Hello everyone !
To give you a glimpse of the next update (which is not ready yet), our talented Remakost created a SoundCloud to share the music made for Stargate Network (more to come).
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.
Where can we listen to your musical compositions?
