I guess I'll nominate myself for this. Hello, my name is Alex. I create all kinds of music, but mostly ambient, chiptune, and death metal music. The driving force in my music generally is my odd synesthesia experiences. Basically, I hear a sound or scale and I experience a color or multitude of colours and shapes, generally slightly changing the hue and brightness of my perception. (sorry for that, I just feel its a big part of my music >_<)
Anyway, I mostly will noodle around on my keyboard or guitar till I hear a nice melody or chord group, then try and use it in FL Studio. I've been making music for about 6 years now. I'm always experimenting with sounds and textures. Either way, I make music that suits my mood, or the colour I feel like working with, creating a memory of that feeling, even if I may be the only one who completely understands the song. So, come check my stuff out, maybe you'll like it!

Hey, I might as well nominate myself for this list. My name is Stupor!

I've been making music digitally for a few months now.

I strive to work in a wide variety of genres, and am pretty successful in that effort!

My tracks usually revolve around unique melodies, which is why I keep my ears open for inspiration throughout the entire day. These melodies can be randomly played on the piano by yours truly, suddenly imagined and then quickly recorded, or heard amidst the noises of everyday life.

I use and swear by FL Studio 7.


Sometimes, it would rain men. "Hallelujah!", we would cry. Thousands were killed.

This thread still active?
No matter, I still think i shall nominate NuclearDuckie. He is a close friend of mine, but has a gift for FL.
HOWEVER, me and him collaborate a fair bit, so a couple of the songs I've submitted are made by me and him.
Oh yeah, genres are currently only techno/dnb sort of easy to listen to so far on his account, but i feel a wave of NL Hardcore is amassing. As for our collaborations - Trance/Hardcore
Thanks

This is the Light Speed Dragon, second member of the Chaos Team but my real name is Samuel.

I've been making music ever since high school but I've been a lover of it since I was kid. I love hardcore rock, techno, classical, and hip-hop music. My style of music is a little mixture of them all.
Recently I've been making music for video games and also for me and Chaos Phoenix's comic "Chaos Element".

I use Fruity loops 7 and I've been recently working with hypersonic which you'll more than likely hear in my recent and upcoming songs. So if your looking for good instruments try hypersonic out because it has some quality sounds.

As for my page, you can check it out right here My Page
Enjoy!!!

Yo NG! I'm here to nominate myself, I seem to only get random votes and reviews here and there and I'd really like to get a more consistent base of listeners. I've got 18 submissions to the hip-hip portal over the course of about 6 months or so but some of the songs are older than that. I've been rapping for a about 3 years, it all started with a friend of mine, half-drunk, we decided to do a Silent hill collabo. The mic quality was horrendous and it never made up to the site but this sparked a series of other collabos typically made while shit faced. I feel over the 3 years since I started I have evolved a lot from drunken "scream into the mic fests" maybe you all will agree or maybe disagree...check me out!

Hey guys, I'm Bossler13. I've been playing instruments for 10 years now, and composing music for about six months. The only way I've been getting any listens for my music is by annoying the hell out of my friends trying to get them to get me more exposure. As you may have guessed, that hasn't worked so well. I could really use the exposure here and I would love to have a legit fan base.

I nominate:

BoxStacker

He doesn't have much uploaded now but its among the most profesional sounding music I've heard from NG. He's just getting into the site and needs some exposure.

He writes and remixes trance/house, and its beyond better then the typical NG slosh.

Well, Hi. My real name is Julio, I'm from Brazil. I'm really crazy about music in general. I only do 2 things during my free time that isn't involved with alcohol, and studying, and those 2 things are music and video games. The bad thing about video games is that you don't create anything new with it. Music is my way of getting creative and also is a great way of distraction. If you hear my tunes, you'll see that my style is pretty inconsitent, that's because I listen almost to anything. Like an old sage always said:"There are only two kinds of music: the good music, and the bad one."

Adios.

Hi there. My name is Brian, but you can call me 'Static'. I'd like to nominate myself to be an Underdog. I first started 'making music' about three years ago, on the flash game we all know and love, Punk O Matic. It was fun for at least a little bit, but none of it was my own. I wanted to make my own sound.

After a while I learned about FL Studio. I got the demo, and began creating some horrible sounding riffs on FL Slayer. I slowly got better and better using the vst and eventually made 'Evil Smiles in the Twilight.' It was just another average song on the portal, but that was perfectly fine with me. I continued making short songs, FL Slayer as my driving force, and continued making average songs, that is, until I created my first masterpiece of sorts, 'Whispering to Shadows.' With this song, I had created my own individual sound. Some love it, and some hate it.

After this songs success, I kept in mind the feeling, the tone, of the song, and began secretly working on my second 'Ambi-Dustrial' song, 'Cyborg.' I just released it yesterday, and so far it's score is damaged due to a 'zero-bomber' attack when I first uploaded it. Hopefully you all will like it.

Here's the link to all of my audio.

http://staticstigma.newgrounds.com/audio /

Hopefully you'll like my sound. Enjoy!

Self nominations

- No posting links to your songs
This isn't the Audio Advertisement thread. You can post links to your profile only, and the rest of NG will decide what songs of yours to showcase.

- By this.. Feel free to check it out! hehe ;D

- Tell us about yourself
Give us a bit of history! How long have you been doing music? What programs do you use

-I use Fruity loops, i've been (trying) to create music for a year now or so.

Hey everyone, my name is Damon Guyett as you can see, and I've been involved with music for as long as I remember. My grandfather had a piano in the basement and every time i came up to visit, first think i would do is grab a couple chocolate chip cookies, a soda and head on down to pound out some tunes. Of course, I never started piano lessons till I was about 12 or so, so for the first 11 years I was just banging randomly on the keys (producing some interesting sounds i must say!). I picked up the guitar on my 13th birthday when my mom bought me a cheap beginners Magnum guitar, and never took lessons, taught myself by ear and tabs and a guitar book. I started writing lyrics around grade 7, grade 8.. what i usually did was study books on old legends of ghosts/death, medieval times, fairytales, etc.. and arranged excerpts of those books into song form. This wasn't my ONLY method of lyric writing, I did write my own original lyrics, but sometimes i would be addicted to a certain song and i would take that songs structure and use it as my foundation. I once wrote a song called "My Imaginary Friend" which was meant to be campy and kiddy, but Ive since lost the book i wrote it in (plus many others) and I'm hoping it will turn up sooner or later. For piano lessons, I last from Intro -> grade 5 and I quit, so I now I dont practice very often, even though i do still play, it's usually just whatever comes to mind. I would like to pick up on teach myself piano further, when i have time. Guitar possibly as well. As far as the music I listen to, you guys can check me out on my LastFM profile to get an idea. So without further ado, I'm proud to present...

Me! :3

Yeah.

I've taken quite a break from NG, not that I wanted to, but I'd have to say man, the amount of self-nominations on here is getting to be pretty disgusting.

It's gotten to the point where if I see someone post a "self-nomination", I completely disregard it.
Not to be a butthole but really..

If you spend more time posting reviews on other artist's music then you would get noticed more.

Eh, ANYWAY

I'd like to make a self nomination...

Haha, no.

I would like to nominate this guy named Soundprank.

Now, when you go see his page you may find it a bit redundant to check him out since it has been a while since he's posted anything but the music he makes (which is dance/techno) is astounding and well mastered!

I'm hoping that maybe, if he happens to come back to NG one day and sees that his barren review spots are now exploding with reviews and comments, he may come back and dazzle us with more of his gift.

My favorites would have to be Walks in Rain, Dreamer by Day, Broken Smoke..

Who am I kidding?
There's not one song he's submitted that I'm NOT in love with.

My second nomination has to go to my main man Tomppaah. He's into classical.

But .. gah..

He leaves me speechless.

His pieces are rather short yet they are everything but short-coming melodically.

I could see him composing for top notch rpg games.

Hands down.

My favorites would have to be.. Orchestral Intro, The Battle Of Life, and Tropicana (I forgot to mention that he delves in electronic sounds too.)

Enjoy. :)

I agree; Tomppah (sp) makes some pretty damn good music that a classical jerk like me loves to listen to.

Another guy worthy of being checked out is Calamaistr. Now, I know several of you APers out there can be pretty off-put on his overstated and brash opinions on music, but I think at the very least a lot of his songs are interesting and unique that at LEAST warrants some listening, especially if you are sick of the ho-hum generic 8-bit music that doesn't try or other songs of that nature.

Now for real...

I nominate T3animator. He thinks he's bad at FL Studio, but he is so wrong. Don't let the low scores fool you, a handful of his songs are surprisingly very well done, even though he has such little popularity. Here are my favourite songs from him:

Although a few of his songs are slight let-downs, most of his songs are great, with a lot of variety and uniqueness to them.

Anyway, now, because I'm self-centered and greedy, I'd like to nominate myself...

It all started 4 years ago when I decided to start learning the piano. I found a big interest in music, and it wasn't too long (OK, maybe it was a little long...) before I got FL Studio 8, and started producing, and I've been producing for a little over a year, I think. My first songs were horrible, and I thought there wasn't any hope for me, but recently, for some really wierd reason, I've been getting an unusual amount of positive feedback on my new songs. At first I only made melodies of songs with Finale Notepad, and transferred those melodies to a friend of mine who added instruments, since I didn't have FL Studio, but once I got FL Studio, I started composing on my own.

My first proper song with FL Studio was Distant Seas, which naturally was covered with FL presets. I soon moved on to my song Mass Illusion, which was still covered in presets, but at least was listen-able. After that, I submitted quite a few songs and some remixes. My songs started getting good ever since I submitted my All Hail Windows tracks, which are songs made entirely out of XP sounds and drums. From then, I submitted Windows Wars (a combination of loads of Windows sound effects, including Vista and Windows 2000), which is currently my best track with 16 reviews all 10/10 and 1 review an 8, soon after I finished The Essence of Time which was my first proper attempt at classical/hip-hop and then my latest right now, which is Power of the Piano, and has 5 10/10 reviews.

I played around with a lot of genres throughout my time producing, including Hip-Hop, Jazz, DnB, Heavy Metal, Rock, and Dance, but I seem to do better in a mixture of Classical and Hip Hop or Dance. I'm also almost done with an Album I'm doing with Scooter-16, called Supernova, and I currently have around 10 songs dying to get submitted. Although I focus quite a lot more on reviewing recently (my reviews are terribly long), I still continue composing, and who knows, maybe some day I'll submit a song which is worth downloading XD.

Anyway, that's pretty much my story :3.

DJ-Chilvan is an amazing artist. He definitely deserves a spot in this thread, and a lot of his songs deserve a spot in the top 5. He's good at making classical (clicky), dance (clicky), techno (clicky) and even made a few good hip-hop and rock songs too, so as you can see he's an artist of many genres. My faves from him are:

He definitely qualifies for this thread, and I'm sure that if you take a look at his audio, you won't be disappointed. His songs, due to 0-bombing, never become popular, but give him a chance, and see what I mean when I say "his songs rock".

Zomg, ai am laik teh beest underdog fainder.

So to me this thread is another prime example of a good idea gone to the dogs. As it stands now, this is just another audio advertisements thread (mind you, at least here people post reasonably well written bios and explanations of their work).
