Thank you for sharing your rock, metal and associated genres of music with us on Newgrounds, particularly in the NGADM.
I'm getting started on planning out some kind of workshop to improve the over all quality of rock and metal (including my own) submitted to Newgrounds and would love to work with you all in some form or another to achieve that goal.
My intention is highly impure - I want our genre to dominate NGADM! (joking... mostly) But what I want more than anything is more awesome music to listen to and work on with fellow rockers/metal heads/mixing nerds.
I want to learn from you, I want to share how/why I do what I do and I want us to all grow together.
I think it would need to happen on Discord or something similar, or maybe an entirely new forum of sorts. I currently live In Japan so my time zone is something crazy like +15 for some parts of the Americas. Maybe a forum is the way to go. Thoughts? Newgrounds forum isn't adapted to our needs in this situation.
For those of you who don't know who I am, I've been a judge on NGADM 3 times and also ran it last year (2018). I've produced a few indie albums and written a few game, videos and animation soundtracks, as well as uploaded over 200 (bad) music videos to YouTube. I've been playing guitar for 16 years and recording for 14. I am a languages teacher and have been for about 6 years now. My core values are healthy communication (haha!), respect and compassion, I hope to run this workshop with this in mind.
In conclusion, I'm definitely not a professional, there are clear issues in my own work which I am still striving to overcome (ask me for a list, I can tell you right away). However, I hope I can bring something to the table even if that thing is only to bring us all together to learn from each other.
Please also tag anyone you think would be interested or would like to lead alongside myself.
