I guess I missed the peak of this whole unsourced music deal.

Regardless, I’d like to come out here and say that Clark Powell and a good deal of other members of the Homestuck music team are good friends of mine, and are all young musicians trying very hard to make their way in a world that is not friendly to musicians. I know firsthand that it is surprisingly difficult to convince a large group of people to take time out of their day to press that little “play” button and give your music a chance. Harder, still, is it to amass over 45,000 Tumblr notes on a piece of original music, which is a fact that is frustrating to many.

Unfortunately, the majority of the Homestuck music team exists in a strange sort of ether, where an overwhelming amount of the fanbase is not even aware of their internet presences. Saddeningly often do I see posts by fans of official Homestuck music with tens of thousands of notes, sourced only to the comic’s Bandcamp page. Meanwhile, team members like my incredibly talented best friend Jeremy “Solatrus” Iamurri (of “Frost" and "Derse Dreamers" fame) struggle to gain more than a few notes on any given Tumblr post at any given time of the day.

Here’s a list of links to all of the Homestuck music team members on Tumblr. Please check out their incredible work, and perhaps consider buying their music, or commissioning them!

THANK YOU.

you’re welcome

This is you if you still use FL 8.

This is you if you still use FL 8.

Listening to Zedd’s “Stache” and Zircon’s “Colossus” consecutively is a pretty cool experience and links two musicians’ styles I’d previously thought to be very different from one another.

I'm funny
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): I'm just glad i keep FL Studio on auto-save because Windows 8 crashes with ASIO or VAC regularly
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): Probably VAC
Yishan: what's VAC
Mark Nabors: valve anti-cheat
FGADHGHA: i like it
Mark Nabors: it works as an audio driver
shrug
Yishan: wait what
Yishan: it does
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): Hahahahahaha
[Cory] TENOUTTATEN: pfffffff
Yishan: what
Yishan: idgi
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): Thank you, Mark
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): Thank you
Yishan: ?
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): VAC = Virtual Audio Cables
Mark Nabors: Jeremy's talking about Virtual Audio Cable
Mark Nabors: yeah
[Cory] TENOUTTATEN: "That was a joke."
[Cory] TENOUTTATEN: "Thanks, EDI."
Yishan: mark you card
Yishan: >=I
Mark Nabors: ha ha, fat chance, etc.
David Ellis: So he's not just using an aimbot in FL studio.
Jeremy Iamurri (Solatrus): ^
Mark Nabors: he's keeping the aimbots /out/ of fl studio
Mark Nabors: with the power of virtual audio cables
