Talk To Me, Goose!

 Hi again,

yep, I know, I know... I just released a new song. But here goes a new one!

"Top Gun: Maverick", the sequel of the movie "Top Gun", has been premiered a few days ago and it's going to be available for the general public in a few weeks.

Being the original movie an icon of the 80s, and the premiere of "Maverick" having being delayed for two years due the COVID-19 pandemic the hype has been pretty high about this one.

The Fighter Pilot Podcast is going to release a series focusing in the US Navy Top Gun weapon school, and they needed a song to fit the theme. After some demos I decided to do a partial cover of the original Top Gun Anthem, changing it a bit, most notably adding a new original section at the end.

Here it goes, I hope you like it :)


Best regards

Out of the drawer now!

Hi again folks, 

I'm not sure about you, but whenever I have an idea for a new song I record it. Even if it's just a guitar riff, or something I've come up with while noddling with the keyboard, I record it with my DAW or whatever is at hand (my cellphone, for example). This way if I need to create a new song for a project I don't need to start from scratch. I just have to search among these demos that suits what I need and use it as starting point. 

From time to time I like to navigate through my hard disk, checking all these demos. Just for the fun of it. I have a pretty bad memory, so it's not unusual for me to find something there and say: hey, thats sounds cool! 

That's exactly what happened last week. I found an almost finished song I created last summer (July 2021) for a project which is not finished yet. It mixes orchestral and metal sounds to get an epic result (hopefully). I decided it was time to give it a final touch and release it. So here it is. Well, in fact I've made it available both YouTube and BandCamp. Hope you like it.

Happy new 2022 and a new song!

 Hi again folks!

so, 2021 has passed and we have a brand new year to waste. And with it comes a new song! The Fighter Pilot Podcast requested a new song to be used as theme for the whole 2022 year. Once again it had to be a metal song, so that is what I created!

The final version wasn't the usual song though. It had been created to be easily editable by the podcast production team so it could be cut or looped to created the bumper of each episode depending on the needed lenght. Thus it had a long 45 sec loopable intro, followed by two different sections separated by a few seconds so the trails of the first one didn't overlap the second section and they could be used independently or merged, depending on the needs.

Once finished I created this edited version which you may consider a "normal" song. Anyway, here it is:

Hope you like it. As always, take care out there and see you here again soon!

Regards

Iron Flag

 Hi again folks,

I almost forgot about this one... I finished it back in May. If was created to the be theme of the Iron Flag Part I campaign for DCS A-10CII Tank Killer simulation. But the campaign hasn't been available until today. So here it goes:

 If it sounds familiar to you is because they asked me if it could be inspired to certain song of the most famous heavy metal band from England ;)

Here you can listen the song as the soundtrack of the trailer video created for the campaign (note the guitar solos at the end are different that the version I post above):

 

And with this I'm going to wrap 2021. I hope you've had a good year (all things considered). See you in 2022! Have a nice Xmas and a Happy New Year!!

Kindest regards

"The Raven" - Orchestral section

 Hi again,

a couple of days ago someone posted a comment in the YouTube video of one of my old songs ("Entering Battle Reprise"). He/She suggested me to create more music like that (orchestral/epic). 

Truth be said I haven't created a lot of songs like that in a long time, mostly due the kind of projects I'm involved with lately needed rock/metal songs in most cases.

But then I remembered "The Raven", a song I did last year for a campaign that was being developed for DCS World, a Flight combat simulator. This song started with a short rock introduction and then a longer progressive metal section. After that comes an orchestral theme, which was calm in the beginning, but then evolves and becomes an epic piece.

So I decided it was probably a good idea to publish that orchestral section separately. I've just uploaded it to Bandcamp and also to YouTube, using as video the trailer created for the campaign when it was released. Here is the video:


And If you just want to stream the audio here it goes:

I hope you like it!
