I am saying he deserves the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. Your doubt is not sufficient to treat him like shit, which is what everyone has done. Newgrounds is an extremely highly visible website, and it is possible that one famous musician might decide to submit a few short clips here.
Again, the reason he probably left was because people were treating him and his music like crap with no real proof. If proof exists, present it to a mod and let them delete the music. Otherwise, he could be the real deal.
Lemme think... a professional classical score, that was performed by a full orchestra and copyrighted to be used in a blockbuster movie, and released for commercial sale in the soundtrack, I think he won't put his music up here to download for free.
Umm... like the other guy said, he has short samples of much of his work on his official website. Obviously, he has permission to publicly post his some of his work. But, most of his work here could just be "test" projects or something--we really do not know their origin.
Until we know for sure, we have to give him the benefit of the doubt.
And also, I noticed he made some remarks of getting an orchestra to perform a piece by some random NG artist, I doubt busy people will help someone they've never met like that.
Umm.. he specifically stated in his response that most of this stuff was made pre-Newgrounds. He did not make it for Newgrounds; he probably had it lying around for a while.
And if, by chance a high profile movie composer DID come here, I think they'd be more popular, and do something more original, just for a hobby, kind of like Adam Philips.
Well his popularity is shit because the Audio Portal has not given him a fair shake in my opinion. Even if he is a fake, his music is clearly very high quality. Of course, that did not stop people from downvoting it.
As for originality, like he said most of his clips were made a long time ago. He probably had them sitting around on his computer when he uploaded them. However, given the obscene response from the audio regulars that he got, do you actually expect him to sit around and make original work for Newgrounds after that? I am sure he writes lots of original works that go unpublished, and if this place had given him a fair shake, he might have actually put some more of it on here.
I am not saying it is him for sure, but again, it is not terribly unbelievable that one famous artist might find this place and submit a few samples.
Though, if it is him, we chased him off for sure. That is wrong...
Stolen audio =/= underdog. Sorry, but this guy's as real as the tooth fairy.
Prove it is stolen. If there is proof, these songs would not even be here!
