My new album "Walking in Circles II" has been released. 13 Tracks, free to download. I also wrote out the Walking in Circles story in the long blogs section for anyone interested.


The Story of "Walking in Circles"

Hello. I'd like to share some details on the story of Walking in Circles, since I released a new album called "Walking in Circles II". Walking in Circles is a story idea I came up with back in around 2009 or 2010. It's about a man tryi...


Drifting Through My Imagination II (2022): Long title, yes. Good song? Also yes, probably. The album Walking in Circles II has been released. 13 rearrangements. Free to Download :)


Abstraction II (2022): Based on a really old composition I did called "Abstract ~for orchestra~". Sounds really really good. Not as good as the original but hey, those were different times :p It took me twice as long to work on this piece than any recent.


#Caturday Maya has been coming over to me and just sitting at my feet all proper and looking up at me like I have something to give her :P


Mazeophobia II (2022): Always remember to save often. You never know when the power will cut out. I didn't lose power thankfully, but I stopped work on the song and took a nap while the storm passed. Song came out pretty good, I feel.


Universe of Dreams II (2022): Bonus song in comments (when this posts on my end). I'm using this opportunity to take the best parts of the original versions of some of these songs and combining them with newer ideas. Coming out pretty cool.


Theory of Mind II (2022): I enjoy revisiting old songs. I think Walking in Circles II (album) is going to turn out awesome. For Theory of Mind, I changed a few notes to make it a more positive listen compared to the original.


Walking in Circles II (2022): I'm going to remake the album Walking in Circles (2011). I think I can create a definitive version with songs from both the original and Ad Infinitum I - Alphadeus (2012) albums.


Soothe and Groove (2022): Song for Spectrum III. At first I was thinking it was just a jam song, but it really grew on me and I like it very much. I think working on video game music remixes is improving my original music :) I hope you enjoy.


Alphadeus Cover - The Dawn (Contra Hard Corps): I'm trying not to become a hermit. I really am. I beat Bloodstained to the best of my ability. Had 99.90% of the map, took me hours to find the missing room :/ But I got it. I really like this type of game


I think the FFXI "Return Home" campaign ends today at around 11am eastern. I'm contemplating tossing them at least 1 month sub, and I want to do a world transfer. After reading up on it, I'll probably move to Bahamut, as Asura is very crowded.


Waking Nightmare (2017) [Raptor Lancer]: One of the coolest songs I've ever written. You ever fall asleep and have a dream loop of waking up over and over, trying to get out of bed, but it all being a dream, only to find yourself still in bed? It's crazy


Eternal (2022): Threw down this jam earlier today to try to break my streak of not writing music for almost 2 months. I have a lot of inspiring sounds to look through. Just need to get back on the composing horse ;)


Caedarva Mire - Final Fantasy XI : I forget the actual name of this song. Spoilers(?) for Treasures of Aht Urghan zone. I think this song is really spooky, and even at the original cap of 75, the zone itself was scary for different reasons. Good stuff.


Omicron (2011) - One of my favorite songs from the album "From Alpha to Omega". It uses the "A Well-Known Stranger" melody, and it's quite an energetic piece of music. It's definitely one of my proudest achievements. FFXI is a jerk, see comments :p


Omega (2011): The final track of my second album "From Alpha to Omega" where I wrote a song for each letter of the Greek Alphabet. This song is meant to represent hopelessness and despair. I share these songs because I don't want to be forgotten.


Paranoia (2019): From the album "Madness". Not sure what to say about this song. I really like the drums throughout. Got some spooky sounds :p I'm a pretty paranoid person. I feel like I inherited it from my father. If something is odd, I back away.


Last Words of a Dying Man (2019): One of the few songs I've written that can make me emotional. Originally written for a scene where the hero is saying goodbye to a long time friend. It's not a very complex song, and it's kinda short. But it still hits.


Kauzality: I believe this was the 3rd song I wrote for the original Songs for Gamers (known as Destructoid Community Album back then) in 2011. This is when the idea "clicked" and I wrote a ton of great songs for it (the first two songs were replaced).


One To Be Feared (2016): This is somewhat of a sequel song to Corrupt Leader of the Free World. I like the piano lead, and the use of horror sounds throughout the song.


The Corrupt Leader of the Free World (2014): I'm not a very political person, especially when I wrote this song for a scenario of a very evil leader abusing their power and causing mostly negative things. The hero would have to overthrow the leader.


In Your Base, Spaceship (2012): 2012 was a VERY experimental year for me music-wise. I was trying to find my own unique sound, and that would be synth heavy songs with simple melodies. This song is a good example of the kind of music I write.


A Simple Town (2019): One of my biggest weaknesses in making music, is that I don't vary up the instruments much, if at all. This song has what I call Voice Changing, where the melody alternates between two instruments, like a duet of sorts.
