Last month was by far my best month in writing music ever, thanks to working on my game jam game :D

Here is the soundtrack, 12 songs in all, though one is a big remix of some of my favorite game songs, and a few are remixes of each other: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdJFAJujPcY

New month new song!

This is supposed to be the beach theme (spoiler for Anime Dream Girl Episode 2)... I would note that this sounds a lot like other songs I've written for Anime Dream Girl so I think I will need to branch out a little more for the next song >.<

For some reason the chord changes starting at 1:06 were really hard for me and I had to redo that part like 30 times because the chords sounded off o_o

WOO I finished a song

My other songs were starting to sound really similar so this time I tried making a folk..rock..song

Then I couldn't think of any deep lyrics so I just made a song about coding and getting stuck on a bug

I skipped bumping this topic for June's song cuz I thought it was not my best but I think July's song is fun, probably cuz it sounds to me like it is influenced by Chrono Cross / Chrono Trigger xD

Added my songs for the last three months

November

On each of them I tried to use some new techniques, like pitch bends and playing with delay effects, hopefully I'm improving xD

Hi Akira,

September 2018 Song:

I like how the introduction draws listeners in with its first four measures, then kicks off as it goes along. The rhythm, beats and melody altogether blend harmoniously and I'm totally feeling the passion and energy shining through from each track you put together. It does give off some Chrono Trigger vibes and I think the flow would suit something like Castlevania.

October 2018 Song:

The introduction has a vibrant, dream-like quality. The pitch blends on each of the tracks are very clear. None of them overpower, nor overlap the other. They can all be heard without one track ever eclipsing over the other. The track overall is very soothing, like the kind of track that inspires one to get lost in thought or self-reflection.

November 2018 Song:

It has a really good late-90's, early 2000's rock vibe. I like the melody and the atmosphere of the track. Plus your voice is perfect for the genre. Also, your lyrics are spot on and clever! If you'd like, you could try experimenting with the delay effects a bit on the vocal, but overall, it's a solid track.

I'm also learning some of these techniques myself, but I hope my feedback was helpful. Definitely keep up the good work and can't wait to hear more!
