Circa 2012: Demos & Singles

Circa 2012: Demos & Singles

Circa 2012: Demos & Singles is a selection of unfinished tracks written circa 2012, as well as some finished tracks that were born around that time. Most of this music was created for projects that never came to fruition. I had planned to continue work on the unfinished business, but it is now the end of the road for most of these pieces. This album is not the peak of my music production abilities, but I had fun writing these melodies, and hopefully you will enjoy listening to them. Feedback and critiques are appreciated. =}

Kali Yuga Time Machine, the latest album by experimental artist group Speed of Sound, went on sale earlier this year. While Navagraha focused my energy into a single track, Kali Yuga allowed me to act in a team-oriented role, contributing to multiple tracks both as a composer and a performer. Head on over to Bandcamp and listen to the entire album for free! Also, check out the page on Cogswell College’s website to learn more about Speed of Sound.

Cogswell College Fusion Awards 2013 Music Production Trophy

This past month, on June 22nd, Cogswell College hosted the 2013 Fusion Awards, which gave me what is likely my greatest level of music recognition to date. I won TWO awards, and was nominated for an additional two categories!

My wins were Best Music Production for Monochromatic [download], a track I composed and produced for a console game in development, and Best Game for Wizard Prison, a title I am currently working on in various capacities, including as the sole programmer. (The latter award was shared amongst the development team.)

I helped with the creation of this album, and composed my own track, “Mars“, on which Subramanya Ananda and Cameron McLaughlin perform. [lossless mirror]

Navagraha is an album (nearly) completed over two days, with final mixing and mastering done not long afterwards. “Mars” is one of those tracks completed in its entirety over roughly a 24hr period.

Cogswell Fusion Awards Winner

Tonight I had the honor of winning the award for best Music Composition at the Cogswell Fusion Awards. Jum Alpha Laboratory (Fusion Mix)[mp3] beat out six strong entries from other students. I thank everyone who voted for me. It’s truly encouraging to know that, even as a first-term student, I’m getting recognition for my ideas and skill. With the vast amount of knowledge I’m learning at this school, I can only assume next year’s entry will be even better.

As a note, “Fusion Mix” is essentially the same as the original version from my Admission Portfolio but looped/faded. Nevertheless, it’s available from the preceding link.
