This album is a collection of the best songs I made between 2012 and 2016. All of them have been updated to bring a level of polish that I believe helps the songs reach their maximum potential. Without further ado, I present to you the first two tracks off this album!

As you walk alone through the woods, the shadows cast by the moon begin to prey upon your imagination...
Ah yes, this one. This is the first song I started working on after I bought Massive (a synthesizer plugin). I spent a good amount of time learning how to make the large pad sounds and wobbles in this song as it was the first time I had a synth that powerful to work with. It easily blew everything else I had at the time out of the water. Pay attention especially at the intro for the synthesizer pad. That single sound brought my laptop to it's knees and prompted me to build the computer I now use for streaming. Also, the atmospheric sounds in the beginning are a recording I made in my parent's backyard. It was a nice summer night in 2012 and I had just gotten a stereo field recorder, so I set to recording all sorts of things including the sample you hear in the song.
Your goal seems to be just out of your grasp. Victory always slipping away at the last minute. You fight on, knowing it will be worth it...
This song took the most work for me to revamp when I decided to put this album together. The mixing was a mess, the project was missing samples, and I couldn't seem to get the kick right. I dreaded working on this song the most, but in the end, it was worth it! This song was a collaboration with Re-Think. At first, the timing of the song threw me off as it has phrases of seven bars during the main sections, rather than a more typical four or eight. The oddness of it gives it a sense of reaching, but never quite attaining - a feeling that matches the emotions that went into its creation. https://re-think.bandcamp.com
