Entry #260

At last month's open mic

2017-08-16 11:13:15 by Troisnyx

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.

Beautiful! Look at you go! :D Love it! I'm sorry to hear that about the last part of this post though :( hang in there. Sometimes we all need a well-deserved break.

Troisnyx responds:

I will do. Nothing on the scale of Mio/Homura for the rest of the year, peem. X_X

That was an amazing performance! I had no idea you could play the piano so well. Great singing as we're used to, too. :)

Wishing you luck getting through the lack of inspiration / motivation, can be rough. Thanks for the tag so I got to see/hear this. Meep meep!

From someone whose heard the song before: i actually lost it when i heard "somewhere out there". What a wonderful choice to end the performance with.

count me in with the rest of the crowd - ((some claps and whistle applause from me at my bedroom office))
