Working on too many things at once

Posted by SourJovis - July 26th, 2014


Normally I work at one project at a time, finish it, upload it or whatever and that's it.

At the moment however I have so many things at once. So many unfinished projects that I will definitely finish but haven't got around to.

First of all there's the Illusion of Gaia Arrangement project where I make remakes of each of the songs from the snes game Illusion of Gaia. I try to stay as faithfull to the original as I can, but with more up to date samples, effects, mixing and mastering, and ofcourse I try to make it sound more lively by having velocity levels and tone lengths fluctuate more, add fades, etc, etc. I had to pause this project for a while because my computer died. I continued on another computer that died as well. I have a new computer now that doesn't have all the programs and functions I used for the project, and I can not fix that. Not my most interesting project anymore I must say, because I prefer to make my own music. On top of that I've started this a long time ago, and my production skills have improved since then. I still use the old sounds for the sake of continuity. I should finish it though, since I'm almost done. A lot of people keep asking me to finish it, because they like it. I can not let them down.

Secondly there are several songs I've started but not finished. They're not in the audio portal, but you may have heard them one time anyway.

Like the music I've made for Hobo Bob

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/639146

and How to Bird

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/642677

These songs were rushed and not even close to how I wanted them to sound. On top of that, the way they appear in the games is not how I wrote them. Only two of the four loops I made for Hobo Bob made it into the game, and those were the loops with the least instruments and layers. The lead instrument for How to Bird was removed because it was too demanding. I'm still working on those two songs.

There are two more songs I haven't finished. One I made for the NG Secret Santa 2014. Another I made for NGMT 13. Also I'm buying a lot of new software, so I can revisit my old songs, update them and republish them as an album.

I'm entering NGADM14 so I think I will be very busy making new songs. I don't know how long I'll be in but I intend to make it far.
