Title: [RELEASE] Music/Album: Formation II: Across the Galaxy
Post by: ShadowsOfLight on February 06, 2021, 03:55:02 pm
I am on the cusp of releasing a new album, called Formation II: Across the Galaxy. It is made up of 12 instrumental soundtrack-ish orchestral/electronic tracks and runs just over an hour, with themes around various types of stars and nebulae. One of the tracks has already been converted for use in Series Resurrecta as an in-flight set!

Anyways, since it has the space theme and a lot of my initial inspiration at getting into songwriting was from the Freespace series, I thought I'd post it here ahead of release to see if anyone has any thoughts. For the purposes of this post it's just 192kbps .mp3s on a shared Google Drive folder, but I will soon release it formally on Bandcamp (free/donation) and most streaming services. Feel free to download and keep, or wait until the formal release, I'm happy as long as I know people are listening!

For anyone who has the interest, I would appreciate a note on whether this is publishing-worthy or it still has some glaring errors/imbalances/inconsistencies. With the caveat that this is just a hobby, I am not Hans Zimmer or Dan Wentz ;)
Edit: I received enough feedback to be comfortable publishing. It is now sitting with a distributor, so it should be on most online stores/streaming services by mid-Feb. I will update the below list as they come in.

Thanks Mobius! It's been fun to work with the SR team :D

I should add... Anyone who has thoughts on genre or similar artists would be super helpful.
