Ready to rock? Curse of the Spider King Music, Track 1




Christopher Hopper and I are pleased to announce the official release of The Lost Ones, our new single for the Curse of the Spider King. We batted around the idea of putting it on iTunes and numerous other online providers, but felt it was better simply to offer it to you directly through our websites. For free. If you'd like to donate a dollar for the song download, that's appreciated, but please don't feel obligated. This is a small 'thank you' to all those of you who have been so faithful to help promote our works through your enthusiasm.

If nothing else, please leave a comment to let us know you've downloaded the single.

I downloaded it. Good, but i really didn't understand what it had to do with the book untill like the last verse. Drums could have been better. I would love to come and do them for you! lol

I love the song! I just don't like the very very very beggining. Otherwise it is great! I listened to it all day long. I can't believe you guys wrote it! Are you going to write more soundtracks like this one? It was really really really good. I hope you guys do make another one and put it on this blog! by the way, I really like the new thng on the sidebar. Great job!
your humble servent,
Emma D.

Wow, as a songwriter-in-training I can appreciate all the work that went into this awesome track. It's really well done. Thank you so much for writing it! It's very inspiring.

Out of curiosity... do you guys by any chance use Logic Pro? At the moment, all I have to work with is my Korg keyboard and GarageBand... and since this is a serious interest of mine, I was just wondering what you used to record this.

Christopher Hopper said...

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Glad you're enjoying it. NateTheGreat: when our new studio is finished, I promise real drums. :) Evergreena: believe it or not, this was tracked with GarageBand! I still prefer tape (and then to another digital format like LP, PT, or Mackie HD) when we go into the studio, but as we're in transition, my Mac had to suffice. ch:

Christopher Hopper said...

Evergreena: I should also mention that most of the instrumentation was recorded using external mics and preamps. I use GB as a capture and time-keeping component. Good mics and their placement are key. ch:

i still can't figure out how to download it... do you need that quicktime 7 pro thing to do it?

Hey, that was kind of cool. Not bad for a studio record.Did Christopher do all the Drums, Bass, Electric Guitar, and Acoustic Guitar? If so, I tip my hat off to you.IT was a great mix! The verses were a great sound, but you should got really loud in the chorus and just belted it!!! haha.

Neat . . . I don't know a lot of (book)authors who've gotten someone to record their music (or authors who can sing and have the chops to do the technical aspect of it (mixing, recording, etc.) Nice job to both!
