So, in the world of music, I've finally put up my psytrance oriented Virb page, even though I consider my efforts in the subgenre to still be kind of amateurish in nature. You can check it out here. I've only got two tracks up so far, but three more are very close to being done. And I'm probably going to add at least another one after that, which will probably be a little more tribal/experimental in nature.

I understand that psytrance is not everyone's cup of tea. But I like it. I like the complexities of the interlocking melodies that contrast with the relative simplicity of the structure. Well, sometimes. Sometimes even the song structures can be pretty complex, despite the 4/4 kick drum patterns (which is what most people seem to notice).

Eventually I'm going to put up a mix of all of these tracks as one mp3. That's one of the reasons I like Virb. They let you put up much larger mp3s than myspace. In fact, I'm thinking of wiping my myspace page and moving the ambientish/IDM type of stuff to another Virb page.
