Sometimes, Bible verses or quotes from other classical Jewish texts are sung repetitively to form a nigun" Short niggunim are used for meditation. to quote one source (http://www.chabad.org/library/article_c ... Niggun.htm)
There are some niggunim that are structured and progressive. These tunes are to the Western ear 'sophisticated' tunes, consisting of a beginning, a body and a climax. There are other niggunim that are containments of a repetition of single, individual sounds with little or no words. And some contain the two.
Oh, very cool! A kind of Jewish mantra! Was the niggun you composed intended for *here* or is it from within your world?
And I've added a bit:

I drew a steel golem. They are often twice as large as humans and can shoot beams out of their eyes.

Music stuff, huh...?

I decided to get out my incredibly old Dell and pull some of my old stuff of it. In high school, nearly half a decade ago, I decided to get my Fine Arts credit by taking Music Theory. I actually found the class a lot of fun, even though I had little musical backing and the others in it (who were all musicians themselves) blew me out of the water. Unfortunately, I stopped doing anything music-wise after that year ended. I still, however, have a few of my old compositions! Most of them are...not very good to be honest, and they're all either short and unfinished, but they still are very nostalgic to me. Here's a few of them that I've uploaded to Musescore, so you can listen to them. Some of them sound a little weird on the site, though.

Silent Days: Incredibly short 7-second composition, cannot remember if this was made for a class assignment or not. A melancholy tune.

Nyx' Castle: a song that I started on a whim one day aiming to sound like classical video game music through aggressive use of arpeggios. Eventually I just kept adding on and on to it, resulting in a very disorienting and jumbled work. Looking back on it, the song is definitely way too chaotic and doesn't feature any real kind of hook or riff, it's just mindless piano wankery for nearly two minutes.

March to Victory: A song that sounds something like an old-school RPG battle theme (hence the cheesy name). I remember penning the intro of this song one day and being surprised at how JRPG-y it sounded: I then expanded on it later, but it loses some steam and doesn't really go anywhere...the part at measure 13 sounds dope though. Also, I swear the site is playing it faster than it actually goes in Musescore. The end in particular is WAY too fast here. Also the song is unfinished.

[Project]: An assignment for my Music Theory class; it is untitled, which is why its name is in brackets. A simple piano piece. Has a bittersweet feeling in my eyes.

Porchside Melody: Another song I have zero recollection of making. Guitar tune that's only 14 seconds long. Beginning gives me a Zelda vibe for some reason.

Unfortunately, I have forgot most of the class, so I can't really start composing once more...

I can't even remember what chords I used! Feel free.

Dammit. Looking at those compositions is making me want to compose again but I have forgotten literally everything >_>

A product of a combination of sleeplessness and slight boredom.

Thanks. Yeah, I figured that would help make it look a bit more real... after all, the visa here is unlikely to be made of the same material as the page.

I've never shared my painting here, have I? I've started painting miniatures. I've been doing it for almost a year now. Sadly I'm not very good at it, their a bit sloppy and the paint kind of cracks.

(They are huge and no way to scale here (no timg tag), so you'll have to see them in the album)

The rest of them are in an album here

I also did some building for a foam sword. It's not quite finished yet, but this is what I have so far:

You're gonna have to use the direct link to post the image in IMG tags. As it is, there's no file extension so the image won't show.
