The aim of the project is to release Paul Anthony Romero’s album and scorebook with the Heroes of Might and Magic game series soundtrack, recorded during the composer’s only piano concert in Torun, Poland during the 13th Tofifest International Film Festival on October 24, 2015.
The project is unique on the global scale, as no one before decided to record or release music by Paul Anthony Romero. Our plan is to release the album digitally (in a choice of mp3 or FLAC), on CD and also on vinyl.
We know how much gamers value the work of Paul Anthony Romero, as it inspired many people to start learning to play the piano. That's why we have decided to publish a scorebook from the Heroes of Might and Magic series that were performed at the Torun concert. This will be the first book release of this sort, authorised by the composer himself.
The event has drawn a crowd of Paul Anthony Romero from all over Europe. To commemorate that magical evening and share it also with those who could not attend it, along with the composer we decided to release an album with the recording of the concert that was captured thanks to the work of professional sound engineers in RATstudios AUDIO. The help and support of you - the fans, will be invaluable to us, bringing all of us closer to success.
Paul Anthony Romero
In 1965, a child named Paul Anthony Romero was born in Southern California. Being a curious boy, he would always keep his eyes open for anything that could catch his attention. In the Romero house, there was one object towards which he grew a particular liking - a piano that his parents bought as a living room decoration. He fell in love with the instrument instantly. Inquisitive as he was at this young age, he pressed one of the keys and… it made a sound! At the age of nine, Paul started to attend music lessons. The beginnings were tough - it was like learning a whole new vocabulary from scratch. After six years of demanding work, he finally started playing concerts. When he was 20, there came a sudden break in his music career. As he says, no one wanted him anymore. It became impossible for Paul to book a venue and, as a result, make a living by playing piano. In 1995, at a friend’s party, he met Rob King, who knew that he used to be a musician. One thing led to another and Paul signed a contract to write 20 minutes of music for a video game called Heroes of Might and Magic. This marked the beginning of Paul’s fabulous journey with the Might and Magic game series.
