Kartmaze to release The Lighthouse on October 12thhttp://ubiktune.org/news/2014/kartmaze-to-release-the-lighthouse-on-october-12thhttp://ubiktune.org/news/2014/kartmaze-to-release-the-lighthouse-on-october-12th

Kartmaze (Mads Aasvik) is back with his second album The Lighthouse! After his 2013's debut Seven Journeys to a New Home, he spent last year crafting the new progressive musical adventure, that lasts almost a hour in length.

The album was mixed and mastered by Stein Bratland and Mads Aasvik at Skansen Studio Lydstudio in Thondheim, Norway and features artwork by Nikolai Lockertsen.

The Lighthouse introduction:

Far west, where the trees have yielded to the howling wind, where the land meets the vast ocean and the scent of seawater thickens the air, you will find it. For hundreds of years the Lighthouse has guided seafarers far from home around the rocky shore, not even once failing its duty. Neither the thickest of fogs nor the blackest of nights are enough to lure the ships towards the treacherous reef.

Waves larger than giants ceaselessly break upon on the rugged brickwork and the raging winds always come back for another battle, but the Lighthouse never succumbs to the wrath of the storms. When the clash between the massive masonry and mighty tempest has settled down, the birds come out to play within the crimson sky. Eternally, like a pillar of fire, even when the air is crystal clear and the waters transform into an endless mirror, the Lighthouse keeps on aiding those in need of guidance.

♬♬♬

The Lighthouse will be released on October 12th. Meanwhile, check out the 8-minutes single called "Lighthouse pt. II: The Storm" on our Soundcloud. The track is available for free download.

Zackery Wilson — SNESQUEhttp://ubiktune.org/releases/ubi076-zackery-wilson-snesquehttp://ubiktune.org/releases/ubi076-zackery-wilson-snesque

Zackery Wilson’s SNESQUE is the marriage of Super Nintendo soundfonts (i.e. collections of samples from original Super Nintendo video games) and modern-day audio production (i.e. EQ, delay, reverb, filters, etc.). For each original track, Zack adhered strictly to self imposed limitations: Each was created using only one soundfont(exclusive to each respective game), again, only taking liberties with audio production and some creative sample manipulation (i.e. pitch-shifting, time-stretching, etc.); the structure of each track limited to roughly a minute’s worth of music, looping once (in the tradition of standard video game “level” music) before fading out.

From progressive rock to jazz fusion, samba to swing, SNESQUE is a hodgepodge of musical styles, connected by the nostalgic sound of Super Nintendo video games and the familiarity of present-day audio production techniques.

Kickstarter: Rekcahdam's Band Sagahttp://ubiktune.org/news/2014/kickstarter-rekcahdam-s-band-sagahttp://ubiktune.org/news/2014/kickstarter-rekcahdam-s-band-saga

Rekcahdam, one of the developers of Celestial Mechanica, the web chiptune sequencer Pulse Boy, and the author of recently released Band Saga LP is running a Kickstarter campaign for his dream project Band Saga, of which the aforementioned album is a part.

Band Saga is a modern Action Roguelike where every level, enemy and item is generated by music. Furthermore, every melody and every sound is synthesized in real time as you play. Each new area explored will unlock new sounds, items and the ability to modify and sequence them musically in Band Saga's built-in FM Sequencer reminiscent of the Sega Genesis.

Meanwhile, you can check out this sneak peek video of the Tokyo Game Show 2014 demo:

Learn more about Band Saga on Kickstarter page and support his dream project! The campaign will be live until Thursday, Oct 2 2014 4:41 AM.

Zackery Wilson to release SNESQUEhttp://ubiktune.org/news/2014/zackery-wilson-to-release-snesquehttp://ubiktune.org/news/2014/zackery-wilson-to-release-snesque

Zackery Wilson is a composer, pianist, and video game music enthusiast currently living in Austin, TX. Like so many others of similar age, Zack grew up playing the video games of yesteryear and, subsequently, latched onto their infectious soundtracks, particularly the jazz-based harmonic language of early video game music. It wasn't until fairly recently, though, that Zack became directly involved with the VGM/chiptune community, first uploading chipmusic on the now-defunct 8bitcollective back in 2011. Since his formal debut on Ubiktune last year (2013), Zack has released music on various albums, soundtracks, and compilations, while concurrently working on his dissertation [in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts (D.M.A.) at the University of Texas at Austin].

Zackery Wilson’s SNESQUE is the marriage of Super Nintendo soundfonts (i.e. collections of samples from original Super Nintendo video games) and modern-day audio production (i.e. EQ, delay, reverb, filters, etc.). For each original track, Zack adhered strictly to self imposed limitations: Each was created using only one soundfont(exclusive to each respective game), again, only taking liberties with audio production and some creative sample manipulation (i.e. pitch-shifting, time-stretching, etc.); the structure of each track limited to roughly a minute’s worth of music, looping once (in the tradition of standard video game “level” music) before fading out.

From progressive rock to jazz fusion, samba to swing, SNESQUE is a hodgepodge of musical styles, connected by the nostalgic sound of Super Nintendo video games and the familiarity of present-day audio production techniques.

SNESQUE will be released this September. Stay tuned!
