A New Year Approaches

Well, well, well.

I haven't been as avid a poster here as usual, but the time has come for an update. This year has been a weird one; perhaps even more so than most of the previous ones I've experienced. Not just for me, I feel, but from what I gather, it's how a lot of us are feeling.

For once, I don't really have that much to say, other than that I hope the coming year will be a good one! Instead, I'll leave you with a final piano piece (this year), which I recently finished composing:

 

Naturally, it's here on Newgorunds as well.

It's been a while, but I wrote a new blog post as well. That is, on my actual blog over at blogger. If you feel like reading a few further thoughts I've had this year (nothing mindblowing; just a basic summary), feel free to do so!

Now, I'll go ahead and celebrate New Year's Eve. I hope you have a good one too, regardless of how you're celebrating, and even if you aren't  ^   ^

Happy New Year, and see you in the next one!

I like reading your blogs. What is meeting people you first met on the internet like? I've never experienced it before.

Your new song is great! I'm going to delay my review because I've been procrastinating too much.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I'm glad that someone actually reads them! This one in particular wasn't that eye-opening, but not all of them can be :D

It was pretty chill meeting them! I showed them around the city, we had lunch a few times, went to museums, and whatnot. Some good practical English practice for me too :)

Thank you for your review on the composition! I worked quite a lot on this one :D

That video was exciting to watch. You were all kawaii out of the gate with that little hand wave but you turned into some avant-garde creature. Like "the spirit of Frederick Chopin being channeled through a small monkey which is being channeled through you" kind of creature.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I'm telling you, that (which some people have called "retarded", possibly rightfully so) wave I do at the beginning, has become my thing on these videos, haha. I just spontaneously did it on my first piano upload, and I've kept it up since (apart from a few videos where I play on real pianos) :p

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say this about my own uploads (ofc I am, haha, but you know), but I think the piece turned out pretty interesting, and at a few points here and there, pretty good even! It's one if my more classical works, even though a few sections had a different style (jazzy, or even pop/anime-ish [I've been told!]).

I mean you have the spirit of a monkey that's channeling the spirit of Frederick Chopin. I meant that as a compliment but the more I try to reword it the more I'm like "damn. Should have kept my mouth shut."

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I AM SO OFFENDED!!!

Haha, ofc I kid :'D
I actually smiled at that analogy :3
I often times find that not keeping my mouth shut, leads to interesting situations. But also, surprisingly often, it changes nothing :V

I walked away trying to justify the compliment. I could have deleted those posts but I eventually came to the resolve that you are an animal on the piano.
