Assorted music plans…

Posted by Ad on December 28, 2009

The thing is, I have a lot of ideas for albums. I’m just not sure I’m pro enough to really make one. I’m just throwing this out there for the ppl that know this stuff:

Am I good enough yet?

By that I mean, do I have the tools and the skills and the knowledge and discerning enough ears to make a commersial album, be that one intended for licencing or for listening? If, I don’t need to do the mastering myself.  What do you think?

In any case, I’ve also got plans for a website, need a few demos for it. Since I want to compose for games, I want to show I can do different styles. I have a few ideas, but what do you think would make good examples/be good challenges for me?

All this assuming I have readers. 😀

Mass Media Constant

Posted by Ad on April 13, 2009

My half-acquaintance from ocremix zircon has been in ocremix news lately, making ocremix headlines (well, a thread title) by having a track used prominently in Heroes on TV. Licencing ftw.

Been listening a lot to Mass Media Constant, his latest album a bit lately. Not very expensive, and all cool tracks, definitely something I’ll try to learn from.

This post isn’t all about zircon, Steffan Andrews was interviewed by ocremix staff and I realized we’re about the same age. He’s done music for video games, films, and TV. zircon is younger and has also got some impressive credits, and skills.

And then there’s me, with little or no professional credits, little or no pro-level skill, little or no music education… Makes me feel like I’m a bit too late to try to get into the industry.

With music having never been cheaper to produce, there is an abundance of music, and everything is more or less available everywhere anyway thanks to the net. I should be smart and pick a profession that won’t run out of jobs any time soon. But I want to work in music.

“Those who can’t do, teach” some say. Hm…
