The Adventure is in the Spirit of the Warrior, and this time the Warrior… is You.
just the teenage mustache with how uneven my eyes always are when I smile I ALMOST FORGOT HOW I LOOKED
yep that’s what I enabled them for
they can be anonymous now! for people that don’t have tumblrs I guess.
Intricate things are cool, but I need to learn the simple groundwork so I can start building songs up instead of across.
Easily my most complex track:
yeah we played pretend all the time and there was a swingset on a big tree in the back in this cool little dirty alcove until the tree got hit by lightning and collapsed, and now there’s just a ton of foliage. still lots of bugs out there, and birds sometimes. there was a banana slug under a log a while back.
can I be a sister
I usually don’t get requests (besides UU + Terezi Owns) and when I do it’s within a set of parameters so I dunno, I just go with what I think would force Andrew to make a cool animation for the circumstances.
How long it takes me to compose a song depends on how I compose it and what’s involved - the number of instruments, the structure. Some songs it takes FOREVER when there’s a lot of intricate stuff that I keep messing with, like Descend or BR8K Spider. Other songs, like that really quick Aradia thing I posted, take me an hour.
Example: For Rumble and the Rink I think the reason it took so long is because I used my usual structure of “do whatever the hell you want” rather than sticking with generic rock. Keeping it simple probably would have made it a hell of a lot easier and probably sounded better to most people/more period accurate in retrospect… so just because something’s hard to do or takes longer doesn’t make it better necessarily.
This applies to other art too. Intricacy can be alluring, but sometimes the most powerful message is the one presented simply.
Just finished my tracks for the album. Terezi Owns is slightly polished up but nothin’ really happened to it, but my other 2 I put a lot of effort into. I don’t expect people to piss themselves over them ‘cuz they’re not my usual stuff, but I had fun working on them.
Now I am working on tracks for the NEXT album.
