Important: Phenomer.net = Phenomer dot dead

It would seem that Phenomer.net, the filespace I used to upload all of my stuff, has gone down permanently – meaning my overbloated file repository, which has, for a number of years, been painstakingly provided and maintained by the brilliant Wartorn, has moved. He did a great job with the move and now all that …

Epic MIDI time: “The Godhood Suite”

So this is something that I’ve been working on since October last year. Like many of my projects, I took a lot of breaks from it, so it’s hard to determine exactly how long I spent on this, overall. However, it is without question my most intense and ambitious musical venture ever. It’s a progressive …

Adrenaline effin’ Mob

Watch this video and tell me this band isn’t made of awesome. There are several reasons why you’ll probably have a hard time: (1) Adrenaline Mob is a heavy metal supergroup consisting of Symphony X vocalist Russell Allen and Dream Theater ex-drummer Mike Portnoy. These guys are pretty much icons within the world of metal, …

Word of the day: dearth

dearth Noun (plural: dearths) A period or condition when food is rare and hence expensive; famine. (by extension) Scarcity; a lack or short supply. I literally only just discovered this word a few weeks ago, but since then it seems to have been popping up everywhere in the articles, forums, video clips and whatnot that …

YouTube update: Piano improv

A few days ago I recorded myself doing some impromptu chord sequences… some of which sounded kinda good, some of which sounded sorta meh. Check it out below, anyways. I’m no Jordan Rudess (lord, no), but I aim to get better with further practice on the theory side of music, and the uploading of more …

I am terrible

So you guys are probably wanting to know what crazy crud I’ve been up to. To be honest, I wish I could say that I’ve been really dynamic and awesome and I’ve been having a gay old time in the land down under enjoying endless success and self-satisfaction. It’s kinda my fault. I’m just not …

YouTube update 28/04/12

I uploaded three new tracks to my YouTube channel. Even if I say so myself, they’re all pretty killer in their own little ways. Find them below. 😀 “Liquid Luck” ______________________________________________________________________________ “The Cry” ______________________________________________________________________________ “Scattered Ashes”

Bad hair year

So, as of landing in Australia (30th November 2011), I decided to grow my hair long. It is a nightmare. Hair actually takes a long time to grow. Like, long. I was half-expecting to be sporting the Jesus look by now. Instead, I’m starting to look like the 2006 version of Mike Portnoy. With the …

Yay!

We’ve emmigrated from OptusNet to Telstra BigPond, and finally have the freedom to browse the internet ENDLESSLY. We will be hard-pressed to let our new 200GB/month allowance run dry, but I think we’ll give it a damn good go. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’VE GOT YOUTUBES TO WATCH. …Incidentally, this explains my absence from …
