It's been a while since my last update.
THE CHRONICLES OF SPELLBORN
For the past five years I have been working (slaving?) away on a project called The Chronicles of Spellborn, a MMORPG for the PC. If you are not familiar with the term, it's a type of game where many people play in the same (persistent) world at the same time, competing with and helping each other. It has a great background story and you get to relive the entire history of the world so to speak, through so-called quests.
If you are interested in my sound work for that, it's a free download (www.tcos.com
). Unfortunately, the company that employed everyone went bankrupt so basically my work for the game is over. The game itself will live on and as it contains well over 15 hours of ambiences there's quite a chunk of my work to be found. It was quite interesting to be able to create moods, and have players wander through them, compared to an album where time (passing) governs what you hear.
Working on Spellborn proved far more time consuming than I would have thought, even though it's not commercially successful (the reviews where great) it's something to be proud of.
A video of work for the game can be found here:http://www.matthewflorianz.com/gamedeveloper/matthew_florianz__sound__hawksmouth_ambiences.html

NEW MUSIC :: TAUERN
You might have already read about the six new tracks I have made available for free. The can be played back with the integrated music player on the myspace page.http://www.myspace.com/matthewflorianz
And since I touched upon the subject of Iphone, BLOOM is an application you should buy immediately if you have not yet done so.
Hope you're well,
