I've been busy working a long-term album (Piecemeal), which I'm writing piece by piece. I also just completed an AMUC album for the 2012 RPM Challenge, entitled "The Kitchen Sink":

The created piece of Piecemeal can be found here. It's not that big of a piece yet, but it's slowly getting bigger:

The "Kitchen Sink" album can found here. The entire album was done in a single month, so it does have a couple rough spots. Overall, I like how it came out though:

I was also involved in a science fiction anthology entitled Foreshadows: The Ghosts Of Zero. A soundtrack accompanies the book and I was one of many people who composed music for it. (Each story has a music track paired with it.) What's interesting in this case is the music existed first, and then various authors listened to the tracks, and penned stories inspired by the music.

Baptism is a ten minute track that I recorded for the Dead In The Water album last year. I wasn't completely happy with the way it turned out. It seemed to drag a bit, so I set my sights on retooling the track.

It took me about six weeks, but this is the end result:

It's definitely a headphone sort of track -- any feedback is appreciated. It seems like I'm engaged in a never-ending battle to get the levels right.

I've noticed a significant number of browser exploits on DeviantArt since last January.

It's getting to the point where I fear coming here - you hit the wrong page, and one of those banner advertisements will try and install malware onto your machine.

It nearly got me - after visiting DA and getting a "Your Computer May Have Spyware" popup, it totally messed my browser, directing me to a page trying to sell me a mock spyware app regardless of what site I went.

Luckily a friend had Malware Bytes on a USB drive, and it was able to remove the damage.

However, after that, I won't even use Internet Explorer here anymore.

Even Safari isn't totally foolproof, however.

IMHO, The DA needs to really get on the ball here.

They had acknowledged in email that there may be some rogue banner advertisements doing this, but it was beyond their control to seek them out.

I'm going to lay it down simply here -- if people become worried about getting viruses when going to a site, they stop going to the site. That's not good for advertising revenue or a site's long term well-being.

Just checking if any of the musically-inclined Deviantart folk would be participating in the RPM Challenge this February.

Basically - the goal is to create an entire album (35 mins worth of material) entirely in the month of February.

If anybody is game, here's the website:

I've been working on a new Alternate Modes Of Underwater Consciousness album for at least the last eight months.

It's nearly completed, but I'm so #!?^ sick of hearing these songs now, that I need other people's ears to assist.

So, I'm going to begin posting the songs in order on Soundclick. They're pretty much done - at this point, I'm just nitpicking the little stuff, for the most part.

The first track is the title track - it runs over seven minutes long, and incorporates ambient, synthesized music, and even some more conventional sounding hard rock [well, sort of..]

It's freely available for download here:

Or here:

Feedback is appreciated..
