New SFX Library: "Hidden Voices: Flexatone"

Aaaaand the result of the "Guess the Library. Get the Library" - the object that created the sounds was a Flexatone! A bit on the unconventional side, I'd say, but it works wonders in creating voices due to its pliable nature allowing effortless control of the pitch contour. This library brings you 2,000 sounds entirely created by a flexatone (1.25GB), with 4 distinct vocal styles suitable for creatures such as aliens, robots, machines, or sentient computers! Each vocal style has over 450 variations, and over 15 varying emotional sounds - plenty to go around! It is available in two versions: 44.1kHz/16-bit, and 96kHz/24-bit, both for £19.99. You can purchase the 96kHz/24-bit library on my si

"Farewells" - BIMCC #12 (26-27th July 2018)

This blog series details my experiences as a composer-fellow for the "2018 Banaue International Music Composition Competition" ("BIMCC") dedicated to the efforts of the "Banaue Rice Terraces Restoration Project". For the full blog series, click here. With the concert finished, the 2018 BIMCC event was coming to a close and I certainly hope that it has been successful in bringing awareness to the current restoration project. We had one more full day left before our scheduled departures, and we had a blast with it. Foremost, we had lunch at the charming heritage restaurant, "Barbara's", complete with live musicians playing an a mighty fine buffet selection. Barbara's Heritage Restaurant This c

Shopping at the "SM Mall of Asia" But anyway, this blog isn't about shopping. Skip! The Concert Ticket Cultural Center of the Philippines Lobby Composer Smart Dress (it does exist) The Readied Stage Hey, I found a doppelgänger And thus, the concert begins!

This blog series details my experiences as a composer-fellow for the "2018 Banaue International Music Composition Competition" ("BIMCC") dedicated to the efforts of the "Banaue Rice Terraces Restoration Project".

Over the next few days, we had a series of final rehearsals and additional workshops with more excellent composers who were to be judging the competition finals. Most of these took place in the "Philippine International Convention Center" (PICC) in Manila: The Philippine International Convention Center With an alluring floor Where the rehearsals took place And the entire rehearsal for "The Hills of Banaue" at the PICC

"Return to Manila" - BIMCC #9 (20-21st July 2018)

This blog series details my experiences as a composer-fellow for the "2018 Banaue International Music Composition Competition" ("BIMCC")dedicated to the efforts of the "Banaue Rice Terraces Restoration Project". For the full blog series, click here. The voting was terrifically difficult, but had to be done! The results were to be announced some time later the next day. The Voting Sheet And when that day came, it became increasingly sad realizing this was to be our last day up in Banaue; we were to depart for Manila in the evening. But before then, we participated in two further workshops given by two of the judges of the semi-finals. Dr. Chong Kee Yong gave us an interesting insight into his
