Hello all you beautiful People of the Internet!

I figured I'd make a little blog post to begin 2015, as a way of setting out my musical goals for this year- both for me to look back on and stay on track, and for anyone else who might be interested.

I came onto Newgrounds quite late in the year (October 21st), and in the intervening two months, I've already had the opportunity to make some wonderful friends and get some really helpful feedback on my tunes, as well as having a far larger number of listeners. So thanks to everyone on here, as well as all the other sites (Twitter, Soundcloud etc) who gave it a listen. 2014 was a funny old year on the whole, but I think it was great for my music- two EPs later and I'm far further along the road than I was back in January, though with a long way to go still. In 2015 I intend to continue to build on that progress.

So... plans for this year:

-Having recently acquired the Miroslav Philharmonik sample library, I'm going to work on creating some sweet orchestral tracks, as a way of building my composition and production skills. The first thing I have planned is an orchestral arrangement of Tidal Wave by Sub Focus, as a way of getting used to the library.

-Later this year, I want to get some better gear- namely, upgrading from Miroslav to East/West Quantum Leap

-I have two EPs planned this year- one will be a chiptune-esque one, in the same vein as my track Cloud Fortress. Another will be a mix of electronic, ambient and orchestral elements, and at the moment I plan on loosely basing it around the passage of a single day in one cyberpunk city, something like that.

Of course, these ideas could all change, based on whether a certain musical mood takes me elsewhere. However, I think it's good to have some sort of plan or vision, and will be hopefully able to look back at this post in 2016 and smile :)
