"Sneak Peek of 'Sound Test': VGM Video Magazine" on Examiner.com

Also, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to my Examiner profile to keep up to date with "Sound Test", Examiner.com's first VGM video magazine, written and directed by yours truly. =)



My Examiner.com profile is up and ready to rock. I'm taking the remainder of November to write, plan, shoot, and edit the very first episode of "Sound Test", an online VGM video magazine that my partner Stephen and I will be hosting!

Well, my Examiner.com page is STILL not up yet (although I was told by the recruitment officer that there would be a delay in the building of my page. Since they are in an active recruiting stage right now, I'm probably on a queue list of people to make pages for.

At any rate, I've completed the opening clip for the webshow my partner and I have created called "Sound Test with George R. Powell". Granted, to nullify any allegations that I stole the name from other ventures, I add the "with George R. Powell" part to differentiate it.

I made the video this morning, and the theme music is also by yours truly.

Sweet New Job

2010-11-10 11:30:17 by Setu-Firestorm

I got a job working as an independently-contracted columnist for Examiner.com. My job will be to write articles on Video Game Music.

What I plan to do is to write a few articles per week and write/produce one webshow episode per week alternating between a few planned themes.

As soon as my page is ready for me, I'll be advertising my articles and shows as they are posted! ^_^

A Strange Happening

2010-10-31 20:34:22 by Setu-Firestorm

I just had this strong gut feeling to make this piece, and that it had to be done prior to 9pm this evening. That was at 6:30pm. I toiled to make it, and have uploaded it to just about every medium I have access to.

Suffice to say, I don't know the why or how on this one, but I'm glad the work is done. I'm not even normally a superstitious person.

"Healing Touch"

Spent a good 9 hours working on it too.

Here's the original song:

Things going on

2010-10-15 21:35:04 by Setu-Firestorm

I've been a busy bee.

I've been in a creative slump for a week, not able to work on any original music. It's been a very full couple weeks with not much room to breathe.

I did manage, however, do make an accompaniment to a piano piece handed to me a while ago.

Other than that, I've been trying to start the new album I've been planning. I'm hoping to make it a commercial album, so if you want to follow its progress (whenever I have progress to report, that is), news posts either here or on my Facebook will be the place to go for updates.



I've been rather busy lately with school, work, and a relationship, so my spare time's been in a deep dark hole for a while now.

That's not to say I have stopped composing. I just apologize that it's taking me longer to come out with new music.

But fear not! I've uploaded a new piece I composed this afternoon, intended as an orchestral sketch to an animated film production that's currently in planning/writing stage.

So I had this crazy idea

What if my next Fun Piece of Music project was "Onyxia Wipe: The Opera"?!

NEW Orchestral Piece!

2010-07-06 19:20:53 by Setu-Firestorm

An orchestral remake of my original "Children of the Sky" themes that I composed in 2003 and you heard when I posted "The Sky is Calling" in 2006.

This version, by far, is magnificent in comparison to the old one.
