Summer is flying fast. I start school in one month. I'm going to make this month count!
I've been working on the Epic Music album everyday for a week now. There is a lot more to do than I thought there would be. For starters, I have to actually finish composing the rest of the music, then I have to get my brother to finish the album artwork, then I have to decide what music is actually going to be on the album, what order the tracks will be in (because I'm OCD like that), then make sure all the pieces sound good, then upload them, then... I don't even know. This is all new for me. But I think I am almost there.
I'm writing here on the blog because... well, I can't decide. I can't decide what music should actually go on the album. I have a lot of older pieces people like, such as Isle of Swords (pirate genre) and The Wild Hills of Erin (an older piece which oddly has 40,000 plays on SoundCloud). Remember, the album is called Epic Music, so I don't want to put pieces on the album that aren't necessarily... epic. But then that makes me think: do I put on Ever After? People seemed to really like that piece too. (It's the second most played on my SoundCloud). But... it's a celtic piece, if anything. As you can tell, I'm over thinking all of it and should probably just make up my mind already and put it on iTunes.
Here's my rough guess of what I am going to do:
1.) A Great Destiny
2.) Swords of the Six [redone]
3.) Beyond Death
5.) At All Costs [I never actually liked this piece... haha]
6.) As the World Ends
7.) Guts and Glory
8.) Free Spirit
10.) Voice from Heaven [NEW]
11.) I Am Transformer
12.) Never Back Down [NEW]
13.) Not As It Seems
14.) Ever After [maybe]
TOTAL TIME: 43.6 minutes
I wanted to post a preview of Swords of the Six, Voice from Heaven, and Never Back Down.
And I think that's about it. I'm going to get back to work. If you have any thoughts, suggestions, critiques, please... comment. Let me know.
Thanks for listening,
