This album is largely a compilation of all the tracks I’ve done over roughly the past year. They are listen in order of when they were composed, with a couple exceptions, being Lost Wings coming first as the intro track, and Transcendence coming last, to mark my very first composition.

The name of the album, Platinum, comes from the role of platinum in chemical reactions as a catalyst. It is used to help start many different types of chemical reactions, yet it itself is the same. Likewise, I wanted to do songs in a variety of styles, yet still create a style that is unique to me.

This album was in part done as a project as part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, which runs from grades 6-10. During 10th grade, one can choose to do a “Personal Project” of their choosing, which I decided to do this album. As part of that project, I had to write a report talking about what inspired me for each song, among other things. You can read that here, if you would like.

Tracks 2-4, 6, 8, 13 composed in Musescore 2
Tracks 5, 9, 10, 12 composed in Audio Evoltion Mobile

A Hero’s Walk

Hi all! It’s been a while. Don’t worry, I have been working on music, I just haven’t really felt like posting anything :P. This song I am entering into a contest at my school, so wish me luck! Hope you guys like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Winds

My first post-Platinum track! I wanted to do something that was a bit more acoustic, and also wanted to try writing an acoustic guitar solo (which is harder than it seems). Enjoy!! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Hollow Fractal

I found a new soundfont online that is much better quality than the old one that I’ve been using! I will eventually re-upload all the other songs with the new soundfont, though I’m going to wait and do a lot of those at once. Anyway, though this song has been finished for a while, I was hesitant to upload it because I want to be able to spread my uploads out just a little bit (though almost 2 months since the last one is quite a while, heheh…). Enjoy, and make sure to like and share!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Morning of Yesterday

Hey guys! Another track finished ^w^. It will be a while before I will be able to post any other tracks, because of me having surgery soon. Though I hope I’ll be able to work on music while I am recovering, I don’t know if I will be able to. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this song, and make sure to share with your friends if you like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Awesome Kalafina Piano Medley

Hey peeps! Today one of my favorite piano YouTube players, SirOkihs, upload a 30-minute medley of songs by one of my favorite music groups, Kalafina. I don’t normally share things like this, but I thought this piano medley was really good (for lack of a better word), and both encapsulates the type of music I like, and where I would eventually want to be in terms of piano. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜

If you don’t want to listen to the entire medley, some parts I would recommend are snow falling (8:29), Yane no Mukou ni/ๅฑ‹ๆ นใฎๅ‘ใ“ใ†ใซ (15:33), Musunde Hiraku/ใ‚€ใ™ใ‚“ใงใฒใ‚‰ใ (20:42), sprinter (23:04), and neverending (26:25)
