A bit about me:
Hello there. I am an amateur writer, pianist, and composer, and I am a very handsome gentle man. (*w*) I hope you enjoy browsing the site.
My writing and storytelling is mainly inspired by certain visual novels (mostly adult ones), animanga, documentaries, and non-fiction. I also take inspiration from a pinch of philosophical babble whether from excerpts of philosophical texts by Nietzsche or Wittgenstein, being fascinated by quotes like "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world. - Ludwig Wittgenstein", or even emo social media posts by people when they're emo or horny, like "I never had the courage to say what I really mean to say, until I told you I love you. (insert superbly polished couple pic here) - Boomer Kid's anonymous romantic friend."
Also, I can read and view almost anything. You know what I mean, hehehe. Really liking them is another matter, but it's best to just enjoy the heck out of stuff. Animanga I seem to view more include slice of life with specific themes like music (e.g. Nodame Cantabile, Hibike! Euphonium) or some sports, though I guess they call them sports anime rather than slice of life. I like action ranging from semi-realism (Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen, Vagabond), hot-blooded cinematic action everyone knows from a bunch of stuff, to action shows that may or may not be more mellow in action but more in-depth with character or setting (Grimgar, Green Blood...). I also fancy some romance, reading a bunch of ecchi, uh, "romance" manga.
As for music, I also can listen to anything ranging from folk music and opera to dubstep, metal, jazz, and Vocaloid. Most of the time, though, I tend to listen to classical music, progressive rock, and Japanese electronic music.
I like a bunch of classical music composers (it can be specifically called classical art music to me at least, since the pop music back then was folk music) ranging from "early music" like Buxtehude to Late Romantic and Post Romantic like Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev, though I can swallow certain atonal music as well, such as some music by Sorabji and Shoenberg. My favourite composer for the piano is Chopin, favourite for the orchestra is Richard Strauss, and favourite for sheer harmony regardless of instrumentation, style, and expression is J.S. Bach. Speaking of J.S. Bach and the Baroque period or earlier, though I play the piano, I dig all keyboard instruments ranging from the harpsichord, clavichord, organ, to the earliest fortepianos and the modern grands of today, and I dream of playing all keyboard instruments. I don't claim to know a whole lot about various composers though. The same for other music genres.
I don't know much progressive rock bands, only knowing of the genre's name since 2015, but I dig prog rock from the 60s or 70s like Pink Floyd, Genesis when it was primarily prog rock, Crimson King, to modern prog rock like Neal Morse, Anathema, and Ling Tosite Sigure/TK from Ling Tosite Sigure.
I first found out about Japanese electronic music through Vocaloid, first knowing of Vocaloid's pop music like so many other Vocaloid listeners. Eventually, I stopped listening to Vocaloid pop as much and started listening to "Vocaloid trance" and eventually non-vocal trance and more. Some producers I like include Taishi (this producer composes in so many different styles and has greatly inspired me to compose electronic music on top of just acoustic music), HSP (also the illustrator of OreImo), Soh Yoshioka, and more. I have been exposed to other electronic music before, however. One of the first composers I ever liked is a Canadian electronic music producer dubbed Rom Di Prisco.
For anime soundtracks, I'm especially fond of Taku Iwasaki. He's able to compose in so many different styles from orchestral to dubstep.
Obviously I don't seem to be interested in pop music as much, but I can enjoy some pop music too. Pieces of music in general are individual amalgamations of various genres including pop, genres which at times can be very subjective to define, while delivering its own unique experience. I believe fiction is the same. It's much better to enjoy the heck out of stuff if it does no harm.
7 April 2016: Returning to writing after taking an unannounced hiatus. Will reread some of my existing Ballade chapters while continuing to write chapter 7. Chapter 7's currently 4k words long.
25 January 2016: Did some edits to polish up chapters 1 and 6 of Ballade. My choice to edit previous chapters is often on a whim, so this may happen occasionally. Still in the early stages of writing chapter 7, but I do want to write more!
22 January 2016: Put up a new cover for Ballade.
19 January 2016: Chapter 6 of Ballade has been uploaded. It's the longest chapter so far, with the extras after the chapter contributing to the word count as it always does. Yes, I went Captain Obvious there. Will start writing chapter 7 very soon!
14 January 2016: Chapter 6 of Ballade is done at 8k words. Will proceed with editing!
11 January 2016: Chapter 6 of Ballade is at 4k words. Had a few blocks, but still going strong! Sorry if it's taking quite some time! Made a wrong pronouncement of fact in the trivia section in chapter 5 regarding enharmonics, so I corrected that.
"Art is limitless. It's a simple, yet euphoric leisure."
