Am I really the monster here?

I'm not really in the right state of mind to do commission work anymore (Not that I got any in the first place.)

I started composing in 2009, simply because no-one else would help me out as a younger chap.
I started by working with Anvil Studio, making midis which I might re-upload just for educational purposes. This went on for a long time, until Legacy gave me a copy of FL studio, which totally vexed me for a long time. I've worked with it since; even going as far as getting a totally legit legal copy of it.
I've been going to a music college for two years, almost at the end of it as I type this. It was fun. It helped me learn some interesting little tricks, even though everyone there used Logic Pro on macs. ¬_¬

So now I return, a long time departed, to show you my most recent works (2011 to 2013)

Most of these links will be for soundcloud, you can follow me there if you want, else I'll try and remember to update this list when I add a new piece.
I can't remember when I made most of these, so as a rule, the lower on the list it is, the more recent it is.
I'll try and keep them dated henceforth.

So, without further ado, enjoy.

... It feels like, when I started composing, everyone else did too.
Ah well. Guess I just have to become better than everyone else.
I'll keep the previous versions of this thread in yonder spoiler, though don't expect the links to work anymore.
Old stuff

wowww that is some neat composing
could do a load more with it though - its an excellent basis
i picture you hear this in flashbacks and in normal situations, but once things get creepy and dangerous it'll transform into some dramatic orchestral piece.

it kind of reminds me of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fur86y7dQJ4
- in a very good way

so if you would be so kind as to dramatize the shit out of this.
i'll reward you with things

This is the theme you hear throughout the manor itself.
You hear the second set of strings that comes in about a third of the way through?
That's the prominent riff throughout the game, So I plan on playing at that, and developing it.
Like you said, it's a good basis.
I'm actually working on the theme of the main antagonist, Greigh.
I am incorporating many of the patterns from this into it and indeed dramatising the shit out of it.

And so I plan on using a few orchestral hits, adding in a little basoon and violin in the background
The bassoon will create a more integral base for the piece and the violin will carry a more intricate background melody.

Also, What things? =o

i like your take on that
i don't know where you get your ideas, but that's some battle music for sure
the pace is excellent, the melody is adapted well, and it loops?
the only thing for me to point out would be the drums, and especially in the last part.
that part feels too empty for me to be the 'finale' of the piece,
might want to consider throwing an extra set of strings in which has a melody that conflicts with the main one,
this'll give that extra 'pressure' feel.

I admit, I get my ideas from classic Touhou music and some old 1970s rock. X3
And yeah, I'll do as you say, sounds good.

I love the minor battle loop. it begins immediately with nothing close to a break, and I like the variety that is shown throughout the piece. The organ/church thing seems to be a little bit random in its going up and down, but that's nothing bad.

With the poltergeist piece, it seems to work well as a theme or place music- it sounds a bit like a one time music that should be played for a scene somewhere. It's randomness works well for it, but making it look sort of takes the random feeling out and makes it seem like some half-way able guy is banging his hands on the keyboard.

Not hard. =p

Re-opened, and totally refreshed with my recent pieces.
Treat this as a new topic from here on.

It's a bit unfair if you come in here after god knows how long, and expect attention without giving it yourself.
I personally don't mind, but generally people are more inclined to put effort into these kind of things if they'd receive it first.
