Live Music Session Video

2011-06-26 14:22:15 by kelwynshade

So, after toying with the idea for ages, I decided to go ahead and record a live music session. The idea was just to sit down, hit the record button, and play; no planning at all. So, have a look and let me know if this is something you'd be interested to see more of.

Take care, peeps.

New Game "SHMUP" Coming Soon. RAD Soundtrack!

2011-06-01 15:24:41 by kelwynshade

I worked, again, pretty closely with my buddy Afro-Ninja on the soundtrack to the newest upcoming game "SHMUP". Check out the trailer here:

I'll be posting a few of the tracks as soon as the game is released. Get pumped!

New Music Blog!

2010-09-02 08:25:48 by kelwynshade

I went ahead and decided that a good spot to keep update on the music I work on, among other things, would be in a blog since I have enough time to manage it more than a full fledged website.

Feel free to jump over to: THE MUSIC OF KELWYNSHADE

Feel free to follow the blog and post comments.

Well, it finally hit a goal of mine.

Long Walk Home, a sad yet uplifting piano track I composed some time ago broke the 5,000 download mark.

I told myself that if it hit 5,000 downloads, I would revisit the track with my new slew of top quality instruments and produce something even more emotional.

Looks like it's time to get to work.

Thanks for the downloads, people. And if you haven't had the opportunity to check it out yet, follow the link coming up and check it out.

LONG WALK HOME - Kelwynshade

Music and replying to ALL comments...

2009-10-22 15:13:33 by kelwynshade

So I admit; I've fallen terribly behind in responding to everyone's comments to each of my tracks. I'm making it a personal goal to reply to each and every one of them within the next week. You guys have taken the time to let me know how much you like the music, the least I could do is respond.

Sorry for falling so far behind in replying to all of you.

Meanwhile... you guys should check out some of the newer games I've written music for. Just click on some of the latest released songs and there should be a link to each of the games.

Newgrounds Beerfest Meetup

2009-09-27 02:13:20 by kelwynshade

It was a really good meet-up, guys. My first time meeting the staff of Newgrounds. We ended up getting some rock'n photos. I'll also take you up on meeting you up in Philly, someday.

Again, rock on, and it was a good time.

Hello again, Newgrounders.

I've got a facebook account set up, so if you use facebook, add me as a friend and get cool peeks into pre-released tracks and other goodies.

Also, our Power of Three work is coming along EXTREMELY well. I'm very excited about the work done so far and seriously cannot wait to get this thing released.

20+ OST's for Games Completed!!!

2009-07-04 19:46:41 by kelwynshade

EDIT: Links all fixed. Enjoy the games!!!

Well, it has been a good two years since I started writing music for Flash Developers. So far its been a very entertaining ride. I've learned a lot thus far. I'm looking to move things to the next step, clean up some work, and send off a very hefty profile to gaming companies and record labels.

There's a ton of my work that Newgrounds or anyone else online has yet to have heard, so it's nearing that time to find a way to explode my work into something that will benefit me even more in the long run. I do love Newgrounds and honestly owe Tom and the gang thanks for creating an amazing community host.

Anyway, the purpose of this post was to say "Holy hell, I've completed over TWENTY, 20, Two-Zero soundtracks for online flash games. It pretty much hit me these past few weeks that I've been fairly busy with music commissioned work.


I wanted to post a link to each of these games that are available online for anyone interested to check out; so lets get to it:

Adventures of Balley

Berloga Strip Dance

Cannon Blaster 3

Chicken's Flying School

So check em out, and please let me know what you think. Take care, goons!

Power of 3 and MORE!

2009-05-31 12:23:09 by kelwynshade

Well, we've been hard at work with our Power of Three idea. We've got some great stuff in the works. I'm very satisfied with our team. I personally know Shawn (Afro-Ninja), and Shawn and Egoraptor have been pals for some time, so being able to use somewhat personal relationships in this project is a plus.

On another note, my Demo for the NG Audio CD has been submitted, you can find it here: THOUGHTS OF WAR (DEMO)

Also, if you're interested in being up to date with work being done, new preview tracks and so on, add me in Facebook. My facebook name is: Kelwyn Shade.
