PROJECT DESIGNS

Note: lots of graphical data under the cut!

In the light of the approaching 2nd (official) anniversary of my project it'd be nice to write about something which substitutes an important part of World Beyond but at the same time isn't directly related to its primary concern.

At some point while working on a new design for the AudioJungle profile I looked through my artworks folder observing how my visual output had been changing and ended up with the idea of making this post where I would gather some of that stuff side by side to demonstrate what was left behind over these 2 years. I  divided the images into 3 generations for convenience. So let's start with the...

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.

LONG TIME NO HEAR ON THE WAY TO THE WORLD BEYOND

- Road Notes -

Some people did notice that I almost disappeared from the web lately. It can be explained by my final examinations and then entrance examinations as I decided to take a post-graduate course after receiving my diploma in translation. The decision will allow me to keep on producing new pieces and go even deeper into the subject because from now on I'm going to study the linguistic nature of music. Hopefully, I will have enough research material to fill this blog with interesting and useful information in the nearest future.

Speaking of the site, as you may have noticed there's now a new tab under the logo.

VIDEO GAMES, ANIMATION, VICTORY DAY, NEW BLOG DESIGN


First and foremost, I would like to congratulate everyone on the Victory Day which is traditionally celebrated in Russia on the 9th of May. History is the best evidence that peace that we have now (not everywhere sadly but in most places) is the most valuable thing on Earth which is just a small pearl fragile and defenseless in face of human military aggression.

Secondly, I tried to update the look of this website. The new ideas may seem easy to implement, but for me, not an artist by trade, it took quite a while to get everything done and I'm still not sure if everything's on its place and has the correct shade of blue.

There is some news as well.

NEW GROUNDS ON THE WAY TO THE WORLD BEYOND




- Road Notes -

It has been a long while since my latest post appeared in this blog and many things both good and bad happened to me. In spite of having no time to compose music I try to steal every little bit of it from other activities including (unfortunately) my studies at the university. But I hope I'll catch up.
Have a listen to one of my newest creations while I'm making a list to pinpoint the most important things so far:

Age of Wulin: Royal Guards

I'm happy to introduce to you yet another video from Age of Wulin. Meet the Royal Guards!

It took me 3 days to come up with this military piece forged together with distorted guitars and heavy beats which I absolutely adore. Although you need to be really cautious while mixing medieval China and rock'n'roll it feels like this time I really succeeded. Enjoy!

Our part of the job was to produce sound effects and a modern pop-music style soundtrack. In a couple of days two separate tracks were sent to Mental Games company to be added into the video.
