Red Lotus

| MUSIC BLOG | SOUNDCLOUDBANDCAMP | COMMISSION |

I’ve wanted to do something with the musical leitmotif that seems to accompany the members of the Red Lotus throughout Book Three ever since it showed up in the Legend of Korra Book 3 trailer a few weeks ago. Legend of Korra’s score is so good—I hope Book 2 and 3’s scores get their own official releases soon!

Awakening - Soft Jazz Mix

This is the one track from FFVI I can never escape. Maybe if I do enough things with it, it’ll leave my head…

This is a song about ohnoproblems's super cool character ☆HYDRANGER☆! I used sablealice's Hydranger picture for the track art.

Aria di Wint

I had an epiphany this afternoon when I realized that I could use EWQL Symphonic Choirs Wordbuilder to make it say anything I wanted.

Baa Ram Ewe (I Love You)

I’ve been meaning to take a shot at Ewe-Lala’s song from morbi's webcomic Poppy O’Possum for a few weeks now, but didn’t get around to it until just recently.

If I could sing, I’d provide the vocals myself, but I can’t, so the alto saxophone is filling in for me.

Lyrics: www.poppy-opossum.com/comic/ewe-lala-page-5/

Well, musical gift art is definitely a first. Baa Ram Ewe actually has an extremely (almost obnoxiously) poppy and upbeat melody in-universe, but a slow, jazzy approach is interesting too.

If I could remember how to read and write music, I might jot down the tune in my head someday so people could do proper covers.

I figured the real song would be a more high-energy genre, but when I read the lyrics the the first thing that came to mind was “obnoxiously hammy lounge singer”, so that’s what I went with in my arrangement.

Moribund Malediction [Preview]

Hello followers—I just have a little update on my plans for the near future I’d like to share.

See this track? It’s about 1/4 of a composition I’ve been working on for another artist’s webcomic (I’m not saying who or what… yet). The full track will be released the same day as the webcomic update, which should be just a few weeks from now. Because of this, I won’t be starting the preorder for Spectral Signature until afterwards, because I don’t want one big project overshadowing the other.

During the preorder period for Spectral Signature, I will be showcasing each track one at a time, similarly to how a webcomic updates with a single page every day (I’ve concluded that one song must be worth at least one page). I’m still thinking about how to schedule the updates. The album has 32 tracks, unless I see fit to add more, which means that the preorder period could last anywhere from six weeks (if I post a new track every weekday) to ten weeks (if I post a new track every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Any longer than that and even I’d start getting impatient.

goatpox drew a character of mine, and since I asked for the character to be drawn conducting an orchestra, I came up with something for the orchestra to play!

Emerald Waltz

Surprise! I made some new Homestuck fan music. …Or does it really count as “new”? I was listening to a bunch of the Homestuck music I made 2-3 years ago and I found one old track that I thought still sounded pretty neat, so I decided to make a new version of it!

"Don’t title your portfolio “I Suck”. Don’t call yourself “aspiring”. Don’t joke about how worthless your art is then ask for money for it. Artists, you’re also salesmen. If everything about your sales pitch is telling clients to go away, that’s exactly what they’re gonna do."

Now’s as good a time as any to say that Spectral Signature will be available for preorder soon-ish!

By soon-ish I mean in a few weeks. I just have to finish getting a few more things put together for it!
