The Sonic Stadium is proud to present it’s first official community release project – The Sonic Stadium Music Album 2011.
Assembled in a span of two months, 16 budding musicians on the SSMB banded together in an effort to bring out the ideas and concepts of our creative community at TSS. What was once a mere collaborative mini-album with a 15-track estimate, as envisioned by forum member and project leader VizardJeffhog, grew into an unmediated storm of tracks and tunes, something we hope will be the first of the many future community-driven projects to follow at TSS.
With 45 tracks, the album spans 4 discs with roughly 2 and a half hours of remixed Sonic music from games both well known and obscure – including some original Sonic-inspired tracks! Covering a wide variety of acoustic, electronic, rocking and atmospheric music, each composer on this album has done their best to bring out their respective visions of what the Sonic series has often been recognized and defined by – it’s music.
The Staff of this project would like to extend it’s special thanks to Ian Bennett for joining in on the project and expanding it by creating the feature site hosting the album. The Staff would also like to thank BlitzChris for doing a pre-release stream as part of SEGASonic: Radio’s final show prior to their upcoming reboot. Finally, we thank all the artists and musicians who helped contribute into making the album what it is today. It has been one wonderful experience.
As this big feat is reaching the end of it’s long and exciting production, what’s next?
We can formally announce that we’re in the plans of assembling an even bigger and better album for 2012.
While we won’t dwell into the details of this future project, starting today we will be accepting contributions from other fans who wish to have their works featured for what we’re hoping can become a bigger and better album. If you are interested in being a part of this, keep an eye out on the SSMB and contact the project leader, VizardJeffhog, for album submissions and details.
For the fans, by a bunch of other fans, we have all enjoyed working this album, and we sincerely hope you enjoy listening to the album just as much as we had making it!
