I’m still around! I’ve been very busy with college lately though so I haven’t had time to make music. It’s be pretty dang crazy actually. There’s college, and then there’s taking Junior project, Senior project, Advanced Technical Writing, RISC Architecture, and Globalization all in the same term. Bleeh.
I don’t mean to be brag-y or something. I just wanted to say that I do have a good reason for not having made music in a while. I’ve wanted to. There have been some late nights where I cannot focus on work but am feeling artsy so I mess around with LMMS a little bit. I’ve had a few good track ideas come out of that but there hasn’t been anything substantial. And, of course, no time to finish any of it.
If you are reading this then thank you for being a “loyal follower.” I really do appreciate those people who take the time to check out what I’m doing. As a small gift, I wanted to share a few of the track ideas I’ve had in the past few months. Nothing special. Very raw and un-polished, that is for sure. Nonetheless, if you have a few moments, check these ideas out.
Here’s one. I’m currently calling it “Metastable” but I often change names before songs are released.

That is my first attempt a sort of a DnB kind of sound. It needs more of something. I don’t know what. It’s got kind of some cool down-under feels, but it feels a little lacking otherwise. We’ll see.
Another one came from something I was listening to. I don’t recall what it was now. It might have been something from a movie. All I remember is that I really liked how the artist used a fairly fast piano in the background with a lot of reverb. This is what came out of that….

Lastly, this is a track I’ve been working on for some time. I’m actually really excited about this one. You might have heard it pop up on SoundCloud once or twice. There is something odd going on with the mixing at 2 minutes 4 seconds which I’ll have to fix at some point. Also there is no real ending right now. Anyway. This track is currently (and probably will remain) titled “Jump.” Enjoy! 😀
OH! I almost forgot! Why a penguin picture at the top? Well…
- I like penguins
- I’m a fan of Linux and the Linux mascot has traditionally been a penguin
- I played Club Penguin for a little while as a kid
So there you go.
Thanks for reading and staying up with my music! If you liked any or all of these tracks, please let me know in the comments section below!
