Even though a bit ashamed since this is basicly self-promotion, I do apply to the list of underdog musicians you posted and I don't get much feedback and constructive criticism which I'd love.
I go by the artist name Holy Konni, and have for the past months mostly composed chipmusic. I made an album entirely on theNintendo Gameboy, and have posted a few tracks from it on the Portal. Right now I'm making an ambient/chillout/chip/spacey album called "earth child, answer already" which is actually DONE and is as we speak mastered by a mate.. I'm super stoked to tell you that It will be released on CASSETTE TAPE!! which will be sold for around 3.5 pounds.
I make music with LSDJ for theGameboy and LGPT for thePSP, as you can tell I love trackers. Post production is done in FL. I also play guitar and my next project will be an acoustic album with guitar and singing and stuff. I'm active at 8bc.org and my website is called freizeitmeister.org
I hope this was enough information to make you interested, and I hope I can get a little more exposure on NG because right now I'm pretty unnoticed.
Thank you for listening! :)
