The day is finally here! I have an exciting announcement to share with you.
I have released a new music album that is very unique to today's musicscape. It uses classic video game instrumentation intertwined with five different generations of music: 70s Disco, 80s Synths, 90s Rock, 00s Electronica, and 10s Text-to-Speech Vocals. The album has three different video game elements in the songs. The album is called Stargate and there are nine all-original songs:
1. Get Groovin'!
2. Analog Man
3. Choralis Quo
5. Electric Heartbeat
6. Dancin' + Romacin'
7. Arrangement Of Derangement
8. Magnetic Ride
9. Rock It Tonight
Here's the list of classic synths (represented by Logic Pro X plugins) and video game sounds:
So, how do you get the album? Here are the links for streaming and purchase:
Apple iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and Tidal:
If you're an Apple Music subscriber, you can also tell Siri, "Hey Siri, play the album Stargate by Blaine Locklair". If you're on Amazon Music, you can say, "Alexa, play the album Stargate". Very cool.
I hope you enjoy the music. A lot of love for the classic gaming scene went into creating sounds for it. I hope it gives you as much joy listening to it as it gave me to compose and perform it. Please feel free to share any feedback you have about the album. It will be greatly beneficial for this and future projects. If you like the album, I hope you can also take a moment to rate it on your music service of choice. It goes a long way to helping out a fellow classic gamer.
I'll add new info about the album and the process here over the upcoming days. I think the shares will be interesting to all.
Last, but not least, special thanks to AA member Jesse Hardesty for his contributions to the title track. He provided me with some valuable insights throughout the creation process.
