Waters of Redemption is now out! I recommend getting it from Bandcamp.com (as that version includes a pdf booklet with map, storyline and credits), but you can also find the album on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play Music, Amazon and many other places. As I really think you should check out the storyline — the music will make a lot more sense that way — the pdf is also available for download from here.
Waters of Redemption is a musical fantasy suite inspired by the RPG soundtracks of yesteryear. It is a tragic, bittersweet tale of love, loss and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. And, most of all, the bond between a brother and sister that transcends death itself.
The album was composed entirely on an Acer netbook, using decades-old instrument samples and a small-scale keyboard controller; partly as an excercise in working within hard technical constraints, and partly as a reaction against the current trend of terabyte-sized sample libraries and ultra-realism in virtual orchestral music.
Enjoy! And don’t hesitate to let me know your feelings about this project.
Update 2: It’s now out on Amazon as well!
