Firstly! This week marks one whole year of the JabunAudio news blog (what you're reading right now)! It's crazy to think it's been that long and looking back at all the exciting stuff that's happened in the past year makes me smile. Thanks soo much to everyone who's been reading, collaborating and showing their support this past year! Let's make the next 12 months even better than the last!
On the topic of collaboration, Fun Station 4 Kids has finished yet another T-Rex story animation "A Very Useful T-Rex"! This one was a crazy amount of fun, as this time I'm narrating the story as well as doing my usual audio duties! It's parody, its colourful and it's got some awesome 3d modelling, something reasonably new for FS4Ks! Big well done to Anthony (the writer and animator and most of the voices) for his great accents and visuals! On top of the really nice comments we've received so far, "A Very Useful T-Rex" also received the Daily 3rd place award and a front page feature on Newgrounds, a crazy and unexpected achievement! We'll have to upload there more often XD If you've yet to see the animation, please feel free to check it out below! We hope you enjoy it XD
Onto the other happenings this week, more progress was made on the new Better Than The Book Album! The final guitar solo (recorded on my homemade double-neck guitar) was recorded, which means all the guitars are finished! (If your wondering, bass was finished aaaaaages ago XD) I also managed to get the rest of the sung backing vocals finished too which means all that's left to record is the rap vocals in track 07! Lots to sort out with that though with Bob Axell (Cyberdevil), so that might have to wait a while. In the mean time, all that's left is filling in the sonic space with keyboards, or any extras as necessary and checking/sorting the recordings prior to mixing! Hopefully that shouldn't take too long, though we shall see! Totaling up, looks like the album should have a run-time of about 30 minutes too, over twice as long as the One Small Step EP. Hope you're getting as psyched as I am, I can't wait for people to hear it!
That's it for this week! More BTTB for next week I think (trying to get as many songs to the mixing stage as I can and fill in the sonic gaps in the arrangements, which in theory should be all of them apart form track 07), should be busy! Until next week, thanks so much again for supporting JabunAudio and keeping this news feed and adventure alive for a whole year now! Hope you enjoy T-Rex's new adventure and take care :D
