The blog is being migrated and merged with multiple Imphenzia blogs so the format and content will be inconsistent for a while.

An orchestral first for soundtrack

Today marked a new milestone in Imphenzia Soundtrack as the first orchestral tack was released. Due to its character it was named "Emperor Victorious" as it portrays a glorious, somewhat epic (although that word is very much overly used) and powerful mood. The track received nice and encouraging feedback in the Indegamer development forums.

Coming from making electronic music this new orchestral style had a fair share of challenges involved. The first step was to identify what instruments actually play in a track. Once I achieved this, I had to go through the building blocks of cinematic style music - and boy is it complex or what? Not only do you have to pay close attention to the architecture of instruments and melodies - but also how the individual notes are played dynamically in terms of velocity and emphasis.

Next step for me is to upgrade my sample library to the huge sample collection "East West Samples Complete Composers Collection - Play Edition", probably with the Platinum upgrade for 24bit orchestral samples each recorded from three different microphone positions. I can hardly wait for this library and I am convinced it will lead to a great deal of new cinematic style tracks!

Imphenzia Soundtrack Launched

I have launched a new section of Imphenzia called 'Imphenzia Soundtrack'. Creators of games, movies, videos, multimedia projects, films, commercials - or whatever(!) - will be able to find music for their projects here. There is both exclusive and non-exclusive tracks available for both commercial and free projects.

Have a look at the new section at http://soundtrack.imphenzia.com - it features the new '2008' look of the Imphenzia sites. Hope you liket it.
