From Writing To Music III

Still struggling to find my own style, although I am overall pleased with the outcomes, still, my stuff is much amateurish, but anyway, here my third piece of tribute I made recently. Read the video description for more details about it.
Hail the thorns.


From writing to music II

Writing is the most meaningful piece of art that is happened to entangle me in its web of wonder, but there are also other forms of art that I pick interest in.
Some months ago I composed a little piece of music, made for my poem “Timeless Darkin” and a bit later I created a second one called “Miss The Darkness”, which I also made for a poem of mine that bears the same name.
Since I only posted the first one here I felt like sharing my second one, too, because I really like how it went out.


From writing to music

Art comes in many different forms. From time to time I enjoy shifting from one form to another and see what would come up. For quite the time I am working on a music project to create a song whose lyrics would be one of my poems, since I own a piano (music keyboard) and I though it would be a nice idea. The chosen one is “Timeless Darkin”, written by me a year ago.

Here is a demo I composed:

Hopefully, the full version will come out as soon as possible, as I am working with a dear friend of mine to add guitars and vocals and final mix.

My symbol, with regards + Wallpaper

Symbols. Tons of them throughout the world and mostly with more than one meaning. Sometimes, understood, sometimes not, sometimes partly. In any case, as much as I love words and treat them as something sacred, I have a soft spot for symbols. Having a few tattooed on my body is a living proof for that. So I had the nerve to create a symbol of my own which shines in the center of my blog banner. This represents an emblem of my whole world that I am building. The idea was all mine, but the actual creation was done by a friend of mine who goes by the nickname Darius St. Clair. He even made a wallpaper for me which am so grateful for and I want to thank him for his mad photoshop skills and the time spent helping me. I cannot explain the meaning of my emblem because the night is dark and full of spoilers, but whoever is interested in some white shiny circles here is a download link for the wallpaper my friend made for me (resolution 1920×1080):  CLICK HERE

The day will come when all meaning shall be unveiled, but til then, and after that, may the symbols never be neglected and let’s all treat them with respect.

Having trouble being original? Here’s why you shouldn’t.

So, you are a noble person who doesn’t like stealing other people’s ideas and want to create ideas of your own which will one day bloom into beautiful creations? Then you’re just like me. But then, you stumbled across a serious problem. How to exactly do it?


[Tips] How to start writing?

A simple question which has a simple answer. Just do it. Once, I watched a certain interview with a certain writer who spoke quite the words of wisdom on how writing is done. So basically, writing can roughly be divided into two types; the engineer type and the gardener type.


[Introduction] Hello. Who am I? What is this blog about? What is “Kin of Hearts”?

Who am I?

Hello. I never did any introduction. People who stumbled upon this blog just saw a bunch of poetry posted on it, and that’s all. I am just a man in his twenties who loves to write, expressing his point of view in different and unique way than the one you could call “usual” and I shall continue to do so until the last piece of breath of mine is taken.
