Radiarc - What was
Relics of a time before a grand eclipse, a derelict metropolis teeming with a living void writhing in every shadow. https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/track/what-was Artwork: https://www.deviantart.com/sharpieboss/art/paper-wings-553567052 What happened? This song is for that album I'm working on; wasn't actually supposed to even be on the album, but the more I thought about it, the more it fit. I've been looking at this picture for months, trying to think of what to do for it, and I'd been messing with the idea of including a section with an abandoned city (well, by civilized beings), but I didn't know how it'd work in with the rest of the plot. After working on this song for a while, everything just fell into place, oddly enough. I'll probably talk about it more at a later time, but the condensed plot is that it's evident something went very wrong here, and the creatures found are nothing like those living on the rest of the planet. The protagonist comes across a large beast, but they both seem to try to avoid each other, when eventually, nearly out of sight of the protagonist, the beast is caught and chastised by Tammy (the character which That Spark was made for), who has warned him multiple times to stay away from the city. Following that will be the second encounter theme with Tammy, which is next on my agenda after another fandom project that's a bit under wraps at the moment. If you like what you hear, please check out my bandcamp: 12 albums, an EP, plus some stuff you won't find anywhere on youtube. https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/ And, if you're feeling particularly generous, I also have a patreon: https://www.patreon.com/radiarc All money donated goes right back into the music. I've had a lot on my mind and a lot going on as of late, but thank goodness for these nearly back-to-back holiday breaks. Hopefully, I'll be able to quit this job soon, because there's honestly nothing I love more than working on music. This album is reminding me exactly why I wanted to make music in the first place, and I'm so ready to finish it off in these upcoming months. Thanks, you all, for helping make this a reality, and I'll keep doing my best to give you guys everything I've got, even when it seems like life itself is trying to push me back. Stay awesome, all. Oh! Almost forgot. Couple things, if you don't know, I *do* have a Discord server: https://discordapp.com/invite/5ehrcg5 Also, I mentioned that second Tammy encounter -- I'm still waiting on the artwork for that, but this is what this song is going to lead into: https://clyp.it/2eyyj4zq Everything until 1:01 is semi-finalized, I just need the artist to get back to me so I can finish this up. Hope you guys like this project so far; I've put in so much work and money into it, and really, I'm just happy to be doing it.

Radiarc - Gravity (Undertale)
https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/album/penumbra-album https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/track/gravity Artwork: http://wiki234.deviantart.com/art/Chara-577237383 I don't think you understand. And even if you did, why wait until nearly everyone is dead? Maybe you need to be reminded...the gravity of this situation is something quite otherworldly. I had a lot of fun with this one. If you think "Huh, this sounds a lot like Impulse," you'd be right. Because it was directly based on Impulse, but it was meant to be more of a sequel rather than a direct copy, since this battle is meant to take place at the end of the Genocide route, should you choose to not join Chara. I actually had another theme planned for this character and was thinking about executing it as a bit of a two-parter, and you can find the rough draft for that at the bottom of the description! Anyways, it was a lot of fun, but really tough because this project nearly maxed out my RAM usage (about 6.8 GB of RAM on this one project) and had 23 different instances of Kontakt open at once, so it was a pain to re-open this project every time I'd listen and think "No, I don't think it's ready yet". That being said, I put up with it and messed with it until I was almost completely satisfied and couldn't identify any areas where I was compromising, and that means a lot to me because I pushed myself to my limits to make sure that not only would I not make something I regretted (can't say I'm overly joyed with how Guilt turned out, but you can't win 'em all), but also that you guys would get the best that I could put forth, so I truly hope you enjoy this! As always, if you like what you hear, be sure to check out my bandcamp: http://radiarc.bandcamp.com/ 7 albums and an EP, plus some stuff you won't find anywhere on youtube! And for you description-readers (or people who at least made it halfway through), thanks as always for showing support in listening to what I have to say. It really does mean a lot, and I like to give back a little something just to show you matter to me. This time, it's that alternate route I was thinking about taking with the song: https://clyp.it/zru51o0p I like how it gives off that "I'm better than you" vibe with those chords; I was really hyped for it, but I felt like the idea needed something a little different, so I scrapped it in favor of Gravity. I might end up trying something with it again, but it'd be different from Impulse and Gravity to avoid too much of the same thing, even if I do really love working with these more laid-back songs. Feel free to leave opinions in the comments section, and if you ever have any questions, just message me; I always respond. Thanks for being here, and I hope you'll stick with me. Stay awesome, you guys!

Radiarc - Eleison
https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/album/penumbra-album There is no forgiveness for those without reason, tortured souls who know no regret. But, when the darkness fades, perhaps the chance of redemption will rise again. Cry once more into the empty night, eleison. https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/track/radiarc-eleison Artwork: http://wilsonaaron06.deviantart.com/art/Mare-in-the-Moon-553195034 (Fantastic stuff by the way, please keep up the amazing work) I had a lot of fun with this one. I'd been wanting to do something pony-related for a while, and I'm pretty thrilled to come back into the scene with this, even if the mix is a bit muddy. The funny thing is that I usually make Luna themes in D# minor and NMM themes in C# minor, but this one utilized some NMM-inspired basslines that were transposed to D#, so it's like a sort of hybrid song (for me, at least). The show itself hasn't inspired me much in a while (which is why I'm thankful for Undertale and its community being so much fun), but during the past few days I've been talking with the pony community a bit, and it kind of inspired me to just go ahead and make something, so I did. Thanks, Sethisto, and thanks to all the rest of you for listening. As usual, if you like what you hear, please check out my bandcamp account: https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/ 7 albums plus some bonus tracks you won't find on youtube! Again, thank you so much for listening to my stuff and reading what I have to say; it really means a lot to me and I honestly would not be able to be doing even half of what you're hearing if it wasn't for your support. One person said they felt bad because they couldn't help me financially, but that's totally fine -- sharing my stuff with others and even just watching through the whole song is good enough for me, and I'm grateful for each and every one of you. This time, for you description-readers, I've got a small reorchestration of something my friend SevenUp/Divebomb was cooking up in relation to Undertale, so I hope you like it. https://clyp.it/epdvpuj2

Radiarc - The Fulcrum (Album Release)
The culmination of centuries, the mistake of one broken girl. Artwork: https://www.deviantart.com/sharpieboss/art/I-remembered-something-very-different-560746681 https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/album/the-fulcrum "I did it...we can finally go home..." she says, staggering as a sickening darkness pulses through her veins and bleeds from her eyes. She falls, but catches herself, kneeling in great agony as her breathing intensifies. Summoning what little bit of strength she has left, she attempts to use this dark energy, reaching forward with her palm facing the ground between her and the boy, but her efforts are in vain; only ashes form, and the wind carries them away. Her eyes begin to cloud over as she rises with sorrow and loathing, muttering between sharp breaths, "I was so tired..." "So tired of being cursed with this frail body, so tired of the voices calling out to me, promising a way out...a way out for all of us." "I see now that I was wrong." "I'm sorry." She grips the gun she'd once held so dearly, but the Null has accepted its new host, pulling her into the air and casting away her only possession. With her final moments of composure, struggling to hold back tears, she looks at the boy before her, his face worried, but understanding. "Don't let it live." I figured I'd save this one for last, because the chord progression comes from a song that's both nostalgic and meaningful to me as well as the plot of this album I've been working on for about a year now. So much has happened since then... Actually, I didn't want to release this because I had more songs I wanted to make, but that's for another time when I'm in a better place in life. Basically, a couple girls act as involuntary gatekeepers for a dark entity telepathically seeking a host until this guy drops out of the sky, and the entity calls for him, too, with the promise of power beyond comprehension, and a way to go home. A lot's been changed, but Paige, the character in Weight of the World, is still very much an extra, though equally unwilling as a newcomer to the dimension, stricken with rage from living a life where a lapse in self-control could kill. I'm sorry I haven't done much horse stuff, but I'm always at a point where I do what I want to do, and as of now, most of it isn't pony related. I've got some ideas up my sleeve, but I've been working through so much stuff this year, and I'm just tired. My car's in the shop for the third time now, thus setting me back again in my efforts to quit this job, and my future is as uncertain as ever. I just want peace of mind at this point. I hope that, at the very least, I'm still putting out quality content, and maybe you all will connect with it like I do. Thanks for sticking around. If you like what you hear, please check out the rest of my bandcamp; I'm re-opening commissions, so DM me on Discord. https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/ https://discord.gg/FqUSnW5 I also have a patreon, if you're feeling extra generous: https://www.patreon.com/radiarc This song, this album...they mean a lot to me. This has been the most difficult year of my life, but hopefully, everything will turn out alright. I've still got faith.

Radiarc - That Spark

Radiarc - That Spark
Artwork: https://www.deviantart.com/myralilth/art/Soar-713892900 https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/track/that-spark No matter what, she'll always have it. Well, I've actually been working pretty consistently on stuff, it's just that nothing's panned out into a full-fledged song, just random ideas here and there. Gotta admit, it kinda sucks, and then I hear about an acquaintance of mine doing a song in about two hours, so the next day, I did the usual and got whatever I could find that had caffeine in it so I could be productive. Took me half a day to make this one; it's a bit of a dual-purpose song, so that made it easier, but I really wanted to go all-out with this one, just to mess with more progressive ideas and complexities I haven't fully explored. Never made a song for my original favorite pony, and I knew I had to change that, but the alternate purpose was for a bit of a secret project I've got in the works. Basically, I just wanted to capture that spark, that spark I used to have, that spark that a certain rainbow pony gave me. It's been too irritating sitting in the background getting frustrated with myself, feeling like maybe I just can't hack it anymore. Same BS that was going on when I made Bury Me, I'm just so done with it all that I wanted to make a statement with this song, showing what I'm capable of and what I stand for. I've still got that spark, and I'll gladly let everyone know that I'm not done yet. Well, as always, if you like what you hear, please check out my bandcamp: https://radiarc.bandcamp.com/ 12 ablums, and EP, plus a whole bunch of stuff you won't find on youtube. And, if you're feeling really generous, I also have a patreon: https://www.patreon.com/radiarc If you wanted to know what this was springboarded from, it was a project I was just gonna call Skip, also related to that secret thing: https://clyp.it/mxgcjjjb Just a sorta aquatic/swampy level thing, but I'm so much happier with this. Also, Aleph Null awaits~

Radiarc - Intro to Darkness

Radiarc - Intro to Darkness
Hey! Read this. Well, I didn't wanna leave you guys with nothing for a week, so... I tried my hand at ambient stuff. I hope you all enjoy this; I'm sorry I wasn't able to get a full orchestral thing done this week. I've had a lot on my mind, and I've actually been sick! Had to cancel two work shifts because of it, and all the rest and medicine hasn't gotten me over it yet; I'm sill coughing up a storm. A storm of ambient music! No, I don't think it's anywhere near amazing, but it was actually interesting to dive out of my usual stuff and try something, well, different, as I've been told to do. Problem is that I don't have too many sound effects to work with, so I made due with what I had and got creative. My pitch shifter was giving me issues (a very loud scratchy sound, to be exact), so I couldn't mess around with that this time ^^; So.... Here's the product of a bit of work, and expect a sequel to this sometime soon; it'll be more musical and perhaps we'll get a real take on a boss fight with Chrysalis. The last one was just a Countdown to Darkness......you've yet to experience what lies beyond that.
