Regarding this year’s PMC event, Ashley Irwin, President of the Society of Composers and Lyricists, said, “Composers are the foundation of production music, so we were thrilled when the PMA decided to expand its membership to include them, since many of our members rely on production music as an integral part of their livelihood. In light of this, the SCL created a Production Music Committee chaired by long time SCL Board member Benoit Grey, as a way of liaising, on behalf of our members, with the PMA and the production music community. The panel being presented at the conference, which Benoit will moderate, is one of many initiatives we are planning whereby the PMA and the SCL collaborate to give composers the tools and information they need to navigate their way in the production music business.” Please see:https://www.thescl.com/about

New release from Julius Dobos

JULIUS DOBOS, AWARD-WINNING ELECTRONIC MUSIC

AND FILMSCORE COMPOSER,

RELEASES NEW CONCEPT ALBUM: “FORGOTTEN FUTURE: W1,”

FEATURING UNIQUE ELECTRONIC MUSIC


julSunnyvale, CA, July 21, 2015 – Julius Dobos, an award-winning, platinum-album composer mostly known for his film-scores and electronic musical works, has released the first piece of a unique psybient electronic music project, under the moniker forgotten future.

 

 

Entitledff forgotten future: W1, the new album is the first installment of a 4-piece concept series, the framework of a musical and ideological endeavor, which aims to take the listener through Universal themes centered around four “big questions”: human existence, time, space, and purpose. Far form being dogmatic, forgotten future: W1 offers an environment of alternative realism for the listener to explore their “future memories” in, and find their personal answers.
The original concept work borrows elements both from current science and ancient belief systems, but also deeply crosses into metaphysics. Comprised of complex rhythmic patterns, haunting melodies, monumental electronic instrumentation, dynamic structures, cutting edge sound design and organic textures of electronic soundscapes, the music evokes strong emotions and memories, sending its listeners on a 15-track psybient journey through time, space and new dimensions. To preview select clips from the new album, please see
cogDobos also spends time as a Distinguished Lecturer in Residence within the Digital Audio Technology program at Silicon Valley’s Cogswell College.

 

“Julius Dobos’ ‘Forgotten Future’ is a terrific album containing truly beautiful music. We are very fortunate to have such a creative artist of this caliber in our midst,” said Timothy W. Duncan, Professor and Director of the college’s Digital Audio Technology program.
Said Dobos, “Forgotten Future: W1 is the story of a journey – one of multiversal scale, beyond the boundaries of time and through seven dimensions. It is about the journey we will all take one day. We are frightened of the unknown, yet it feels so familiar… it feels like we have been in this environment before. This trip is a curious and humbling experience, a galactic travel on a forgotten road that takes us to a mysterious destination, which road seems like… we must have traveled it before. Upon returning from our voyage, we only bring the distant memories of feelings with us… forgetting the experience – which we will re-live again, in the future.”


Forgotten future: W1
took Dobos five years to conceptualize, compose music and design sounds for – every bit of audio heard on the album is built from the ground up. Vincent Villuis of the genre-leading Ultimae label and dark-ambient pioneer Robert Rich also contributed to the production in the mastering phase. According to Dobos, an important goal was to create a long-term listening experience with music that features dozens of (almost) hidden layers – each with a meaning or emotion attached to it. “If even after the seventeenth listen you are still discovering new elements, cool little details that might change your interpretation of the concept, I will feel I was successful” – said the composer.


ABOUT JULIUS DOBOS:

The Hungarian-born Dobos started his piano studies at age five and was composing music at nine. After combining his studies in music production, audio engineering and composition, he scored art films, feature movies, designed soundscapes for installations, released seven albums and worked on projects such as the DragonBall Z soundtracks, produced music for use in national television shows and movies such as Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Mallcop and Zookeeper.
Between his work as forgotten future and composing music for use in film, Dobos also shares his production experience with the audio professionals of the future. As a Distinguished Lecturer in residence at Cogswell Polytechnical College of Silicon Valley, an educational institution offering a unique curriculum fusing Digital Art, Engineering and Entrepreneurship, he teaches music production and sound design courses. He also leads an original audio- and music production program, MediaWorks, in which students have worked with such real-life clients as Panasonic or TEDx. In 2012, Dobos moved his cutting-edge electronic music production center, Studio CS, to Cogswell’s campus, providing students access to his collection of unique sound synthesis tools and expertise.


“FORGOTTEN FUTURE: W1” INFO:

The new album is now available via all major outlets both as a digital download, a 24-bit studio master, and as a premium digipak edition CD complete with a 20-page booklet featuring the original work of three European digital painters.

The PMA has assembled an independent group of industry professionals, culled from executives working within TV networks, ad agencies, promo departments, trailer companies, and licensing organizations, to facilitate the submissions, judging, and final selection of Mark Awards winners.

Regarding Hollywood’s newest awards event, Mr. Williams said, “Production music has long been the sonic lifeblood of so many audiovisual productions, ranging from television programs to promotional campaigns to major theatrical releases. With its proliferation across the gamut of media productions and distribution channels, companies responsible for the contribution of production music to the creative process have never before had their own awards event. These people and companies are truly worthy of long-overdue recognition – thus the establishment of the Mark Awards.”

The first Mark Awards event will be held concurrently with the PMA’s Second Annual Production Music Conference (PMC,) which will also be held on Sept. 9th at the Directors Guild of America headquarters in Los Angeles. That event runs from 8 AM to 7PM. For more information about the PMC, please visit: http://pmamusic.com/pmc-schedule-announced/
