‘Vampires Dawn 3: The Crimson Realm’ Prototype Released (Featuring My Music)

I have been collaborating with German video game designer Alexander Koch — more well known under his pseudonym Marlex — and his video game company Dawnatic Games in the past and contributed music to the games Vampires Dawn II, Elemental Mage, Flower Power Gecko and Battle Towers.

I’m very happy to announce that after years of inactivity and uncertainty concerning the Vampires Dawn franchise, Marlex has released a prototype / playable teaser of the long-awaited sequel Vampires Dawn 3: The Crimson Realm, of which I wrote the title track.

You may see his announcement and download the prototype here (German language only):

While the details of my involvement into this project are still not set in stone, I’m positive the title music will not be the only track I contribute to VD3 and hope you’re as excited about the project as I am!

Free music section now live!

There were some obsolete tunes that sadly never found their way into a project. Rather than gathering proverbial dust on my hard drive, I’ve uploaded them on this homepage.

The best thing is: you may use these tracks for your (non-commercial) projects! Just head to my free music page for more information.

I also redesigned my Blake Inc. page. You should have a more visually appealing view (including thumbnails) of the videos now. The broken links should be fixed, too!

Music Tutorials & Facebook Page

As the homepage is nearing it’s completion, there’s a new section of the page called music tutorials. There, I will share some of the knowledge I’ve gained over the years, so you don’t have to figure things out for yourself. 🙂

The first tutorial, called How to Arrange for Instruments You Don’t Play is already online. If that’s something you’d be interested in it’d be super awesome if you gave it a read.

Other than that, I have finally gotten around to creating a Facebook page for myself. I’d really appreciate a like. Thanks a ton!

Aphelion Soundtrack Available for Streaming!

As some of you may know, I worked with Texas-based video game developer Lunatic Studios from 2009 to 2010, contributing the soundtrack to their turn-based role-playing games Aphelion: Graves of Earth and Aphelion: Wings of Omega.

Sadly, the games weren’t a huge success and so the 35 tunes I wrote had been gathering dust on my hard-drive.

But no more! I have finally gotten around to re-mastering the songs. They are now available for streaming in YouTube and Soundcloud. I’d really appreciate it if you checked them out and let me know what you think. 🙂

Other than that, the homepage is finally getting somewhere. But I’ll give you an update on that later.

A Fresh Start

After a good eight years of absence, I finally have another website entirely dedicated to my projects and — by extension — myself.

Over the course of the next weeks I will try to add plenty of new content. But for the time being, this website is strictly work in progress. Feel free to comment or get in touch with me.
