Numerous updates! [November 4, 2009]
« on: November 04, 2009, 12:30:56 AM »
Hiya everyone! Just some announcements to bring everything up to date:

1. Our first Freebird Podcast is now out.
2. "And So She Waits" - a song with lyrics based on the story of Do You Remember My Lullaby.
3. Laura Shigihara's game, "Melolune" is released.
-----------------

1. Freebird Podcast:
 :hatsale!:
Click HERE.


2. New vocal song.
If you remember our title "Do You Remember My Lullaby" released last Christmas, then this may bring back some memories. It's called "And So She Waits (Her Lullaby)", and it is my full lengthed song with lyrics (almost 6 minutes long, making up for all my other short songs! :P)

Click HERE
to listen (or click image).


Spoiler: If the image above does not load, here're the lyrics in text form:  • show

Snow falls through the night sky
Descend upon a humble home
Inside its walls sits a silent girl
Alongside lies an old wooden box

And so she stares
And so she sighs
And so she waits

She told herself she will be strong somehow
She told herself she is just wrong again
Snow falls from the rooftops
She eagerly glances at the door


The room dims as a candle dies
Still lit enough to see her face
She opens the box and the music rings
She frowns and hums along

And still she stares
And still she sighs
And still she waits

Remembering to wish upon tonight
Remembering that only song he loved
She gracefully stood at the window
She held her hands up to the sky

And so she sang
Her lullaby
Into the night

***

And so she waits
And so she waits
And so she waits

She told her self she'd wait 'til dawn arises
She told her self it won't be long from now
She told her self that she is certain
She told her self that she has faith

Oooooooo
Oooooooo, ooh
Oooooooh
She told herself that she is strong


But still she waits
And still she waits
And still she waits..




3. RPG Release
"Melolune", a RPG by Laura Shigihara (singer of Drift), is now available for download. It offers fantastic music, delicate graphics and tons adorableness.

Click HERE to go to her game's topic (or click the image).


---------------

Hope ya guys enjoy the contents in this update!  :reivsmile: I'll try to get the combined 1-11 Quintessence package out in the near future. Cheers~

P.S. The forum is now night-themed! If you don't see any changes, click Refresh or CTRL+R should make it appear.

Thanks guys. c: Hope ya enjoy. The song still needs to be fixed up a bit in the future - some words are mispronounced, and I want to add some additional percussion to the chorus parts.

I'm going to play Laura's game. I seriously liked her game. (I played it before, the game was posted in the same board).

I love the night design, it looks perfect, really.  :reivsmile:

And So She Waits is a beautiful song. The style is different from all you did before. I really loved how you included the Lullaby theme (and teh instrumental part / background music was done quite well, too). And you have a great singing voice, I didn't realize before that you have such a "strong" voice.  This is especially noticable at the beginning of each stanza.

I also like the lyrics. They tell the story of Lullaby very well and I just decided to replay it today (I can't wait any longer). Great work, Kan.  :)

But Kite still bests And So She Waits.


Laura Shigihara sure has an intersting and beautiful, somehow cute style of mapping. I'll give the game a try. :~

About the song, I suggest that you find a duet. Maybe it might work well.

Lol, Stardale, that's exactly what I said to Reives. xD
Seems like it wasn't a bad idea after all... I'm still waiting for his reply, though. ^^

The song was excellent:Nice music, beautiful lyrics, and excellent singing. It really makes me want to try Do You Remember My Lullaby, since I've only played Quintessence so far.  And yeah, the night theme is also nice. I may try Melolune eventually, though likely not for awhile.

I feel like I'm the only one who wasn't moved by that song. :-X

Rayen: you shouldn't think that as a problem. Everyone's different. :)

Well, I wasn't "moved". I think it was a great song, but I didn't exactly found it moving.

Thanks for listening and the feedback everyone. :reivsmile:

Does the melody sound a bit boring to anyone, by the way? I can't help but feel that it's a little dull in style.
