Where have I gone?

Quick post to answer a question I got - why so infrequent with the music posting?

The answer is that I'm still making originals (which get posted here) and doing tons of piano covers, but the covers aren't allowed to be posted to Newgrounds for legal reasons. If you want to check out all my material, then head over to my Youtube page where I post new music 2-3 times a week:

Party on.



I don't think I've ever been as pumped for something as I have for this - I've had the great pleasure of once again working with Knuckle Cracker as a composer (I scored Creeper World III: Arc Eternal) for the new spiritual successor to CW3, Particle Fleet: Emergence!

Play it and enjoy! And tell me if you like the soundtrack - or hate it - and why! I'm always eager to learn.


My new album is out!

2016-09-25 11:10:40 by FinnMK

And here it is - my new album! Album Fünf arrives! You can purchase it and stream it on Bandcamp:
https://finnmk.bandcamp.com/album/album-f-nf

Or download it for free and stream it on Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/finnmk/sets/album-fuenf-1

All the tracks are also available here on Newgrounds, but as I'm unable to make a playlist, you'll just have to go searching through my tracks this year if you want to listen locally.

Album Fünf has shown a real development in my abilities compared to past albums. Since finishing the Album Four EP, I've been making a real effort to step up my production game. I did an online course in audio mastering as well as some research on my own, and I'm very happy with the results I'm now able to get. These tracks aren't top of the pops production-level, but I'm on my way there!

In terms of content, I've gotten more raw and emotional. I rarely used to write about my feelings, my thoughts, my dreams, my desires, but on this album things have gotten very personal. Tracks like Airborne, Road To Happiness, Mad, Mad, Mad and What A Beautiful Life | Happiness is Here | Worth all have meaning to me on a lyrical level as well as musical. Writing personal lyrics is exposing and embarrassing, but I think it's resulted in some really great music. There's not a single track on here I don't really enjoy.

As always, I hope you find some enjoyment and meaning in these pieces of music.


Album Fünf is Out Tomorrow!

New Song Cover Art

My latest original (and perhaps the last original for a little while) is getting released this weekend, but I couldn't wait to share the artwork for it. I can barely wait to release the whole thing!...

Also stay tuned, because next weekend I'm releasing a massive, 3-part, 8-minute song. It's intense.
