The debut Jabun album has a title: "Daydream" and an exclusive preview and interview on Chill Vibe Tribe Podcast, + another new animation "Humpty Dumpty" and Channel Trailer from Fun Station 4 Kids!
Another busy week goes by at JabunAudio and there's a whole lot of cool news and stuff to share this time around! Everything's a headline for this blog post, so let's get straight into it!
Firstly, some updates on the Jabun album: After sending out a demo cut of the project to my awesome testing team and having received some great feedback, I spent a lot of this past week going through some little tweaks and corrections (mostly minor things like removing pops, clicks and other small errors), and as it currently stands it's veeeeery nearly sorted! 6 out of the 10 tracks have been finalised in the mastering session, and I'm aiming to get the final WAVs for the album exported by the end of this weekend. As hinted in the previous blog post too, at the end of last week I had the awesome opportunity to join Tony Clark on his Chill Vibe Tribe Podcast to give an exclusive sneak peek of the album's 7th track "Palindrome" as well as talk about my inspirations and writing process when composing it. Apart from the Tales of Zale livestreams, this is my first time actually speaking in a recorded interview, so the whole experience was both exciting and a little nerve-racking, but I hope you enjoy the sneak peek of the album and look into how I work. A huge thanks to Tony for inviting me on and being super cool to work with, and feel free to listen to Palindrome, our interview as well as some of Tony's Music HERE on the Chill Vibe Tribe Podcast Episode 6. Hope you enjoy it!
And before we leave the Jabun news for this week, with the album's audio so close to completion (I've still yet to sort out the artwork though), I feel it's finally time to unveil the album title:
Release details will be revealed next week so keep you eyes on my Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates on the matter. I can't wait to show this to you all!
Next this week, along with doing the tweaks on the Jabun album I've also been busy working with Fun Station 4 Kids on yet another animation (productive times recently)! This one had actually been in the works for quite a while, and it just so happened that the completion of this and 3 Little Raptors and The Beanstalk lined up very closely, hence the 2 animations this month. This week on behalf of the rest of the Fun Station 4 Kids team, I present to you "Humpty Dumpty" as retold by T-Rex and Minisaurus! As usual we have our fine animator and director Anthony Houde providing all the voices, myself doing my usual audio engineering and credits music role, and after a great performance on the previous animation, Vladimir Kuznetsov from World Beyond returns to score the main music for this episode! Hope you enjoy it and without further wait here's Humpy Dumpty as you've never heard / seen it before:
I kinda find it a funny coincidence that this came out on the same day as the Ghost in the Shell live-action film too (I'm a huge fan of the franchise). Hehe, You'll see (cue the various puns)!
And lastly this week (still on the topic of Fun Station 4 Kids), although I didn't actually have anything to do with the editing / engineering for this, our fine director Anthony has been super busy this week and released this channel trailer for the Fun Station 4 Kids YouTube Channel! It features a ton of the animations I worked on with him and the rest of the team and really sums up what the channel is all about. Feel free to give it a watch below and hope you enjoy all our past work and animations to come!
That's about it for this week. Next week's blog post will be the last before a 2 week break for Easter and will feature a formal announcement on the release date for upcoming Jabun album - Daydream so be sure to stop by for this exciting post before the holidays. What's in store for this coming week of work? Well I best knuckle down and get the audio finished for this album and admin and artwork well on the way! It's gonna be a busy one! Until next time, I hope you enjoy the new animations and sneak peek at Daydream / Palindrome and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and my other collaborations and projects! Hope you have a good week and see you next Friday for another exciting blog post!
