DAYUM!!-MUSIC THE ULTIMATE DRIVER FOR MY ART

Music is my drug that I will spend money to obtain if the sound is right, I always seek out the most interesting music to help propel my art and the story that I choose to draw, write or direct. I have come across many new composers of music. Today I will share some of the creators I feel worth to get my money, some or many have worked on things I have a connection to from my youth, such as music from a game or animation. Most will be scores so that simply means no vocals or minimal vocals. I may throw in a few with vocals at the end but we shall see. The first I have to point out is the most recent addition to my list is Sam Dillard his website has his collection of awesomeness. http://samostudios.tumblr.com/.
I will simply list the rest with a small reason why i purchased their album with a link to their respective websites.

Bad-Dudes, they created a Chrono Trigger album which sounded awesome, totally sold after that. Nothing else to add well maybe the fact that I saw their music on a retrogame website. http://baddudesmusic.com/#discography

M83 wow, how can I describe this talent, he had all original music which was totally mesmerizing. I found his music by accident nine or so years ago all I know is I had it saved in my youtube favorites and playlist and several years ago I simply wanted to find out who was the artist who did the music. Unfortunately I could not pin point the artist as the music could not be detected by shizaam which was weird either way I was able to track him down the song in question was “Lower your eyelids to die with the sun”-featured in this skateboard vid.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZIk5YervWU I was totally sold and tracked down all his albums and bought everyone. If you want more on them check here. Oh and he did music for Oblivion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mkUp1V3ys0

Blake Robinson another talent that blew me away with what he did to the chrono trigger symphony collection. Check out his websites http://blakerobinson.co.uk/ and http://syntheticorchestra.com/ I was in love when I found his music. Not much else to say on that.

Richie Branson (born Marcus Brown II) His music was a take to a different level and I actually enjoyed it when not working as too much vocals keep mind really busy. http://richiebranson.com/

Disasterpiece http://disasterpeace.com/ This creator created some of the music for most of the indy games I love Hyper Light Drifter to name a few. Check him out.

The last I will mention is Fela Kuti, I came across Fela’s music through Pandora and I was not aware of this Man. Once I did my research I realized he was an amazing dude with many faults. I won’t get into much detail if you need more simply read up here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fela_Kuti

These clusters are ones that I could relax to, MGMT, Lumineers,Jonsi,Devotchka, The Neighbourhood and Of monsters and men. there are many more but these are the ones I can go back to and get some meaningful work plus they are less known well except for the Lumineers I am not sure how well know is MGMT.

Notable mentions
Bjork
Clint Mansell– The Fountain OST
Florence and the Machines
Imagine Dragons

DAYUM!!–Cannon Busters: The Animated Pilot Official Trailer

canon-buster

So CannonBusters which seems synonymous to GunBuster a classic animation series but no relation dropped early this month which would be July 8th 2016. It was an amazing short by the Cannon Buster team – Lesean Thomas, Thomas Romain and the whole Satellite gang along with any other partner company and Artist that too part.
The music and animation blended beautifully, it had a vibe that simply screamed I wanted this damn animation made into a series.

Getting to the meat I am very elated that I supported the kickstarter. Was it what I expected and more? In actuality, I was unsure what to expect as I was not sure if the creator was aiming to follow what he started in comic which I also own. The comic as I briefly recall was most definitely a different take thus far but I am excited to see where they may go with this slight shift, again I am unsure if that was the original course, the creator can do whatever he feels. As for the look and feel this was a vibrant setting, not much is shown in terms of scale as this simply was the opening pilot or half a pilot as I would assume as it was only 15 minutes. Here is to hoping that this publicity affords them the greenlight to secure funding, as it does cost a great deal to produce this level of animation. If possible I would hope it was picked up by netflix as I have a love for how netflix works, then again this feeling is from a consumers point of view and not as a creator. Overall I would hope that the creators are benefiting from such a union.
