Hey guys. TroisNyxEtienne [say trwa-nix-eh-tien] here. Alternatively, you may call me TNE.

After having submitted my track for the Newgrounds CD project and after having contributed a T-shirt design, I do realise that it's awfully late, and we have about 1 hour and 15 minutes before the results are announced.

I place it all in the good Lord's hands right now - whatever the outcome was, whether or not the track got in, I resign myself. I'm aware that by the time the results are announced, I'll be fast asleep, and I'll be checking those results at 9:00-ish across the pond (which is 4-something in the morning for you guys). I can say this for sure - making the track was fun, and not solely fun: it was something I looked forward to, and doing this with the help and support of my friends from the university, from the chaplaincy and from Kingdom of Herts has been wonderful. That song stretched me to the limit, at least at the time I wrote it.

I remember how, when in the midst of completing the music on FL Studio 10, my PC had this awful overheating problem (dusty hardware -___-), and I had to rely on my friend's PC instead... I was glad when I got mine back, though it took me a week and some £45 to get it sorted! Then came the point where we had to find a place to record the voices. We started in one of the group study rooms in the library. Then when we realised how bothersome it was to us and to others, we proceeded to Merlyne's room, where I did the rest of the vocals for the song.

Now, I listen to it and I feel it's a mixed bag. But I guess people who are either self-critical, or want to constantly improve themselves, may feel the same way. May. I'm not saying they will. There's always the possibility is all. I can't say I'm self-critical, but in hindsight, whatever I do now seems to be better than whatever I first did. Although this isn't always the case.

My song is the song of Kingdom of Herts. Our song is called Juventud.

It's almost time for me to lay me down to sleep. If anyone should come across that track at all (in any manner possible), please, do be so kind to let me know.

I bid all of you cheerio and goodnight.
May the best men in the NG CD project win!

UPDATE 12.11.2011 1:36 GMT : I did not get into the final Newgrounds CD project, but I'm glad I at least tried. I'm glad Christo, Mark and I at least tried.

This is a shout to DaMPCer50210, Levus, Flaminglog, SuperDragonMasters and Buckyboy.

All of us handle Mario Paint Composer 2.0 (or its derivatives) with different skill levels, and we're part of a commune known as the Mario Paint Hangout.

I was introduced to the Hangout after winning my first Original Composition Contest early this year, and from time to time I've kept track of their submissions. Of all of us, I'm the least skilled in Mario Paint Composer 2.0, but I get away with (and without being prideful) musical competence. BuckyBoy, SuperDragonMasters and Loggy have both skill on MPC and musical competence. DaMPCer... well, I'm yet to see his original works, but he's G-majored several very good works from others. Much to our delight.

I know it's been a while since I spoke to you guys, but I'm glad to see you on Newgrounds.

Granted, one of the songs has been submitted for the Newgrounds CD project. But anyway.

Some time before this, I announced that Merlyne, Mark212 and I banded together to form a music group known as Kingdom of Herts. The two of them have not submitted much to NG (Mark has done one solo Flash project so far), but it doesn't matter - ultimately, our project is going to be 75% outside NG. I say 75% because if I were to reveal the contents of the album, you might recognise two songs, and a third might be recognisable by users who submitted their content to the Newgrounds CD.

The album title has been confirmed: 'A Story Told in Songs of Faith'.

At this point, two songs are being worked on and three are complete. I feel as excited about the whole album project as Mark and Merlyne do.

We've decided to have all net profits from the release of the album go to a charity of our choice. Which one it is, I'm not yet sure.

I'm also aware that our genre of music (which is semi-liturgical) may not sit too well with everyone. I took the plunge and decided we should do it anyway. ^_- If you're into stuff which is liturgical, or reminiscent of praise and worship, and you'd like to anticipate the release of that album, I welcome your feedback.

It's a bit of trouble I've been having on Newgrounds since the first time I uploaded audio.

No matter how untransparent the GIF is (yes, even when the BG is all black with no layers, nothing), whenever I try to put a 46x46 GIF as an album image thing for any song of mine, it keeps on failing with this message:

Error: The GIF you used is transparent.

This picture below is one of the pictures I used in an attempt to get my songs to have a thumbnail image to them. Does that even look transparent to you?

Problepeño much?

Merlyne, Mark212 and I have started a music group together, and we've decided to call ourselves Kingdom of Herts.

(Herts is pronounced 'hearts', because the 'Hert' in 'Hertfordshire' is pronounced just like 'heart'.)

So the three of us have been working behind the screen for the big surprise *hint hint*. If it doesn't get released on Newgrounds, rest assured, we'd release it elsewhere.

I'm getting caught up with coursework too, and that is delaying my music production by quite a bit.

So here I am, just checking in, and moseying along once I have checked in.

This came to me as a rather pleasant surprise.

The beginning of Arise Once More...
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /439289

...was used in a film which landed Daily Fifth Prize, known as Let's Creep!

My thanks go to DingoWalleyStudio for featuring my work, even if in part! I'm really honoured! This is my first ever Flash feature (chronologically speaking), and I'm glad and grateful that my audio is going somewhere.

On a related note, I must make things clear about the usage of my songs. I'll be more than willing to have my work featured in E- and T-rated submissions, but not beyond that (unless the Flash creators e-mail me about the purpose of their work). Personally speaking, I would not like my work to be associated with anything utterly subversive. Things like Let's Creep!, on the other hand, have come to me as a pleasant surprise not only because of the rating, but also because of the content, message and delivery of the Flash work itself.

Completely unrelated side note: I have an album idea at this time, as well as a special submission to finish for all of you on Newgrounds. I have two weeks to finish this special thing. What it is, I shall not tell. Some of you might find out eventually, but I'm keeping it hidden from Newgrounds for now. Please, stay tuned, and enjoy the music!

Also, I would love to thank everyone who's reviewed my works in recent times, particularly from the Review Request Club. ^_^

First Talmadennoù,

then Battle Drums,

and now A Fight For My Honour!

I don't know what the thing is about me and drums (or drum samples) - when I get my hands on a new drum sample, I have a tendency to play around with it a lot on FL Studio. Granted, the drum is my favourite instrument. But because of the amount of songs in that... how do you say it - that 'tribal' genre that I have been producing, at least one person has actually asked me if the drum really is for me.

Well, I don't know. I haven't played drums in a year because I don't have access to a kit (in case you're wondering, that display pic of mine is taken from a year or two ago), so if I feel like drumming, I sometimes resort to FL Studio, and this is pretty much the result of it.

To you, the reader: I'll be grateful if you do check these out. I really don't know what to say about this anymore.

My major submission is not even ready yet.
And it's not even going on NG *hint hint*.

For starters, I've finally set up my Art section over the past few days. Now some of these works have either been done by hand and edited digitally, or drawn on DeviantArt Muro (yes, I love that programme a lot ^_^). I tend to use Muro a lot more for concept art or rough sketches, though I sometimes even handle the first round of colouring there. And I am a very, very slow artist - I have ideas for fully coloured works, but they can take ages to handle knowing my colouring speed and my attention span.

Art aside, we have these songs -

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /443668

The first one is a Hymmnos, whilst the second one is a piece involving rain. I did work on the second one a lot more - the first one was done completely on a whim.


I'm on and off the audio portal, and I've taken to reviewing works from newer or lesser known artists, and that probably explains the influx in audio favourites. Without being funny, you do listen to their work and you do wish that they were featured somewhere, perhaps in an outstanding Flash submission. That's pretty much what I felt with the unfeatured songs which landed into my favourites. And truly, though not everyone may like these songs, I'm aware that 1) tastes may differ, 2) people may not point out things that music theorists do. I'm doing my part to talk about them here - please, don't overlook them for too long. Feature their works in your Flash works, and you'll have everybody talking, and you'll leave these artists happy.

There always is room for love to be spread. I am going to help in a way which I can.
