Hello again. Apologies again. Here’s what I’ve been doing.
I am on SoundCloud now! My only track so far is a contest entry from a few months ago, but I hope to post more soon. I want to try (keyword “try”) to post something on there every week, even if it’s just a few seconds long. Here’s my link.
I have started an business on Etsy, com for my photography and crafting hobbies! Please go check it out here, OrangeStreetNorth.
I guess that’s it for now. I’m also still in the midst of juggling too many things at once. Hopefully, this blog won’t suffer as much anymore.
Tardy again, but I was really busy, and with music stuff! Finally, I am feeling like a working adult with some kind of career path in front of me. It’s harder than I thought, and I still can’t always do what I want (all you seasoned professionals are saying “duh” right about now). But I am so excited about my progress so far (in everything!) and all the possibilities that I can see in the future.
I have a total of three music for media projects done (and hopefully up on my YouTube channel soon) and my music for my Thesis semester project almost done. Only a little more polishing to do…and some re-writing…and writing my Thesis paper…in less than a month.
Most recently, I’ve had a lot of discouragement. Right after a big school deadline and right before important commitments that I had (and had to fore-go), I got sick, and the sore throat is still hanging on a little. Also, today I found out about a terrible tragedy that has overtaken one of my fellow MFA students.
Sorry about the depressing note. I’ll try to turn my depression into artistic genius in the mean time, but please pray for my fellow student and friend. And then pester me if I don’t get another post up soon about my projects.
Yes, like the title says, I’m advertising myself right now.
If you haven’t “liked” me on Facebook or “friended” me on MySpace (www.myspace.com/annachapman), please do so. You can also follow me on Twitter@ACMusic101, YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/AnnaBoomMC), and LinkedIn. I’m also on Music2Deal.com, MusicDealers.com, and AudioCatch.com, but only recently with these.
I have a piece of my short film score (the credits music) from the recent competition that I entered posted on my MySpace page, and the filmmaker has given permission for the entries to use his film with each original score for self promotion. I will have it up on YouTube soon with my score, even though I was not chosen as one of the finalists. (But one of my fellow classmates is a finalist in the competition!)
On another note (haha-I haven’t yet gotten tired of using that pun), one of the non-musical things that I do is photography, where I consider myself an amateur: http://www.annachapmanphotos.printroom.com/
That’s it for now. Happy browsing. 🙂
