Year 3 Semester 1 Portfolio

My first semester of my third year – this being the fifth semester overall – is now over. It’s been oddly “easy-going”, but still highly challenging. There’s a sense that I have possibly not undertaken as much as I could have done this time around, that I’ve done a certain amount less composition in terms of my studies than previous semesters. I have still been constantly at work, it seems, although quite frankly it has all flown by. Though I have much to talk about, this portfolio still feels a little lacklustre in terms of specially prepared musical content. Many miscellaneous projects have been conducted in the meantime, however.

Nevertheless, here’s downloads to everything I’ve done over this last semester:

The Ever Shrine

Here’s a little bitesize YouTube update for y’all – and a friendly reminder to go and check out my latest BandCamp album 30in30-4! The track featured here is the finale of the album, composed at the very end of the month-long challenge I set myself to write one new track a day all throughout January – the track was composed in two parts (both are included in the video) over the remainder days of 29-30 January 2016. I think it’s a fitting closer, long and varied and complex as per my usual “me doing me” style.

The adventures of “the adventures of”…

Caution: first world problems ahead.

For what it’s worth I am aware that YouTube has a slew of problems far more severe than what I go into here. I exaggerate my annoyance anyhow. That’s kind of what you do on a blog, though, right?

 

So, as it happens, a lot of people play, or at least have played through one time, The Adventures of Square. It’s really cool to see new videos and reviews continuing to go up on the youtubes even if it’s more of a person playing through just the first level. It’s enjoyable for the most part, or at the very least interesting to watch different people’s commentary and play styles.

I have to keep up with this sort of thing, so naturally I’m typing “adventures of square” into YouTube virtually once a fortnight.

So pray tell, YouTube…
