Thread: AO music compilations

    AO music compilations

    I'm planning to make a new AO music compilation containing unpublished and/or forgotten pieces. I'll update this thread as this project will go forward. But for this to be quite complete, i first wanted to check what got released already.

    So far, i've managed to find only 2 out of 3 existing packages of AO Soundtracks on the web ; i gathered the 2 CDs of 2001 (= 25 different songs) but no way to get reach of an older "RK Music" collection consisting of 24 other tracks listed here by Phuriae : http://forums.anarchy-online.com/sho...undtrack-vol-1

    Could anyone have it by chance - and able to ship it to me ?
    Thanx a lot in advance for any help !

    (to be continued ...)

    Check my gallery as well, I might have them in media. I'd love to add all these pieces as well if they were originally never released.

    Unfortunately, you don't have what i'm missing musicwise on this (great) webspace. Thanx for proposing, though, and gratz for doing such tremendous job (...). If you like, i could upload what i got now (& in the future) in media/music, grant me (partial) access if you think so.

    Just a quick bump after a (busy) week of websearch & audio-edition to shape this complementary compilation(s) - yes, there's now a plural parenthesis, check below ...

    Started with 16 tracks [for approx 1 hour], the project grew a first time in the GridStream gardens : thanx to Gridfan's NCUs, many of the RKM lost collection could be identified and 4 more tracks [for about 20 more minutes] joined the initial project's playlist.

    But there's more after tonight !

    One of the 3 original AO music composers, Morten Sørlie (wich also composed for Dreamfall, e.g.) nicely brought now-unfindable (!) and even un(-never-ever-)released (!!) materials that will make the project grow even more !

    That also makes more work to be done, now possibly in coordination with original musician(s) to make sure the final result is totally loyal to what intended. And may be more musical rarities might appear from the darkness of years (read : dusty hard-drives ^_^) - who knows ?

    In extreme case, the project might spawn into 2 new compilations to complement the 2 existing CDs most of you know. That's still unsure at time of writing.

    But i'll indeed update this thread as the journey goes ...

    Few news of this week end :
    - the project playlist is, at the moment, of 23 tracks for about 1 h 47 minutes !
    - only 3 tracks are still missing from the old "RK Music" collection : "Backyard Jazz", "Party Down" & "Sneack Attack" ; hope anyone will help about these ...
    - another of the original music composer is about to check the project ; feedback (& may be more tracks, missing or new ?) highly expected
    - on the advice of GridStream's Gridfan, i've contact Ragnar Tørnquist in hope to have his feedback, eventually added to the compilation.

    Next update incoming ASAP.

    Quick report of the project state :
    - i'm glad to announce that all 3 original musicians are now involving into this ; they would provide feedback, eventually more lost or unreleased tracks ; i'm also corresponding with them & Funcom regarding the conditions of release (as proposed right under).
    - i'm now considering a double release consisting of both a FREE downloadable MP3 playlist (quality as constant 128 kbps, e.g.) + a PAID 4x CDs package (2 new release + 2 old re-edition) to cover about 4 hours of AO music.

    Nothing's decided for now, but it's shaping to become an exciting result
    Next update as soon there are some news ...

    Today, here are 3 really exciting news on the project :

    Volumes 3 & 4 in preparation were of 25 tracks, but there are few more incoming, so we might end up around 30ish pieces for nearly 2 unreleased musical hours. Beside this, CD quality sources got finally (re)discovered for all 4 volumes (including volumes 1 & 2 re-editions) ; an optimal sound enjoyment should be at our rendez-vous !

    So that's already 2 great news ; but there is 1 more, as promised : directly from its current CEO, Rui M.M. Casais, Funcom announced me they would support this initiative. I can't detail anything right now as many aspects are indeed still being examined & decided, but this augurs an ideal situation for the release

    To conclude this report, if i may add on a more personnal level : i wouldn't expect so much positiveness from everyone when i started this project few weeks ago. This is a thrill to see it happening, and very hard to have to wait (few) more time for sharing jewel vibes we're (still) gathering for AO community & fans ...

    ... so, see you soon for next informations - as they pop !

    Great to see it's coming together so well! Really looking forward to hearing those high quality tracks, especially the obscure and unreleased recordings. I for one would support and love to see a hardcopy format, but a digital collection would be fantastic either way. Amazing work!
