Presenting the new Asperges Me. This is my face when I sing. The video was recorded as a voice audition for Yasunori Mitsuda. Regardless of whether or not I get in, I am glad to have this video for posterity. <3

This is actually a revisiting of a song that was written for the 2012 NG Audio Deathmatch. I never thought the day would come when a video like this would be done. I never even dreamed of it.........

Thanks to Chris, Jason and Seán for helping me out with this. I need to credit you folks properly on the YouTube video soon...

I am proud to announce that Asperges Me, one of my 2012 Audio Deathmatch pieces, is being remade and will have a video recorded at Soundskills this afternoon (tomorrow for some of you).

Many of you have listened to the original, and some of you may remember reviewing it.

I look forward to sharing the end result of the video session with all of you soon.

Ooooohhhhh, irony is sweet. Very, very sweet indeed.

I FINALLY put up my lyrics video to the Ley Lines theme Light, Shine Down in a bid to entice listeners on YouTube to perhaps go check out the game. It probably isn't much, but it's better than nowt. : )

Sorry it took me so long. Video editor + connexion troubles and all sorts of things prevented me from putting anything up on YouTube -- I wanted better visuals than just a picture and some music.

In addition to all the musical work, I drew these images on MS PowerPoint (yes, you read that right). Hooking up a tablet and then opening PowerPoint adds on the Draw function, which, while buggy, does give a nice set of solid lines that I could use for sketching.

Hope you all enjoy it!

Hey everyone, Troisnyx here, and this is Ley Lines!

Back when I announced my 500 follower milestone I also skimmed over the fact that I'd been appointed composer for this game. How it happened still blows my mind, but this is the fruit of several months of hard work, from the part of the developers. The developers for this game sought me out both on Newgrounds and on my own webpage, and I saw the aesthetics of this game, I just got so compelled to say yes, and I wound up writing and singing and drumming.

The game is about a lone archer using multiple energies in a bid to restore the heart of Miria, an extremely powerful entity, which has been torn by war and misdeeds. This is a slightly more mature RPG platformer with puzzle elements.

Now, we are trying to get Ley Lines on Steam. If this game looks beautiful to you, please vote yes!

@TomFulp As much as I wish my art DID have that many reviews, I don't think that number is accurate.

Oh my. 500. Gosh, never thought I'd get there. Thanks, everyone. Just.... thank you so much.

 


So what's been going on?

There's a game for which I am writing music now called Ley Lines, and when I was shown an alpha video of it, I really liked what I saw. So far, composing music for this thing has been an enjoyable process. As more material about it gets revealed, I'll gladly reveal more about the composition process. 

Here is the alpha. As for concept art and development, I've found a blog that can be read here.

Also, a lot of Project Chaplaincy files that were lost back in 2014, which were found by Seán in March this year, are being restored. I'm already at the sixth file on that recently restored hard drive. So as a result, you'd see a lot of material being churned out by me.

Thirdly, Seán and I celebrate our engagement anniversary in two days. I am grateful to have him as a significant part of my life, and I long for the day when we finally get married.


 

EDIT: In light of 500+ followers, once my body recovers from its physical pains, I'll record that dance I was alluding to in a few earlier posts. That timbrel and those bells really need using.


Posted by Troisnyx - May 12th, 2016


finally found the account name of the person whose music I saw without signing in back in 2009, which effectively was my first time stepping into Newgrounds. That user's name is @ForbiddenMemory.

@CaptKirky did quite a bit of prompting to me when we spoke with each other over my earliest memories of NG, and somehow, I went to Wikia, which is where ForbiddenMemory and I met under different usernames. I knew that he had music of his own, and so I looked up his links. His Newgrounds page was listed, and I saw The Icy Lands, the very first music track I listened to on here. See, seven years ago the two of us were part of a Kingdom Hearts fanon project, and we imagined up our own characters and our own background music based on what we'd learnt from the few games released then -- KH1, Chain of Memories and KH2. Shortly after listening to his work, he pointed me to @TheWeebl, which then pointed me to Weebl's Stuff.

It took me 7 years, but now I finally remember. Time to update all those statements, forum posts and interviews where I completely forgot who it was that brought me to NG first.

I have a tambourine that doubles as a frame drum, bells and semi-tribal clothes. I yearn to put them to good use.

What's stopping me is that I'm really self-conscious about anything I do; I fear that I'm a horrible dancer, or otherwise not appealing in some way, shape or form. But I cannot help but think that this is something that is good for me to share. I have a deep passion for drums and dancing, and I want to use it healthily. Performing publicly is something I've always yearned to do, even if I'd been shamed for it in the past. Even if I am dancing alone, I don't want to be afraid of people seeing me......

Should I dance?

It's getting to that time of year again when people are asking, "when are the audio contests going to be held?". With the mention of audio contests comes the mention of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch, the Newgrounds Audio Underdogs contest, the Art-Inspired Music contest, the Newgrounds Music Triathlon... the list could go on, but I don't know what else is in store for us musicians this year.

The whole point of me writing this post, however, is not to state any chance of me taking part in any of these contests. (In fact, it's likely that I won't.) Rather, I want to encourage you folks to NEVER bring yourselves down. I suppose it's easy to help others with this, and not myself -- but a lot of us feel the same way. So let's encourage each other, instead of saying "no, there's no way in hell you or I could make this" for example.


 

Back in 2012 I took part in my first Audio Deathmatch, and my run there was one that surprised everyone present.

SERIOUSLY, HOW DO YOU WIN THIRD PLACE WITH THIS LOAD OF JUNK?

It's badly mixed, the mic quality is horrible, and at the best of times we'd probably get listener's fatigue. So what gives?

But that's my point -- you may not shine in one area, but you'll shine in another when it comes to music production. Never take yourself for granted, and don't let others do the same to you. Those closest to me keep reminding me of this, so it's only right that I should do the same. I didn't shine in mixing, but it seems the musicality of these pieces made up for it all.

As musicians, part of our work is to make the impossible possible. We manipulate sound waves in ways that perhaps others have not done before, or not attempted before. We live to prove critics and naysayers wrong. All those people who said that we wouldn't make it as musicians, we're engaging in this craft to prove them wrong. And perhaps, we might engage in experiments that result in pioneering works of art. Who knows what each musician can bring? People can hear talent and/or improvement and immediately sense it.

So if you are thinking of taking part in a contest, rule of thumb: do not be intimidated. If I had it in me to make the impossible possible with my run in the 2012 NGADM, why can't anyone else? You each stand as much of a chance as I did, even if scores and crowds of clamoring fans would like to think otherwise.


 

As I speak, two of my NGADM 2012 pieces are being remade -- Propter Te and Mio/Homura. The first is about 60% done, the other is about 40% done. A handful of people have asked for me to remake the other two submissions, Supplication and Asperges Me. I'll get to them in due course, I'm not sure when.

I'm still figuring out how to handle drums properly for Propter Te. There are times where I'm so disheartened and think that I'm one of the worst drummers there ever was. Now that probably isn't true, but it's what I've been made to think for many years. While I know that the drums for Propter Te can be reproduced by human hands, I'm struggling with it. Come Monday, I'd like to attempt to get it done......
