Electronic Drum Kit

My dad just bought an electronic drum kit from his friend. It is SUPERB :D.

Never knew drums were so fun to play! Almost as much as piano :3.


Piano exam tomorrow...

Wish me luck.

EDIT: OH HOW I HATE EXAMINERS with their ridiculously noticeable English accents and their fake smiles which scream 'IMA FAIL YOU!!!' and... and...

But I did well :3.


CF Remix submitted, and got modded!

2010-10-04 14:41:48 by Step

Just to say that I submitted that Chaoz Fantasy Remix I was talking about in my other newspost. It's a combination of Rock and Orchestral, and I think it came out really well, at least for my standards. Check it out!

Also, I just got audio-modded. I've got to say, I'm excited about it :P. People keep telling me I'm going to get bored of the job eventually, but who knows. I don't get bored easily...


Chaoz Fantasy Remix!

Working on an AMAZING Chaoz Fantasy remix. It's going to be a mixture between orchestral instruments (cellos, violins and french horns) and rock instruments (piano, electric guitar and drums), and Pure-Metal-UTA will record his guitars for it. It's coming out really, really well.

If anyone wants a preview, PM me.

EDIT: Sorry I took so long. Was doing it in the little free time I have. But anyway, just to say it's nearing completion!

Also don't expect anymore songs for me for a big while. I might submit the odd idea here or there, or game music which I already have finished but I'm waiting for the games I made them for to be submitted, but other than that I'm going to try and focus more on school stuff, believe it or not. D:


Yay...

Frontpaged!

2010-08-31 14:39:02 by Step

Wow I can't believe it. A song that my friend and I did, called Beams of Hope, got frontpaged!

This is my first real audio achievement on Newgrounds other than some songs featured in a few flashes, so I REALLY appreciate it. Thanks a MILLION to whichever audio mod featured it!



Where I live (Malta), the driving is horrible, and it really isn't as safe driving as in other countries. It's been like this all the time. A few days ago, we were driving back from a meal in some restaurant 10 minutes from home, and we got hit by a ball flying at top speed, probably by some kids who weren't supposed to be playing ball. Thankfully my dad kept his eyes on the road and didn't get a fright, or we would've had it.

There were also loads of occasions when people don't indicate (I mean come on, even the cops don't indicate sometimes) and other times when accidents are almost caused because people are talking on their mobile when driving. A lot of Maltese think they own the road, so they sometimes stop in the middle of it to talk to someone they know in the car driving next to them.

Weird part is, whenever you give them reason and tell them 'you're not supposed to be there', or 'you're not supposed to be doing that', they ALWAYS answer with something like 'oh get a life' and continue doing it. It's like their minds are void of reason, and they just continue doing what they want to do. I think that the driving laws in Malta aren't enforced NEARLY enough as they should be.

Maybe I'm ranting about this since I'm used to Australia after having gone on holiday there for a month. Driving over there is pristine and I didn't ever see anyone do something stupid when driving for the whole month that I was there, when in Malta occasionally you can't last a day without seeing a driver ignorantly forgetting that rules exist.


Back from Australia...

2010-08-24 07:35:45 by Step

Just saying that I'm back from my one-month holiday in Australia. I'm not sure if I responded to everyone who reviewed me during that time but if your review didn't get a response, then please feel free to tell me about it. I think I currently hold a 100% review/response ratio with all my submissions :D.

I currently have a LOT of work to do, which includes scoring movies, making game soundtrack, reviewing stuff on NG and of course studying for my upcoming O-Levels and doing my massive school projects, so please try and refrain from asking me to make music for you or to review one of your submissions for the time being. Thanks!


Going abroad...

Most of you don't care, but just saying that I'll be at Australia till the 23rd of August, so if you see that I haven't responded to your PM/review/comment, then that's because I'm away. I might still have Internet connection, but I doubt I'll go on NG much. When I get back I'll look through each submission of mine and respond to all reviews, and to all PM's and newspost comments too, but for now, I'll be pretty much inactive.

I'll just give an update of what's going on - I've finished making music for a massive RPG, and for Spysociety's game (read more about it in his newspost), and I've started making music for one last person before I take a break from making custom music and take it easy with music - probably focusing more on programming.

Anyway, that's pretty much it. I'll be back in another month :3.

EDIT: Back!
