A soundtrack to Stephen King's The Dark Tower Books 1-3

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I've recently finished a diploma course on Audio Engineering and Post Production in Manchester. For my final piece I was asked to record, mix and master an album of my choice, be it myself or other musicians.

I decided to write the entire thing myself due to being in bands for many years and knowing the nature of herding musicians to important recording sessions. I think this worked in my favour.

It was mid-course that I had decided that it was soundtracks and composing that I wanted to get into, so I decided why not kill two birds with one stone and get working on my first soundtrack piece so I can use it after I graduate. At the time I had just been introduced to The Dark Tower series by Stephen King and was pretty hooked straight away. It felt pretty natural to want to try and compose music to something which was so fresh in my mind.

I've uploaded the album to soundcloud and would love to hear feedback from anyone who has read the books or anyone who just loves soundtrack work in general.

Cheers!

Great to finally hear the finished product from your exodus into music production. Never read the books but definitely enjoyed your music for them. Good stuff mate.

I'm currently in the process of creating a showreel and happened to come across a track for this album which I never released. The reason being the fact that I wanted to arrange a full choir to do the vocal chores but I never got around to it so scrapped it. Figured it was good enough to stick on the album anyway! So 3 years later i'm adding a final track to this little project of mine. 

 

Hope you enjoy.
