AFF Musicians Thread

Post by darkwriter00 » Wed Feb 10, 2016 9:01 am

I know GH and I are two musicians within this community already, and that's awesome! :D I'm curious to know if there's anyone else who plays instruments, who sings, who's in a band, etc.

You're welcome to share what you've created. I'll be sure to give your music a listen!

I'm an instrumentalist. I've created neat listens of all sorts of styles, and I've done it for years now; rock, house, techno, dubstep, cinematic, ambience, etc. For a few projects, I've even put my own voice in there - not exactly for singing lyrics yet, but for some speaking parts, and a bit of autotune done in a way that I have not heard anyone else do. Here's one of my newest tracks I'm quite proud of; http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/668390 I will want to get into doing more EDM tracks in the near future!

I'll let GH (AKA gh astly) say what he'd like to say about his music. XD I gotta say, his original song (https://soundcloud.com/gh_music/dinner-time-unfinished) is a very entertaining listen.

Thanks for the kind words for my song :P It was more an experiment than anything, though. Just remember, my name is always lowercase ;) . Anyway, I really like that track that you linked to, that bassline is friggin' infectious.

I've mentioned this a few times before, but I've recently been working on an idea that I've been fostering for a few years now about an Animorphs-themed concept album, essentially about the relationship between a Yeerk and its host. Most of the stuff I've written for that idea is sort of in a stoner/progressive rock style with some industrial influence thrown in. Right now, I don't have much beyond a few assorted riffs and drum patterns, but work on it is going at a surprisingly fast rate, so maybe expect updates soon (unless I fall into one of my infamous lazy spells).

I've also been trying to put together a drum set to start up a band with a couple of my friends. It's probably going to mostly fall under the old school hardcore punk umbrella, in the same vein as Dead Kennedys or Black Flag, and have some weird comedic lyrics, some of which we've held onto for about 4 years. I've also got an idea for a comedic death metal project, but right now, I've got nothing for that aside from the basic idea, which I literally came up with today. :P You should be noticing a trend here; I tend to have a lot of ideas that I never do anything with, but I'm hoping to change that soon.

*Edit* BTW, if anyone's curious, I have pictures of my guitar rig inside the spoiler tags. My bedroom is a mess, I know.

And if anyone's wondering, no, I'm not a Syracuse Orange fan. That hat in the background was just something I got in the gift exchange at work. :P

So just shut your face and take a seat, 'cause after all, we're just talking meat. And music?

Well, it's just entertainment, folks.

Yep, I had an overall good time make that main bassline sound so good.

Your album concept sounds neat. :D

Dead Kennedys is an awesome band. I wish you all the best of luck toward yours! Be sure to share some songs as soon as you finish them. We could all use more funny songs, in a crazy world going through some dark times. Seriously.

Forgot to mention, Blu also does music. I'm only posting this because he doesn't really come around much anymore, but a lot of his stuff is really good. I personally really like his albums The Mirror and Tiktaalik.
