archiving some of my music here, just for fun... this page is suuuuper WIP

stella's tunes

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.

i have a seperate tumblr blog for music as well. that one is also a tad inactive. But if i post music anywhere it will go there first.

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!

oh yea, some of these songs might be a bit loud. you have been warned.

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 - 10/18/2021

a very sexy guitar track i made. reminds me of driving in a desert at night, hence the name....

abandoned world - 5/9/2020

i remember very clearly writing this song based on some songs my girlfriend (not my girlfriend at the time) mentioned to me as what type of music would fit their OC. so i decided i wanted to try making that song. the name came from another friend saying it reminded him of a "dead/forgotten MMO" after giving the demo of it a listen. so, i guess this song wouldn't exist without those two people. it is meaningful to me for that reason.

empty - 8/14/2020

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 - 1/26/2020

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 - 1/21/2020

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 - 10/10/2021

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 - 1/29/2022

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 - 7/29/2020

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 - 7/13/2021

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 - 4/2/2021

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.
