So I've just uploaded three new original songs - haven't done any of those in a while!
the beauty of ruin - a solo piano sketch, semi-improvised. Kind of a film noir feel. I went for a very specific sound, and I think it's worth exploring further.
potentiality falls away - solo guitar, but parts are overdubbed. It's a kind of minimalist/post-rock/ambient tune where textures are built on top of a low-chord base. Lots of reverb and delay. It's a sadder tune. I guess I'm good at those.
INTERSTELLAR UPPERCUT - this is kind of a loveletter to Sonic Mania. The previous song was enough to make me want to try something completely different - a jazz-ish, fun, VGM tune. I've really wanted to dabble more into electronic music, so this was a good way to start. I haven't quite nailed the sound yet, but I'm learning!
They're from earlier this year, from a challenge that a few of my composer friends came up with called "Tunesday" - we would get an art prompt, and then we would have to write a piece of music based on that artwork in ONE WEEK OR LESS. We'd release songs on Tuesdays.
Despite having written these only in one week at a time, they're by far some of my favorite compositions so far. It's a really fun and challenging exercise, I'd love to do it again sometime!
I've also been real busy with work in music - mixing, arranging, and composing, as well as editing podcasts and audiobooks. If you need a big ol audio boy for your projects, hit me up!
