IMG-20150306-00488Liam, helping revise the Clock Town Choir’s libretto.

Some of it is different, definitely better, but much like those of you who might be singing the lyrics to the game’s theme as you play, I will take a long while to excise the old ones from my mind as well. X_X

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.

Clock Town’s Power Bill

Hello, internet. I haven’t written here in a while, and I find that to be rude.

The project is moving, fear not, it’s just that life piles up all sorts of complications we’re supposed to sort out one by one. For those who look at the progress bars on the right, you’ll be happy to know that I’m actually quite past the point at which they have been stuck for a while. Thing is, I only advance those things when the score is actually in a digital format. The opera’s progress has been mostly on paper for some time, now. But you will be briefed on that later on.

Right now, I have a massive headache and feel like a short rant on today’s lighting test for the Clock Town demo.

So I got up, see? Got all ready and stuff, and left for the train station carrying a heavy bag full of lights and wires and things. My destination was one hour away, give or take, and I was right on time. It’s just that there would be no trains today…

… until one hour later.

The trains were on strike. Again. And this time they didn’t even bother to warn, you know, the people. They probably figured we’re all a bunch of rich bastards who would never ride a train anywhere on a Sunday. Rich bastards don’t usually take the train, mind you, but they didn’t seem to care about the inherent flaw in their logic.

After finding a scapegoat in the form of a scrawny man at the ticket booth to yell at, I grabbed my bag and prepared to declare this weekend wasted, having no other way of reaching my destination on time, or even an hour late, when my future in-laws, thanks to my future wife, came up with a brilliant idea: the impromptu ride.

Whaddaya know, it worked. I got to my destination half an hour ahead of schedule. I need to note this stuff down. Miguel was waiting for me there, and so in we went to the room he had found met our needs.

In the paraphrased words of His Eminency Dr. Walken PhD: NEEDS MOAR LIGHT.

We still need the final verdict from Aaron (the film dude, in case you’re too little of a human being to read the credits in the video descriptions, like me), but from what I could see Clock Town will need yet another lighting test to make sure we can assemble all the people (oh lawd, another ordeal) and film the damn thing already.

The audio’s been ready since Summer, and I can’t believe it’s December already.

So yeah, we’re alive, we’re going, and you’ll hear from us again soon in what concerns the writing process.

P.S: My MIDI controller got lost in the mail and I got a refund. Yay… >_>
