I am working on a new project. To start it off, it's going to be a site where musicians can upload short loops (about a minute in length) along with a gif. This idea sprung up from my beat, "Majestic Deer Crossing." I was just searching for neat little gifs to get inspiration from for a beat, and after finishing the beat, I got the idea to make a little webpage with that gif set as the background and to have the beat play.
Below are a few sample pages (static) to go along with the concept. The final product will be a portal where people can select a beat from a screen of tiles (the tiles represent each beat with the accompanying gif) and be sent to the beat's page.

I make music as a way to vent how I feel at a given moment. I don't make music for fame, for money, or any of that bullshit. I treat it as an art like anything I do. Everything I do has a purpose and I hope that when you listen to what I make, you feel it.
My recent music (Acid Jazz) is inspired by Mark Farina's "Mushroom Jazz" which is a mixture of hip-hop, jazz, and house. I have every volume of Mushroom Jazz burned to disc, and it's all I ever play whenever I'm driving. It's a style that I've found to be unique, and chill. My friends would always say, "Gavin man, you listen to some really chill stuff, that's awesome dude." or they comment on how I always find unique music.
I used to listen and produce electronic music such as Drum and Bass, Dubstep, Trance, House, but something about Acid Jazz or Jazz-Hop just kept me hooked. I guess it's the feeling that I get when I find good old music and give it life again for newer generations to appreciate. It's giving it a new beat, a new rush if you will. I wouldn't call it a remix like with other genres, but a rebirth. It's a genre that definitely needs appreciation.

I just signed up for a challenge.
I have joined the WeeklyBeats project where you are challenged to make a new song every week.
That means a new song will be on Newgrounds every week!!!!
This is also a great opportunity for me to get back to my old writing style, but with my improved production skill.
