Just because there are people around doesn't mean their presence means anything.
Likewise, your presence doesn't mean anything to them.
I guess it works out in a rather odd sense. They don't acknowledge you, and you don't acknowledge them.

Except...this reciprocation just seems to come naturally....

Couldn't think of good leads for this one, so some of this might be a little messy :c

Untitled 11

A shame that something like this had to be relegated to the dreaded Untitled series, but I work until 5:30, it takes me 30 minutes to pick up my mom, and I've...gotten rusty :c

But hey, I'm back somewhat D:

Special thanks to Strobe for teaching me how to make super electric sounding timbres with MIDI :o

This song is a mix of samples and MIDI. Hope this turns out alright :c

The time has come
The time has come to rise and shine
So come on down
And follow me

End's World Part

posted in OHC368 on Oct 29, 2015
So I'm back here.

As very few may know, I quit Battle of the Bits. I'll try to compose here...the place where it all started. It's my first entry in a while, so it might be kind of sloppy. I'll probably work more on this someday, maybe.

it can decide itself to its own being of action

can it feel it? the industrial has just begun.

it was a nightmare

dreamt i was in a dark forest with leaf people dancing around me. i didn't know what was happening until i started feeling myself burn from the inside. i knew right there and then that i was to meet a terrible fate.

such a nightmare indeed.

Untitled 7

posted in OHC298 on Jun 26, 2014
This is probably going to be the last OHC that I do until further notice. There's just too many burdens for me going on every Thursday that I have to deal with now, and I feel that I only scrape enough time to put down just the simple formulaic stuff that I've always been putting down for, like, the past month or so.

Until next time...hopefully sooner than never.

Revenge of the Forever Lost

posted in OHC292 on May 15, 2014
When things crashed and burned, the only way was to savage whatever was salvageable and turn back the clocks. However, there were some things we forgot to salvage, and we had left those relics to be considered lost forever...

...until now.

Well, I did discover a thing called GMS in FL11, so I guess that counts as extraordinary? idk, I made this in about 25 minutes because I started super late :c

The Lost Source of Base

Let It Go (OHC Angelics Remix)

posted in OHC286 on Apr 03, 2014
Losing your grip? Do as the snow queen does! LET IT THE FUCK GO



I released "the bed of diverse flowers" on my Bandcamp a few days ago with promotional consideration by 9-Bit Records! So far, the album has been met with great praise, so much that it's attracted the attention of Attack the Music's DJ REVISE (a hardcore DJ that's also a local buddy of mine)!

Available for free or pay your price on my Bandcamp. Enjoy the music!

They have done her much wrong.
Defiled her, even.

And yet she smiles.

They wonder how she could keep this demeanor after so much.
They don't know a single thing on what's about to come in their futures.

Mixing on studio monitors that have to be quiet because they're in a class room is EVEN MORE NO.

Galaxy Heist

We're going on a heist for all of the galaxy's treasures. Let's become the richest guys in the universe!

Time for the Simple Things

posted in OHC275 on Jan 16, 2014
My first and last vocal entry for a long while; school's gonna be back in session next week :<

=== Lyrics ===
What happened to our life
It is rife with complication
The joy of simplicity
Is the true bliss of our world that shines

It's time to see the true world
A time with no worries and pain
Advancement is really no need
The time for the simple things shall come to our life

(Composer's note: I seem to be super good at making Engrish lyrics)

While We Were Gone

posted in OHC274 on Jan 09, 2014
Faux-lyrics, try singing the following along to the DDRKirby Triangle Whistle

Outside of the spaceship door
we have made it to the moon
It's been such a long long time
Brings back so much memory

But what's this? I cannot recall
Are my eyes deceiving me?
I think I saw something move over there
Could it be that life has thrived here while we're gone!?

(Composer's Note: Ran out of time, ending was rushed)

Time and Space

posted in OHC272 on Dec 26, 2013
I have been meddling with the past out of sheer boredom. What wonderful things will come of my meddling? Maybe I will create a much better future where people get along merrily, or I will create a catastrophe that could wipe out all of existence.

Either way, I'm just carrying on my own way, seeing what things will affect what without a care.

(Composer's note: I have no idea where I was going with this.)

Flying the City

posted in OHC269 on Dec 05, 2013
And suddenly, I have the powers of flight. Time to fly around the city and pretend I'm a protag in a shmup D:

(Composer's Note: somehow, MIDI happened. I'll post MIDI file in the chat or something, idklol)


posted in OHC264 on Oct 31, 2013
Stopped to take a glance at what was in the kitchen, and now you can't move.
Now you're looking it in the eyes, and suddenly, your sanity slowly drains from your soul.
Relax. Be calm. Your suffering will be painless. I guarantee it.

(This will rape your ears.)


posted in OHC261 on Oct 10, 2013
The impact is approaching. Are you ready for it?

(Composer's note: I had no idea where I was going with this. Also, mixing is kinda eh because I was short on time.)

Darkness in Blue

The Flight of Icarus

posted in OHC255 on Aug 29, 2013
With my wax wings, I fly high to the sky, driven by the need to exceed my own expectations.

And then as the wax wings melt away and I fall my nasty descent, I finally have nothing else to lose....

Back to My Roots

Remember this music?
The music that started it all for me?
It's been such a long time.
How far have I grown since then?
It is a wonderful.

Set Me Free

posted in OHC249 on Jul 18, 2013
Please set me free, music, because right now, I am not.

(Composer's note: Many circumstances caused me to somewhat miss this week's OHC, mostly through DINNER AT 6 and SUDDEN TARGET ADVENTURES AT 7.

See you next week, I suppose.)

The Hand That Guides

posted in OHC248 on Jul 11, 2013
Unable to see, you reach out for that hand that will guide you through the wonders that those with sight cannot comprehend. Where this journey will take you, you will never know.

(Composer's note: dragged out. argh)
When the mind loses itself, it transforms into something so terrible, words are not enough to describe how sanity breaking it is. Don't startle the beast during your journey, but if you do, don't stare at it for too long, or you, too, shall fall into insanity.

(Composer's Note: mixing is kinda eh, and I worked on this entire project at 50BPM expecting something slow and chilling, but then ended up getting this.)

Starlight Floor

posted in OHC245 on Jun 20, 2013
Up in the rave, the lights of the dance floor fill the room with much brightness. Come up to the newest high and let loose your sorrows, for it is time to transcend to a plane never before seen by man.

(Composer's note: I tried to make a dance music. Inspirations for this track are kors k and Remo-con.)

Exhibition to Legend Isles

Within these isles come some great surprises that modern man never thought was possible. Take a journey through these long-lost legends, and discover something that's absolutely breathtaking.


posted in OHC242 on May 30, 2013
i think i'm kind of having an existential crisis with me and making music. it seems as if i'm starting to become less of the 8-bit roots that i started off with and more of the electronic influences that i've come to be...

why do i need compatibility?
why do i need 9-bit?

should i or should i not let go of my chipped roots?

i just don't know anymore.

Let's flowing in the river of terriable mixing and trying to sing in DDRKirby(ISQ)'s voice.

Because no one can be DDRKirby(ISQ)'s 50% echo'd reverberated square voice except for DDRKirby(ISQ) and his 50% echo'd reverberated square voice.

I'm on a shark. nom

(Composer's blah: Blah...mixing terriable, i'm give up)

Attack of Dragoon

Take off every ships, for the dragoon is drawing near. We must penetrate its defenses before it strikes the mother planet. Set forth and go!

March of the Virtual Soldiers

These soldiers aren't just any soldiers. These soldiers were meant to discover the curiosities that lie in virtual space. What they seek is not destruction, but discovery and self-development.

Soar through melodies, traveling in the world of the music in search for the precious sound. Along the way, you will hear melodies you may or may not remember. Who knows.

A-zu-ra's OHC Stomach Contents

posted in OHC231 on Mar 14, 2013
As you can see, from eating a bunch of OHC songs that other people have made, A-zu-ra has become horrendously fat.

I guess it's time for me to play more DDR. Because playing DDR will help burn all these OHC songs...eventually.

And then I'll just eat more OHC songs. what the fuck, me

No Complacency

Stay thirsty. Don't just be satisfied with what you have. Work your way to new genres and expand your range. That way, you'll be on the path to becoming a musical prowess.

(Composer's note: So I finally come out of the closet and reveal that I've grown from chiptunes to trance. Holy crap, that's, like, the reverse of what kind of evolution DDRKirby(ISQ) went through D:)

Decide or Destiny

Will you let destiny roll your course, or will you decide where you want to go?

Swan Song

You have lost everything. Your family was murdered by a deranged stranger. Your house was burnt down by said stranger. You have exhausted all the money you have left, and you're left on the streets to wither away into nothing, both figuratively and literally.

There is no need to tell you anything else.

There Was No Surprise

They forgot about his birthday. Even though Facebook ends up reminding everybody that birthdays of other people exist, somehow, they just didn't care to set things up for him.

Such a sadness...but maybe not. Maybe it's much better to celebrate in solitude after all.




...goddammit. I guess there was a surprise after all.

Just took off into space.
Now I look outside into what seems to be a small Earth.
It's so beautiful...I can see the horizons so clear now....

(Composer's Note: This is my first time composing a song in FamiTracker, and this week and the next 4 weeks to come will be comprised of FamiTracker songs due to the upcoming Famicompo Mini Vol. 9. Of course, what you hear now will probably not be the final product for the Famicompo Mini entry.)

...wake of endless melancholy.

(Composer's note: I could have at least diversified the latter half of the song, but I was scrambling to add things that would fit, realizing I only had 30 more minutes to arrange and add things. I also had absolutely no time to double-check the mixing as well, so things may or may not be muddy.)

[ The Hero With No Wings ]

From time and time again, you have been seen as nothing but a bother to all.
Can you redeem yourself before the whole world collapses on you before your eyes?

(Composer's note: My arrangement for this song is bleh.)
In the darkness, there is a strange light just up ahead.
Fight your way past the corruption, and see what the light is.
What kind of strange world will you discover?

(Composer's note: this isn't really too good of a piece. I felt like it could use a little more, but hey, I was too preoccupied with working with the instruments I already had in hand. Plus, I think I might have overdid it with the reverb and delays.[/AzuraComplex])
