Tales of the Forgotten is officially HERE!
Hello, everyone! We are Dylan C. Jones and Bill Piyatut H., and we would like to welcome you to Tales of the Forgotten! An immersive experience of epic music, beautiful illustration, and captivating story coming to Kickstarter in January 2016! We've been hard at work behind the scenes for awhile and are excited to finally bring to light the teaser trailer for the project.
What is Tales of the Forgotten you might ask? To put it briefly, TOTF is an audiovisual collaboration project between us (the two composers) along with multiple artists and a writer to bring a unique experience to the table. What originally started as a small music collaboration project in 2014 has resurfaced as something much bigger!
With both of us studying music in school and spending a lot of time together, there has always been an urge to collaborate. Around a year ago we started to pursue that endeavor, passing ideas back and forth for a month or two before getting caught up in other business and pushing it aside. Fast-forward to two months ago. The idea resurfaces, but this time, we want to make this is a project about more than just music. As film composers we strive for a great story, an external inspiration for our music that gives it life. We started developing ideas which turned into plotlines and characters; all of which are slowly forging a world that we have become passionate about. But music didn’t seem like it would be enough to really show everyone the imagery we had in mind. In order to bring our visions to life and show you the world we are building, we have harnessed the amazing talent of artists and a writer that are just as motivated about TOTF as we are!
We believe that combining these art forms of music, illustration, and narrative will allow anyone to find interest in our story, whether you love listening, browsing, reading, or any combination of the three! Our CD will provide you with a beautiful soundtrack to appease your ears, and our short novel will give a sweet dose of imagery and story that you can be sure you will want to wrap your brain around!
This is just a taste of what's to come, so stay connected with us on social media to keep up to date with the project until we launch the Kickstarter in January!
