Everyone! The long awaited cover of the Ballad of the Wind Fish a.k.a. Song of Awakening, from the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, is FINALLY FINISHED!!!

If you would like to listen to it on Newgrounds and comment/review on it, please feel free to do so! This is where you should go.

Thanks for stopping by this post, and happy listening!

Ta for now,
T. x

For those of you who don't know or who are making sure, I used to go by the name TroisNyxEtienne. I switched to what can rightly be called my stage name.

In other news, I am currently recording the vocals for the Ballad of the Wind Fish / Song of Awakening cover, and it's going to be a lot of work. This is going to be another Enya-esque, Mylene Farmer-esque work, and...... while it is painful now, I really look forward to the end result. I will post it up on the front page, Twitter, Facebook, etc., etc., and PM those of you who have shown interest, once it is up.

Stay tuned!

Ta for now,

Click to take a gander on what it might be!

(And yes, I had to do that. The picture upload mechanism for NG isn't working on my computer.

I have quite recently updated my personal thread on the Art Forums once again, after a full year of inactivity. If you would like to take a look and post any comments, feel free to look at it here.

I recently hit 200 fans, or supporters, or what have you. While it isn't the biggest milestone there is on NG, it's definitely a small step forward, and I'm grateful to all of you for sticking around with me.

Thank you for your listens, comments, reviews, suggestions (via comments, PM or forum posts) on mixing and various other things I wouldn't have thought of. Special thanks to those of you who checked in on me, through comments, messages and even on Skype and other means, particularly during exam periods and those moments where I wasn't at my best, where circumstances battered me left, right and centre.

Now I did say on Peter Satera's WIP group on Facebook that I would not be releasing this, but I thought, 200 is a milestone; I might as well do something a little special. I recently finished another track for Project Chaplaincy (the bullet hell in progress) -- Amor Vincit Omnia -- and I guess that's my 200-subscriber-special. : )

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

In other news, I've recently been invited by Samulis, Nimble and SkyeWintrest to join a collaborative project of theirs. The project in question is Versilian Studios.

As you might probably tell, I'm part of said project now. I don't know what to expect, but I'll hope and pray for the best, and do what I can in the meantime.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

As was the case during last year's NGADM period, I will be away in Surrey for the Faith Summer Conference once again, between the end of this month and early August (five days/four nights). I'm really looking forward to it. ^_^ Not only will I be able to see my friends again, but I'd also be able to put things into perspective.

I remember a friend and I planning ceilidh entertainment for the last night of Summer Faith: an Irish step dance and bodhran accompaniment. (You can very well imagine who's playing the bodhran. ^_-) Whether or not this will happen, I won't force it -- if it happens, it happens. Regardless, I WILL be taking pictures and videos from those five days, and you can be assured of hilarity and madness.

Ta for now,

Not counting the one resit I have for September (Wills and Assignment of Estates, my earliest module), I have effectively finished the Legal Practice Course today. I've done my best for the last three exams, the final one being earlier this afternoon... and I leave the rest to God.

All that reading and those long hours in the library, spent alone and in the company of friends, all this is not in vain.

I know that quite a number of you checked in on me, especially during the exam periods and when I was being battered by remarks and circumstances, left, right and centre. Thank you, all of you, for your prayers, thoughts and company. I really appreciate it a lot. <3

...My headset only arrived in the mail this morning, when it was too late for me to submit anything to the AIM contest.

The NGMT is almost over, the Game Jam is taking place during the exam prep period, and the NGADM is taking place at a time when I won't be able to write songs.

Why does this have to happen to me... All I wanted was to write one song!

I might as well disappear, if this is what circumstances want me to do.

I imagine some of you, if not many of you, have missed this. Here is my music showreel. :D
Six songs in all, some of which you may be familiar with. At any rate, I'm glad to share this with all of you.

* * * * * * * * * * *

My exams begin on 1 July and end on 4 July. Prayers and good thoughts, please!

On that note, I have had a near-perfect run of the Legal Practice Course, and I'm truly grateful.

Because my exams are fast approaching, I am sitting the NGMT, the NGADM and the Game Jam out. If I don't get my headset within the next day or two, I am also sitting out the AIM Contest.

* * * * * * * * * * *

On a side note, one of my very personal sketches is up. I'm warning you, I say it's very personal for a reason. If you'd like to peek into it, here it is.

This is about the recording session I had on 30 May (see my previous news post for what the occasion was). The videos have all been converted to WMV, and I am now in editing stage. For some reason, Windows Movie Maker either doesn't recognise my source files, or thinks I have no more space left (when I have MUCH, MUCH MORE than that).

At any rate, if you'd like to take a look at all the takes, I've embedded the playlist for your perusal. In hindsight, I really enjoyed the dance takes, but I will humbly admit I wasn't the best on the bodhran. The dancing wore me out that I was especially bad in the last two drum recordings I did...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I will NOT be taking part in the NGMT until:

1) my headset woes are settled. All three headsets I have, two of which I use as fail-safes, are not working. I've ordered a new one and I am waiting for it to be sent to me in the mail.
2) two song commissions and my submission for the AIM contest are finished.

Given the fact that my final exams are in the first week of July, I may not even be taking part at all. Regardless of what happens, I will pray, hope and look ahead.

Hey everyone. I'll be doing a very special video recording tomorrow. There are two occasions I celebrate tomorrow -- it'll be the feast day of St Joan of Arc, one of the saints I look up to very much, and it will have also been my mother's birthday. Both are occasions I hold very dear to my heart.

What the recording is all about, I can't tell yet, but I hope that 1) whatever the weather, it'll turn out okay, and that 2) I may not be too much of a nuisance to my neighbours and the people passing by, doing this. At any rate, I hope and trust that you'll all enjoy it.

That being said, what with editing, file converting and possibly boosting the bass frequencies, I hope I may be able to get it up tomorrow evening.

EDIT 31.05.2013: I haven't begun editing yet, but from my stash of recordings from yesterday, here's a sneak peek.

EDIT 02.06.2013: I still haven't begun editing yet (I'll need to convert these files and screen-capture sections of it and then assemble them into an MV). However: if you'd like to see all the takes for this video, see them all here!
