I just started uploading my solo piano stuff to YouTube. Go check out my channel and tell me if it's trash or if it's cool.
I might still upload to Newgrounds occasionally if I do anything outside of piano, but I will mainly be uploading to YouTube.
I'm a composer. Hi.

To the few people who might be wondering or who once wondered why I stopped uploading here’s what’s up. I’ve been attending a university for music, studying piano and composition, so I’ve pretty much had no time to upload anything, let alone check the site itself. I’ve composed a lot of pieces since my last upload and recorded a lot of them (mostly piano, but some instrumental pieces with actual performers which was pretty cool to do). Newgrounds is where I first started uploading my compositions to, which were at the time very experimental and honestly it’s kind of weird to listen to some of them now compared to what I’ve done in university. I’ve always enjoyed the site and the community that occupies it, so I’ve always felt kind of sad returning to my page knowing I didn’t have time to upload anything. At the same time I wasn’t sure if the music I was composing even had an audience on this site, so I wasn’t sure if I should even spend the time to start uploading again considering the style I’ve begun writing in. But I’ve realized that if there’s even a few people who enjoy it, then why not upload what I’ve been doing? So I’ve decided to start uploading the pieces I compose and have composed for university anyway. Especially now that I have a break until I start my third year. So look out for some new music this coming week and the next,

So after a notoriously long time, I'll finally be uploading again. I've been preparing for university auditions as well as getting my pieces written into sheet music for my portfolio. The first of my uploads will be a piece by Erwin Schulhoff called Chanson, which you can find in my audio page. This is going to be the first piece I perform during my audition, though I do not play it perfectly here, I will upload it performed more adequately later...

These are pieces I intended on sending as my university application for the composition program, I have never worked harder on any piece before, and I poured in countless hours into them. They are all played by me on piano with violin and bass samples at the same time.
LOOK FORWARD TO IT!!!!

I regret to inform that I won't be posting compositions for awhile, a few opportunities have made themselves apparent so I'll be working on getting those things settled first.
I'm also in my final year of highschool,and studying for my RCM exams (just got a piano mentor 3 months ago, pretty much my first real teacher) so I'm going to be absent for quite sometime.
I'm still composing but this time more professionally rather than an improvisation of ideas i thought of over the years (which are pretty much what my current compositions are).
feel free to comment anything, I usually check my page every 1-2 days
but for now, have a good one.

Thanks to the East West 50% off sale for Easter weekend, I was able to snag a copy of Pianos Gold Edition! So I'll be uploading me playing some stuff to each of the pianos in the VST, which I'll explain more about it and the piano sample I'm using when I upload them! (Which will be sometime next week).
EDIT: FINALLY GOT IT WORKING!!!!!
so, apparently my laptop did not have a disc drive (anymore that is.....) so I had to ask to borrow an external one (which does not read and write data nearly as fast as an internal) the installation took 3 hours, in which after words it was another 3 hours of fiddling and getting it to work (seems like my computer also doesn't have enough RAM either :/ ) anyways, it now works though I don't wanna use FL to record since their is audio clipping and irregular velocity and repetition problems when I play as well as it uses way to much of my RAM and CPU.
does anyone know someway I can record the sound on my computer, with asio4all on, while I use pianos gold through PLAY?

This is just a quick update just to say that I am currently working on my first piano concerto!!! So I will not be posting much in the upcoming days (orginals that is, remixes, midi sequences, etc., will still be released whenever I have time to comple them) as I want to focus all my energy on this composition. I've currently composed about the first 21 seconds, which has taken me about 1 week (25 hours actual time spent) meaning that it probably won't be done for quite awhile... :( but not to worry! I'll still be uploading content every now and again, this just means no completely orginal content, just remixes, midi sequences, etc.,
