The Empyrean Suite – Citadel of Light

Tags : 

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditFacebooktwittergoogle_plusreddit

Longtime Transformers: MTMTE and Audio Knights Theatre fan, Craig (known as DocKrog on Twitter), was inspired by Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Issue 39 , Tarn-FaceTheMusic on Tumblr, and our very own #AudioKnights T.F.Allen , who’d created clips of the now-infamous Empyrean Suite, and fleshed out a score for the song!

Craig was nice enough to share his song with us, and gave permission for us to use it in our upcoming MTMTE5 audiodrama! He shared his process with us, so we adapted it into a “Q&A” style interview! Check it out!

Craig: “Thanks so much for the excitement around my take on the Empyrean Suite. If it shows up in #5 it’s going to be a tremendous treat for my kids and me; can’t wait to see the look on their faces. They’ve had to listen to this thing about 200 times.”

TAKT: “Ha! We’ve put our kids through the same with our editing! We will absolutely include this in issue 5, in a scene that has original dialogue, which we call “incidental dialogue,” that helps flesh out the background of scenes as an addition to James Roberts’ words and the artists’ work! Do you have much experience creating music?”

Craig: “Not a professional musician. I have no training, I just play around and I really wanted to hear that song! Indebted to whoever was kind enough to make that 4 second clip that went around. I mostly built around that, glancing back at the notes in the comic for inspiration.”

TAKT: “T.F. Allen and Tarn-FaceTheMusic did a great job pulling those notes out of the comic and into a basic form – what cues did you draw from to create your version?”

Craig: “Rather than the ‘original’ song by Eucryphia, you’re supposed to hear the connotations of the music. You’re supposed to hear Tarn’s psychopathy/conflict, Ultra Magnus’ love of order, Skid’s haunted lack of understanding, what Rung might whistle, the dread of the DJD victims. Most of all, you’re supposed to feel the building of the Citadel now, the climbing nature of it, promise set against future ruin. I like my Transformers with a mix of nobility and loss, and it should show without sounding anything like Fall of Cybertron, or Transformers Prime (which imo, set the bar for TF music), etc.”

TAKT: “It sounds absolutely amazing! We noticed you got a few tips from our Lead Editor, Pete Lents while you were working on it. Did you get any other input on the song before you finished it?”

Craig: “It passed my test, when my 6 year old son said ‘I can see why Tarn uses that on his victims. That’s a death song.’

Out of the mouths of babes, to be sure! Thank you again for this incredible contribution to the fandom and to The Audio Knights Theatre, Craig, and we hope you’ll continue to share your creativity with us! By the powers vested in me by the Tyrest Accord, you are an honorary Audio Knight!
