As of Right Now

Hey Newgrounds,

 

I've been posting a lot of my music here recently but have yet to publish anything in the ways of news posts, felt like now would be a nice time to change that. 

As of right now I am studying music and living in London, I've been here a couple of years now, always putting off my studies to work on music, which is the last thing I should probably be doing lmao. 

I started producing about this time last year, flitted between DAWs to find one I liked, after having testers of FL, Reason and previous experience with Logic I stumbled across Ableton and it became my go-to and new home for making music. I've spent the time between then and now writing as much music as I enjoyably can.

My current set up for music production is fairly abysmal if I'm being honest, been working off of an old hand-me-down laptop with next to no CPU, attempting to mix on cheap headphones and whatever audio systems come to hand, but I'm hoping to change that soon, I finish my course in around 6 months, will be investing in a new laptop, monitors and a new set of headphones (after christmas sales amirite?) and continuing to work on my music as hard as I have been all along.

In regards to my current goals, I've always been really interested in writing music for games, the indie market especially, there's something I've always liked about it, but for now until I feel I could create a product that would be a quality that I'd be happy to hear in any sort of game/animation project I'm going to continue creating music just 'cause it's what I enjoy doing with my time, whilst unintentionally creating a portfolio that could come in handy in the future. 

Newgrounds has really boosted my creativity, I get so lost in writing music on a song by song basis and not looking at the bigger picture that later on I look back and realise I've created music more music than I would've had I just sat down and set a specific goal for the same amount of work.

Anyway, that wraps this up for now, I'm excited to continue uploading and hoping to hear any feedback and opinions that you guys have for me, now and in the future, Cheers - <3
