Q:Did you remove the original song in that clip yourself, or did you find it already done somewhere?
That was all done by hand, dude
I spent way more time making this than I really should have.
Q:How long have you been playing cello, and any tips for aspiring string musicians(viola)?
Almost 14 years now. And for advice, just: practice. Play all the time. When I was a kid I hated practicing, but it got a little better when I found music I was really into and played that in addition to the stuff I was told to. I would absolutely love to be a career symphony player, but the only reason I’m not is because I didn’t practice enough when I was younger. I regret it. I should have been playing 3+ hours a day, but instead there were so many days I didn’t play at all.
BUT I’M DIGRESSING, HERE.
Viola is awesome, easily my first choice if I had to stop playing cello for some reason. You might meet some violinists who will be rude to you about it, but just ignore them.
This is a Homestuck song I’ve been working on. It’s not totally finished, but this is a good demo version! Codenamed “Project Latitude” because the title would give away which character the song is for (you might be able to guess anyhow).
People are still speculating about this especially over on Andarix’s blog. I thought someone would have called it by now, but as far as I know no one has guessed it right.
This is a personal song, ambient and weird and made purely to express myself. Someday it will be on an album of mine.
It meant a lot to me to be able to make this, not only because it’s personal but also because I tried out a lot of new things here. For best effect, I recommend listening on headphones or speakers that let you hear the low-end bass.
I would never be able to write music like this without the help of my supporters on Patreon. If you want to help me keep doing what I love, that’s the place to do it! Also you also get access to goodies like download links to songs I haven’t released yet, so do give it some thought.
Oh and the song art, it’s a photograph I took on accident of some imaginary architecture I had drawn for fun.
And aside from all that, enjoy the music; that’s what it’s for!
Being silent on this blog is so difficult! I’m working on this… stuff, right? And it’s some of the best music I’ve ever made, and for a project that’s so awesome I can barely contain my childish excitement. There is only one thing, one detail that is the least bit displeasurable about this whole business, and that is the secrecy that goes along with the gig. Oaths were sworn, and my work so far is classified.
And that’s hard. I guess it’s a good problem to have, but waiting is something I proverbially CANNOT DO (I can wait, and I will do so happily, but I have to make my point). A day will come when I can show you all this awesome stuff on which I’ve been hard at work, and I will be a giddy boy on that day.
Thank you guys here on Tumblr and over on Patreon for your support and your patience!! Since I can’t show you any of my recent work, here’s a picture of my new cat instead.
Hey there!! My birthday is coming up on August 8th, and I’m a bit broke!
So if you’d be so kind, consider giving me some work so I can give myself a great birthday! Click here to check out my order form!
(And if you can’t afford a commission, please reblog this post. Thank you!)
Her birthday AND our anniversary are coming up, but money is tight. If you’re in the market for some visual art, look no further!
Q:Hey, so I just got Crea off Steam. First thing's first: I love it. The game is great, looks beautiful, and the music is amazing (which isn't surprising seeing how you made it). There is a steep learning curve though, since how it doesn't have The Guide like in Terraria nor is there an established fan base for help. Really excited to see how things go from here!
Glad you like the game! And the good news is it’s only going to get better from here, and more intuitive to play. Jasson, the developer, has been making some cool changes lately to some of the movement and combat systems, too.
Q:You may have answered this before, but I was wondering, what is the origin of the name "plazmataz? Love your work, by the way!
Thanks! It’s at the meeting point of “plasma” and “razzmatazz.”
