bio

names flurry, zephyr / zeph, niko
preferred prns. he / they ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ

i'm an furry producer making experimental music, mainly focused on melodic synths and polyphony, to express myself and for the fun of it.

i usually tag my works as oneshotwave - synthwave influenced aesthetically from the game oneshot

genres include
internet funeral
computergaze
oneirowave
dreamwave
anything else that has synthwave roots
y2k
deathdream
plunderphonics

equipment
[ music ]
jummbox, audacity
[ artwork ]
ibis paint x, ms paint

songs made in jummbox will usually have the project link at the top of the
description. if there isnt i either forgot to save it, added stuff in a
different program, or made the entire song in a different
program.

platforms
soundcloud is what i would consider my "main" platform since its where i upload all of my stuff.

bandcamp is my secondary platform. while i do prioritize it often, i only use it for full album/EP releases and compilations, since bandcamp notifies you through emails and i don't wanna flood yall. however singles do eventually end up in albums so you won't be missing out for that long.
if you wanna support my stuff in the best way possible, buy my stuff on bandcamp!!

youtube is my tertiary platform since i post some of my music but also the other stuff i do there (memes/art/etc)

i use newgrounds but it's my least prioritized. speaking of newgrounds, poly6c is my old name. i have to pay to change my name there.

the main aesthetics i try to go for with my music.

internet funeral
this aesthetic defies description.
just scroll through this subreddit and you'll understand what it is.

qualia calx
a visual and audio aesthetic themed around low quality images, low bitrate audio, intentional audio clipping/imperfections, and scuffed screengrabs from old versions of gaming sites such as roblox and coolmath.

after hours
an aesthetic inspired by the feelings and impressions of seeing a usually populated setting, empty.

spiritcore / mystcore
an aesthetic describing the supernatural magical feeling of nighttime.

glowwave an aesthetic surrounding the theme of things that glow in the dark or with assistance from a uv light

spacecore / astrocore
a type of aesthetic that is centered around astronomy, stars and planets

logos without credit were designed by me.

album vs. EP
(in my opinion, excluding bonus tracks)

in my opinion, an EP has 3-5 tracks, 8 maximum.
anything after that is an album.

an EP with 8 tracks could also be considered an album if most of the tracks themself are relatively long (about 4/5+ min).

but this opens up a bigger rabbithole since there's these things called LPs, which are basically just full-length albums. all that distinguishes an LP from any other album is its vinyl medium.
but if an artist isn't interested in physical releases, can they still label their album as an LP like they can an EP?
i'd assume one can, since thaehan's youtube upload of his bwa! album is listed as an LP by him, though there are no physicals.

does it even matter if there is a difference between album/LP/EP? is there even a difference?
these terms seem to only exist to complicate things...

i think debut albums/ep's from just about any artist can easily fall into this "first album syndrome", where many times, i find fans of artists i look up to, frequently talking about or returning to said artist(s) first release despite what quality said release is and what quality may have came out in the future.

finding your aesthetic is an important step in music production.
once you find "yourself", the audience can find you.

my gallery of edits, alternate icons, and wallpapers matching
my aesthetic.

while most of these art pieces are edits of pre-existing material,
they still resonate within me.
these pieces are based on emotions, dreams, and nearly
forgotten thoughts.

quick links to all my album/EP release list on this alias in chrono order.

note that , before i release a full album , i typically release an
EP of outtakes from said album before releasing the full thing. because of this,
the outtake EPs will be decimals
(i.e. moral compass is 2nd release, the outtakes EP kuiper is 1.5th release)
