So I noticed that about a year and a half ago (before I was a member here) some of you guys created threads to share your own music. I've already had a link to my SoundCloud profile in my signature for a long time, but I figured I might as well explicitly and shamelessly create a thread to prompt some responses (assuming you guys can manage to withstand staring at that ugly picture of me my wife took while I was chewing)! A lot of what I have on my SoundCloud is stuff I don't exactly stand by in terms of quality (it's kind of a small random sampling, honestly, and some of it is crap that I churned out in like a half hour because I just felt like writing something but didn't feel like trying hard), but I really think some of it is quite good, so I'll direct you to some specific things (but feel free to listen to all of it if you want to). I like this set of four very short piano pieces. One is a duet and the other three are solos. I was thinking I would write more and treat them as a suite intended to be performed by two pianists divvying up the pieces however they like (duets performed by both of them, of course), and I do have one or two other pieces in the works, but I keep failing to come back to work on these. ODE. I posted this recently at FantasyStrike in the "'Look what I made' thread" thread, but I got no response other than likes by ratxt1 and Kadir. My wife actually liked this one (she usually does not like my music). She said that I was starting to tie things together better instead of just stringing a bunch of unrelated material together, though I disagree with her that I am "starting" to do that. I just do different things with different pieces, and with this one I deliberately did what I did. It really wasn't a "finally coming to grips with how to write better music" thing. I do not stand by this track as being mixed well, but I like the composition a lot. In the Presence of My Enemies. Actually, this is a track from the forthcoming debut full-length album from this weird reclusive space-age superhero from the future who asked me to produce his album (don't ask; he's weird). So while the album isn't really "mine" I did actually compose most of the music in this track (I am actually co-composing maybe 20% of the album). Null Terminator (his artist name) wrote the third part with all the lush string synths at the end, but the melody there is actually a slow pseudo-counterpoint repetition of the melody that opens the track, so I actually kinda wrote that part too. I will surely do a more proper mix of this thing or possibly just hire someone who actually knows what they're doing. The Sand Sub Crew. Actually, this is a remix of a MIDI track I wrote for a point and click adventure game I made in June 2005 (you can still play it if you want to! It's really bad! LOL) before I knew anything about "systems" or "forms" or "complexity effectiveness" or anything like that. But I really like the quasi-classical melody lines, even though it just repeats and repeats and repeats (it was meant for a video game, so it was designed to loop, of course). The guitar solo is pretty bad, but I didn't do a lot of takes. I got lazy. Mellow. Made with the iPad version of Garage Band. Another game music remix, except the kinda weird thing is that this was the original track I created and the version going into the game it's intended for (RPG Maker game called Selatria coming out after probably four or five more pushed back release dates from now; this isn't my game, I'm just writing music for it) is actually a separate track derived from this one. So I guess this one isn't actually the remix but the original. .e Intro Theme. Once upon a time long long ago, I was going to try to make some kinda long RPG thing called ".e" but I didn't get any further into it than the prologue cutscene and the stats selection screen (I mean, I had a whole stupid story written out and everything, but in terms of deliverables it was pretty much just a cutscene and a stats screen). So I still have this fake NES music that I wrote for it a long time ago. I still kind of like it. I suppose that might be enough so I'll stop there.
