Well that was an interesting and busy 5 months. Things in my life have finally slowed down enough that I’ve been able to come back and write a few posts for my poor neglected website. It turns out that working a 40-50 hour day job, remodeling/setting up a studio space, writing news stories and reviews for the Original Sound Version gaming site, and attending conventions doesn’t leave a person with a lot of spare time. But I am finally back. A little tired out, but back.
One of the big things that happened recently involves my work on the Original Sound Version (OSV) site. I had known that this was in the cards for a while, but part of the plan with bringing me on the site was not just that I would be writing for it, I would also eventually be helping run the site. So starting this past January, fellow contributing writer Brenna Wilkes and I became the Co-Managing Editors of Original Sound Version. The original founders of the site have moved on to bigger and better things and they felt confident enough in Brenna and I that they have handed control of the site over to us. I’m honored and humbled to have been given the chance to do this and I hope to continue making OSV a great site to go to for game music reviews and news.
My full-time day job, which was seasonal, has finally ended, so now I’m able to focus on my music and working on OSV. For now, I’ll be focusing my music efforts on expanding and building my portfolio. Even though I didn’t have time to compose over the past several months, I continued to come up with ideas and tried to jot a lot of them down. The lack of original music that I currently have up on this site has been gnawing at me all winter and it’s the first major thing I want to tackle. So with a larger chunk of my time free, I’m going to go into full music production mode. I have some ideas for what I want to do, so hopefully I’ll have some more stuff coming to this site in the near future.
I will try to keep posting on this site when I get the chance. I said that last time of course, but at least I know now that I’ll have some actual time to do it. No more of this once every 5 months nonsense. As I said in my last post, anything involving game coverage that I do is going to be on Original Sound Version, so this site is really being transitioned into a blog/site for my music projects. Be sure to check out some of the stuff we’re doing over at OSV. For now, I’m going to get back to composing and I’ll hopefully have something more to tell you in the next few weeks.
