one of my main hobbies is making music. i've been doing it for about 4+ years now, though i'd still call myself a total amateur. you can usually find my songs on soundcloud, but i don't upload there very much, what with the upload limit and all.
regardless, i figure i should post some of my favorite tracks i've made here. if i can think of something to say about them, you'll find a blurb about it under the song. a lot of these are old so the dates i put on em might not be entirely accurate. that all said, i probably won't be uploading a whole lot of songs on here. just ones i like. so, if you're interested in more of this, feel free to follow me elsewhere. it would make me happy!
i mostly use a program called 'rytmik ultimate' for making music. i use that one because i started out with 'rytmik retrobits' for the DS, and the layouts are pretty similar throughout that whole series of software. that said, sometimes i use other stuff, too. i love working with orgmaker and soundtrap, and vocaloid4... sometimes i will mess with utaus too!

useless people - 1/30/23
first full song of the year, and it's a song with lyrics. who would have thunk it. originally i wanted it to sound more peaceful but somehow along the way the instrumental turned into "desert temple music", and i'm ok with that.
wake up and realize that your life's offtrack something that you lost that you can't get back whatever you're missing deep inside it cannot be found 'cause it didn't hide useless people without a home locked up mind, refusing to grow you know you always have known you know (crawling up the corner, that's just you) (if you won't stop staring, they'll hate you) it's another time and you feel so weak the simplest of tasks that you can't complete everything seems better inside a screen so you live your life inside a screen but there's something that just isn't right when you shut yourself down at night you know i think we both know the whole truth (every mistake you make, that's on you) (if you'd just stop caring, it'd stop too) (just grow up already, you ought to) (fellow useless people, i love you)
see shells? - 4/6/22
fun beach party music
ditty2 - 5/27/22
not the final name, but i never gave the song an official title. i remember sketching this on onlinesequencer. i wanted to try and make something a bit more complex and less "pattern-reliant" as my regular stuff. I'm still pretty bad at that but it sure was fun!!
BELLPEPPER - 3/1/22
i like the buildup in the beginning a lot...
rotted sugar - 2/24/22
something fun and poppy. there are a few quirks in this song that sort of annoy me, but overall it's cute.
changing light - 6/13/22
i was on a vocaloid kick again when i made this one. Some of the lyrics feel a bit stiff but i quite like the background singing.
everything's all the same - 6/10/22
song that originated from the same vocaloid kick as the previous one, though this one is a bit rougher around the edges... Be warned it is a bit loud.
our sleepy days - 5/25/22
recent experimental track. i made it by creating a midi in onlinesequencer and then just porting it to soundtrap for better instruments + mastering. i really like it...
sandy nights - 10/18/21
a very sexy guitar track i made. reminds me of driving in a desert at night, hence the name....
abandoned world - 5/9/20
empty - 8/14/20
i was experimenting a lot when i made this song, i think. i thought the glitchy vocals, droning chords, and twinkly strums sounded very beautiful (i still do). i decided a while after making this song that it would be the credits theme for one of my stories (called Indigo's Void, if you are curious.), so there's a lot of association there, hehe.
bk - 1/26/20
writing this now, i honestly cannot believe this song is 2+ years old. this is one i also got from experimenting, and the result made me so unbelievably happy at the time. fun fact, the 'true' title of this piece was 'bike' for some reason. not sure why i shortened it to 'bk', but that's just how it is now. the singing at the end is from an utauloid i made that i still use sometimes, and who has shown up in some of my other creations (though no one would know it but me and some friends, maybe). perhaps i will talk more about him someday...
station - 1/21/20
a vocaloid track! well, kind of. this one just has them vocalizing rather than using any lyrics, cause i'm pretty bad at writing those... experimenting with various parameters to make the vocaloids sound all squeaky was fun. i believe the singers here are vflower and gumi. i still like this song a lot but i feel like my mixing has improved a bit since then.
seaglass - 10/10/21
another vocaloid track- with lyrics this time!!! the singers are miku and rin. truth be told, i am quite embarrassed of this track. i really do hate my own lyrics sometimes... but, at the same time, this song means a lot to me, and i think it's a lot better crafted than my previous attempts at vocal tracks. so, i dont know. i have mixed feelings on it. i hope you enjoy it, though.
interstellar toll booth - 1/29/22
a pretty recent one at the time of writing this. it's kind of a happy-go-lucky chiptune sort of thing. i'm quite proud of how it turned out, TBH.
halo - 7/29/20
this is another song that means a lot to me. not for any particular reason, it's just one of those songs i put a lot of effort into getting juuust right, and i still think it holds up pretty well, hehe. the intention here was some sort of... i dunno, biblical droning. loud and powerful like an angel would be, with a strange tension in the middle. if you couldn't tell, i wrote it during the same kick i was on when i wrote 'empty'.
friendship - 7/13/21
a sort of bouncy, "island-y" tune. i wrote it when i was thinking about friendship, if that wasn't obvious.
it's light outside - 4/2/21
this song makes me incredibly happy. even though it's been about a year since i wrote it, i still find myself humming along to it or wanting to listen to it again... it has a very sweet "credits" sort of feel to it. if things go to plan, you'll hear it in one of my future projects.
