      I had some cassettes made up for my EP. I had to make the artwork up at work because I don't have Adobe Creative Suite. They look fucking incredible.

      (I have one left if anyone would actually like to buy it off me)


      I'm also going to see The Smashing Pumpkins in October. Beyond excited. My biggest musical inspiration, two of their albums are in my top 5 of all time.


    • MY FIRST EP IS OUT

      1 month ago

      Metasponge Ocean Voyager

      You can now actually buy (only £1 don't worry) music that I've made;


      Click here to give it a listen!


      Mental. I never thought I'd ever write music. I'm so proud that I've managed to learn so much in a year and a half. I know it still sounds rough, but the fact there's anything at all is something for me to shout about.


      The EP is inspired by quite a few things I like, from Owl City to My Bloody Valentine and from Porter Robinson to the Finding Nemo OST.


      Thank you to anyone who ever gives it a listen. I don't mind if no one buys it, the novelty of being able to charge for it is enough for me.


      Btw I might make some cassettes up one day if anyone wants one (if I can bother to make all the artwork for it)

      Mastering the EP.


      Going back and forth with an artist and the WIP for the artwork already looks fantastic.


      I'm releasing an EP.


      Who do I think I am.


      Ocean Voyager will be out soon.

    • Music is Fun

      2 months ago

      Metasponge Ocean Voyager

      When I make music, I'm constantly chasing those small moments that make me think 'wow'. I'm not sure if a 100% 'wow' from my own music is actually possible, since I can't really surprise myself in the same way that someone else's music can.

      I made this last night using a chord pattern from an old project.

      It actually blows me away. Going up in octaves is cliche, but god I love it. It's not finished, but for me it's a very good start.


      Not like I pretend about doing beautiful live sets in front of huge crowds or anything, but I can absolutely imagine pointing to the sky all cool when it goes up to the highest octave and the subbass comes in...


      EP's never going to get finished, because I never get a chance to record vocals, so I guess I'm just working on the next one now, which also won't get finished because I never get a chance to record vocals...

    • A Night of Clear Skies

      3 months ago

      Metasponge Ocean Voyager

      Earlier this evening I uploaded a new song, 'A Night of Clear Skies'


      It's a sad, introspective little piano piece, with a couple little synth bits thrown in throughout. Not complex at all, just... nice.

      In many ways, despite having never done both just over a year ago, I trust my ability to write music far more than I trust my ability to produce it. I know what I like, therefore I'll know when I make something that makes me think 'wow'.


      At exactly 2:20 in the track is one of those moments.


      It's a short little moment I can only describe as pure yearning. That tear between sadness and hope, that desire for something that might be just out of reach.


      Not sure really, just rambling. It's nice to articulate it sometimes.


      Still working on my underwatery EP too. 90% done but I just never get a chance to record vocals so who knows when that'll ever get finished.

    • Looking for an artist to commission EP artwork

      6 months ago

      Metasponge Ocean Voyager

      Hi. Alright?


      I'm looking to comission an artist to draw a piece of album artwork for me.


      It's more of a present to myself, I'm not pretending that thousands of people are about to go and buy my EP.


      I don't have too many stipulations other than the major theme of the artwork and one inclusion. I also think I'd prefer a pixel-art style, if that's anyone's speciality.


      I'm not too sure how to go about this, but thought I'd ask here first.


      Happy to have a chat with anyone and give more details, as well as give links to (nearly) finished tracks to give you a better idea of the vibe I'm after.

    • HELP ME

      9 months ago

      Metasponge Ocean Voyager

      This is a desperate plea for help.


      Last week I went to Disneyland Paris for a few days with my girlfriend. It was fantastic, had a wonderful time and all that good shit.


      As soon as we get home, nay, we're already feeling it after the flight on the way home... BAM we're both super fucking sick.


      I have a habit of getting sick on flights and in airports (luckily it's often inbound coming home rather than outbound), but it's actually getting fucking ridiculous how frequently I get ill in relation to how often I travel (once or twice a year).


      I know that you're always more at risk in busy crowded areas, particularly on a plane where they're recycling the air, but does anyone have any tips for not getting sick in these places?

    • I don't really use this site anymore

      10 months ago

      Metasponge Ocean Voyager

      Aside from Funhaus, I also don't watch any other content from RT anymore. 


      I don't really have enough of a connection to the website anymore to care if it gets 'fixed'.

      Most of my journals over the last year have just been me self-promo'ing my stuff which, to be fair, is what I'm up to these days.


      Feel free to leave your Twitter username for me. I don't tweet very much, but that way I can at least pretend we're staying in touch Kappa


      Also new Neck Deep is fucking sick mate

        I knew them before Parkway ages ago in my teens. Give Music for the Recently Deceased a listen before the new album, quite different styles

        I don't think I have! I know they did a split with Parkway or something along the lines of years ago, but I just never got round to ever listening to them.

        I'll give their stuff a look!
