumpstarted my creative process again and will have managed to get some interesting ideas down to incorporate into future songs.

      I'm planning on starting Monday if everything goes according to plan. Hopefully this will kickstart my inspiration again, and I encourage you to use similar ideas to help with your creative process. Has anyone ever tried something like this, with any cool results? I'm curious to see if any fellow RT users have tried similar ideas and have some cool stuff to show for it, whether ti be art, music, literature, etc.! I know personally I love reading knives_kill's write everyday journals. They're usually very witty and make for a short but entertaining read.

      New Video up!! Minecraft - Mine Z mod!

      2 years ago

      Mod Spotlight, my fiance @Anouki and I's Achievement Hunter series is back from our long break! The video uploader is working well again, and Caleb is catching up on videos which means we'll be posting regularly again!

      This week's mod is Minecraft's Dayz mod called MineZ! It's an adaption of the ARMA 2 DayZ multiplayer zombie-survival themed coop mod, and the mod is handled 100% server side, so no installation is necessary. All you have to do is join one of their many servers, and you'll be shoved into a zombie hell march. It literally couldn't be any easier! Check out the video here , and you can find all the server information at www.minez.net.

      As always, check out the forums to suggest games/mods, we're always looking for awesome mods to cover!
