Troisnyx's News

Posted by Troisnyx - September 14th, 2017


I got taken to hospital for a few hours on Sunday (the urgent care centre to be precise) when the doctors suspected I had pleurisy, because I had chest pains and it hurt me even to sit still or to breathe or to cough. After testing me negative for the worst possible scenarios -- deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism -- they concluded that it was an inflammation of the chest muscles, and rest and painkillers would help ease recovery.

I'm finding it hard to keep my pitch straight because of the phlegm inside me, that is proving impossible to come out at this stage. I cannot force it to come out, not even with a hot shower in the morning.

I have two solo pieces, one of them being vocal Re:Reveris, and I'm determined to release it, and my mind is at this stage where concentrating on other things is almost impossible without Re:Reveris being released. And, of course, I cannot record because my voice is wavering and this bloody phlegm won't fucking go.

IT HAS BEEN TWO FUCKING WEEKS.

Fuck this shit already. Those who said summer colds are the worst ain't felt nowt yet.

Happened about 6+ years since I set foot on Newgrounds, but it does seem that everyone does have their day. Eeeey, tá mé go hiontach. Go raibh maith agat, NG!

 


 

So, a warm welcome if you're on my page for the first time. Feel free to browse things I've submitted -- audio, art, newsposts, whatever. I'm not good at introductions, and I've spoken at length about myself in previous posts.

As the thumbnail suggests, I'm primarily a musician, and I do some ethereal and uplifting stuff a lot of the time. Meep. Oh, and I meep a lot. Meep meep meemeemeep.

In the last post I wrote about projects in progress. This time I want to tease a bit more, with cover/sleeve artwork for two which are either partly there, or near completion.

Attention @TMM43. ^_-

NB: The artwork for Re:Reveris' vocal version is a prototype of the Project Chaplaincy title screen; I'd been doing many title screen prototypes over the years. I thought I'd use it, just as a throwback to the place in which I stayed during my time at university, the people whom I knew there who have since been scattered due to their life's calling.

So what am I working on, given that I concluded a massive project just a few days back? (By the way, this particular link leads to Mio/Homura's music video, which I also mentioned in my FP'ed previous post because it's awesome. YOU SHOULD GO SEE IT.)

Well, these:

  • In the immediate future, I'm scoring two animations by @Wondermeow. I was ill for a short while but now, I seem to have recovered, so I might as well start on them now.

 

  • A collaboration with @TMM43, which will take its time -- and it is a remake + vocal version of something I've already submitted to NG

 

  • A collaboration with @ProudAardvark, and this will be something new. I'll be providing vocals to his music.

 

  • The joy from Mio/Homura's music video prompted a few friends of mine to collaborate with me on Akiko Shikata-like stuff, but methinks it'll take a life of its own rather than be inspired by anyone. Most of the collaborators on this project are not from Newgrounds -- they are from a band called harmonicblend. @Phyrnna is in on the project too, and we're all keeping our eyes peeled as to how this'll go.

 

  • Starting next month, the musicians will begin work on the Audio Portal 15th Anniversary Audio Drama, so I'll be handling what projects take the least time / have the highest priority, and then take my time with the rest.

 

  • I still haven't forgotten that I need to do O City That Was Not.

 

In other news, Seán and I have been discussing what our next big project should be. I'm not going to give away any pointers as to what it might be, but I assure you, it's gonna be as awesome as Mio/Homura is.

After about four hours upload time and an entire night and morning of processing, I am proud and happy to present to all of you the music video for Mio/Homura EXTEND ver.!

 

I had alluded to it in previous posts, even sharing a few shots from the recording day back on 20 July, but I never would have dreamt, back when I composed the original in 2012, that it would look this good, and be an immense source of joy and positivity to all involved. What started off as a love-it-or-hate-it song from the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch became... well, basically, this.

Big up to Seán and my friends at Soundskills / The Alison Project for helping me make this come to fruition. We made a great team! And a special big up to Seán for getting me to remake this song in the first place. Were it not for you, this probably may not have seen the light of day. Thank you. I love you.

 


 

With that, I'm also taking the opportunity to announce that troisnyx.co.uk is LIVE AT LAST!

3805804_150360462032_TriquetraSite.png

I had finished the redesign of this website some time back, even going to Soundskills to watercolour some site assets (yes, a good portion of the images you see there are my own watercolours, but not all of them are). However, the home page was going to feature the Mio/Homura music video, and without it, the website could not go live. I'd sent the odd sneak peek to one or two friends, but that was about it. Anyway, it's back up. Happy browsing!

 


 

If you're here and hearing Mio/Homura for the first time, then follow the journey:

It's no secret that I actually struggle between 'useless' and 'abusive' reviews, especially on those copyrighted tracks that get uploaded for Geometry Dash.

I'd better be more careful next time.


Posted by Troisnyx - August 16th, 2017


Seeing as the video version of Mio/Homura is not yet finished and there's still a video I alluded to on Twitter some time back, I thought I'd upload it onto my own channel, and here it is!

This is me at Soundskills for July's open mic. I discovered this video on the desktop of one of the Soundskills computers, asked permission from the person who runs it -- Chris Davis -- as he's the person who also recorded this video, asked if I could upload it, and he said yes. So here it is. ^_^ And for those of you who were wondering whether that was me in previous songs... yes, that is me. I have a relatively vibrato-less voice. Some might even consider it "flat;" I'm aware of that. It cites me as Annette, but not as Troisnyx just yet. Hm...

Bear in mind that while I was classically trained on piano, I now have no regular access to one. So I basically had one or two days' worth of practice, and very little preparation or warning as to what I was going to play. This was also the first time I performed Street Lights, a song of mine which I'm aiming to finish sequencing, but still haven't. Well, you've heard it here first; I finally have a new lyrical song. (New-ish.)

When I finally release Street Lights, whenever that'll be, I'll post more about the details behind that song and how it came to be. For now, I hope you all enjoy the video!

 


 

In other news, a lot seems to have been taken out of me musically and I find myself in a position where, yet again, I have to keep piercing through the wall of lack of inspiration / lack of motivation before being able to do anything at this point. So, that's where I am. I'm struggling quite badly.

Done for a friend who is leaving for Oxford U to join their chaplaincy team. It was really hard taking photos of it, and I just couldn't wait to share it with the lot of you. Naturally, it's a comedic parody, and Seán (@IrishChieftain) wrote most of the dialogue to this; I only changed one frame or two.

Farewell, my friend. I'm gonna miss you.


Posted by Troisnyx - August 9th, 2017


First of all, I finally released my earliest Soundskills recording, of a song that I wrote that dates back to 2007. It's called Somewhere Out There. Those of you who have seen my open mic videos may have come across this song before.

I sang, played keyboard and drums for this recording, and it was in October or November of 2015 that it was started. So basically, I waited a year and three quarters to release this, in part due to not being able to cite my friends' roles properly. I had one friend do bass guitar, another do lead and rhythm guitar, and another do mixing. Incidentally, it was the first proper recording of me on drums, and at the time, I wasn't really confident. See, I barely managed to keep time; I feel the groove was simple, perhaps even simplistic.

Now that I have a kit and am able to practise on a regular basis, it helps build my confidence a bit. I feel vulnerable playing drums; this is something I mention over and over again. The friend who did the mixing on Somewhere Out There is also my drum tutor at this point, so it's opening up to me things I never would have thought of doing as far as percussion goes.

My body needs time to get used to long practice and playing sessions. I often feel tired. It'll be worth it in the end; I knew that I was always meant to gravitate to drums and percussion but now, this seems to have been validated at last. The rhythm tends to be my prayer, and my means of expressing myself. I don't really know how else to express it, and I know I want to say a lot more. It is something sacred to me, and something worth sharing with everyone I meet...

One day I'll put up a new recording. I'm not sure when, or in what context it'll be. But when that day comes, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

For the last ten years, it's been me putting in the graft and not getting much out of it. I was determined never to draw again, and @Sabtastic approached me and spoke with me. She, too, had felt what I'd felt of being completely let down by people and events.

I'm going to do what she's done; no contests. I will admit that not drawing has helped me to concentrate more on the music, but every so often, the Sharpies beckon to me. If I put up anything from here on out -- and that's a big IF -- it's only for me. I have been learning fast for someone who started out here on NG as not knowing proportions, depth, and most art theory apart from colour theory, and I intend for that to continue, if at a reduced pace right about now due to the intensifying music work.

As someone who had suffered quite badly as a result of my parents picking apart and tearing up my music, and mocking my art (both on a frequent basis), I don't often know the best way of working through and around the pain. But I don't want my art, or my music for that matter, to get the usual art college snobbery shown at it. I'm not that kind of person.

Any recognition from here on out is going to be classed as a bonus to work that I feel compelled to do. Work that may not bring reward, but cannot be stopped due to the pull it has on me from time to time. The act of sharing anything with others is bound to bring pain, as it has with my childhood and adolescence, but I cannot create art for the sake of myself alone. It is work that may not bring reward, but I feel ought to be shared anyway.
