Been A While

Been A While

You’re probably wondering what’s taking so long, so it’s time for a quick sum up.

Majora’s Aria has a definitive audio, and the video, partially worked on and left on standby for over a year, is undergoing finishing touches.

Demos 1 and 2 will get a complete makeover, as none of the singers in them are operatic. There will be partial makeovers of other demos as well, to be announced.

After Majora’s Aria, there will only be one demo left to complete the sample portfolio and move to the next phase of the project.

I believe that is all for now. :)

Cheers!

Demo # 7 – Clock Town Choir & Kafei’s Recitativo

Finally.

This was supposed to be the very first demo.

It was also supposed to come out in January 2012.

Happy New Year!

I’m seeing clocks and towns everywhere now.

I'm seeing clocks and towns everywhere now.

It’s good to work on something for too long. You get so fed up, you notice what’s wrong with it better.

Indeed It Didn’t

This is why we’re late.

Clock Town

O hai.

“Are you still working on Majora?”

Yes. Yes I am.

The Clock Town demo keeps being pushed forward simply because each element of our team keeps bumping onto other issues that delay its release. This has been happening sequentially, instead of all at once, which makes it so that we end up have to wait for each other longer than usual.

I apologize for the lack of interaction with the public, but as part of the team I am also experiencing issues. I am, however, taking advantage of the times in which I am not directly writing to expand my portfolio in other musical genres and experimenting with new musical samples while the demo is being prepared. There is never a time at which no part of the Majora project isn’t moving somewhere, it’s just rarer when every single one is.

Worry not, this is not dead. Far from it.

I will come back with more news when they arise. For now, I can say that the vocals are all recorded, the soloist is fantastic, the footage is recorded, and all that is missing is the fine-tuning of the last part of the choir, along with the assembly of the footage into an edited whole.

Don’t overhype it either, it’s still just a demo that is taking long. :P

I’ll see you soon.

On the Next Demos and Q&A #26

After several months, we finally have set dates to record with the singer we wanted for Kafei for the Clock Town Choir and Quartet demos. The first half of September will be dedicated to those recordings (as the choir part has been recorded for well over a year), along with the remaining footage for the Clock Town Choir demo. The completion of that demo will then depend on the time it takes to finish resampling the old instrumental and edit the video.

As for the Majora’s Aria demo, singers are still being evaluated, and submissions are still welcome. We prefer to take the time we can to make sure we have as many entries as possible so we can choose from a wider pool.

And now, to your questions:

Collin V.Just wondering… when you finish the opera, will you make the libretto available to the public? I love reading movie/play/opera scripts in my free time, and since Majora’s Mask is my favorite Zelda game, I’m very interested in reading this.

It’s something I would like to do, yes, at least with the score (which includes the libretto). I even considered making an annotated version.

MaraHi Miguel, I was just wondering. I made a fan poster of sorts for your opera. How can I get it to you? I will post it soon on deviantart, but I would like for you to see it very much. (Also, do you answer all these questions yourself? Or did you take the monkey from the Deku King, and now he answers all your questions?) xD

That’s cool! :) You can e-mail it to me at mbulteau@gmail.com or just include the link in a comment here.

I do answer these questions myself, and as for the monkey, he’s right next to me sipping on a coke. He’s on a break from bursting out of closets and pointing menacingly at people.

Chris JohnsonIs that Jesus in the background of the team photo?

We already have one Jesus, and that’s the third guy in the photo. The guy in the far back is Liam Greenough, 4th member of the team, mentioned here. From front to back, you have me, Aaron Kline, Miguel Jesus and Liam Greenough. There is another photo with better focus on Liam, and I should probably post it around here. The latest interview has a black and white photo of us (at 15:14, if your browser doesn’t like my timed link).
