Sonic has always been my favorite video game series. It has always meant a lot to me. The fast-paced addictive gameplay, vivid stages, and, of course, catchy music made my first experience of diving into the Sonic universe one of the most important events of my childhood. Then I started to learn more and more about Sonic the Hedgehog games. They were all amazing to explore, but the music remained the most memorable part of this entertainment. A few years later I started to look for the soundtracks on the Internet and downloaded almost every album existing at that time. I was listening to them on a daily basis, and I was listening to nothing but this music - that's how obsessed I was with it!
In the middle of 2012 I came across a remix of the Special Stage theme from S3&K - Red Sphere, Blue Sphere" by Ben Briggs. Apparently I had to head over to the Project Chaos website, grab the whole album and listen to it. This experience changed my life drastically - the idea of giving all-time favorite video game music a completely new life impressed me lot. I also discovered the album Temporal Duality that was in development, and ultimately that album inspired me to start this album!
My vision for this project was to be simple: I wanted to cover as many games as possible as well as to represent a variety of musical genres to represent the variety of Sonic's journeys. The project immediately started to gather attention from a lot of people. Not surprising at all, given how popular the Blue Blur is. And once I understood that I needed some help, since the project was not going fast enough. This is where I asked Jorito to step in and to direct the album along with me. From that moment the project started to develop with immense speed. I just don't have enough words to express my gratitude - he helped me so much! Also, big thanks to Odai for such vivid art, big thanks to the Sega composers, who played a big role and my life, and finally big thanks to all the musicians who contributed to this outstanding album!
Director: Jorito (Jorrith Schaap)
Even though I have been part of this album for quite a while as a remixer, it was pretty late that I joined as an album co director. And I'm glad I did, because it was an exciting and interesting experience to witness the creation of an album from 'the other side'! Since I'm no expert on things Sonic-related, I have to give mad props to Stepan for defining the vision for the project and doing a lot of the prep work that set things in motion and Odai for really capturing the Sonicness of Sonic. I was happy to be able to contribute some of my 'get stuff done' skills, and helping guide the album and all the people who collaborated towards the final product was a blast. I'm proud of the final result and I'm sure you'll enjoy the album as much as I did!
