Next week, I will be inactive (completely) until hopefully Saturday night (around 7:30 Central Time). The week after is where the fun will come back, so let's get to today's updates! :D
TOPIC ONE: NEWGROUNDS UNDERDOG AUDIO COMPETITION 2018
I am still waiting to do this. No plans have changed, so I may still have @TheFantasticZ as my NGUAC partner. :D
TOPIC TWO: X REMAKE NUMBER 8
I have had Andromeda X collecting dust for almost two months now, and I may hopefully get back to it again when I come back from my week-long inactivity. :D
The question that has come to me is if Andromeda X will be Lost in Space Chapter 8. Here is my answer:
Maybe. I want to try to have all of my Lost in Space songs original, so that means no remixes. Somebody did ask me about a short side-story about Andromeda X. I may do that, but the level of uncertainty is very high for this song to be part of anything other than being an X remake. :/
TOPIC THREE: NEW THINGS REVIVAL
I am doing a few test experiments for New Things, one of which is my first EDM experiment/song. My EDM experiment is slow-moving mixing-wise, so we may not see this come anytime soon in the coming weeks or so.
TOPIC FOUR: BLAST FROM THE PAST CHAPTER 3 (AND BREIF EXPLANATIONS)
Here is the first main topic of the post.
I have finally began on my third chapter of Blast from the Past! As the official sequel to A Colonial Age Ceremony of War, Chapter 3 will have its timeline to take place in the Revolutionary War.
Blast from the Past did not officially come until after I made A Colonial Age Ceremony of War. The sequel to An Early Age Ceremony of the Natives was to be named A Colonial Age Ceremony of War (as the idea for the name was in my mind since I uploaded An Early Age Ceremony of the Natives to Newgrounds).
All of the Blast from the Past songs take quite some time to make, while each has their own distinct difference from the rest. Chapter 1 had an atonal style of music, Chapter 2 was an instense cinematic piece, and Chapter 3 will be an instense cinematic piece while also having some minor chords here and there (no planned date for Chapter 3).
Blast from the Past may soon not be all solo songs. Anybody who wishes to help me out with future songs in Blast from the Past can help out (you will need to know how to do war-like cinematic songs, no dubstep... yet...).
TOPIC FIVE: KEEPING THE IMPACTS SEQUEL
Now to the second main topic of the post.
I have officially decided to do a sequel to Keeping the Impacts. Even though some people did not like it, I am still doing a sequel for it. This time, I may need some help. I will need at least 5 to 10 other people to help me make some 64-measure drops. :D
What am I expecting for your drops? Nothing much, whatever you can make and I should be pleased. Try to make your drop the way you usually make your drops. Be sure to set the tempo at 140 BPM.
What genres should the drops be? Not specific. Do whichever genre you can do best. Dubstep, trap, house, electro. Whatever you can do best.
Why 32 measures? 32 measures (or 4 parts of 8 measures) was the length of each drop in Keeping the Impacts (I will also a couple of 64 measure, and it was also the length of my usual drops. I know some people do 16 or 32 measures for their drops, but 32 measures will be the exact amount (it is okay if you have reverb on the tail-end of the drop).
What is the limit? This will depend on how many people decide to commit to this megacollaboration. I know there will be people who will choose to keep it at 1 slot (32 measures), some others will choose to have 2 slots (64 measures), and a couple may choose 3 slots (96 measures). A side point to this question is that I may want to keep drops non-consecutive (unless transitions become a problem).
I will just ping people who may want to try: @DJRadiocutter @ELEPS44 @TheFantasticZ @TheMajician @thVTA
The official name of Keeping the Impacts will be... KEEPING MORE IMPACTS
TOPIC SIX: LOST IN SPACE UPDATES
With Chapter 7 uploaded and another collaboration waiting, this puts me in a weird spot. The planned story ahead of Chapter 7 has changed so much that it seems like a different story than from Chapter 1 being finished.
A collab only planned to have 5 chapters now has at least 10 or even 15 planned chapters. :O
I have a discord link to the Lost in Space story collab server on my profile (on the left side of the page) for anybody who wishes to help out. :D
A big thanks to @TheMajician for helping out with SIngulary (Lost in Space Chapter 7). :D
Also, a big thanks to @TheFantasticZ choosing to make music for his own side story of Lost in Space. :D
