THE GENRE CHALLENGE
Here you will find my progress on the Genre Challenge!
For licencing inquires please contact me through my website.
I have a wonderful CD holder which I plan to completely fill with a huge verity of works of art and studies. Here you will find the works, and some special deals,
Firstly, you can download the music for free as an mp3 or wave file, but it is a "pay what you want" option so anything is of course appreciated!
Second, you will find some special options for some albums, this may range from the project files and stems, to just the project files, sheet music, or other things I may think would be cool to include.
Finally, I learn tons from every project, and would like a place to explain the philosophy of some projects, therefore, I may have tutorials showing a process or a blog explaining things that I learned from a project and I will do my best to link these for those who are interested.

MASTER PLAYLIST IN ORDER
# 1 GLitch HOP
I am not done with this Genre by a long shot!
This first came about as one of my first real serious attempts at production. My sound design knowledge was pretty large but this predates any college, and so my mixing and general song writing has some unusual moves. It is an interesting work to follow because it moves through the time period I started the audio program and I finished this EP about 3 semesters in.
It is called colors because of the first track which was heavily inspired by Daft Punks "Harder Better Faster Stronger". Of the tracks on this EP, "Work All Day" is my favorite. Don't ask about Killer Ladybugs if you want to live. Finally, Don't Look Inside has the most meaning of any of these songs. I'll let you listen for yourself, just saying what it means takes away from the art.

# 2 Excursions into Drum and Bass and Jungle
This EP comes from an obsession for drum and bass that slowly grows to this day. The driving tempos and aggressive drums go well with my personality.
Glass Eye is an expression of what kinds of eyes we have. Do we have eyes of darkness, or eyes of clarity? Explore the Universe is a message I wish more people would jump on board for. To many people just grow old and die. I have met so many that are totally content to just stop learning, and to many youth have no idea what they want to learn, so they choose to waste their time instead of figuring it out. I find this puzzling, there are so many people that claim boredom! This is completely absurd, so the track is an expression of what I think is a mega cool experience. I'll let you tackle "Watch Out" and "Beneath".

# 3 CHiptune Adventures
AWESOME ART by Shane Goudy
This was a very fun project. One of the main goals was to use a tracker to do the compositions (with the exception of fire run, which was composed for a game that never got released). Melodic composition, music theory, and Hexadecimal all became new beasts!
I have a number of drum and bass style tracks in their but wanted to include some of the other branches of chiptune, while I don't cover them all, I think there is a fair verity. I stayed away from FM as a general rule, so it is early chiptune influenced, with the exception of the drums. Some of these were made in a school library while working on my laptop and headphone and helping friends with math, such as "March On", while others were made on my home rig. I must say, The Creepers Hall is one of my favorites in this work. Hand drawn Song is so named because the main sounds where drawn by hand (mouse really).

# 4 Trip hop - Omniscient
This EP started a couple years ago and is the result of me going through and sorting files. I went through a trip hop/scary beat type phase and decided to revisit, remix and remaster 4 of the tracks I had created. At this time I had just discovered the magic of samples and was seeking to create "chill" beats that were more about mood as opposed to intellectually engaging (though I was not seeking to make something boring either, but you get the point.) Some at one point where scheduled to receive vocals, but this obviously never happened, and so I just enjoy them for the beats they are. =)
