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.

Audiomachine releases MAGNUS – new epic music public album

mThe trailer music company Audiomachine has released their next public album Magnus. Composed by Paul Dinletir, Kevin Rix, Ivan Torrent, Danail Gatz and Mark Petrie, this work contains twenty-four tracks. Some are tracks compiled from prior industry music releases, so it may be sort of a reminder for the keen epic music collectivist.

That aside, let me say that Wars of Faith by Ivan Torrent is certainly an emotional and powerful track, while bearing the trademark signatures of Audiomachine.

You can purchase this album below:

Meet Composer Marcelo Zarvos in TMV interview!

ffd 

One of the nice things about epic music is that it doesn’t necessarily limit itself to strictly trailer music. Along with their respective composers, film soundtracks are also an integral aspect as well and help to give one a more rounded view of this field.  Today, we’ll center on a composer in particular.

He is a noted film composer for TV and film that has scored The Affair and also an upcoming television series Extant from director Steven Spielberg. The music has been well received and even the soundtrack for The Affair is up for Emmy consideration!

His name? Marcelo Zarvos and he’s our featured composer in this interview with TMV.

What piqued your interest in becoming a composer?

I think I was always attracted to both storytelling and music. Books and movies were my childhood obsession and when I started playing piano the first few pieces I learned were from scores. Most notably The Sting and Blade Runner. Other films that marked me were Spielberg’s great 70’s movies (and their scores) as well as a lot of horror scores such as The Omen and The Shining.

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I started working very early and I believe on my first gigs playing piano and keyboards I was barely 14 years old. Film scoring has always been a passion and after graduating from Music School at Cal Arts I moved to NYC to pursue my composing career. My first breaks in film came through working in indie films in New York such as Kissing Jessica Stein and studio films like The Door in the Floor.

I understand that you’re all in as far as composing the music for Extant and the Affair. How’s the work going?

It’s great! Both shows are so different and so amazing in their own way. The Affair is very internal and psychological while Extant is a really exciting sci-fi thriller. The scores couldn’t be more different but interestingly the idea of what constitutes a family comes up in both shows often, but with wildly different takes.

 

Steven Spielberg is a celebrated film director and producer in Hollywood. When making the score, do you ever feel any sort of pressure to, say make the score extra special?

100%. Just knowing he was going to listen to Extant made things very different. And of course in the sic-fi genre in particular he, along with John Williams, literally wrote the book. It was important to him that the characters had distinctive themes, and of course the music had to generate plenty of excitement and tension. All that while working at break neck TV speed. It’s been a thrilling ride!

 

 

What would you say have been your primary inspirations in your productions?

The stories and characters along with the filmmakers themselves. I find that the director (on in the case of TV the writer/ producer) always has really strong instincts and different takes on what the story needs. I find that interaction to be the most amazing and inspiring element of what I do.

 A congratulations are in order for Marcelo as we wish him all the best in his future musical endeavors!
