Writing this not only as a means of informing people, but also as a means of keeping myself on track. There are many things that I need finished or would like to see finished, but I think I'll narrow it down to a few.
- To begin, I have mentioned Cosmocrystal II in a previous newspost of mine. Ocurp Omnis, the teaser / work in progress for which is on Newgrounds, is now FINISHED. I still have two more tracks to write for this doujin album. And for one of these, which I am working on now, called FLOW_CRAYNELSPHERE/., I am channelling the likes of Queen and Billy Joel. Last year I thought MioHomu was my magnum opus. It's likely that Craynelsphere might surpass it. Both of these need doing by July.
- I am in a band, called The Just Numbers. I play drums and ukulele and do backing vocals, though it does appear that I may be playing more things as time passes. It's a three-piece band, doing classic rock and blues and things along these lines. Mainly originals. My role in the band is strictly nonprofit, I'm not earning a penny out of this. Any proceeds will be split between the bassist and the guitarist. Some of you may have heard said guitarist's work before -- he's a friend of mine, and his name's Greg Slater. If you haven't heard Somewhere Out There, there he is playing his heart out on that guitar of his while I am hesitant playing drums in said track, because that would be the first time I've ever recorded a drum kit in my entire life. Our first gig is on Friday, 8 June. If you are in Preston, or in the Northwest and are able to make it to Preston and want to come see, feel absolutely free! Details on The Just Numbers' Twitter page.
- I have one solo song in the works. When I say 'solo,' I don't mean it strictly. I mean, this is all going to be me again, even if I'm self-backing. Those of you who are subscribed to my YouTube page would probably know of a song called Street Lights, the short version of which I performed at an open mic once. I have finished the instrumental backing to this song but I will only return to it once I have finished everything related to Cosmocrystal II.
- Once all this is done, I intend to rework and remaster most of my vocal tracks.
That's what I see myself doing in the near future, I guess. So all that's going on. Apologies if you haven't heard much from me; I guess I've really been buried chest-deep in it and I am slowly working my way out.
