Good on you for writing!
Thank you, sir.  8)
Recording equipment is set up... could be some delays, though, due to school and the difficulty of actually performing the music.

Done recording my song "Chains of Promathia." Both guitars and bass guitar are performed by me, drums are sampled. This is not a good recording at all (home recording and plenty of inaccuracies, especially when it comes to timing and synching instruments), but it'll just give an idea of what I wrote in Guitar Pro.

Very cool, Greg. It actually kind of reminds me of this piece by Ben Monder called Hatchet Face. Check this song out sometime. It's on his album called Excavation.

Thanks, John. I looked up Ben Monder on youtube and couldn't find that song. I did find a song called "Echolalia" which was amazing. Seems he's really obscure... what else is out there like this?

Check out Ellenville and Sunny Manitoba by Ben Monder.

It's almost been a year...  :(

Well, eventually I'll get working on my epic instrumental prog or whatever piece. Guitar solo + backup of A LOT of different instruments. 4 movements, about an hour long most likely.


My main inspiration will be:


 ;D


(and of course, Mahler, Meshuggah, Xenakis, BTBAM, Haken, etc.)

Probably 80% Haken/Mahler and 20% Meshuggah/Xenakis...

Today I wrote a solo acoustic guitar piece that's about 2 minutes long or so. Gonna learn how to play it and then will post it within the next few days.

It's called "Ubloobideega's Waltz."

Then again, the name isn't set in stone yet. Possibly "Black Mage Waltz?" Wearing a black mage hat would be awesome while playing this.

I've written two new piano pieces- if anyone is interested in listening, PM me.

Very satisfied with them.  :)

So to explain my plan, in brief:

I will be releasing 4 albums on bandcamp when I'm done (either by late this year, or more likely next year).

Album 1: Piano Works- 1 hours' worth (already finished, used CFX Concert Grand for this, which is about 90% as good sound quality as a real performer IMO)
Album 2: Chamber and Orchestral music- ~38 minutes' worth, will just be my previous compositions but rewritten in EWQL for better sound quality
Album 3: Instrumental Rock/Metal album- ~40-50 minutes' worth, I have a lot of fragments of music that I will have to arrange for this
Album 4: (No specificed genre)- ~40 minutes worth, I don't have music for this yet, but it will be a concept album involving eerie-sounding guitars and certain "unlikely" percussion, etc.
Wagie wagie get back in the cagie
