I didn’t disappear again! Here’s a 3 min excerpt of ‘Heir of Grief’, the Heir Conditioning remix I’ve been working on. Obviously I’ve left out the bridge and the soloing section for now,because I wouldn’t wanna give away everything at once ;).

This was the day I finally listened to “Gangnam Style”

Clark Powell Is Accepting Commissions
Hello, my name is Clark! I’m a veteran of the Homestuck music team, and I generally spend my days composing and producing; I support myself entirely by making and selling music. Bombshell incoming.
You may now commission me!
Perhaps you have heard my music for Homestuck, such as:
Symphony Impossible to Play
Three in the Morning
Even in Death
Just such masterpieces could easily be yours. As of right now, all you must do is read my commission guidelines and get in touch!
Gosh, I love Plaz
My remix of the song “Requited” by #Plazmataz. I used this as a way to practice mastering, and to experiment with recording my acoustic guitar. Thoughts and criticism welcome.
You really understand what makes Serenade tick, what a great cover! I love the tight, minimal percussion especially, really well done.
Meet the Music Team: Episode Clark
Hi! My name is Clark, but maybe you know me as Plazmataz. For reference, I look like this:
I would like to introduce myself to the Homestuck fandom at large! I am responsible for quite a lot of Homestuck music, including the scores from some major flashes:
- Roxy: Sleepwalk
- The Flare section of Cascade
- [S] Act 6
- The classic Sn0wman introduction
- John’s Gate 1 walkabout
Beyond that I have had a hand in lots of different Homestuck music projects! I produced the solo album Medium, which was released about a year ago now, and along with RJ Lake I was co-producer of the Felt album. In addition these I’ve had dozens of songs elsewhere in the Homestuck canon, such as on the Volume albums! For Volume 9 I especially produced a lot of material, with tracks like Austin, Atlantis; Requited; and Crystalmethequins.
But let me tell you about who I am and what sort of stuff I get up to.
I am a producer of music, and a player of the cello and the bass guitar. I currently live in Austin, Texas where I play in a band with Homestuck colleague Bowman. I pretty much sit in my house and write music all day! Currently I am supporting myself entirely by what income I can earn making and selling music.
I love a good video game or a good television series, and at any given time of the day I am liable to have a mug of tea within arm’s reach. I also love to take pictures of all the places I go and things I see, but I have never put any of those pictures online. Now that I think about it, perhaps I should.
I have lived a great many places over the course of my life, and I fancy myself a great lover of adventure! My most colorful escapade took place in China, where I lived and worked as an English professor at a college. Before that I lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is still a city dear to my heart.
Generally we of the Homestuck music team do our work pretty humbly and quietly as the wizards behind the curtain, working out our musical alchemy in whispers to be heard in Andrew’s flashes and on the Homestuck album releases. We don’t make too many public internet appearances, but a lot of us have started blogs on Tumblr over the last year! It’s becoming clear that there isn’t much reason to be so secretive about who we are or what we do.
I think what I am trying to say is…
(and a special thanks to deliciousbroabs for the art, and for being one of the only people to have ever drawn me!)
She Needs to Come Home
This morning I was feeling pretty inspired. I made this song in just a few hours, putting the structure together and then immediately recording the live cello parts. Enjoy!
This one goes out to Worthikids, whose art has been serious fuel for my creativity lately. Also he’s got a dudecrush on Roxy.
Homestuck Volume 9 Listening Party - 7 p.m. Central!
Hey there everyone! In honor of Homestuck Volume 9’s release I’ll be hosting a listening party in my stream at 7 p.m. central time!
A bunch of the Homestuck music team will be there including Jit, RJ, Squid, Bowman, Nick Smalley, and whoever the heck else feels like showing!
If you’ve done any art for Volume 9 I encourage you to join in on the fun and tell us about your tracks!
Look forward to seeing you all there!
