A Great, Underrated Soundtrack Given the Proper Attention. :)

February 11, 2014 Leave a comment

Hi there, how have you been?

Coincidentaly in a week I was digging my ol’ Bomberman II (NES) cart to make some scans I stumbled on this fortunate surprise: its soundtrack is now neatly organized at Soundcloud. :)

Bomberman II

June Chikuma–the awesome composer behind the work–was kind enough to upload a lot of videogame stuff at her profile there and there are plenty of lessons to be taken for free. My favorite one is the aforementioned Bomberman II OST because in this work she managed to expand former ideas to unconceivable depths at the time and turned something until then only catchy into some really classic pieces.

Without further ado, enjoy her generosity and take a listen yourself. I’m sure you’re gonna enjoy it. :)

Take care, see ya!

Capcom… Here I Go!

Hi there, how are you doing?

Remember that Street Fighter 25th Anniversary celebration I talked about a little while ago? Well, I’m proud to say I’m in! Capcom has selected my recording to be feature in their future releases!

So I’m here to share a new final recording/master for them… It’s a bit more intense, low and fat–just like Zangief, who owns the theme. lol

Hope you like it, see ya!

Street Fighter 25th Anniversary

Nice Ryu, but I choose Zangief. -.-

Late Enough, EP#2. lol

Hi there, how are you all doing?

Sometime ago I talked about a series of EPs I was intending to assemble to help me getting a bigger project going. Now I want to present the second iteration in the enterprise, featuring an instrumental mix with a London train field recording by Mark Durham and an original song–don’t pay attention to the rushed bass, it was recorded in between classes within the few time lapse windows I have. :P

Hope you like it!

A Secret Still Untold. (EP#2)

The others, one ready another yet to come:

A Secret Still Untold. (EP#1) A Secret Still Untold. (EP#3)

New EPs, Old Project. lol

Hi there, how are you all doing?

Some time ago I mentioned a “British” songs project that evolved into an “overseas” project which I never have the time to really finish… lol But here is another effort on that matter.

Since I’ve been mixing instrumental themes to field recordings from Soundclouders I decided to come up with a series of 3 EPs showing at least part of the job done so far. Each set contains a song, an instrumental mix (those with the field recordings) and a couple sketches of the songs while being composed.

#1 is up, I hope you enjoy it–and look forward for the next ones. :)

See ya!

A Secret Still Untold. (EP#1)

Wait for the others…

 

London Calling! lol

Another track from my not-so-secret-British-project… :P This one is a mix of an instrumental theme with an in loco recording of a train station noise in London. It’s called “Chery(ish) Blossom” for many, many reasons. -.- lol

Thanks to Mark Durham for the train recording… Oh, and that reminds me of talking about an amazing new group at SoundCloud called Found Sounds focused exactly in capturing those weird sounds from pretty much everything… Even that old cricket of mine was featured in their blog a couple days ago. :P

Take your time, enjoy the links and the song. Have a nice week. ;)

A Cricket Inside My Database

February 28, 2011 1 comment

A little while ago I was in my recording room working in a couple songs and since it was a hot-as-hell day (like many others in Brazil) I just got off of my chair to open every window, door and pretty much any other aperture available urging for some fresh air.

When I went back to my original place there he was: a giant brown cricket sitting on the top of my 12-string guitar’s hand. And man, the thing was “singing” at a massive volume level–to the point it could induce some brain melting issue if I stayed with him inside the same room for a longer time.

Well, I was about to lend him back to the banana plants behind my house when I came to think “why not take a shot of this nasty crooner?” lol… And then I picked my mic and stayed aside him waiting for the next wave. You can listen to it here:

Beautiful, isn’t it? :P But it was even more surprising to see the perfect sine wave that came from the guy:

Cricket Singing

Don't you dare to say it isn't beautiful.

After that I went outside with my guitar–and him, of course–and set it free in one piece.

What I say is we must stay alert to those apparently silly little opportunities. You never know when you’ll need a cricket sound effect–and actually I turned that one into a laser beam the other day. But that’s another story…
