It looks like I'm moving to round two of the 2012 Newgrounds Audio Death Match! This means that out of around 200 entries, I am in at least the top sixteen. I don't know HOW that one happened, but I'm thankful nonetheless. :)
In other news, a piece of mine called Mural OST - Drifting made it to the NG front page earlier this week. That was an awesome surprise. This evening, my younger sister pointed out that another piece of mine made it to the front page! I'm really surprised about this as the piece was just released yesterday. It is only about 50% done, unpolished, and apparently has really sucky drums according to reviews. -_- Not only that, but it didn't get a particularly high score or anything. Who chooses what goes on the front page anyway? Or is it automated? Oh, and the piece is an arrangement of the Gerudo Valley theme from Zelda.
Anywho, I'm pretty excited about the NGADM. I'll definitely need to step up my game to keep in the competition. I'm also pretty excited, albeit nervous, to be going back to community college tomorrow. Yep.
By the way, can anyone help me with those drums? I don't know what I need to do to make them better. Perhaps you have a tutorial you could point me to, suggested listening, or advice from personal experience? Please? :)
