A look back at 2017 – My Year in Music

A list of all the music stuff I was involved in for 2017:

・I composed 26 tracks for an upcoming RPG called A Story of the End – Revere: Episode Dream, of which I’ve only shared three publicly. I’m really excited about all of this music!

・I arranged and produced my first track for a Materia Collective album, “Tavern” from ZODIAC: Final Fantasy Tactics Remixed, working with three amazing musicians who recorded live parts for me (Ian Martyn on whistle, Lori Syngajewski on clarinet, and Sam Bobinski on upright bass).

・I also contributed to two tracks on another Materia Collective album, SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X – Besaid Mix: as an English to Japanese translator for song lyrics on Reven’s beautiful track “Welcome to Luca”.

And as mix engineer on Connor Boyd’s awesome track, “Stranger Seymour”.

・It’s not due out until early 2018, but I arranged and produced another track for an upcoming Materia Collective release; for this one I was fortunate enough to work with nine different musicians who all recorded live parts for me (I’ll tag you all when the album drops, but you know who you are).

・I composed and released my fourth and fifth original game soundtracks (Room 42 and YOMOTSU). YOMOTSU being my first soundtrack that wasn’t self-published, but put out by a label.

・Speaking of YOMOTSU: the game won first place in this year’s Indie Game Maker Contest!

・I had the great honor of composing a demo track for Gothic Instruments (Dronar Live Strings), Sampleso (Floppytron), and three for Impact Soundworks (Ventus Pan Flutes, MOMENTUM, and Ventus Ocarinas).

・I participated in, and successfully completed, Video Game Music Academy’s 21 Days of VGM challenge.

・Despite being super busy with music for actual projects, I arranged two pieces by Yasunori Mitsuda just for fun, “Eternal Soul” from Tsugunai, and “Bonds of Sea and Fire” from Xenogears.

・Outside of soundtracks stuff, I also composed two original works just for fun, “The Commoners Square” and “The Place We Called Home”.

・I surpassed 35,000 plays on my Soundcloud!
