Asandir's interviews with Newgrounds forum users

This week's interview features the user Deshiel.

When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the Deshiel?

Deshiel:

"I think that it was in late half of 2007 when I was searching for DOOM 3 mod soundtrack, that was created by one of the early users and my search has brought me to Newgrounds. I came here with the intention to grab the soundtrack and leave, but then I discovered the true nature of this site that showed me what Newgrounds can provide and I decided to stay."

Why did you join?

Deshiel:

"I've finaly registered to the site when I aquired Dance E-jay music software that enabled me to make my first music from pre-recorded samples. It was nowhere as cool as working with Fruity Loops, but I was really into it back then. Suddently I wanted to make music like the other guys on the site, but my primary mission was to create action packed music for my gaming sessions. So in the beginning I didn't care about other people on Newgrounds and I didn't even socialise with anyone at the time and Newgrounds was nothing more than a place to browse for awesome music and to store my own."

Why did you choose the username Deshiel?

Deshiel:

"This name was created long before my arrival on Newgrounds and it served as my secondary Gaming nickname. It has evolved from my secondary name into my primary one and now I'm using it nearly everywhere I go.
The conception happened when I wanted to chose a more "mature" nickname, because I was often mocked by the gaming community for having an asian nickname Akimaru. So because I wanted to be absolutely original when it came to my own nickname. So, one night when I was watching the TV show The shield, I really liked how it sounded when I pronounced it "THE SHIELD!" so I grabed my pen and wrote the word on a piece of paper. There I tried to come up with some nickname that would sound similar but be absolutely different, thus original. It only took me few minutes to write down the nickname we all know and love, DESHIEL. Because the way english or american people pronounce the word THE is exactly how we pronounce the letter D, I transformed THE into D shiel and then addet the e between D and S to make a connection."

Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?

Deshiel:

"Yes, I believe that I am a whole different person now than I was before, but mainly because I was far younger and less commited to anything I do. I started here as an absolute loner who didn't need anything or anyone, but as I progressed in the field of music I started to feel the need to reach out and talk with the other users about our common interests.

I've gathered a great ton of friends here who have left alittle piece of themselves and thier ideals in me and I believe that I've done the same thing to them."

Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?

Deshiel:

"I've met way too many artists over the years so I do not remember everyone, but nearly every one of them has left thier mark on me with either thier music or thier personality. Because I am a huge metal fan, I always admired the work of Bad-Man-Incorporated, Lasmush, Xenogenocide, Evil-Dog and many more which I'm really strugling to remember.

But that was just metal and rock. Next two guys who I consider to be my personal legends were Genjo and Chromatronic. Their interpretation of electronic music was so special to me that I downloaded nearly everything they had and they inspired me to do something similar to thier kin. Neither one of them seemed to be very popular in the Audio Portal, but they were awesome for me.

Pretty much everytime I felt that something cannot be done, someone would pop up and show me otherwise. Two greatest examples of this were Wandschrank and Bacon92, both of them were my mentors and I still look up to them with great respect. One last mention should go to PeterSatera, who I felt was right where I wanted to be in the future.
He was able to combine electronic music with classical instruments to create some action packed cinematic music and he became my Idol and source of inspiration ever since I met him."

Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?

Deshiel:

"Yes there are several users that I do not like, but I do not want to name them, because I would have to deal with them again later and I want to stay way from them forever. But yes, this is an Audio Portal housing thousands of different personalities and thus there is always the chance that we will met someone who will make our blood boil. It happened and will probably happen again in the future, We cannot be friends with everyone, but we should value the friendships that we have."

What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer? And is there another forum user that you want to see getting interviewed by me?

Deshiel:

"I absolutely love the freedom of content in this forum. If you follow the rules, you can pretty much discuss anything you want. Lately I've discovered that the general forum is a great source of fun when you are too lazy to do anything else."

I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?

Deshiel:

"I do not have any opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds because I am not in any way associated with any of them. The current moderators are people that I find no interest in so they are complete strangers to me. I guess that they do what they wanted to do, because every single one of them probably asked for it."

Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?

Deshiel:

"If I were a moderator, I would be an audio moderator of course, but that should never happen because I would be relentless and uncompromising Jedi killer and I would be eventualy depowered by the higher mods for my lack of compassion and sympathy."

The last redesign happened 2012. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?

Deshiel:

"The current design completely killed off my efforts to browse for random and awesome music on my own. Nowadays I'm only listening to the stuff the people that I follow make, but that was the master plan of this design anyway.
I really do like the rest of the features that enabled me to connect even more with the rest of the community however, but that loss of acces to awesome content was really devastating for me, because browsing for music in the old design was easy as eating a cake and very rewarding. Now you you can only browse for something that is popular based on views or score and that is really sad, because most of the awesome stuff I liked in the old design was somewhere inbetween."

With well over 400 submissions, you are not only one of the most popular but also most active audio artists on Newgrounds. When did you start making music? Which of your early tracks do you like the most?

Deshiel:

"I started making music when I was 12 but those early attempts were really bad because I didn't know what I was doing and I didn't really have the drive for improvement back then. I was too lazy to go and study so most of my early Fruity Loops sessions were just me hitting few notes and then shutting down the software, because I did want to make music, but I didn't want to learn. My favorite track from my early production would be {techno#battle}.

When I was making this track, my knowledge of Fuity Loops was so poor that I didn't even know how to use piano roll or the basic Playlist editor. All I used was the Sequencer so the whole track was manualy recorded and copied to other sytrus presets to add diversion. The whole melody of that track was recorded in one session, so there are certain moments when the melody is suddently going downhill because I didn't know what to do, but a grave mistake would mean that I would have to record everything over again."

Overall, what do you like and dislike about the Newgrounds Audio Portal in comparison to other platforms like Soundcloud? Which changes would you like seeing implented in the future?

Deshiel:

"As I understand it, Soundcloud is a place for unsigned producers to wave for attention, while Newgrounds Audio Portal is a place for flash games/video designers to browse for music. Seriously, the original aspiration of the Audio Portal was nowhere near the goal that Soundcloud has established for the user. It was the never satiated greed of the attention seeking people that Newgrounds Audio Portal was transformed more into a place to show off rather than provide.

I like the both sites respectively and I do not want them to mix up too much, because then I would lose the need of one of them. I do however want some system that would count the total of views and download of every sing entry that I made."

One thing that makes you stand out as audio artist is that you compose songs for a large variety of genres. Which genres do you find most enjoyable to produce?

Deshiel:

"I am still very passionate when it comes to Rock & Metal, but I do not own the necessary gear to make music like Bad-Man-Incorporated and etc. Also I am very eager to combine electronic music with heavy guitars.
I've also began to invest in more cinematic aproach to my music, because I would like to score some stuff in the future.

Basically I want to be the guy that can make everything, but I cannot say that I do much to achieve my goals, because I am a very lazy composer. :) I like dark and disturbing music and some of my pieces are influenced by that more than I want to. I had a lot of fun while creating duel of two robots and zetsubou no owari, so I guess that I realy enjoy creating action packed/emd tinted cinematic music. :D"

You sometimes play Star Wars: The Old Republic. Which aspects of this game do you enjoy the most? When did you become a fan of the Star Wars franchise? Are you looking forward to the upcoming Star Wars movie?

Deshiel:

Star Wars: The Old Republic is the only MMO that managed to captivate me for years. I cannot say that I am a diehard fan, but I do love the universe of Star Wars. I did not read any of the books but I played lots of games from the Star Wars universe. So Because I am also a huge fan of Bioware, which is responsible for KOTOR 1 and Mass Effect. I was like mega excited to play SWTOR, because to me it has delivered what it had promised. It puts your chosen character into numerous situations which you have to deal with by using choices that you want. By now I reached level 55 with nearly every class aside from the smuggler and jedi knight, but I still absolutely love to watch MY Star Wars characters in the cutscenes.

Yes I do look foward to see the new Star Wars movie, but I am little bit scared that it will end up being something entirely different from the past six. The aquisition of Lucasarts by disney plays a great deal in my fear."

Seems like you are a fan of Game of Thrones. Tell my readers what you like about the show in general. Which characters do you like the most and why?

Deshiel:

"What I absolutely love about the show is the realism of violence and human nature. Humans are mean and we all have to learn about that sooner or later. I find the story and the endless amount of plots very compeling and I can't wait to see more. I also liked the sex in the series, well aside from the incest adventures of Cersei & Jaime, that was a shocker for my whole family, because we are all fans of game of thrones and sometimes we watch the series together. Also, swordfights, awesome swordfights!

I really like Jon Snow and Arya Stark, because they are both badass, but I'm also starting to grow fond of Jaime and Tyrion. Oberyn Was a great dude but he didnt last long."

Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?

Deshiel:

"When I was like 12 years old I used to steal my fathers condoms and I would either try to put them on or see how much water they can hold. :)"

What can we expect from you in the future, Deshiel?


"Improvement and perhaps a contest or two, because I am not going to leave Newgrounds anytime soon. :)"
