Merry Xmas and... a new song!


first of all, Merry Xmas. Finally I finished 'Flying high', the rock song I was working on during the last weeks (may be you heared the sample I posted some weeks a go in my music section).

In the beggining this was planned to be a metal/industrial song (to be part of a extreme sports DVD), but during the composition/recording of the song it turned to a hard rock song with a clear 80s/90s guitarrist song style.

Some changes in the mixing are needed, but it's not an early version anymore. as always, you can listen/download it from here. It's the second one beggining from bottom of the page. Go there and press the 'Hi-Fi' link.

I hope you like it!

Be careful, and don't eat/drink too much during this holidays! :-)

Best regards

Some surprises after a long time!


some months have passed since my last post, so I think I have to pay you for the long waiting...

This summer I've been in Northern France, visiting Normandy and a lot of WWII places, and I have come back with a lot of books, souvenirs, pics, etc. which will help me to get into more WWII taste compositions.

(Don't worry, I suppose I'll post some pics/things here when I get some free time in order to share that experience with all of you) :-)

But I have to admit that I'm a bit dissapointed with FH, because they seem to not be very interested to have somebody doing music for them. Or I have to say: having me doing music for them ;-) It's being really hard, because they don't want 'war film music' in their mod. They seem to prefer some old WWII music.

This music it's fine (I really like it) but I thing most of it isn't very epic, etc. and I think it's very important to emphasize the meaning of all that effort done to get a free world. All the suffering and pain. And I think most of those songs don't have that feeling.

This differences has 'forced' me to forget a bit my own composing style and work in the creation of some cover of these old war songs, as I wrote in my previous post.

But every day I lose interest on that, because I think I should follow my own way due I'm not part of FH team indeed. And that's despite I've heard some 'If we like the next one you'll join' song after song...

So, I'm not angry with them (I still thinking they are doing a great job with the mod, and I still loving it), of course, but I have other interesting proyects on mind.

For example, the "No Fear extreme sports" guys who chose my WWII to be part of their amazing "The great outdoors: The constant war" have contacted me again asking for some rock/metal stuff. I have been playing electric guitar for almost fifteen years and I've played in a heavy metal band, as well as I've been guitar teacher, and it looked a good moment to put some effort to create some rock guitar tune after so many years.

As result of it, I'm working in 'Flying high'. Is not as metal as I'd want, and it's in a very early stage (only some guitar ideas), but I must admit it's being very funny to see how easy is to create a recording studio at home today and record some rock song.

So, I invite you to go to my music's section to hear this song, as well as some WWII demo songs I've been working in the last months.

Please, take in mind all of that stuff are demos and a lot of work stills being necessary to complete them.

Hope you enjoy all of them. And please, give me some feedback!

See you soon here!

Oldies win... For the moment!

Hi again,

after a lot of work creating new stuff for FH2, it seems that FH team prefers to use some oldies from the WWII instead my new compositions as teams' victory and defeat songs.

Despite I still thinking FH should have a 100% original soundtrack, it seems that they prefer these old march armies songs instead more dramatic, epic music, as it uses to be on films and games.

What's your opinion about it?

So, now I'm finishing a cover of a famous tommies' song to use it as Britain victory theme. I won't give you further details, but a beta version will be available soon here, so stay tunned to give me some feedback. ;-)

See ya soon!

First beta of Britain's victory theme

Here it is!

The first beta of Britain's victory theme for Forgotten Hope 2 mod!

To listen it go HERE and click the 'HI-FI' link of the "Victory theme - Britain - FH2" song. This allows you to listen the song, but if you want to download the MP3 you'll need to create an account (fast & free).

As I've said in my previous post, due the lenght of victory & defeat songs of BF2 this song it's only 20 secs long.

Pipebags has been chosen for the solo melody and there's a military rhythm round it.
What do you think about it?

Thanks and please, give me some feedback!!

I hope you like it. I'll be back soon with new stuff !! :)

FH2 victory and defeat songs

Hi again!

after many weeks idle here I am again! I'm working in four new WWII epic songs. This time I'm creating victory and defeat songs for German and Britain, to be included in the incoming Forgotten Hope 2 mod.

The lenght of these songs will be 15-30 secs, to fit the measure of EA's Battlefield 2 defeat and victory songs.

Britain defeat song is very close to be completed, and victory song is under hard development. German songs are only melodies in this moment, but they'll be upgraded as soon Britain songs are completed.

In the incoming weeks these songs will be available in this website. I hope you'll give me some feedback about them! ;-)

See ya soon!
