The Blood Zone

Feb 28, 2020

hello fellow dark voyagers of the great beyond,

this is a very special musical episode about my (sometimes sordid) history and musical background with the online videogame music arrangement community OC ReMix, the music and artistry of several things i enjoyed on that website, and the many dramas of that era that still haunt me in ways that i can't put into words today.

you are in for a journey, and a real treat. so be patient and sit back and relax.
