Yogurt Original Image Soundtrack Vol.2
After a successful run with my first album, I didn’t quite want to call it quits just yet. There are a lot of sounds out there, and I’m always finding new instruments and reasons for inspiration. I’ve realized that one image soundtrack wasn’t enough to really paint all the moments in my comic series. I’d like to announce the second volume of the Yogurt Original Image Soundtrack!
Just like the first album, I hope to have a wide variety of instrumental background music produced and lined up for this new album. In addition, I will also be producing more character-specific instrumentals, which I hope will help paint characters a little more than what you can read in the comics. Regrettably this time around, I will not have the luxury of having a second composer to work together with. Instead, I will be delivering each and every piece in this album to the best of my abilities.
Yogurt Original Image Soundtrack
A long awaited project will finally be taking off! In collaboration with the professional composer, Paul Cecchetti, I will be working to produce an instrumental soundtrack inspired by none other than the Yogurt Short Comics series! Comprising mainly of piano compositions, soft music, and various contemporary instrumentals delivered by both myself and Paul Cecchetti, we hope to compile an album that will capture the atmosphere of the comic series and feelings of the characters. Everything from the sentimental moments of Yogurt, to the light-hearted moments of when she’s with her friends.
For several years, I’ve been a pretty big fan of all sorts of instrumental soundtrack music. Having picked up piano myself, I’ve learned to compose several pieces that would eventually lead towards the beginning of a different kind of project: An image soundtrack. When people think of soundtracks, they think of music for movies, animations, TV shows, or even radio shows. However, soundtracks do exist for books and even comics, and as someone who really enjoys music, I want my readers to experience something that I wouldn’t be able to do by just writing and drawing comics.
Battle Piece (YogurtM Arrange)
Oops, indeed. After wanting to make an RPG battle theme to add to the Yogurt Original Image Soundtrack, I went a tad bit over board and made the piece sound far too “epic”, so to speak. While it won’t match up to more epic pieces out there, I figured it was worth sharing anyways. You can pretend that Yogurt and her friends are playing some RPG or D&D if you’d like.
Time To Fly (YogurtM Arrange)
A simple airy piece mixing up a bit of strings, airy guitars, and drums. It kind of gives off a post-rock feeling. I’ve borrowed a short melody segment from one of the pieces in the Yogurt OST, but by all means, I don’t intend to have this piece on the soundtrack. It’s pretty cool, though.
Lost Wings (YogurtM Arrange)
With the Yogurt Soundtrack completed, I’ve been messing around with making pieces that aren’t part of the Yogurt series. Ambient and Post-rock music can sometimes have a profound effect on me. It doesn’t try to be overly complex, but the texture in the sounds can paint large canvases in my mind. This is a piece where I’ve attempted to do just that. Airy pianos, guitars, strings, and subtle surreal sounds that paint a soundscape.
