Stick two wonderfully talented people together and what do you get? A winning combination!
When I was mastering this track for Ryo and Aeralie I had no idea what the video side of it was so it is fantastic to now see the music to picture. Even better that the track also won the Sonokinetic competition.
We conclude our annual composing competition with the proud announcement of the winning scores for the original feature “Brothers of Honor”.
With all of the votes counted, the winners are: Ryo ishido & Aeralie Brighton’s score with Grosso, Vivace, Minimal and Da Capo in action. And Runner-up is Matthew L. Fisher’s score with Vivace & Minimal in action. Congratulations! Thank you all for competing this year…
This news is even more exciting for singer Aeralie as she is just now venturing into the composing world.
It is always a pleasure to work with the talented musician and composer Ryo Ishido and Gemini is yet another musical gem that I’ve loved being part of.
Gemini is the first track to be released from The Zodiac Chronicles from the music duo that is Ryo and Aeralie Brighton. Those of you who don’t already know of Aeralie (why not?) will enjoy her delicious vocals on this track!
Also performing are Alex Pfeffer with his incredible guitar playing and Armen Ksajikian for his stunning cello lines.
As well as handling all the musical production of this track Ryo is also an extremely gifted graphic designer as you can see by the artwork for this track.
Have a listen to Gemini below and see what you think. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of this album!
This is the video for Raven by Ryo Ishido which I had the pleasure of mastering. The skillful editing is by Rain Ventsel.
