Yearly update thing

2017-03-10 11:01:43 by Waterflame

Its blog-time!

It really feels like 2016 only lasted a few months. I achieved less than half of what I thought I would last year.
Things slowed down, and I have not found the time or energy to regain traction.
Its been a rough start of the year too, with lots to do, and honestly I am burnt out. Ive been in a very small apartment for two years now, making music and sounds day in and out. I've become more disconnected and reclusive than ever before. Not to mention terrified of e-mail, mail and taxes.

But, im trying to change that this year. Things are looking up.
I am moving in 1-2 months, to a bigger place. And I have rented a little studio-space as well. Its been part of whats been ocupying me latelly. And will hopefully help me regain my sanity. I plan to commute there 3-4 times a week. To separate work from home, and finally start trying some new things!
I will be working two days a week for maxgames still, making sound for their games. So Monday and Tuesday will be sound-work this year. But the rest of the week should hopefully and in theory be more open soon.
The route includes a boat-ride, so that should be great for inspiration.

Here is a picture of the place (So far) I still need to get another external soundcard, sound traps, another screen and some cables and stuff over there, but I hope to start working here next monday.
It is a part of a good friend of mine's workshop / blacksmith. (He does awesome metal-work) He is still working on the place, but this room is finished (we had to put down a floor first etc).

As you may see in the picture I got a greenscreen as well. It has been around for two years but I finally plan to use it for the first time this year. I want to expand my horizon a bit and try streaming on twitch. The plan is to broadcast music creation for the most part, but I have no concrete plans yet. I will get to that as soon as I get used too the new place and workflow is good.
(I am going to use this channel: twitch.tv/waterflamemusic But there's nothing there yet.)

I also talked about updating my website last year. That has not happened yet sadly, but im trying again this year. No promises this time tho :P I will however get out some merch, release a full comprehensive discography list, and set up a PO box. For sure.

Other music related news:
- I am working on a new album, coming as soon as I can finish it.
The album will include ~80% of my current youtube/NG releases, remastered and polished (some times extended)
~20% of the tracks on the album will be exclusive tracks. It will be released to all the usual audio platforms online.
More info on that when I have a date and name to give, but its priority soon.

My other album in the "Skyworld" universe is on hold for now until I get everything else in order.

- There is also some Videogame soundtracks I've produced that is finally done and just waiting for the game to release.
I can not give a date on these, but as soon as the games are out, my music will be too!

- I have reached new milestones on all my sites last year, including 250k+ on youtube. that is insane.
Thanks to everyone who have shown support throughout these years. all in all I am very happy I can keep this job still. Hope to pick up speed and get back in the game again real soon!

If you want updates more frequently, head over to my Waterflame Facebook. I always announce releases and other noteworthy stuff there.

Some updates!

Update 11/10/2016, Extended version of Striker is out


Hey guys. Been a while as usual.
A lot has happened lately, and I wanted to share a few news!
Going from part time freelancer to full-time composer proved to be more challenging than expected.
Ive been pretty stressed. Hit a lot of unforeseen roadbumps, but ive had a lot of awesome jobs as well.

- I have been working on a soundtrack for over 2 years now, for ZEN studios new game. (The same people that made CastleStorm / CSVR , a title I also made the full soundtrack for. )
The game is called infinite minigolf. And you can play the early access alpha on steam right now!
It even had a recent Halloween update, and more updates to come.
I am happy with the work I've done for this project. And worked on it for what feels like forever. So go check out the game and the music! :) (but keep in mind that its in alpha! So the mixing might be a bit off still.)

I dont know how or when the tracks will be available yet, but I will update when I know.

- I got a new job!
I was recently hired by MaxGames, (Creators of stick war legacy and age of war.) as an audio-producer for the new game Mini-legends. I will be working with them until the game no longer needs sounds, hopefully!
You can play the alpha on phone now for free, but it is in the very early stages.
It is cool that I can directly share what im working with for once here tho, so if you are interested, you can see my sound progress in the game-updates.

- Racing apex also made an appearance earlier this year! Allowing me to finally show off my music that was made so long ago for this game. The OST is out now and you can get it in most online stores, bandcamp or listen to it on YouTube. The game itself is not out yet, but I am truly excited for when this releases. the whole game is a nostalgic dream for me.

Im sure theres tons of stuff I forgot to mention, and some stuff I cant really mention yet. But check out my Twitter or Facebook if you want to know more about what I am working on or whats going on.

New track coming out very soon.. And it might have something to do with GD. ;)

So many news, so little time.

2015-12-18 14:48:52 by Waterflame

Hi everyone!

So.. It has once again been ages since I posted anything here. I will just not promise anything at this point,
as it seems to be more of a yearly thing by now.

2015 has been.. exhausting. I have never worked so hard as I did this year, but it has paid off as well!
I am now officially a full-time composer! No more part-time jobs for me. I can finally, after 8 years focus
fully on my music.

So much has happened this year that I dont really know where to begin. So I'll just drop some headlines here!

I moved, again.

I have released some new soundtracks from small Soundtrack assignments!

A new 10 track chiptune album is coming out tomorrow!

Lots of other cool news have been posted here during the course of 2015, including a post where I mention
my plans for 2016:
(This is also where I'll post all updates about upcoming tracks etc)

I have a twitter now?

also.. I am sure I dont have to tell you guys about GeometryDash

And, I am involved in a big Soundtrack project due early 2016. Cant wait to share that with everyone!

Lastly, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who continue to support me! I would not be able to do
this for a living without all of you showing interest and support.
I started up here on NG, and it will always be the coziest most creative place on the web for me.

Happy holidays!

It's about damn time..

2014-10-08 13:43:16 by Waterflame

.. I made another post!
I am terrible at this. not even gonna try to find an excuse this time. haha.
So, there has been a lot going on!
I recently moved to a temporary location, and I will move again as soon as I find a cool place!

I am swamped in music work, and it feels great. The work keeps coming in and I am having a blast with it, although it can be hard at times.
Also, my youtube channel is doing better than ever, so you guys should check that out if you haven't already!

As soon as I move out I plan to make a better set up and purchase a greenscreen and a real microphone, so you guys can join in on some of the composing action next year!

To some of the less personal news:

I am currently making a album called "Community favorites" ! Where I basically put all the stuff you guys love but cant find on itunes or spotify in one big blender and release it! (after some minor adjustments to volume and mastering on most of the tracks) It is nearing completion, but if you have a suggestion or want a track to be on the album, let me know in the comment section!

And hey guys! I made music for Xelu's "Move or die", And its on steam now! So you have to check that out. its going to be completely awesome.

I also finished my work for a number of other games, some that are not released yet, but if you just scroll your way down my Facebook page You can find all news about that there!

More updates will follow!
Hopefully not a year until next time, huh..

Stay awesome NG ~ <3

on this project, and I am really happy with how it all turned out. it is a really fun game as well! :)

The full soundtrack is available at my YouTube channel , and you can also download it from my bandcamp (or buy it if you want to support me :)

Also, I finished my work for the game "An alien with a magnet" !
I made the entire soundtrack for this game, as well as all the sound effects and ambiance!
This project was a challenge, since I normally do not do sound effect work. But it was fun, and i learned a lot from it!
You can listen to the full soundtrack on my youtube channel. (These links take you directly to the playlists. Please subscribe if you want to support me, or get updates on future albums like these! due to copyrights and agreements with the companies i can not upload them here on NG)

I still have a lot of projects around the corner! I am super busy these days!

And last, but not least, my 3rd album is FINALLY out! It was heavily delayed due to all the contract work i got this year,
but it is finally out! 20 tracks of orchestral break-beat and techno, with a darker vibe this time around.
Check out the album promotion!

NEW SONG! + updates

2012-09-13 23:19:01 by Waterflame

So im working on alot of things now!

Soon to come is my new album
"Showdown" featuring more exclusive tracks than old ones, wich is a first

also working on the combined soundtrack for kawairun 1 and 2, comming out later this year,
Aswell as some custom soundtracks for flash games.

But today, i just finished a new song!

My submition for the NGADM Round 3! ive worked on this so much. and i am perfectly aware of the fact that this track is very "ME", but thats what i wanted to do. with that in mind, you dont have to mention it.
I am personally really happy with this track! and this is the stuff i always try to achive and perfect. hence why i do these chords and this happy hybrid style so often.

The track started when i pictured a old sega style Shmop game. The story and song evolved into a theme for a flying futuristic pirate-like ship Called the SuperWing, and the heroes aboard traveling the world for treasures and adventure!

so yeah HERE IT IS!

Also, the picture below was comissioned for the track by Sandrathachao on deviant art!
