Upcoming Performances!

I will be traveling around the world twice in the upcoming weeks….traveling musically, that is! I am performing in two different “world” themed concerts:

 

First up, the UCLA Game Music Ensemble presents Around the World in Seven Games – a concert focusing on music from games that take place around the world. Featuring full orchestra, choir, some rare instruments, and guest stars! Concert is on May 24 at 8pm. Tickets are free but must be acquired here in advance. It will also be streamed online!

 

Next, the Angel City Chorale presents One World Many Voices II – a concert of world music including a new piece by Christopher Tin and the world premiere of my piece “Cempasúchil” for choir and orchestra! Join us on June 2 and 3 at 7pm. Buy tickets here.

Zelda Music Month! – 2 New Zelda Albums

May seems to be the month for releasing Zelda music! I am happy to be a part of two different albums of arrangements from the Legend of Zelda series, both of which release this month.

Ballads of Hyrule, an album of stunning orchestrations by Rozen, is officially out as of today, May 1st! Rozen asked me to sing on two of his pieces, and I was more than happy to oblige. The album is an excellent follow up to his Sins of Hyrule from last December.

Meanwhile, video game label and artist haven Materia Collective is releasing a giant album of music dedicated to Majora’s Mask!  I had the privilege of singing on pieces by Nautilus T Party, Fredrik Häthén, and Laura Intravia. FATE: A Tribute to Majora’s Mask arrives on May 24, and you’ll definitely want to check it out!

 

Sins of Hyrule Vinyl is here!

Last year I was a part of Rozen’s latest album, Sins of Hyrule, an epic retelling of the mythology behind the Legend of Zelda series.

Thanks to the fine folks at Materia Collective, we took an extra step with this release and pressed vinyls, and they are finally shipping out! They look and sound amazing! If you are at all into vinyl I highly recommend checking it out. You can purchase from Bandcamp here and from Amazon here.

If you haven’t heard the album yet, take a look at this lovely review from someone on Amazon, who says it better than I could!

 

New Music Video!

New music video alert! I had made a quick cover of “Memories of Dust” – the beautiful desert theme from NieR:Automata – back in December, and I wanted to make a video for it. I don’t put out music videos frequently, but it’s a lot of fun! Who knows, maybe we’ll see more of these in the future. 😉

ACC Composition Debut

As part of my plan to make more music this year, I am excited to share that I will be writing a piece for the Angel City Chorale! It will be performed in the 25th Anniversary concert this coming June. I’ve performed with this group for years and can’t wait to debut my own composition with them.

The theme of the concert is world music, and my piece is a Mexican-influenced work with lyrics in Spanish, written by me and my native-Spanish-speaking husband. I’m crossing off two goals of mine with this song: write more music in Spanish, and write a piece for Angel City Chorale to perform. Looking forward to sharing it with the world!

MAGFest 2018

I had an absolute blast at my first MAGFest in Maryland at the beginning of January. It was incredibly fun to meet so many enthusiastic fans and creators of video games and music! The hotel was huge and yet was still full to bursting with convention-goers.

The highlight of the weekend was winning a G.A.N.G. Remix Award for Best Vocal Remix with my song Amusement Park from NieR: Glory to Mankind! Thanks so much to all who voted for us in the Remix Competition!

2018 – New Year, New Stuff

Hello and happy 2018!

This year has already started out at full speed. At the beginning of January, I attended MAGFest for the first time. Definitely hoping to make it there again in future years!

I have several goals for 2018, the first of which was to publish my website. I’m so glad to have it out there, finally!

There are more exciting projects in the works, including undisclosed video game(s), album features, and potentially a solo album from me! Keep up to date with my work by checking in here at my site or following me on social media.
