LucidShadowDreamer's News

Posted by LucidShadowDreamer - March 17th, 2018


I thought it would take a while longer, but it seems like it already happened. Only one day after my birthday too :O

WOW, thank you all for the amazing support! When I started uploading on Newgrounds, I thought maybe I'd get a few listeners and all that. I never imagined that I'd actually reach 500 fans in just a bit more than 4 years. I've really enjoyed my time here, with the community (and I plan on enjoying it for a long time coming).

I guess I'll use this spot to highlight some of the things I've created over the years. One from each portal, aside from movies. I guess I'll eventually have to work on an animation too, so I'll really have tried a little bit of everything :p

As I'm mainly a musician, here's a link to one of my personal favorites of my own making.

Mundum de Somniorum


I've also made a few games during my time on NG. I plan to make some more, whenever I get enough time and inspiration. I think my best and most popular game, without a doubt, is:

Playing With Letters
 

Aside from music and games, I've also dabbled just a little bit with art. I feel like if I practiced a lot, I could create some pretty neat things. But, even without practice I've been able to create a few things I'm pretty happy with myself. One of such works would be this one!

Jordling

 

Once again, thanks to all those of you who have decided to click that little red heart on my page. And a huge thanks to @Tom for running such an awesome site, and for being supportive as well. Here's for many good times to come!


Thank you ^____^

Guess what I just got?

The Newgrounds Pin!

 

4894290_151974981341_ProudPin.png

 

I'm wearing it proudly, in my pyjamas as one should.

Here's a bit of a clearer picture:

 

4894290_151975003853_Screenshot_20180224-164953.png

 

And you can get it too! Just click any of the pictures above, or click this link.

It's very detailed for being so small:

 

4894290_151975029753_Screenshot_20180224-171816.png


You can kinda see the shadow behind it.

Just because it's fun, here's our beloved tank upside down:



4894290_151975039941_Screenshot_20180224-172229.png

 

You could get it too, for only 99$!!

(Not actually 99$, just check the links for the actual price)


So should you get it?

Click here to find out!

 


 

Alright, that's enough free advertising, haha. It'll probably scare more people away anyway :p

I really do like the pin though! It's cheap, but very nice looking and seemingly of high quality for what it is. It took a while to get shipped, but when it did it arrived in just 4 days. And I live in Finland!!

Other than checking out that NG merch, you could also listen to one of my latest compositions (if you haven't yet and feel like doing so):

 


I hope you're having a nice day :3
Cya next time!

Along with many other musicians, I participated in a neat little album that was just released on Bandcamp. The Underground Collective is back, with Volume II - Sounds of the Future. Check it out!

Thanks to Kaede for the cover art.

 

To see the other people involved, have a look at @ForgottenDawn's newspost:

That's it for now. TUC will surely continue to bring you more neat stuff in the... FUTURE.
I'll see myself out...

Happy 2018!

What a year 2017 was. Lots of bad stuff, lots of good stuff! But now it's over, and the focus should shift to the current year.

For this year, it seems thus far that I'll have way more free time than previously, and I intend to use that for musical purposes!!!
There are lots of tracks I want to cover, a fair amount of collabs I want to be a part of, and naturally, more compositions I want to make than there's room for in a lifetime. Speaking of which, if there's one thing I'm really happy with when it comes to the music I made last year, it's this:
 



Also uploaded to Newgrounds, of course.


It might not be my most emotional composition, but it's probably the most technically difficult. Also, I think it sounds pretty rad, and it's really fun to play. It's the longest I think I've ever worked on a piano composition, even though I did so on and off, because of time constraints. In the future, I should look into improving the production somewhat.

Near the end of the year, I also had the opportunity to work with Jordi again, to bring you this:
 

Jordi's (@etherealwinds) voice goes incredibly well with the piece. I'm not sure one if one's allowed to say it about something one helped produce, but it's my favorite version of the song :3


In other news, I've already started composing something new this year, and we'll see what else I manage to create. I'm certainly hopeful of what this year will bring. At the same time, I hope this will be a wonderful year for you!

Let's see where it'll all go, shall we?

NGADM 2017 | INFO | Pairing | Auditions | Round of 64 / 32 / 16 / 8 / 4 | FINALE & RESULTS |


This is it!

The NGADM of 2017 is officially over, and the winner has been announced. May I say, the victory is well deserved, as the competition was tough. If you didn't find out who the winner is yet, you can read on or go to that results page that I linked to, above :)

Including the auditions, this contest had 7 rounds, 6 of which were in a deathmatch format. That is to say that a single loss meant you're out! Now, a few very high scoring non-winners (there's no nice way to say that, is there?) were given the opportunity to come back, which in a sense made the NGADM even more interesting! One of them was our powerhouse team that made it all the way to the finals!

The final scores didn't differ all too much, so the excitement was real. After all, the finalists consisted of a team including a previous winner, going against the winner of last year's NGUAC! Speaking of the scores, we'll get to those soon. First, I urge you to take some time to listen to the finalists' fine finale tracks! This playlist may not be extensive, but it's exquisite nonetheless: NGADM 2017 FINALE PLAYLIST!  

Before the round was over, the main organizer uploaded another podcast, very much worth a listen :3

Now then. Let us thank Ceevro for the official NGADM 2017 artpiece!
And now, let us move on to what you've been waiting for; the finale results! 

4894290_150918730651_NGADM2017.png


=============================================================================
=============================================================================

 

FINALE

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The order of scores by judge:

@Bosa@ChronoNomad@ADR3-N@Samulis@Skyewint@TaintedLogic.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

@FinnMKWe Are Heroes: 9.80 / 9.55 / 9.20 / 9.5 / 9.20 / 9.50 ~ Average: 9.46

(The competitior with the highest average-average score!)

VS. 

(Featuring the 3rd place winner, @etherealwinds!)

@johnfn & @ethansight - C'mon, Girl: 9.20 / 9.23 / 9.41 / 9.4 / 9.00 / 9.00 ~ Average: 9.21

 

NGADM 2017 WINNER: FinnMK

=============================================================================
=============================================================================


Haha, well. The averages don't take much effort to calculate this time, but I'll write them for you anyway:



Bosa: (9.8 + 9.2) / 2 = 9.5

ChronoNomad: (9.55 + 9.23) / 2 = 9.39

ADR3-N: (9.2 + 9.41) / 2 = 9.305

Samulis: (9.5 + 9.4) / 2 = 9.45

Skyewint: (9.2 + 9) / 2 = 9.1

TaintedLogic: (9.5 + 9) / 2 = 9.25

Average average: (9.46 + 9.21) / 2 = 9.335

 

As usual, one of the judes was very close to the average (average)! I trust you'll be able to figure out who that is :) That said, the biggest difference in judge averages was 0.4, which really isn't much.


 

Wow. This NGADM sure went by quickly. It has been a blast following its progression! A huge congratulation to our winner, FinnMK. Also, massive props to his finale competitors, johnfn and ethansight! And a great thanks to all the other participants; you're what made this contest possible.

And out of people who made the competition possible, I'd also like to take some time to thank the organizers, along with the judges! That would be, ChronoNomad & TaintedLogic, Bosa, ADR3-N, Samulis and SkyeWint! I know how much effort they put in, allowing all of us to enjoy this spectacle regardless of our role in it.

And that seems to be it for this year! And what an NGADM it was, amirite? The winners are getting their prizes, including some cash, forum sigs, games and honorary supporter statuses! Check out the aftermath in the forum!

Thanks to all the prize donors, including NG's very founder, @TomFulp. Whilst the contest is primarily for fun and honor, you've made it possible to reward the winners, which is essential.

This year I've been your 'scribe', and I've enjoyed summarizing the rounds for you. Hopefully, we'll see the return of the NGADM come 2018. For now, I'll go back to my studies. If all goes well I'll have some time to devote to music as well. Until my next post, I hope you all enjoyed the contest and that you're doing well.

Cya <3

Hiya, everyone!

I'm on time, this time :O
I tried to be a responsible adult, so I went to sleep early. Well, turns out I woke up after 3 hours and couldn't fall back asleep. I've got a very busy week ahead of me, so I figured if I'm going to be awake anyway, I'd do something useful. And isn't that great! Now we get to share our excitement about the semifinals, and anticipate the GRAND FINALE together!!!


Calling the semifinals exciting might even be an understatement. At one point in time, we didn't know whether all of the tracks would make it in time. One of them didn't, so it was immediately disqualified.
NAAAH, I kid of course! What kind of semifinal would that be? Thankfully, the merciful arrangers of the competition, and just as importantly, the competitior of the latecomer allowed for a delay, because of the circumstances. And what a close round it was!

We see some of the highest scores from the judges in this round. I guess it's only natural, since all four competitors (3 individuals and one team) very much deserve to be where they're at, and have all fought hard for their placements. Hence, they turned out some killer tracks! If you haven't already (and even if you have), go check them all out in this small, yet amazing playlist!

 

We're about to move on to the results, but as always, it's time to show our appreciation to @Ceevro for providing us with the fantastic artwork for the NGADM 2017!

SEMIFINALS

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The order of scores by judge: @Bosa@ChronoNomad@ADR3-N; @Samulis; @Skyewint@TaintedLogic.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

@etherealwinds - Chapter II: Believe: 9.40 / 9.47 / 9.50 / 9.4 / 9.00 / 9.75 ~ Average: 9.42

(The one who somehow made a track in two days!!!)

VS. 

(The MVP of the round!!!)

@FinnMK - Oh Mama Hey!: 9.40 / 9.45 / 9.79 / 9.2 / 9.50 / 9.50 ~ Average: 9.47

 

WINNER: FinnMK

======================

 

@steelside - Fires: 9.22 / 9.26 / 9.13 / 9.85 / 8.60 / 8.00 ~ Average: 8.84

(The Dark Horse; The Underdog!!!)

VS. 

(The sole 'surviving' [resurrected] team!!!)

@johnfn & @ethansight - Dreamworld: 9.3 / 9.33 / 9.27 / 9.5 / 9.00 / 8.75 ~ Average: 9.19

 

WINNER: johnfn & ethansight

=============================================================================
=============================================================================


Oh my, weren't those some results? 

Here come some more averages for those of us who like to look at numbers:

 

4894290_150751073513_NGADM2017SemiScores.png

 

What's this? Not a single average is below 9 this round! That's quite something :O
This time, it's Samulis' turn to be closest to the average, with a difference of 0.01 :)


 

I can't believe how quickly time progresses. If you're going to complain (I know you're not; don't ruin this) about the fact that I've said it before, the fact that you remember it only proves my point ;p
We've already reached the final stage of the competition. The finalists consist of a team in which one member is a former victor of the NGADM, and the opposition has an insane score average, in every round! Who can tell how it'll turn out? I certainly can't, so I'll leave it up to time to tell :)

I want to thank etherealwinds and steelside for doing their best every round! As Chrono said; with music this good we're all winners. I also want to thank the judges (and organizers) for their hard work. Once again, I want to give massive props, as well as a shout-out to FinnMK. He could've decided to win outright since his opponent was late with his entry, BUT he decided to be an incredible sport and ended up winning the round fair and square.

Check out the confirmed top-four competitors (5 peeps, 'cuz o' the team):

FinnMK

etherealwinds

steelside

johnfn

ethansight



Now then. I didn't want to distract from the post with this little section here. When not scribing around, I usually use this spot for shilling a little. I hope you don't mind!
It's not really kosher to upload covers to NG anymore, so I tend to record myself playing them for YouTube instead. Yesterday, I played a classic I'm sure most of you recognize. If you're not too busy, why don't you check it out?

 

Over the Rainbow - Piano Cover

 

All that's left to say, is best of luck to the remaining contestants! I'm very much looking forward to your GRAND FINALE tracks. Take your time, and make sure to blow us (as well as the competition) away. Godspeed!

I know, I know. I'm a bit late with this one.

I've been having some intense University studies, so I have that to blame ^___^

 

Has time really moved this fast? There's not too much left of this little (not so little) competition! The remaining musicians are fewer, but the stakes are higher!
I'm sure many of you are busy with work or studies, but even so the contest progresses. Make sure you don't miss out on it! That's why I'm writing this post.

Before the results of this round were released, ChronoNomad uploaded another podcast! I recommend you check it out, if you haven't. As for the tracks, you'll find them in this neat playlist!!

Lemme just say it's always a blast to listen to what the musicians of the community can come up with when matched up with one another. That is one of the main beauties of the NGADM.

 

As you may know by now (still worth repeating tho), our contest art was gracefully made by none other than @Ceevro!

Now then, it's time for the results!

Whoopety doop! Here I crunched the numbers a bit to find out what the averages are, in case you are interested.

 

4894290_150594217072_NGADM2017SemiScores.png

 

This time, Bosa seemed to be quite close to the average average! That said, two other judges were within 0.10 from it too, which is pretty impressive (or you know, coincidental).


 

We're reaching the final stages of the competition now, with only a couple rounds more to go! Namely, the ongoing semifinals along with the grand finale. Only three competitors + one team left at this point o.O!

Regardless of how the rest of the contest turns out, I hope everyone is content with their participation! Especially the remaining contestants ;)

If you're just here to read about the updated situation, all the better! I hope we still have a lot of people keeping up with the results, after all.

That's all you get for now! Stay tuned, since the semifinalists are working on their tracks, and the finalists will be announced in a few weeks!!!

Well well, hehhe.

Seems like the results were a bit early this time around, so to balance it out I did you a favor by being a bit late with my post ;) *cough*
 

Hey, this was another supercalifragilisticexpialidocious round! Dare I say with some expected, and some unexpected results? There were no walkovers; hooray for that! Once again though, one of the judges (different one) was unfortunately busy with "real life", so to speak. Hopefully, for the last few rounds they'll all be able to partake in the judging, if for nothing else than the fewer remaining champions. And congratulations to all who made it through!!!
The pressure is certainly intensifying. Thank you for participating, to all who unfortunately have to wait until next year to compete again.

If you haven't heard all of the tracks from this round, or if you want to relisten to them all in a compiled and easy manner (like I have been doing while making this post), this playlist will suit those needs perfectly :)

Of course, props to @Ceevro for providing this lovely art for the competition. Since it is a competition, perhaps we should move on to the results?

Once again, I tried to conclude some simple averages. Lemme know if my work is messy, since it's past 5am.

4894290_150397265832_NGADM2017R16Scores.png

This round, the average average seems to agree with ADR3-N! (Unless I've made some calculatory errors).


 

Fewer and fewer people remain in the competition! We're down from 16 to just 8-bit (battlers in tonality) now. Who will have the Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent to make it all the way to the end? Continue to tune in, if you want to find out!

For now, I will instead tune out until my services are needed again (in three weeks, to be more precise). Fare well, until then!

Yo!

Another round of the Audio Competition just wrapped up. I told myself to finish this post within 24 hours of the results being revealed. Here we are, 23.5 hours later, with another summary. All that's left to do is to acually summarize!

There were some twists and turns this time around. We had a few walkovers, and a judge who unfortunately was preoccupied. Even so, the competition goes on and we all got to listen to 29 tracks of varying styles. I recommend that if you haven't, you listen to them (all linked below), and maybe leave a review or two! In case you are interested, a playlist has also been compiled.

In addition, the main organizer (@ChronoNomad) uploaded another podcast in which he talks about the contest. Check it out!

At this point I have a feeling most of you know the drill. Thus, I'll move on to the results! Before that, I once again want to give a shoutout to @Ceevro for the totally tubular spray paint art!

I didn't find them anywhere, but I took the freedom to calculate approximate judge averages too. It's late at night, so I won't vouch for their accuracy. Either way, here they are:

@Bosa ≈ 8.36

@ChronoNomad ≈ 8.49

@ADR3-N ≈ 8.48

@Samulis ≈ 8.03

@TaintedLogic ≈ 8.46


Average average ≈ 8.36 (Seems like Bosa was on point!)


 

Congrats to the winners of this round!

It certainly won't get easier from here on out, so you best be prepared. Once again, I am personally excited to see what all of you will come up with for the next round. I am also willing to bet I am not the only one, so get your game on! 

I would write more, but it's late at night and I have to get up early, so I'll leave the winners to think about their upcoming works, and the rest of us to wait in excitement (and possibly, perhaps, conceivably procrastinate a little bit in between). Best of luck!

Until next round ;)

NGADM 2017 | INFO | Auditions | Round of 64 | Round of 32 | Second Round Deadline | Pairing


Sup!

So the round of 64 has passed, and along with it so have half the contestants. Well... At least out of the competition; I sure hope they haven't passed away because of the disappointment :V

Even so they all brought something to the table, and fought bravely. As expected, the competition was intense, and there was even some very minor drama here and there in the forum (dare I say, as expected). There were some delays, and a few people had to drop out. In the end we got 61 tracks out of 64 possible, which isn't bad! Especially not considering the quality of them.

A special shoutout to Phonometrologist for scoring the highest points in the round, with a whopping 9.62 average!

No pressure in the coming round, hehhe ;)

Once again, huge thanks to all the organizers and judges, along with all who are donating to the prize pool! And of course, to all who participate. Keep up the strong game, and we'll enjoy seeing how far you can take your music in this ever more challenging deathmatch.

In all likelyhood you didn't come here to read my ongoing ramblling, so I'll give you the results forthright!
(After this really cool Spray Paint by Ceevro):

Congratulations to all the winners!

And huge props to all who made it this far. Once again, I hope that all of the discourse (be it in the forums, or elsewhere) remains civil. Hopefully, according to plan the judges will pop up with at least a few reviews for every track. Additionally, I'm sure they'd be happy to tell you their reasoning for the scores if you send the personal PM's, respectfully requesting such.

All that said, the contest is yet far from over. I wish all the remaining competitors the best of luck!!!
Get your A game on, and hopefully you'll be able to surpass not only your competitor, but more importantly, yourself.

I for one will very much enjoy seeing both the journey and the outcome of the NGADM 2017!

That's all for now, folks.
