Introducing: A'deo Chronicle Original Soundtrack (Project VGM)

Recommended Posts

In the Spring of 2011, I came up with a crazy idea. I wanted to make an RPG soundtrack--a big RPG soundtrack. Like those big three and four-disc sets we became accustomed to beginning in the mid-to-late 90s. Final Fantasy VII, Breath of Fire III, Genso Suikoden II... you get the idea.

It started with a modest thread over at rpgamer.com where I asked the community to hit me with their original RPG ideas, from characters to places to plot concepts. The collaborative brainstorming yielded a wide variety of ideas, which I then compiled, revised, synthesized, and organized into a full scenario outline for a fictional RPG.

Following the creation of a 100-track long tracklist, I went in search of composers who, like myself, loved RPG soundtracks. It didn’t take long to fill up the roster, and thirty-five composers and 100 compositions later, we're finally ready to tell the story of A'deo Chronicle.

A’deo Chronicle was conceived as a Japanese-style, traditional turn-based RPG. That said, the things you will hear on this soundtrack are highly influenced by that particular genre’s wide range of music. Our collective influence takes pages from the old-school and modern era alike and includes both Japanese and Western flavors. There’s truly something for everyone!

Please see our main website below where you will find a variety of ways to listen to the soundtrack:

Enjoy!
