I'm a gamer.

I've played video games for ages; since I was 5, I think. I still play them now. I love them, and I especially love the music in them. It's pretty much my favorite genre. I'm currently in college, with the goal of getting into the industry as (hopefully) a musician. The last semester, though, I realized I have a big problem.

I've never composed anything original longer than 30 seconds in my life. I'm usually working on theory exercises, and those have very definitive beginning and ends, with rules I have to follow. I've yet to make a remix or arrangement of existing music, much less a work of my own.

Browsing the Audio Portal the past few months, I figured this would be the perfect place to submit both remixes and arrangements and my own original works. I've enjoyed the music I've heard here, and hope that I'll be able to add to it.

I've decided to start off by arranging and remixing video game music I'm familiar with, so I have a sound and tune to start with and build off of. Once I'm more familiar with the programs I've got and my own skill, I'll start working on my own original music.

I will be going back to college in 3-4 months, and I hope to be working a job soon too. I also can't give up my inspiration (video games). But I promise to get a few pieces up this summer.
I definitely will appreciate any constructive criticism you can give. I know I'm not the best, but I want to get better. You guys and girls will be a major part of my improvement.
