I make music and sounds. I post mostly on newgrounds so people can use them in games and such. My full albums can be found on my home page below.

The "your musical life journey" challenge!

Posted by Midnights-Ocean - April 23rd, 2019

So I did it finally. From earliest memory to present, the most influential and/or significant pieces of music you heard in your life. Rules are relatively simple. Tunes only, no full albums. It's not about what music you liked or recommend the most. It's about what impacted you, for better or worse, musically during your journey in life up till today. Something to keep in mind, the experience of the moment when you heard a tune is significant. It could be a tune you listened to a million times and shaped your style or it could be a tune you heard once and it became part of a highly significant memory in your life. The order should be in the order you HEARD them NOT the order in which they were released/created. Active links to each tune should be posted with artist name or at least listening source. Try not to post more than 6 works by the same artist, in order to avoid redundancy and focus attention to those works that really impacted you. Try to avoid more than 3 posts that are not directly a piece of music but are still music related. Add decade indication. Try to keep the list at a count of roughly 100 posts or so (150 max), again to try to force focus on the most significant pieces.

Mine took me a few weeks but here goes:
