Back on Track | New Song

Yello!

Finally I got around to make another song and have it uploaded here. Thanks for all the supportive mail I got in my absence btw. Cool to know you are listening in from time to time. The new track "Alpha Centauri" is in the download-section, and is more or less a practice-run for me to get back into things. Anyways, hope you like it.

Video below if you want moving images with the sound.


Comeback Time!

2010-09-15 12:55:08 by SkyMarshall

Yello ...

Have I been bussy? - Yes
Have I been bussy for a whole year? - Yes
Why? - well, because life just happens sometimes.

Anyway, I have decided to dust off my old hardware and fire up the old synth again, and at least try to stimulate the creative muscle enough to spew out some more gamer-tunes for those of you interested :)

So, right now I am working on a new song with Hania Lee (she's in here as well) who does part of the vocals on the next one. I feel a bit rusty to be honest, but making music is basically like riding a bicycle actually. Just need to get started again.

So this will all be ready in a little while, and so will "www.skymarshallarts.com" ...

Appreciate the insane amounts of reviews btw. It's inspiring to say the least.
See you alle soon :)

New song: "Farscape"

Yeah so here we go again :) A lot of time has rocketed by since the last song came out, but here you have Farscape. The 2nd track on the "Back in Time"-album. Hope you guys like it - or at least dont hate it.

Listen: SkyMarshall Arts - Farscape

Pretty straight forward production, alltough it took a looong time to get it right. There is a lot going on in here, and my system almost died on me a couple of DAMN annoying times. My Roland amp/sc which is supposed to be good also struggled a little. But I got through it. So here it is rendered, mastered and ready to go. Also managed to whip up a video real quick to fit the theme.

Time to figure out what to do next :p

Happy 2009 folks ...

Finally managed to squeeze out another song, to start off my new 2009-album: "Back in Time". Tried to make a vocal dance/game/SID-tune that would be catchy and memorable ... and this is what I ended up with. Have a listen and see if it strikes yer fancy :)

Listen: SkyMarshall Arts - Back in Time

So, with this finished I can consentrate on filling out the missing 19 tracks on the new album. It will include remixes of a lot of old games I played and still remember with misty eyes. And that will happen regurarly in the coming months.

So for those who give a shit: "Welcome back" c",)


New Website for SkyMarshall Arts

So I went and designed myself a new website - just to get all my music sorted, and have an organized portal for me to publish everything about the music and so forth in the future. I think it turned out very well, and I love the automation I managed to get in this. No more tedious Dreamweaver-hours. The site pretty much runs itself.

So Im happy with it ... and thought I had to share :)

LISTEN: "SkyMarshall Arts - Eclipse [Apoptygma Tribute]

Vocals by: Eirik Blodøks Hafskjold (me)
Made in: Cubase SX3, FLStudio 7 and Adobe Audition 1.5
Amiga 500-loading sound provided by "DjOpposite"

Lyrics :)

"Cause today we'll catch a glimpse of eternity.
As the world stands perfectly still - just for a moment.
For the very first time, and it is meant to be.
Yeah, we'll forget about ourselves - and share the moment.

But today we'll catch a glimpse of eternity.
As the world stands still - for a moment.
And I guess we'll all be making history.
As we all join hands - just to watch the sky.

For the very first time, and it is meant to be.
Yeah, we'll forget about ourselves - and share the moment.
And I guess we'll all be making history.
As we all join hands - just to watch the sky."


Out of this World - Next Project

Yes I know I said Zelda was next - but if I am going to do a remix - I want the remix to be as good as it can possibly be. And Im not in a Zelda-mood right now. So later:)

Anyway, there will still be a game-remix coming up. And this time around I have decided to give one of my all-time Amiga-favorites a go. "Another World" is the game - and everybody playing games back then knows what I am talking about. But I already have a song with that title - so I will name it "Out of This World" instead - which is what it's called in the US. I am well on the way, and it wont be long before I finish. It will probably be a very up-beat euro-dance song. (as usual) ...

To those who cared ... love ya :)

ATTENTION!!! This project is on hold for now!!! :) (which song though?)

Yeah well, summer is over. And 4 weeks of relaaax is over. Back to work this monday. So time to fire up the music-production again. And yes, this time I will do something from The Legend of Zelda. I dont know what, I dont know from which game and I dont know what tune or melody. But there will be something from those games, done in a dance/trance-kinda way. I will start this immediately, and see what happens. I promise it wont suck - it just cant - I love Zelda too much for that to happen.

And thanks for all the reviews - downloads and favories. I LOVE it :)

Road-trip ... so a little production time-off :)

Have a nice summer everyone :D

Vacation-time for me and the misses, and this means I won't be making music for the following two weeks. Going on a road-trip around the country (Norway) actually. Checking out the sites we got to offer for a while. So hotels, tents and cabins - here we come. And YES, it will be good.

I just released "Resident Evil" though, so it's not all bad. And I got several other ideas floating around. So the laptop will tag along for the ride, just in case I get the sudden urge to plot in a melody or two before they are lost and forgotten.

Anyway ... I'll be checking in everyday anyway.
Have a nice vacation people ... for those of you lucky enough to have one atm :)
