Music and Life Update

2017-08-04 16:02:21 by AceMantra

Just sending another update. I have a lot to cover since my last post seemed like it was forever ago.


My ear has healed up nicely as far as I can tell, and I'm no longer coughing to the point of vomiting. Whatever it was it's gone now, so I'm sure there's nothing to worry about now (fingers crossed).

During my time of sickness however, I thought it would be a good idea to audition for NGADM. Being certain that I wouldn't get in, I thought it couldn't hurt to at least try. To my surprise I not only made it into the first round, I placed 7th out of the 236 people who auditioned. On top of that good news, I received news that I got hired to work a part-time job. Great news all around! Well, except being sick at the time.

So between vomiting, working a new job, competing in NGADM, and getting a music gig for a video game (more on that later) were nights filled with anxiety. But I was up for the challenge! My goal for NGADM was to finish something, I didn't care if I even made it to the next round. So I made this: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/754519

I didn't advance to the next round, but honestly I was relieved. It gave me more time to focus on work and video game music.


Now, the music gig which is now complete is for a game set to release this month. I was asked to do Synthwave, and being a fan of the genre I agreed. I later realized my mistake, as being a fan doesn't really mean you have any experience. "But I used to do a lot of Trance," I thought, "how different could they be?" (They are WAY different). I may upload a couple of the tracks in the next day or two if anyone is curious.

That's all for now. There's a lot more to write about still but I'm running out of time yet again. Expect another update soon!
