So, to summarise stuff so far: I've done some music for Tumbleweed Express on Steam, check it out! http://store.steampowered.com/app/372350/
My weird dumb album, 'Shadow of the Lich' exists: https://mairujyat.bandcamp.com/album/shadow-of-the-lich
Also I'm pretty much open to taking on commissions, so if anyone's interested just hit me up and we can discuss details!
My album is OUT, finally! Literally excited as hell and I don't know -what- to do with myself now! In the meantime, buy a copy, buy several copies, don't buy it at all and just admire it! Here's a link!
Hey, so just an update! You know that album I've been working on for like a year? No? Well I don't blame you! There's literally nothing about it on the internet, except for this one lonely sort of Facebook page I kinda made like a week ago, you know basically nothing.
For the last year I've been putting together an album, 38 tracks to be exact, of music heavily inspired by RPG music from the 90s, the old SNES and PS1 generation of RPG video games. Totally a pain in the butt to make, it's nearly done! All it needs now is some touching up and I'll be putting it up for release on Bandcamp!
Also, putting up a few tracks every so often in the weeks before release, to tease it and show people what it is exactly, as well as some artwork from the development of the album's cover and story (yes, it's a concept album, not just a random collection of "LOL SO RETRO" tunes).
Speaking of, just posted some of the above mentioned stuff today. Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Shadow-of-the-Lich/774770739303054
Anyway, that's all for now, till next time!
It's basically nothing, just ignore it maybe. Just playing around with one of the tracks for the album and my new Roland Sound Canvas module... https://soundcloud.com/mairujyat/triumph-will-come-roland-studio-canvas-ver
Alright, totally back and got 5 more tracks left, just enough to make April a pain in the ass.
Hopefully have something interesting to show off on Soundcloud at the end of the month!
So, going to keep this quick: 4 more songs done, another 6 left to go and I move onto the final stages of my upcoming concept album whatsit, "Shadow of the Lich". Also gotten tangled up in a few related side-projects as well, so keep an eye out for them on my Bandcamp page, hopefully have something up early next month!
I'm going to visit family in Mexico, hopefully help clear my head and let me push through these last few tracks, so looking forward to that. And for anyone who didn't notice the last journal: new song, did composition for it, on a friend's bandcamp, check it out: https://bluetronic.bandcamp.com/track/elegy-for-a-dullahan-sound-designers-cut
So cool news: A friend and I just released this song on Bandcamp, pretty big deal I guess maybe not I dunno. Anyway, check it out!
So just an update, I actually hurt my wrist pretty badly at MAGFest, thought it'd be healed up by now, but turns out it's not just "oh hey, slipped and fell, caught all your weight with your outstretched hand behind you? All good, you're fine!"
No, it's more like "You really screwed yourself up, congrats."
So anything new's going to be slow to show up, but no worries, getting myself started on a few side projects, and also might have at least four more tracks for this album done by the end of the month!
Until next time!
Well that went well, got to meet a bunch of people and check out a bunch of games! Also, hopefully some 91 lucky people ended up with a lump of plastic containing magnetic tape! that is to say, audio cassettes. Because why not.
Anyway, if anyone wants to head over to my Soundcloud page, I'm uploading some scraps that didn't make it through the production of the as-of-yet unreleased album! Call it a preview, call it me being cheap, either way, it's all over here: https://soundcloud.com/mairujyat/sets/shadow-of-the-lich-scraps
I'll be trying to update at least once every couple of weeks here, and let everyone know where I'm at with this monster I'm creating!
'Til next time!
So I've gotten basically nowhere near as much progress as I wanted to on this album dealie, but I'm still working on it.
Basically, you remember RPGs in the 90's? Specifically how much their atmosphere was built up and made memorable by the sheer variety in the music?
I'm making an album with some 40-or-so tracks, each of them specific to various instances and situations in an imaginary game, entitled "Shadow of the Lich". Divided up into three acts, each with their own unique motifs as well as sharing some recurring themes, it's going to be a pretty massive thing.
Having started and completed most of it between May and October of 2014, I ran into a whole ton of issues as the year drew to a close, and at this point I'm nearly burning myself out trying to get the last 10 or so tracks finished.
Anyway, keep an eye out here or on Twitter for updates, hopefully I'll have something to share next time around!
Oh almost forgot: Going to MAGfest, keep an eye out for some cassette tapes for some exclusive previews of the album!
