Hope you'll all enjoy it, thanks for following us.
For those who don't know him, we would like to take this opportunity to talk more about our composer Remakost.
Who are you, Remakost ?
I'm Nicolas, I am 27 years old and I’ve been practicing music since I was six.
I followed music theory lessons and my first instrument was the clarinet.
I then joined an harmonic group. I later started playing guitar as well as making my first music composition for my rock band. However, with my origins tied in classical music studies and my passion for movie soundtracks. I took a turn toward orchestral composition using a computer software called Cubase.
So, what does your alias mean?
In fact it's a joining of "remake" and "OST", that mean remake a music based on the original : Remake - OST -> Remakost.
It is a blend between “remake” and “OST”. I originally chose this name with the intent to remake OSTs from games of the 80/90s and recreate them with an orchestra.
What are your inspirations to create your music?
My inspiration comes from John Williams’, Danny Elfman’s, Hans Zimmer’s, Murray Gold’s and obviously David Arnold’s OSTs. They are the composers I admire from my favorite shows and movies.
What made you want to join Stargate Network?
A friend of mine introduced me to Stargate Network saying : “Hey check it out! Some french folks are making a Stargate game. It’s awesome !”. I then downloaded and loved the game.
I ended up checking out the website and realised they were looking for a composer. I jumped on the occasion and sent my application. The team adopted me fairly quickly.
This allowed me to link two of my passions together : my favorite childhood show and creating musical score.
Has working on SGN brought you anything?
It allowed me to question my own work, my method and my adaptation to a musical classic multiple time. To me, music must bring emotions sublimating the entire piece.
An uneasy task but ô so important.
First , we regret that our first participation to this convention is also the last. Despite the efforts and sacrifices of the organizers, they are no longer able to offer us this event. We hope to see them again in a new adventure!
For us, this convention was really a great success. Several stalls about the Stargate theme were present at our side:
Stargate BCN, a spanish group about the Stargate franchise who expose a nice props collection and objects.
The Geeks du Sud, an association about the pop culture and very active about Stargate.
And GC Costuming, a talented dressmaker who makes costumes replicas including those of Stargate.
Many of you came to test the game and talk with us. Whether to ask questions or to congratulate us. It's always a great pleasure to see your eyes shine with the discovery or rediscovery of our game!
We had prepared a surprise (because yes we are like that at Stargate Network, we prepare surprises at the hotel until 2am in the morning ^^) and we can say that it has greatly pleased you! This surprise was to dive you literally into the game with a VR headset. Allowing you to discover the SGC, Abydos as well as Atlantis in development.
You have been blown away by the size of the sets, the Stargate and especially been dizzy with the view of the Atlantis city from the main tower balcony!
During these two days we were on the main stage for 15 minutes of presentation about our video game, followed by a 45 minutes lecture presenting the game’s history, behind the scenes of the development and the future of Stargate Network.
We had the pleasure to have the visit of the French Youtubers : Stardust and Astronogeek.
Stardust knew Stargate Network and was very excited about the VR experience.
Thanks to him for his support!!
We draw a very positive balance sheet about this convention. Special thanks to all Kamo Con volunteers who was amazing with us. Be sure: We will be back with pleasure.
You will find our pictures about the weekend on the Events page of the website.
