Snow finally comes to NC in a decent volume for the first time in like 6 years. This type of weather caon inspire someone to make a song *hint* *hint*. As for delays on posting.... Beatmania has almost taken over my daily routine and RPG's are taking another chunk now. Working on new songs still, but taking a little more time. Started one yesterday that is kind of prog. house trance. Sounds awesome. Beatmania has made me find a large passion for house music with songs like "Madrugada" and "Evergreen". I love DJ Troopers!


As of now my New Year's resolution is....

A new music account!!

2008-12-28 20:34:28 by Ryukenjin

It will be posted in my websites part of my profile. |Note that all the music that I will upload in the future will not be downloadable on it (listenable though), but rather here when I upload it on newgrounds. As a new account opening I uploaded "Dragon (radio edit)" and a new song called "Melody of the Wind". Check it out if you have time and an account with them (friend me if you want and tell me if you like to be on my personal friends account on it too because I like to keep tabs at times with people on it).

If you don't see the link (or some may be lazy... like me sometimes) here it is...

Merry Christmas Eve!

Now that I have improved my skills alot over this year I can upload the songs that I finished! I am going to start uploading alot when the first of the year gets here and make even better songs in the years to come.

As an early Christmas present I will upload one of my newer tracks that I started a week or so ago, only it is a radio edit version of it so it is stopped after 2 minutes and so seconds. It is called "Dragon" and it sounds awesome to me, so lets see what you think about it. I will message some of those that have left me comments and those that have me on their favorite artist list to tell them when I start mass-uploading my songs (though I think it might be limited to 2 a day).

Some of my newer songs that I will be uploading soon are as follows:

Dragon (original mix)
Alpha
Beta
Zoneout (Beyond-the-Beyond mx) note: thanks Novarri
Anthem (for Novarri mix) side note: thank you again Novarri
Orion (Full)
Entranced
Winter Night
Melody of the Wind

These are some of them that WILL be posted soon. |Entranced I started on yesterday and I am nearly 2 minutes into it (not to mention I picked up a few new skills as I worked on it yesterday too, yay for Matt!).

I will now upload the radio edit of "Dragon". I hope you enjoy it and my newer tracks when I upload them. Sorry for the..... 8 month absence or so, but I hope my new music will be worthwhile. Have a Merry Christmas!

First post.... after a year (a reflection of a year of music making)

2008-05-05 19:20:43 by Ryukenjin
Updated

A little over a year has passed since I started on Newgrounds. It first started with me and my friend John (or bboyneedle on newgrounds) starting a small group called BGM. We didn't get to make music together too long because of his personal life made it difficult for us to continue. Even though we havn't done music together for a while, we went out with a big bang with our song "Countdown (full)".

As we stopped as a colaboration group a year ago, I have been hard at work (and play too) with work at Jungle Rapids, working on music on the computer to improve skills, and also...... playing videogames on the side. As time went by I seemed to develop a certain style that defines me as a music artist, and I continued to make music better as I made more songs. When I got new games I took time to play them, but when I got back to the computer I increased my skill... somehow, but I would get new ideas to add to my songs and get soexcited. I listen to some of my old songs and say "Hey, I did a good job on that one", or I would say "That wasn't too great". The only thing that matters is that I keep trying to make songs better as I go on so more people would recognise my skill at music making.

At first I cared heavily at the rating thatI would get for my songs and wouln't like when people would give 1's or 2's on a song that had a very good feel to it (*cough* *cough* people zero bombing Orion (short) even though it sounded great), but those days are over. I don't care how you rate my songs now, but remember... if you rate a song low alot and it gets taken off of the site due to score, you may be responsible for getting rid of an amazing song that everyone likes (although that may not be the case for some songs).

If you have been keeping tabs on me I thank you, but lately my internet has been working...... well.... not working at all, so I had to use the other computer for writting this and checking other websites and keeping tabs with my friends mostly. I havn't been uploading songs because I have gotten alot of new games (about 12 or 13), so I have been playing them alot (especially Mana Khemia).

Some bright news is that I havn't stopped making music, nor have I thought about it. I have been at hard, hard work on FL Studio and waitingfor a good time to post my songs. Weekends seemto be the best time to upload songs, so once my internet gets repaired in my room I will be back on AIM, Myspace, and Newgrounds.

Some works in progress right now are as follows:

Zoneout (remix) - Original artist : Novarri
Orion (Full) - Original artist : .... me of course, or Matt (Ryukenjin on Newrounds)
Celestial Tears (2008 mix) - Original artist : Ryukenjin

There are 3 others that I am working on that don't have a name yet. There are 2 songs that I plan to remake from DDR (including a remix of the "A" that I made). When my computer gets internet again and I go on AIM I will ask bboyneedle if I can remake "Countdown (Full)", even though I am sure he will say something along the lines of "Go for it!" or something like that. 1 last thing.... I FINALLY LEARNED HOW TO USE THE VOCORDER IN FL STUDIO!!!!

In closing (after a post with the length of a year), a year has passed, I have gotten more mature, my songs have matured, and my attitude on life has shifted up and down.... and it is only the beginning. Who knows what may happen this year.... maybe BGM will reunite for a few songs or more..... maybe I will become a featured atrist.... maybe I will make an amazing song that gets alot of attention and downloads and scores.... maybe I will make new collaborations..... but thats the thing with life.... you never know what will happen the next day.... but sometimes... that is a good thing..... here's to another year worth of music making.

If you read all of this I thank you, even thoughit is mostly a reflection of the last year. Feel free to comment on it however you like (you can even tell me that I should stop making music all together... because that just won't happen and that is just wasting your time). Feel free to check out my music if you havn't. Most of my new stuff is a sign that I have matured music wise (except "Dark Side of the Moon"). Check out bboyneedle's music on newgrounds too (especially since he uploaded "Countdown (Full)"). Thanks again
