A brief music recap of 2016
2016 was the beginning of a transition for me. I still worked on a lot of music projects, but I also experienced about at a 2-3 month gap between projects at one point and that was a little frustrating. Fortunately I was able to ask for help and a client came through with a referral that turned into another good client, but it still didn’t change the fact that I was out of work for awhile.
One of my long-term interests that I haven’t pursued much has been computer science and programming. I enrolled in a 6 month software bootcamp at a community college and that’s been occupying the majority of my time in the second half of this year. It’s been a great experience, it’s quite challenging I feel like I’m learning an enormous amount. It’s been great for my state of mind and I’m looking forward to seeing the impact it has on my future career.
Project-wise, Queen Of Thieves was probably my favorite release since Roommates. The theme song is an orchestral ballad comparable to Seasons Of The Wolf, and this time I also got to contribute on the instrumental soundtrack. Additionally, I’m still working on an animated music video for Zuki Nyu. It’s taking a long time because it’s the first time I’ve worked in 3d and managed multiple remote animators. We’re shooting for a summer 2017 release.
