  1. Thanks everyone! <sniff> I'm thankful and humbled and... <BAWL>!!!!!!
  2. Zircon? Big Giant Circles? Danny Baranowsky? Jillian Aversa? Virt? And my humble self Alexander Brandon? On one album? Yes. And it now has a Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/993503511/just-fun OCR has a growing influence on game music and these talented folks are among the many that have collaborated with me on this album. Head over to check it out, and if you'd be so kind pledge and / or share. Thanks so much!! -Alex
  3. Greetings OCR denizens! I've completed a rather interesting project. It's a playable game album called Initium Squared. It takes cues from earlier projects I've worked on like Unreal and Deus Ex but adds new styles as well. It also showcases the sound design from my production house Funky Rustic. I hope you enjoy it! The album and the demo are linked below along with a trailer: https://vimeo.com/48983473 http://www.funkyrustic.net/Initium2.html http://funkyrustic.bandcamp.com/ Feedback welcome! We'll be having contests later for download codes to the album. -Alexander Brandon
  4. Greetings all! Apologies if this is the wrong forum section but I have just released a new album. While not a remix, it involves a lot of work I've done recently, some of which hearkens back to my work on the "Unreal" series. In addition I was lucky enough to collaborate with Information Society singer Kurt Larson for guest vocals on one of the tracks (Shrinking). Kurt is now audio director at Nihilistic. Finally a shout out to Jimmy "Big Giant Circles" Hinson who turned me on to Omnisphere, this album has a huge amount of influence from that awesome synth We hope you enjoy the tunes! http://alexanderbrandon.bandcamp.com/album/violet-eclectic -Alex Brandon
  5. Greetings all! You can't get away from your roots, at least that's what they told Macbeth, and look what happened to him when he didn't believe it. So I've written up a piece that is very similar to the stuff that got me started in video games (apart from Tyrian). Try to imagine playing DX3 before it's released, or if an Unreal 3 gets released. This piece is inspired by that feeling and that style. http://alexanderbrandon.bandcamp.com/ I hope you enjoy it and that it does the original soundtracks justice. -Alex
  6. Greetings all, Alex Brandon here. At Heatwave we're developing a new social Facebook game called Platinum Life: Web Edition. First, check out the game if you haven't already. http://apps.facebook.com/platinumlife/ It is a really new direction for me musically as well as in terms of the scope of a game project. It is based on hip hop, and while I'm an old school hip hop fan I really haven't paid much attention to it since. There's definitely a lot of cool stuff out there, and a lot of stuff that isn't so cool. Something tells me at least a few composers on OCR that writes hip hop / hip hop beats, and writes it well. Thus, since our project is still in beta, we're soliciting beats from numerous sources, and this site and its denizens was one of the first that came to mind. The beats need to be anywhere between 30 seconds to 1 minute in length and have three segments, gradually increasing in intensity. An intro, a main beat, and a "super" beat, something that sounds more powerful than the main beat. The details are: We're not paying for these beats. Not because we're evil, but the project hasn't reached it's targets yet and until that happens we're on something of a "find creative ways to get content" situation. What we ARE doing is providing credit and a means to buy the beat on the author's website. I'll be totally up front here. If I were offered this sort of thing I'd take it for the exposure, but there'd also be a limit. I wouldn't want to do more than a few beats without payment. This is exactly what we expect. It is very easy to see such offers as this as extortion, and asking for anything for free is a risky and contentious proposition. So if this offends you in any way I apologize, and there's no obligation whatsoever, please feel free to turn up your nose. I'd definitely understand. What IS cool is your music, your name, in front of a ton of Facebook users (and rising a lot daily), and seen in the same artist group as little known rappers like Ludacris. If this interests you please email me, my address is deliberately separated for spam purposes, but you know what goes where. Thanks a lot for reading. I hope to hear from anyone interested! abrandon -at- heatwave -dot- com. -Alex
  7. Greetings all, Alex Brandon here. BGC was kind enough to post about the release of Earthscape earlier. Now there's a shiny CD with VO intro tracks in a sort of "behind the scenes" Limited Edition version for sale. Hit this link to buy: http://www.alexanderbrandon.net/store.html And this link if you haven't heard the tunes: http://alexanderbrandon.bandcamp.com/ Thanks for listening! A single is on the way as an Unreal remix, which I may convince the good folks at Epic to allow to be made "official". Wish me luck -Alex
  8. Greetings everyone, My new album just got released, head here to check it out. Feedback / comments welcome! http://alexanderbrandon.bandcamp.com/ A follow up single is on the way, based on my old Unreal comps. -Alex
  9. This is definitely a cool remix. I had no idea Tyrian's music would be taken to this kind of level. Having said that, Composition in Q was actually written by Andreas Molnar. Andreas deserves a lot of credit for a number of pieces in Tyrian. Granted, I didn't exactly hire him for them, but he programmed the "Loudness" sound system, which in its day was the best AdLib system ever created, turning standard AdLib instruments into full blow DX7 synth sounding ones. He even converted a MOD I made (for the return to Savara level) into that format, so the guy definitely pulled his weight and his tunes made for excellent contributions. So thanks, Disturbed, for a job well done and keeping the Tyrian flame alive!
