"Home" by Jabun Front Paged on Newgrounds! New Mastering Demo Reel, Mastering News and a New Page, Better Than The Book EP News, and the Final Days of The Dinosaur Kickstarter!
Another busy week! Much to tell so let's get to it! :D
Firstly, some awesome news: My track "Home" was featured on the front page of Newgrounds, a great honour! A fair few projects I've been involved with have been front paged previously, but this is the first time one of my solo works has been chosen so it really brings a warm feeling to my heart. Thanks so much to Newgrounds for their support. You guys are awesome! If you haven't yet heard "Home", feel free to listen to it below and share it with your friends :3
Next on the news front, on the request of a prospective Newgrounds client, I've produced a level matched edit of my previous 3 demo reels, so people can hear the adjustments I'm making (not including loudness) more clearly. As with the others demo reels, this can be downloaded for free for your own reference. You can listen to the edited demo reel below:
On the subject of mastering, this week I mastered a lovely 2 track micro-album for Norwegian musician, Mihai Sorohan, who you can check out on Facebook. The genre was jazz fusion which really took me back to my days playing piano in a jazz funk band in my mid-teens. The albums set to be released on Bandcamp soon, and I'll be posting a streaming link up here when it does. Expect that in the coming weeks! Looks like I'll be having some more mastering jobs soon too, so expect more updates soon!
In wake of all this mastering, I've (sort of) added a new page on the website which when finished will provide detailed information on my mastering services. It's still under construction at the moment, though if you're eager to find out more in the mean time please visit this Newgrounds thread for more information: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1387710
Mini update on the new Better Than The Book EP, more lyrics and riffs have been written and it's coming together nicely, though I didn't get as much done this week as I'd hoped (That horrible feeling when you think of some lyrics but they somehow fall out of your head as soon as you find a pen DX)! There's also been some more exciting technical developments which if successful will be AWESOME! No spoilers, but needless to say I am VERY excited :D
More updates: it's roughly 10 days until the end of the Dinosaur Sharing Song Kickstarter's funding campaign, but with only 5% of our goal reached so far, it doesn't look hopeful that we'll be successfully funded, which is a shame. The song will undoubtedly be made in due time, but we'd hoped to get it out sooner with the support of our fans. If you know anyone who might find the project of interest, please feel free to share the Kickstarter link with them, and many thanks to the people who have supported the project so far, your help really means a lot to us.
That's it for this week's news. I'm away for the second half of next week (Wednesday to Sunday), so there'll be no update next Saturday, but I shall try to post one up on Sunday night or Monday morning. I imagine the first half of next week to be either mastering work, or BTTB EP work. We shall see! In the mean time, thanks for supporting JabunAudio and take care!
