As some of you here know, besides calculator programming I also did electronic music. I was planning to post my stuff here for a while and here is it, finally.

Back in 2002 I mostly did stuff that would fall into trance and eurodance, along with a few experimental dance songs, then I quit music making in January 2004, as my software CD broke. In December 2006 I started again and also started making UK/happy hardcore songs. Later I also did non-dance music, but not a lot of it. Some songs were gonna be used for a video game I was working on but never finished. By 2009 I kinda drifted away from music, though, so my releases became more and more sparse. My last song ever was made in May 2010, for the Axe Parser Tribute Video on Youtube, and is called Quest for the Legendary Axe.

Anyway, here are my songs if you happen to like electronic dance/rave music or what many people mislabel as "techno". WARNING! There are a few splittercore songs scattered among those and some songs have poor sound quality, as they were recorded with a mic back in 2002-2003. A lot of the 2002-2004 stuff is much lower quality, too. Some songs may be missing as well. I'm not sure if you will like my stuff if you are only into Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Benni Benassi, Basshunter and other mainstream dance artists, though.

I discovered your music about two and a half years ago, and over my summer at a research program in 2008 in particular I have some fond memories associated with walking in the countryside while listening to your music on my laptop. Cheers, and keep up the good work.
Glad you like it. Which songs in particular do you like the most?

Epic Journey Through The Galaxy
Dark Side Of The Moon
Dancing Legend 2007
Star Knight

Those four are among my favorites as well as I can remember; I'll have to go back and re-enjoy them to verify that.
Ah cool, two of the songs I spent a lot of time on Very Happy.

I renamed DSOTM to Journey Through The Moon Dark Side in late 2007, though, because a bunch of Pink Floyd fanboys on Omnimaga got butthurt.
Yeah, I was a bit confused at the title at first, but it quickly became obvious that it was neither based on nor related to the Pink Floyd song.
To be honest, I did not even know Pink Floyd had a DSOTM album when I made that song. It may sound weird to some people, but the fact is that their music style just doesn't appeal to me. I prefer power metal and the fast sub-genres of electronic music, as well as video game music, so it's inevitable that I did not pay attention to which Pink Floyd albums existed. However, a bunch of people got offended that I use their album name, even if unintentionally, for an electronic dance song. After a month or two, I finally decided to answer their requests and change the name.

That's fair; I certainly assumed it was just a coincidence and you intended no reference to the original, considering the total difference in genres and lack of any musical phrasing similarities between the two.
Yeah. I also had this happen with other stuff before. An example is the Yuna character in my 83+ RPG The Reign of Legends 1. Back then, I did not have the money to buy the $500 PS2 over here and as a result, I fell behind in the gaming world and did not have the chance to check out Final Fantasy X. After finishing my game, I discovered that FFX also had a character called Yuna. Weird coincidence, because my game only came out less than a year after FFX and both games' Yuna characters are girls. Razz

As for the JTTMDS song, I wish I did not lose my project file in June 2007. I had backups but then I discovered a bunch of song projects including that one were missing. The only copy of the song I got is not very high quality (I did the mistake of saving in 128 kbps MP3, loading that MP3, editing stuff then re-saving again under that compression. After the edit, it lost even more quality.) and I wish I could provide a higher quality version, plus it would be nice to remix it instead of re-doing new versions from scratch.
I've been equally lax in the attention I've paid to the gaming world in general, considering that I have neither a console nor an inordinate need to get one, but I can't say that it's affected my calculator programming one way or another. Which is the JTTMDS song?
JTTMDS is the formerly called Dark Side Of The Moon song. It stands for Journey Through The Moon Dark Side. Razz

Ooooh, obviously. >_< Thanks. Do you have any original work that you're working on or have planned for the near future?
Sadly nope, I kinda lost interest following the TIMGUL (a forum about music that I used to run) flame wars. Afterward I only made like 4 or 5 songs, I think. Maybe in a few months, I'll suddently get inspiration to make a new song again.

well, if so there are plenty of people here who would love to hear it!
One thing I would like to experiment with since a long while ago is Eurobeat genre, or something close to it. So far, my attempts have been epic fail, though. I guess I just need to listen to more of that japaneese stuff. Razz

Sounds good, I'm sure it'll be an enjoyable work if you do indeed get around to it. Would you still be using the MTV Music Generator?
For eurobeat/eurodance/game yes. For some trance/UK hardcore, probably not, unless I stuck with '90s style.

Oh? What do you use instead, then? I have no plans to make any music, but I always have fun playing around with software, especially musical suites, so I'm curious about something else to mess around with. Smile
During Summer 2008, I experimented with many music softwares. Among them there was obviously the rest of the MTVMG series, but also Ejay Music Studio, Magix Music Maker 14 and 15, Sony ACID Pro/Music Studio 6 and 7 and FL Studio. Finally, the only ones I got comfortable with besides MTVMG1 were MTVMG2, Magix Music Maker 14 and Sony ACID Pro 7. I could not get used to the others or I just didn't like them as much. Even then, I still like MTVMG better because I can do stuff so fast in it. Also Magix 14 requires insane CPU ressources and Sony ACID has a long-time bug that causes your VSTi to not be saved with your projects, so when you reload your project, you have to setup all instruments everytime.

I should try Lmms at one point...
I don't mind insane CPU resources; my desktop is a Core 2 Quad with 8GB RAM, so I might try Magix 14. It doesn't sound like you're really overjoyed with any of those though, correct?
