I've been looking into a few options for embedding audio onto my website. First incarnation of which was just a simple sound player on html, but it gives no insight. Second incarnation was Soundwise, which was useful for encouraging long-tail subscribers but I haven't been able to onboard/convert listeners into subscribers, so it has not been useful. I don't like that it makes the listener click several times before the music starts playing. Now, I'm trying another app, and it has a sound player. The UI is really distasteful so far, only very basic RBG color customizations. The more premium alternative is Reelcrafter, which costs so much because it is a subscription-based company. I don't have enough audio files yet to make that worth it, but will look into it for the future. For now, What I'm using is ok. Check it out on my demo page!
A new picture of me is now on the home page, as well as de-cluttering of the webpages.
Many elements of media, including YouTube videos, fonts, playlists... are now mobile-friendly.
Made clearer the difference between categories and sub-categories. Added my email as the top header of the site.
New Demo out called "Match Point". Check it out on the Videos and Sounds> Visual Projects page!
Home page houses external links now, in addition to the ways to support page. Re-categorized videos into different genres, specifically a page for piano performances. Aggregated more links from several past YouTube accounts to videos and sounds page. Clarified the function of the "music" page.
Will upload brand new orchestral music, "Match Point", shortly. Pending registration.
In the past week I've revamped the aesthetics of the navigation menu, as well as more pictures for the headers of each page.
In addition, I got a new comment on the philosophy blog, and now decided to keep writing my blogs. It's a trip to read it in the years down the line. When I read that 2014 blog entry, it really brought me back and I like it! So, here's going to be me in 2021, writing for me in 2030 (or sometime in the near future even!).
Hi all! I'm not sure who reads this, but basically I reformatted the sitemap of this website. First off, I got a new instagram account due to inability for me to log in to the previous one. So, instead of piano symbols, it is now piano symbol. one word.
Next, I put a few additional pictures on various pages' headers to make it more snazzy.
I also got rid of my upcoming concerts page, because I have none that I know of. Every thing has been on hold, and I haven't really been seeking out opportunities on the performance side of things. Mostly, getting busy with composing and producing!
I added the audiosparx microsite, with one track loaded. It should automatically play. So far, I've only booby-trapped myself; it is constantly playing. Is this good or bad? Let me know in the comments. I think it's annoying for me, but may be good for others. Actually, it is not so annoying for me. I oftentimes do not revisit my works after the project is over, so this could be a great way to force myself to get used to hearing my own music!
That's it for now. Until next time,
