about

This is the original soundtrack for Solace, a student game project I did in my senior year of my undergraduate. Link to game and to the audio files of the narration TBA.

I've always seen two types of projects out there. There's the type of projects that I can take as long as I want on, and then there's the type of project that's fueled by a deadline.

Solace started out as a student game project to be an introductory to my fictional world - Alkazure. In this story, I allowed a character who won't be shining much in the future shine - Abraham. He's going through with seven friends to deliver a peace treaty and find some rude awakenings.

I ended up being the only person able to work on the game itself. I came to a sad conclusion - Only the prototype would be able to be finished. My skills were not at the point where I would have liked them to be.

We quickly got word that our college was closing - When we got word, my peers in the Music and Computer Information System departments swooped in to help me make sure this project would at least have something to show before I left the building.

In reaction to this, they helped the touches that crafted not only a soundtrack and bringing life to the story and prototype, but letting one door (our college) close and letting another door (Alkazure as a world) open. My hope is to release something Alkazure related every year until I get around to releasing my magnum opus.

Until then, we leave you with this soundtrack where we cover a broad amount of topics - Hatred forever, death, children, purpose, pondering, conflicts, memories, and more into an hour long epic. I hope you enjoy. Script that we used as a draft included as a file to show my appreciation.

"When an empire falls
A new one will be rebuilt
That's how it'll be,
That's how it's always been"

Track Name: For Honor
The heroes start in their journey from one region of Alkazure to another,
How will it end?
Track Name: Journey to Nowhere
Hey,
journey's aren't easy to make
Especially when it's across these isles
But,
I'm sure this journey won't be long
No two people could fight forever,
Right?
Someone
Told me that
Long time ago
Can't quite remember who
I reckon' they have a nice singing voice
They could hum me a nice tune
This journey will be started for greater purposes
After-all
The long lasting question
Who would want to fight forever?
Track Name: Comfort
We find comfort
In tales from our past
An old man is shaking
Shaking his last

I've searched the rivers
and streets for days,
Striding in faith
To find our own ways

Crusades
On mountain tops
In hopes we'd find
A beating heart
Crusades
On mountain tops
In fear that we'd
Find none

I've searched in valleys,
Gazed at the stars
Just to find peace
Deep in our thoughts

Crusades
On mountain tops
In hopes we'd find
A beating heart
Together through
The mountain top
In solace now
We'd all find none

I've searched in valleys,
Gazed at the stars
Just to find peace
Deep in our thoughts
Track Name: Memories
Grasping at the memories that I can't seem to get,
Grasping at the thoughts that I have burrowed

Grasping at the memories that I can't seem to get,
Grasping at the thoughts that I have burrowed

Dug them so far
Groundhogs could starve
In the deepest caves
Where no one can find me

They can't be found
They can't be found
In me
Track Name: Harbinger & Harvesting
When the reaper comes,
For the taking at dawn,
The harvest sets its tusks
At dusk,

When the ashes of this body burn,
A new one will be born,
Another to be reaped,
Another to be sewn

One day
We will all be healed
Track Name: Where
Where do we go?
Do we seek the light?
Do we see the future?
Are our eyes blinded?

One day we will find out what we want
One day we will find out what we need
Until then,
We wait for our final days
Track Name: Resurrecting Tides
Corruption seeks,
The rivers burn,
The waves toss,
the tides turn

But one day,
we'll set free / we'll be free

I see people,
They want shelter
They carve out cards
To talk with each other

But if two people can't fight forever
Why do ideas have to?
Track Name: Kingdom's Engraved
I see others,
Lying in the grass

Little do they know,
It won't be this peaceful
When I get back

Home,
It's where I'm safe,
Not where I live

When an empire falls
A new one will be built on top of it
That's how it's been
That's how it'll always be

I see how it goes,
I see how it begins

One land's mistake
Leads to another man's death

Wars started,
Over pointless disputes
Just for profit
with Mindless violence

When an empire falls,
A new one will be rebuilt
That's how it's been,
That's how it'll always be,

Our intentions to rule
Overpower our want to learn

The only way we'll win
Is when we all surrender

When an empire falls,
A new one will be rebuilt
That's how it's been,

When an empire falls,
A new one will be rebuilt
That's how it's been,
That's how it'll always be
Track Name: What They Sent
That's all we have left in Craftsion for the day.
Thank you.
