Update #11

The People Who Listened... to Sweet Jams.

7 comments

Due to an unfortunate intersection of events, our musician Julian has spent the entirety of our Kickstarter campaign held hostage in Singapore. However, based on the backdrop of the video he just sent our way, it looks like it's not all bad. On the other hand, the lighting of the video taken with his iPad makes him look like an anonymous whistle-blower on a nightly news exposé. Ominous indeed.

The video quality not withstanding, Julian has some insight into his process when creating music for the strange, exotic beast that is Unwritten. Once you're done watching a fuzzy, Julian-shaped silhouette tell you about the music, why not listen to a whole track of the music for yourself? You just might find it attached to this update.

      As an avid gamer, the music sounds absolutely awesome! Very powerful indeed. I'm very excited to play the game after listening. Have you spent time in Asia?

      I noticed that when I looked at the update on my iPad the music embed didn't show up, but all the browsers on my PC loaded it fine. It's possible that it's an issue with Kickstarter and Safari for iOS.

      @Irene Kokoshko It's the black line just under the video. Maybe you confused it with the video itself.

      Great music ! :)
      For me, it's about a battle, an epic and dangerous battle
      or perhaps a manifestation of the God ? :)

      Hey guys, this may be a silly question but am I the only one who can't a see to the track? :/

      Love that you're going to emphasize the oral nature of storytelling in the music and that track sounds epic indeed.

      That's some talking shadows :)

      Epic tundra music by the way. I feel the wind on my nose :)
