I jumped into the deep and dark water, full of oily sharks. I won’t argue that.
And even I, being a sentient being, thought that it can be a mistake. It always can be. Tens of thousands of companies fail per year in Germany alone. And I made a lot of mistakes.
But, as I have just received a new cool job for a full game, in written form, I have moved the point of beggardom a few months into the future. This will be major game audio job #3 in the span of 1 year.
I am working full time, on music and sound, for games and media, for almost 2 months now – and it seems I will not stop so soon. I am save moneywise at least until somewhere in 2011. Given that I don’t get anything new in until then. And even I can’t be that gloomy. I received three jobs, for very small things, in the last 3 days. And I will be at a shitload of events, meeting with people…
I guess this is the beginning of wonderful things, and a wonderful lifestyle, almost rockstar like. I have to let this sink in: I am only doing music and sound design. No day job. No sleeping on subway trains anymore, no wishing and dreaming away from empty office work or so. Thanks music, thank you games!
And I have my fellow band Worship and the new album, I am so looking forward to start recording. Will be out in 2010!
