It's been a busy week working on a new Hip-Hop track with Cyberdevil as well as other stuff. There's still a little more arrangement and recording to do (as well as mixing and mastering of course), but I hope to have it all done by the end of next week once Cyberdevil gets back from his excursion up north. It's less nu-metal than last time, though it's sounding schweet nonetheless. It's been too long since I made some Hip-Hop!
In other news, I've got wind that the new Lights, Camera, Attraction! EP is on its way (though I don't have an ETA yet).
Also some exciting news! On top of my current animation team, I've been in contacts with a very talented Danish animator by the name of Sif Perlt Savery AKA "Hikarian". She's currently animating the first episode of "Tales of Zale" an awesome sounding story summerised by the writer herself as follows:
Tales of Zale is the story of a young, curious fox named Zale, and his best friend, the barn owl Elva. Together they explore the mysteries of a world in which the humans are long gone, and all that is left are the ruins of their creations. Along the way they’ll meet many other animals, some with good intentions and others not so much. In the end, will Zale be able to find the answers he seek and solve the mysteries of the forest he lives in?
The series will consist of 5 minute-episodes, and though 10 episodes have been planned all in all the focus is currently just on creating the first two, which will be uploaded to YouTube and Newgrounds.com.
I'm down as the mixing/mastering engineer for the animation which is due to be released around the beginning of December. I've already heard some of the voices and it's safe to say, it's gonna be awesome!
Show Sif your support on Newgrounds, Youtube and her own website, and check out her other videos! You will not be disappointed!
Finally, I've been in talks with the creator of Skyreef about doing the soundtrack for a smaller video-game project. I've been set one piece to compose so far though the full soundtrack should be around 12 minutes long (lotsa 1-2 minute loops!). I got to play a pre-alpha at the beginning of the week which was really cool (and DIFFICULT!). More news on this project later :3
That's all for this week. Stay tuned every Saturday for more updates and or blasts from the past!
