I'm still a little in shock. I was so happy to have passed the auditions, but that's one thing. Then the REAL competition starts, and that, is a whole other thing entirely. With everyone being fueled by their competitive streaks, their A-game really is on, so I was really in for a challenge. I was laid in bed, dreading checking the results (I'm not sure why to be honest, I wouldn't have minded losing, it was actually what I fully expected)!
How I got to Round 2, let along got there with the fifth highest ranking this round is beyond me. There are SO many talented people on here, seriously. Professional sound engineers and musicians who have been doing what they do for a very long while now. I'm really, really grateful. I'm a little more fearful of Round 2 now because the pressure genuinely is on. The difference between this coming entry is that I didn't feel too much pressure for Round 1, simply because I expected to have lost. I just did something close to my heart that I loved to make.
Now, I've gotta mix it up and create something amazing. This is an interesting and exciting competition indeed!
I've made a Twitter account. Feel free to follow me or contact me via the account here.
I'm approaching 850 subscribers on my personal YT music channel which I'm really thankful for. Feel free to check it out for more of my work!
Not sure how many people will get to hear them on here but time will tell!
so I guess this makes me the newest of newgrounders, howdy. My name's Jordi.
keeping it brief, I'm primarily a musician. I'm hugely inspired by the celtic genre of music, as well as Asian and soundtrack music (probably from growing up playing Final Fantasy and listening to Nobuo Uematsu).
I sing and mainly play the piano and harp, but can play guitar and some other woodwind instruments at a basic level. I enjoy digitally arranging too; I use FL Studio 10.
I'll post some compositions etc. up soon enough but for now, feel free to check out my YouTube channel here
All the best and have a good day.
