Chroniques de l’Autre Monde

What is “Chroniques de l’Autre Monde”?

“Chroniques de l’Autre Monde” (“Chronicles of the Other World” in English) is a series of 3 musical albums gathering pieces I composed to illustrate my novel “Chronicles of Galadria”. It’s basically the book’s soundtrack, although the music can be (and is usually) enjoyed as is and even used in other projects – see “Derivative Work” (bottom of the page).

If you’re looking for my other albums (tailor-made compositions for various projects), go here!

Chroniques de l’Autre Monde are the reason why I began composing music. If you’d like to know more about this (including why I picked this strange title rather than “Chronicles of Galadria – Original Soundtrack” or something similar) and about my musical work in general, feel free to check The Backstage!

My very first album.
Most pieces were created on Big Boss first, before I reworked them with Cubase SX3: much better virtual instruments mostly, along with a some bits heavily modified.
However my lack of knowledge at the time in both sound engineering et music composition are obvious: average sound quality, music with very basic structures, use of the same few instruments…
Yet the album did find its audience and allowed for my work to be discovered, which in turn led some people to contacting me to work together.

Every piece in this album were composed with Cubase SX3 along with new virtual instruments I had obtained on purpose.
The experience accumulated in both music composition and sound engineering allowed me to create more advanced musical structures, to use a greater variety of instruments, to improve the overall power level and, all in all, to deliver much higher quality.
This album turned out to be rather successful, especially the track “Adieu” (Farewell) which is often quoted as my best piece and has gathered dozens of thousands of views on YouTube along with various fan-made covers.

Last album in the series (despite its name!). Every track but one are remakes from the original 2008 Chroniques de l’Autre Monde album.
After “Chroniques de l’Autre Monde II” it became clear that there was a gap between the quality of the very first album and its sequel, and I decided to fix this. I put into this project everything I had learned throughout the years so that the end result would match my vision, without having to compromise because of a lack of knowledge or tools. Yet it took me 3 years to complete this album, because of new priorities, ideas and projects. It demanded a lot of work and I was no longer sure I truly wanted to invest the time and energy needed. In the end though, I chose to complete it before leaving music composition behind me… for the time being.
