Hey, how’s it going?
It’s quite likely that this is going to come out about a week after I write it, since that’s when I plan to release the website. How do you like it so far? My assumption is that most of the visitors will be coming from Newgrounds and Twitter, so, for the time being, if there are any broken elements, you can send me a message through those. My knowledge about this web thing is not very big but I’m practicing! Anyhow…
I’m sure you can imagine how having a website would be useful, but, for this blog page specifically, my big plan is to be able to periodically share some cool stuff that other people have made. So…
ERROR IN PROGRESS - Ceiba Pentandra
<<My recommendation for today is ‘Ceiba Pentandra’!!!>>
I used to write album reviews when I was younger, and none of them were good at all. I think the most annoying aspect of a review is when you can tell the person is using words they have never used before; so this will be rather guileless.
This is a very visual and narrative album to me. Every track is a little piece of the story. Almost all of them go well over the 5min mark — so after a while, you start living inside the songs.
I am, by some unquantifiable metric, a little more blockheaded than the average person, in the sense that I’m kinda relaxed by ‘scary’ music. It’s to a level that, in theory, this would turn out to be a comfy album to listen to, but this album still sounds scary to me.‘Cerro Negro’ in particular freak me out. It sounds like dogs are mauling each other at some points. I can’t even see them. No one else could make these textures in this particular way.
With that said, I think this album is an example of genuine virtuosic ability in tone and cohesiveness. The music is already strong, but when you combine it with the album cover and titles, it’s better than most books. (If I were a good reviewer, I would insert some blurb here being confident and smug about my statement, but I’m completely right anyways so I won’t even bother.)
“My Face At The Bottom Of The Well”; “They See Me But I Don’t”. When you read all of them together, it’s almost like a poem. When you listen to all of them together, It’s almost like a story. When you look at it, it’s still a picture.
If you do all three at the same time, it’s hard to describe. I think it’s cool. (⌐■_■)
VERDICT: I would love to read an ERROR IN PROGRESS story.
PS: Here’s a free code for the album:
Go on https://errorinprogress.bandcamp.com/yum to redeem it! It will show up on your Bandcamp collection. (⌐■_■)b
To close things off, here’s the first official™ zona.plankton poll, where you can decide which one of the ‘Azumanga Daioh!’ students (and Chiyo’s dad) most resemble you, or vice-versa. I’m more of a Tomo.
I don’t want to make this long-winded, especially for the first post, so I’m ending it here. Again, thank you so much for visiting! Making the website has been super fun and I hope I can continue to improve it. Also, you already know this, but lots more drawings and music will come very soon. Have a good day︵‿
Signed, with love,
