Couple of projects I've done over the years, newest to oldest. All are technically active, though t:p.p hasn't had a (publicly) released track for like 4 years:

YOUNG JAGUAR. Electronic music, first demo EP dropped today - Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/young_jaguar...four-encounters

Slothful Bong. Stoner/Doom/Sludge, Djent, Modern Metal (pretty much all instrumental WIP stuff) - Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/slothful-bong

the:pawn.project. All sorts of stuff, but mostly electronica and progressive hard rock (old stuff from like 2005-2015) - Bandcamp + youtube of a remix:

Did a couple of new tracks I'm pretty happy with. Peak is a song about climbing mountains, the mirror is about the terrible/wondrous things you see, hear, and imagine while looking at your reflection in the infinite black lake.

This started out as a very cheap and crappy ghost-produced track that I bought to use in my game, but I'm very happy with what I've turned it into: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pney79jkDkU

You gonna release an album of the SEQUENCE STORM stuff? I boot it up sometimes just to listen to Chaos and Japan, haha.

Been working on this cold war nostalgia EP for quite a while, it's done, and now it's out, because today seemed auspicious for that. Lofi hip-hop instrumentals.

This is some dope poo poo! Gotta give it a proper listen, but I'm really enjoying what I'm hearing!




To contribute some more of my own music to the thread, here's a new track. Dedicated to all the comfy cushions of the world:

I was playing experimental music last week!

This sounds like a computer's psychedelic nightmare, lol. Taking a long drive today, will give it a listen on the good car speakers. Always down for long, evolving tracks!

Double post to keep things cleaner:

I normally wouldn't do this with my YOUNG JAGUAR project, but MrSargent has inspired me - here's a WIP track I've got going! World-inspired instrumentation, with a western song structure. It's pretty much a love letter to my other experimental project, the:pawn.project, but with all the things I've learned in the intervening 15 years since that one started. And also I got a NI Komplete update (from 4 to 12, lol) a few weeks ago, so I've been going hard on all the new synths and samples I have access to.

It's called pillows. It's a continuation of the theme I did with cushions, and will likely keep going for another couple of songs until I have an EP I can call comfortable things.


WIP status: I'm mostly happy with the arrangement, mix is pretty good to my ears (minus piano dynamics being a little iffy, might adjust), but I'm at a loss as to where to go next. Not sure if I should go full Beck and add guitars, or some sort of lead line. I generally prefer a lack of proper lead instruments in my music since I'd rather just jam over it if I want that, but I know that's not for everyone. Will likely do a little drum tweaking since that can always be better (and it's the first time I haven't used superior, so I'm still learning how all the NI drum stuff works).

This is also probably the most "subdued" mix I've done in a very long time, not all brickwalled or pumped to hell, so I'm in semi-new ground here. Level balancing is a lot harder when focusing on background/quiet instrumentation behind louder stuff, who would've thought!

Here's the track (private for now, until I've decided there's no more I can do):

Wanted to put something out since I've been sitting on a dozen unfinished tracks and can't figure out how to complete them

ruins is a short ambient thing, snow trek is electronic of some sort.

Couple more songs up, collected them in a little EP. May end up doing some more work on them, but for now I'm happy enough.

7 track EP here: https://soundcloud.com/young_jaguar...econd-awakening

New songs (spooky darksynth for halloween!):

A couple more tracks from me as well (stuff from April/May of this year, so don't yell at me baby puzzle, wrapping up the other thing today/tomorrow)

Super Quantum Cat Position is part of an (eventual) EP of four songs with the same title, based on my cat and her ability to be everywhere at once.
Treehopping is a continuation of the theme of "childlike exploration", as heard in peak and snow trek.

This is really dope. Just followed you and just listened to "peak" as well. Really dig your sound!

Major Boards of Canada vibes from that main lead synth melody.

Thanks, that's very much appreciated!

I just checked out your soundcloud stuff as well, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it! Clean mixes with lots of breathing room, great arrangements. The synthwave part near the end of Electrojams is so my thing, awesome work!

It's likely Soundcloud, but to make sure, what does it sound like after it's exported and before it's uploaded?

I have this issue with any track I do that starts on the 1 - soundcloud seems to cut off the first half second or so during normal playback (though if you scrub you can get to the beginning).

It's annoying and I always forget to add a beat or two of silence first, so whatever lol.

POST YOUR TOP THREE PERSONAL FAVORITE SONGS THAT YOU WROTE/PERFORMED (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER).

Haha holy poo poo man, this is a goddamn challenge here.

Since I have 3 active solo projects, Iíll pick one from each. Canít say these are my favs since I write the soundtrack to my life and favorites change constantly, but these 3 represent some serious moments of my life.

the:pawn.project - black spirals. Trip hop influenced darkness.

Slothful Bong - Descent. 5/4 time sludge? Not sure genre, but itís heavy af.

YOUNG JAGUAR - snow trek. Synthwave? Electro? Tripwave? I dunno lol.
Was one of my first songs to incorporate motifs from another, leading to a bunch of newer songs referencing old ones in a way Iíd never done before.

God drat thereís a lot of goon music! Got to as many of you as I could tonight. And Iím in for any cat fundraiser. My cat influences nearly all of my music now, and a loss of her would be heartbreaking

Mistayke- The mixing on Laid Back Front and Center is nice and crisp, even though SoundCloud. Not entirely my type of jam, but it sounds fantastic!


Brawnfire- I dig your playing on little stitch, sounds really sweet all around and gives me a nice warm nostalgia.

im_sorry- Taking a cute photo of my tortoise: Lol when the drums come in, this is so not what I expected. Good job at keeping me hooked.

So Math -
You nailed the shmup thing so perfectly on Flight-700. The wild vibrato, the insanely fast pace and weird power metal feel. It rocks!

SpaceGoatFarts -
Bells is right up my alley. I saw Caterina Barbieri and Tim Hecker last year in Amsterdam, and this gave me the same vibes as that show. Felt like I was along for the ride, seeing where your sounds would take my mind.


Really appreciate everyone who gave my stuff a listen too! Iím deep in some weird super low tuned metal thing right now tbh, so probably not everyoneís cup of tea. But if Iím able to figure it out, Iíll be combining that with my electronic stuff to make something even stranger!

So I somehow totally forgot about this guy, but for yíall that dug black spirals, hereís a nine inch nails remix I did back in 2007. YouTube only since Iím not even sure I have the album it was on anymore and tracking it down is tough now, but if I find either the song or the album, Iíll toss up a link!

I had a couple nights last week where I couldn't fall asleep, so I channeled that into a thing. It's a triptych of sorts.

Gonna pimp it here since I'm sure Baby Puzzle won't mind - new Sequence Storm DLC is out, featuring music from our very own 2DCat, Endochrome, and me!

Gave it a run this morning, looks like I was the first on the leaderboards (on easy mode at least), so my crappy scores are the ones to beat!
