Greetings everyone. I’ve recently returned from my trip at PAX East. It was my first time attending for the entire 3 days and I’m still feeling exhausted. I made some new connections, met some great people, and had a fun time. I’m still in the midst of processing everything that I experienced there. I’ll be posting a summary of some of what I saw in did in a few days, but for now I’m getting myself organized for the next set of craziness that I will bring upon myself. I am not going to GDC this year but it’s something I hope to do next time. I honestly can’t imagine how people manage to attend PAX East and then immediately head out to GDC without collapsing from exhaustion. Those of you that do, you are an inspiration and I wish you the best of luck. So like I said, there will be a write-up later on the events of PAX East, but for now I’ll be recovering and trying to get myself back on schedule.
After this trip I’ve decided to go ahead and start working on some changes to this site. I’m planning on creating a home page rather than using the blog section as the main page. This is something I’ve always planned on doing, but now seems like a good time to start looking at implementing it. Another change will be the Video Game Music section. I’ve featured two pieces I wrote on that page as a set of samples of my work. My original intention was to continue to add pieces on that page, as a digital portfolio for my work. That plan was derailed by other projects, including a game soundtrack and work on my album. So I will be making some efforts to beef up that section and create some more demo tracks. Primarily, I want to get a wider variety of my writing capabilities shown. I primarily write orchestral music, but I also mess with experimental and electronic music genres, so I’d like to get a fuller representation of my composition pallet up on display. This will most likely result in my original album being put on the back burner for now. I’ll still continue work on it, but I feel this is a needed shift in priorities for me. I will probably be looking at reworking some of the other sections of the site, but I’ll see how the rest of this goes. So look forward to seeing some more content and some changes on the site. There will be a PAX East post up soon, but in the meantime, I’m going to get some rest and get ready for the days ahead.
