With that, I'll be going back to back to making more music. See you all again soon!
I am a musician who does early-2000s style EDM and orchestral music. I also do pattern-based dubstep (which is considered basic).

There comes a time in life where you are no longer what you were. When you turn 6, you are no longer a toddler. When you turn 13, you become a teenager. At 18, you are considered a legal adult. And now... at 20, you are no longer a teenager. I am at that part of my life. Turning 20 is honestly a very... interesting moment. You finally move on with life, but (at the same time) you want to relive your teenage years. My 19th year has honestly been quite the rollercoaster. There have been lots of highs and lows.
Okay, that's it for my speech... As per usual with my birthday, I release new tracks. For my 20th birthday, I did an EP of 3 VIPs under the name "Year 20 EP".

HAPPY PIXEL DAY!
This is actually my first Pixel Day post. Although I didn't do my chiptune, I still made a tribute to Pixel Day here.
Stay safe, and enjoy Pixel Day! I'll get back to doing more music in a bit (got 3 current projects I'm working on... maybe a 4th soon). :)

This is somewhat of a new things I'm doing. I'll just answer some random questions I have been asked for the past couple years or so.
Do you consider yourself very popular?
To put my thoughts plainly, I just sort of exist. Honestly, a lot (and pretty much most) of the people who know me are from Geometry Dash or here. On top of that, my music on Geometry Dash that is popular is either my popular songs from 2020 (Big Red Sun or Welcome to the Post-Apocalypse) or my remixes from 2017. Comparing the two is basically comparing apples to oranges. I've uploaded some of my songs on YouTube, if you want to check those out.
What do you plan on doing with your music in 2021?
What I want to do is to reach out to a few other people in hopes that we could help each other out in making music. I want to help others succeed.
Another way I could answer this question is that I'm in another phase of style exploration. While I wouldn't abandon my 2020 style(s) fully, I think a newer sound design would be appropriate for my evolving music. My music changed quite a bit in 2020, but my sound design hasn't stopped changing. I was recently told how my style resembled the early 2010s classic dubstep, so I may stick with it for a bit. My ideal style that I'm aiming for is the combination of the classic and modern styles of dubstep with melodic elements.
My cinematic/orchestral sound design may stay the same, but I see it as more varied. Certain instruments (e.g. violin ensemble) are the same, but others are depending on the certain atmosphere/environment that the song calls for.
What do you do outside of music?
Not much, really. I'm a very casual person, so I don't really do a lot of stuff unless I actually have to. Apart from that, music is pretty much my main hobby since I make music in a lot of my free time. However, I did (and am still trying) once dabble with writing stories (e.g. Lost in Space, if you are interested).
Frankly, I'm not the usual person that is out and about all the time. I'm not very socially active, so I just do my own stuff. Despite that, I've been seen as both an extrovert and an introvert (I'm both, but I lean more towards the extroverted side). Sometimes I'll be one of the most introverted people you'll see, and other times I'll be one of the most extroverted people you'll see. (Yeah... I'm a bit weird.) I know I mentioned that I wasn't socially active, yet I am seen as an extrovert. Usually, it depends on what the situation/conversation is. It is hard to explain in words than it is actually seeing how I socialize everyday. I may be in a rut one day, and I could be very energetic the next day.
I don't think I've told about who I am as a person before, so here you go!
