MasKhaos is official!

So, it seems that I have an entirely new music project that I am collaborating for!
My good friends, Brendan Pulk and Cliff Meachem, and I decided to form together into an electronica/progressive house/dubstep group by the name of MasKhaos.

Since I already have equipment for both recording/producing and live performance, including audio interface (M-Audio ProjectMix I/O, M-Audio Oxygen 49, a decent computer, and a few vocal microphones) getting started wasn't as hard as I though it was going to be. We acquired Ableton Live 8, picked up a Novation Launchpad and a Numark DJ Set (it is one of the cheaper ones. We will get the better one later), and in the future, plan to grow our operation,

We are still in the composition phase, however. Live performance and local concert booking will come after we get enough material out worth a performance.

... but one thing I love about the Launchpad is that we can literally throw random melodies, chords, and loops we composed into an Ableton track and do a random composition for live performance.

Given I've seen some fairly professional and well acknowledged electronic groups/artists make a dent in the local scene here in Minneapolis, I'd say we have a base to gain some notice.


Of course, this is NG news because we've discussed putting up just a few of our compositions on newgrounds for exposure, review, and hopefully some attribution if one of you beautiful flash developers want to utilize our submissions.

With that said, we plan on making this a very professional operation in the long run, with an actual, factual music presence... so only a limited number of tracks will be allowed up here, and our material will be monitored for abuse. (despite that common misconception/miswording on the audio submission page about 'NewGrounds public domain" ... which I'd like to remind people... is only 'public domain' for flash developers in the NG community and NOT anywhere else)

I conceive, since this type of thing has happened before on Newgrounds,... many times,... that it will likely happen at some point here,... but we plan on spreading our presence all over the necessary audio portals to keep ourselves active in the internet audio/music communities, and do not plan on making ourselves seem like 'modest musicians' in the least.

tl;dr .... MasKhaos!! Check out our music! ---------> {MasKhaos}

So, in a nutshell, my ZeroBox Productions user account was supposed to be my NG front for an identity in music composition and spanning out in the community. Unfortunately, when all it takes is a single click on the 'ban' button to dismantle an entire weeks work,... I've resorted to jumping back on an older NG account.

I'm certainly not proud of the name ProjektDro anymore, but NewGrounds has inflated beyond being a simple place to host anything, and since 2007, it has been a place which favors frequent users when it comes to account overrides (like name changes and the such). I can only imagine the type of hell the staff go through day in and out concerning requests. Same garbage different day.

I'm just going to keep the account name, and press the notion of ZeroBox whenever I can.

STATUS: New account fail! ... Reviving old account!

If it makes a difference:

If my comments about my music not getting approved has any effect on my getting approved, please disregard them and know that I have utmost respect for the mods on NG.

Its been more than 4 days since I've submitted to the Audio Portal, and I still have yet to be approved!

I feel like I wanna choke-a-bitch! X(


I'm sure the Audio Mod have their reasons. Its summer-time, so they have better things to do with their time than spend the day at a computer screen.

My cellphone died last night while I was in the middle of a rain storm. That was just plain unfortunate!
I think I might need to buy a new one now. =(

New kid on the block!

Greetings all!

I doubt anyone will have the mind to read this.
I've signed up for Newgrounds as of yesterday, and I've already begun uploading songs/tracks for public use and recognition. I'm still waiting to get approved by the Audio Mods tho. =(

Thats perhaps the only negative/obstacle I've encountered thus far. I'm not sure how often they are on, but I'm hoping my music starts getting published.
