AUGUST UPDATE: Beyond YouTube Releases, Videogames, Voice Acting, Summer Heat and Hardware Choices

The summer is coming to an end and it means there isn't much time left to accomplish everything we have planned to do. However, the two videos mentioned earlier have been uploaded to YouTube. Making them took a lot of time (and publishing took even more) because this time it wasn't just music production: many takes of voice recording for the Russian and English versions of the Becoming a Titan trailer went into that, I recorded quena for the first time and double tracked it with ocarina.

Nick helped a lot with the English text for the trailer somewhere in between diligently working on his orders. And when he was through, he came up with this awesome electronic piece that seems to have taken in all the warmth of this summer and many positive feelings you can read about in description.

JULY UPDATE

So, what have we been up to this summer?

Nick has recorded some guitar parts for Skyreef City Theme which are very well done considering it wasn't the easiest job. Kudos to Sir Nicholas Standing and I'm now working on mixing down my and his material for the game. The idea for the city theme is to make 3 separate pieces that have the same structure but different arrangement so that when travelling along the Kingdom you can hear the tune changing, depending on the certain area of the city.

Also, the war theme has finally been composed for Skyreef. It's not ready to be inserted in the game, though, as it's lacking percussion and is yet to be divided into contextual parts. But that's a good start and, besides, Lars should be working on a secret video involving that very composition which, I believe, will turn out to be quite enjoyable ;)

The Oroliga project is yet another work front with several looped music pieces currently in production. Minimalistic and dark, the soundtrack is inspired by Kai Rosenkranz's Gothic 1-2 music. I myself can't wait to hear the compositions in the game. Hoping to see a playable build as soon as possible. Just like the game, the full Oroliga soundtrack will be a free download.

There is a new Celistic: Brascot-6 video in plans. The team is working hard on the game and mainly the NPC models and I think we have a few ideas on how to showcase the development process in a creative way.

At last, there are several fan-made compositions for RPGArea.ru being prepared to be published on the WB YouTube channel and SoundCloud. Two of them are already finished and connected with computers and titans. If all goes well, the third will be completed by the end of the summer.

That's about it for now. Follow the news on our Facebook and Twitter pages and until next post!

ALBUM IS OUT

I dedicate this album to my parents, who sent me to music school when I was a kid. I think they wanted me to be a singer or that I played the piano, but I ended up fiddling with a DAW in front of the computer. These people never criticize my music tastes whatever it is that I listen to, they are always very supportive and patient. I think they never forced me to study something I didn't want to with the exception of music, apparently (LOL). All the best personal qualities that I have are thanks to my mom and dad (and all the worst are my own achievements). I hope that one day I will make them proud of what I will have accomplished.

Also, since she's a big fan of the "How to Train Your Dragon" franchise, I dedicate the song "Brand New Day" to Sveta. The history and development of World Beyond as a soundtrack project began thanks to her and the music I come up with is as dear to me as she is.

Finally, big thanks to sir Nicholas Standing for participation, for his incredible skill, all the help and many pieces of advice.

LEGENDS LIVE ON


I posted earlier on Twitter that the composition Winter Legend wasn't in fact just a standalone single. I thought it was time for this project to go further and start publishing music that not only producers would find interesting, but everyone could enjoy and afford, in the shape of theme-based albums. I'm happy to announce that today the work on the Winter Legend album has been finished. As I'm writing these lines, I'm listening to the tracklist of 8 pieces, some of which were previously available only under royalty-free licenses. It also contains a piece you can download for free from the World Beyond SoundCloud page - Everything We Stand For. With this album you get the unspoiled .flac version and support the amazing British musician Nicholas Standing who recorded guitar specifically for this track. The playlist for Winter Legend is as follows:

1. World Beyond - Introduction
2. World Beyond - Winter Legend
3. World Beyond - Land of No Justice
4. World Beyond - Future Obscure
5. World Beyond - Showdown
6. World Beyond - Interlude
7. World Beyond - Brand New Day
8. World Beyond feat. Nicholas Standing - Everything We Stand For

That doesn't mean, however, that we're no longer producers-oriented. On the contrary, the Audiojungle profile will give you these tracks plus looped versions, vocals-free versions, logos and excerpts that may come in handy in production. Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook, Audiojungle or Twitter and you will not be disappointed.
Also, expect a promo-video for Brand New Day on our YouTube channel very soon.

SEPTEMBER UPDATE


Welcome back everyone! 
This has been truly a month of releases for WB as I managed to upload to AudioJungle two brand new cinematic pieces Decision Made and Running Out of Nights where I tried to lean towards the electronic kind of soundtrack music. The item Sirius Sector which had received good criticism on release but wasn't really popular among customers also got an update.  With this revamped version I minimized the amount of muddy distorted synths replacing them by spiccato cellos, added brass section, action drums and finally by doing general mixing tweaks I turned it into something you can check out here.
