Adventures in Erylia is Proud to Feature Music From These Great Artists
- Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech
- Alexander Nakarada of Serpent Sound Studios
- Adrian von Ziegler
- Jamie Brace of Daemon Studios
Check out Kevin MacLeod’s website Incompetech. This is one of the first artists that we started using on our show and he has a vast catalog of many different styles of music available. You’ll recognize his song, The Path of the Goblin King, as the intro song for the Mieveht Story campaign.
Kevin actually played D&D with that horrible rounded d20 they included with the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set (the red cover with the green dragon and the wizard on it).
If you like his music, check out our Google Play Music Playlist.
Tabletop Audio is a website that features over 100, 10-minute-long ambient and music tracks that are perfect for many different role-playing scenarios.
I discovered Vindsvept through a post over on the Dungeons and Dragons subreddit. The music he composes is great for cinematic fantasy, as well as listening to to get inspired for a session of D&D. We use his song, Last Stand, as the outro music in the Mieveht Story campaign. Here’s a bit from Vindsvept:
Ahoy, I’m Vindsvept. I’m a musician from the frozen north of Sweden. I’ve been writing music most of my life, a few years ago I started a YouTube channel and started to upload my tunes. Since I started four years ago I’ve released almost 100 tracks in varying styles, though mostly focusing on minimalist folk-pop and orchestral arrangements.
It has been popular in actual plays for quite some time, and when we relaunched the show with a new recording set up, we decided to incorporate Syrinscape into our sessions. It is great for setting a mood and tone while playing, as well as an area of humor when a silly effect is found. Though we took a few recordings to get the audio just right for the posted episodes, but we seem to have found a good level for it now.
Unfamiliar with Synrinscape?! Well you’ll hear it on the show! But since we have a bunch of other music added in during post, check out this video by them to demo this awesome piece of software. And if you’d like to try it out for yourself, Syrinscape has provided us a link to a free 30 trial!
You can also view our Syrinscape soundscapes from the links below. As we progress through the campaigns, a new soundscape will be added to the list for the story arc, and during the arc, the soundscape will grow as well.
While working on Episode 5, I saw a post on Incompetech introducing people to the work of Alexander Nakarada. I liked quite a few pieces of his work and am excited to be adding his work to the show. Here’s a little bit about him:
Adrian von Zielger is musician I found on YouTube a while ago whose music I have used as inspiration while working on preparing for a session for quite some time now. He has been putting music on YouTube for nearly a decade with a focus on folk and instrumental metal tracks. While I was getting in touch with some musicians whose music we have been using under creative commons, I decided to cast a net out to Adrian and ask if he had a license like we already use. He doesn’t, but he was open to allowing us to use his music with his permission. Some advice I’ve been given before, “You already not using it, the worst they can do is say no, and you’re right where you are now.” We’re happy to be adding his huge catalog of music to our shows options!
Either through someones retweet, or browsing the D&D hashtags, I came across Jamie Brace. All of his music has been released through his Patreon, and I was initially cautious about it and let him know I wish he had a demo of his music so I could see what I’d be paying for. Within a couple weeks, he put together a demo video for YouTube and I was sold. Here’s a few words from Jamie:
Hey there! I’m Jamie, a 24 year old musician hailing from the UK! I’ve been composing for nearly 15 years now, with a recent focus on soundtrack and sound design. With help from Deven Rue, I finally got around to making my own Patreon where I create custom tracks for RPG campaigns, including character themes, NPC themes and opening music!
Here is a sample of Jamie’s music:
