Click the link below to follow me on Newgrounds, and I will review your music. Be sure to comment on this newz post so I'll know you're following!

Follow me unto victory

I promise to vote fairly (no zero votes from me). I can also comment on your flash or art submissions as well if you want.

Before you start to work on your new song, decide what emotion(s) you want to receive from your audience. If you make that decision first, then it will be the foundation of your entire track and will help you greatly with your writing. I've found that in order for a song to be successful, it must aspire to trigger some sort of emotional reaction from its listeners, and that's my main focus when I release a new score.

I've been enjoying your music ever since I first found the Newgrounds Audio Portal, and I continue my staunch support to this day. I have just released my first audio track, and I would be honored if you were the first to review it.

If I could ask, what do you use to make your music? I'm interested in trying to make songs of my own but I don't know where to get started. Perhaps some advice, maybe?

12/20/13 Bosa responds:

If you know how to write music, then I would recommend you get Finale or Sibelius if you do not already have it. If you do not know how to write music, then I would recommend you get FL Studio and learn how to use it.

Something you have now that I did not have when I started making music is YouTube. I am sure there are tons of informational videos about FL Studio on YouTube to get you started. When it comes to music production, be prepared to spend money in order to obtain high quality products. What type of products I would recommend would depend on your preferred genre. I have spent over $8,000 in obtaining the software that I have today.

My biggest advice to you is to be yourself when it comes to music. What makes you stand out the most is when you do not imitate the music you hear on the radio and instead you create your own original sound. Whether you create classical music or electronic music, make sure people will remember you.

woot, didn't know you are the primary school teacher. Don't get too excited :D

10/30/13 Bosa responds:

It's hard not to be!


Lol i think it would be cool to review something of mine, but you should choose other people over me because most of my stuff sucks. Lol i mean like its all pretty much experimental and i didn't really know what i was doing/ messing around. But if u wanna see some crazy shizz then every one please look at my small collection of art! XD

10/22/13 Bosa responds:

I shall review something of yours, my good man.


Seems like a good deal to me =)

9/25/13 Bosa responds:

Excellent.

I've been composing for 2 years now and I really feel that some musical advice will help me a lot.

7/23/13 Bosa responds:

I will be happy to help. If there is a specific song you would like me to review, let me know. Otherwise I will just pick one!


gratz with thousand fans

7/17/13 (Updated 7/17/13) Bosa responds:

Thank-you. Never thought I would see the day...


cool. Can you post a few words on my NGADM audition

7/17/13 (Updated 7/17/13) Bosa responds:

Yes. By the way, could you give me a link to the song? I can't seem to find it.


I clicked that link, do I get cookie?

7/5/13 Bosa responds:

You receive more than a cookie, my friend. A review is coming to you.


Hey, you're the guy that nominated Nimble for the Underdog List!

As far as composing goes, I do whatever I feel like doing. Often what I feel like doing is chiptune, but that's not all I do.

7/3/13 Bosa responds:

I will review one of your songs, sir.


Hello. You make great music. I usually just lurk around for epic orchestral pieces in the audio portal. I haven't made anything new but if you have the time could you review some of my tracks?

6/25/13 Bosa responds:

I will review your track, sir.

You've been the king of the genre That I aspire to master, and I'd really like some advice from one of the best on this site to improve whether it be production-wise or music-wise.

6/23/13 Bosa responds:

Of course, sir. Give me just a moment!

I love you're music. I image it in the background in epic video game battles.
I don't know if you're even into the type of music I make but it would be cool for you to check it out.
Nice to know you're not an asshole 0-bomber as well :)

3/27/13 Bosa responds:

Zero bombing is way below me. I've suffered through it since the day I signed up on this website. But anyways, I'll check out your music of course.

If you never 0-vote once in your life then you are not a Newgrounder! Ahem, already following you since 2008.

Excellent!

10/23/12

I don't know how I missed your follow button in the past, but consider it pressed now!

(Also, if you must review, please review my NGADM Round 1 submission, not the more recent stuff, if you don't mind, unless you really have something to say about them, for I feel they are inferior, and the song fits more in your area of expertise anyways.)

In any case, cheers!

10/23/12 Bosa responds:

Of course!
