Impressive. You're pretty impressive actually, particularly the useful skill I see the learning by ear. That will become invaluable as you progress musically.

Thanks a lot, plunK. Right now my current project is writing an EP-length piano album titled Finality. Currently I'm trying to work my way through some of the more bizarre aspects of songwriting, like writing something in 7/8 or otherwise uncommon times. It's really going to be sort of an experimental album, as all I've written before this has been in boring ol' 4/4. The album itself will follow a progression of sorts, starting from relatively peaceful, going to somewhat turbulent in the middle then ending on sad notes.

Being a fellow composer, time signature creativity is cool, but not always the best. I've tried writing stuff in crazy signatures (the only one that worked was 27/8) but most of the time its more frustrating than it needs to be and i find myself in 4/4, which isnt necissarily bad.

I never really said 4/4 was bad, but putting something new into your songs really does make someone bring their head up and say, "Hey, this is interesting." Working at doing something out of the ordinary pays off in the end. Also, interesting note: 7/8 somehow feels easier to work with than 3/4

3/4..... yeah 7/8 I find easier but overall there are far less good songs written in it, as you need just the right accents to avoid awkwardness. This song I think does a decent job of that in the 7/8 chorus part:

I've always thought Coldplay did 7/8 well, like in Death and All His Friends, and Glass of Water. There's also Robert Blaker, who wrote ETERNAL SUFFERING entirely in 7/8. Sorry for the lack of links, I'm using a phone.

Here's a rough and heavily WIP 30-second sample off a song I plan to enter into Homestuck's music contest. Completely original. Planned saxophone and electric guitars, the whole shebang.

I should get around to uploading some non-HS content some time.

If due to a system fart the widget fails to load, just follow this link.

As I work more for a place in the album, the song gets better and better. Not quite there yet, though.

Well it's still in a bare writing state so it doesn't sound very pro... Most of the samples are temporary, I'm using Modplug because it's the easiest to use when it comes to complicated time signatures.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38637435/derp/Terezi.s3m

And here are the lyrics I have so far:

I've seen all kinds of the end
I've seen with the eyes unseeing
I've been at every turn and bend
Been sewing up what you've been tearing

My mind splinters with the lines of time
My life lingers at the edge of crime
My truth bends according to my will
My heart commands the treachery be killed

I'm the judge and I'm the hangman
I'm waging the just and the wrong
I'm the dragon breath, insecticide
Keep smelling your track and playing along

My mind splinters with the lines of time
My life lingers at the edge of crime
My truth bends according to my will
My heart commands the treachery be killed

Yet another WIP shot. It's much longer than the previous one and is sweet, if I do say so myself.

So how's your Homestuck song coming along? Mine's shaping up now, just need to fix a few parts and finish the lyrics and then I can record stuff and mix it. But as if it weren't enough, I also started working on a pretty cool song for Equius (who happens to be my Zodiac sign) so I have double the work to do.

Fairly decently, but I went on a week holiday and had to forgo my tools during that period. I have a lot to catch up on, and I'm not sure if I can send in a John entry by then as well.

Totally streaming shit for anyone who'd like to see.

Really that amounts to not many. I'm going to be on at fairly consistent times for a while now.

I felt like I should post something up here because I haven't in a while. This was a quick experiment I did in gating (cutting out regular pieces of the audio). Everything was improvised except for the gated part of it.

Ignore the strings at the end. I stuck that in for filler.



Lights be psychedelic. Trippy.

Something I scrapped for that little Hey coders! thing we had going on here. I would have made it for the main menu, but eventually I decided it wouldn't fit in any conceivable stage of the game, so it's tossed. I might revisit it next time.

They came prepackaged with my copy of Logic Studio. If the strings sound a little different to you, it might be because I used three string tracks for the arpeggios, each slightly different from the other, one panned halfway to the left, one halfway to the right, and one in the center.

Remixes :DDD I'm working on one for Homestuck's Flare because Flare is awesome and that's that.

Take your pick, YouTube or Soundcloud.

As this is a WIP, I'd love some input as well, thanks in advance.


EDIT: It is now done.



Soundcloud has better quality than YouTube

I am currently in the process of making an ambient blues piece! I also would love any comments and criticism you guys are able to offer, so that hopefully the finished product is as polished as possible.

Very atmospheric and nice to listen.
Blues is one of my favorited music genres...
As usual when I listen blues track - In my eyes appears a picture of nightlight city... :P
Like the guitar at 4th minute...
All in all the melody is pretty solid.

I wish I could give a fair review, but I'm just a freelance-composer so I don't know
what's standart properties a blues track should have...
BTW, I hope you'll finish it and It will be in full beauty. Looking forward for your new works!

why would you need xm specifically? I do have all of the songs in their original tracker format and none, and I mean NONE of them is xm. it's all either s3m or it

btw yes this is offtopic and I'm only replying to this here because I'm in my don't-really-care mode but if anyone can move these two posts then that would be great

Anyway yeah with what Jake said, you can always just get ModPlug and copy the .j2b files directly from your Jazz 2 folder.

ModPlug is a tracker, and .j2b's can be opened by them. Not sure what else you'd want.

Small note though, ModPlug is now called OpenMPT.

I've just completed the ambient blues piece!

Or at least the writing process is complete. I might polish it over the next few days.
