Waters of Redemption

Postby West » December 15th, 2016, 11:22 pm

Hey all, long time no see. Just wanted let you know that I've just released a musical fantasy suite (well, an orchestral concept album) called Waters of Redemption.

Sorry about stopping by only to toot my own horn like this, but I figured there might be a few people on here who might be interested.

Neat, I'll have to take a look at some point.

Also, though the topic is (still) locked, I'd imagine that vultraz et al would be interested in your thoughts on this.

I'm a big fan of your music, especially the Wesnoth tracks like Journey's End, Ambuscade etc.

The new album is really awesome! Lots of similarities to the Gol Ashamdir track from one of the Chronicles albums. My favorite is the Redemption track, especially the beautiful theme starting around the 1 minute mark. I bought the album to support your amazing work! I secretly hope (well I guess it's not so secret now) that one day you might return to composing for Wesnoth, but either way I look forward to hearing more of your music in the future.

EDIT: btw, do you give permisson to use some of the music in UMC? just asking.

I can't speak for West, but knowing the sore point that "GPL music" has been in the past, I'd urge everyone who's tempted to hold off until West specifically says something about it. Maybe posting the question to his website will get an answer more quickly than asking here.

Not sure what I could contribute with. I've been a vocal advocate of Wesnoth moving its art resources to CC in the past, so... not a day too soon I guess? All my Wesnoth tracks are already released as CC elsewhere so it's not like I have any problems with this change.

Big thanks Inky! To tell you the truth, Wesnoth has all the music it could possibly need and has had for quite some time. Unless something revolutionary has happened in terms of campaigns and other game content while I've been away, the music bit is basically done. I.e. there's not much point in anyone spending any more time on it, as apparent from the crickets in the Music forum.

Not back, just visiting! ;)

Huh, nope. Why would I want to do that?

Something that can be used for the new desert faction(saracens got mainlined as khalifate meanwhile) could have been neat, but if you say you are finished here then it is so.
