Title: The Messenger Trliogy, part I (dev thread)
Post by: racingstripeAV on January 11, 2018, 12:05:33 am
Since finishing the second album The Messenger Trilogy, Part III (https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=2278.0) back in September, I figured I'd make a thread for development on the third album, that being Part I (yes, these are being released out of order, it just makes more sense from a narrative standpoint). This thread will probably be solely for any WIPs that I write for Part I, and will be creating a new thread for when the album itself is complete (which I don't know when that will be; I'd like to finish it ideally by late-2019, mid-2020 at the latest).

For now, here are the current list of WIPs for The Messenger Trilogy, Part I:

• 07. Innocence (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/25748737) 1:59 [SKETCH 01b] (2017-12-15)
• 08. Cold Sweat (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/28991327) 2:24 [SKETCH 01a] (2018-10-11)
• 09. The Resistance (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/26833309) 0:57 [SKETCH 01] (2018-03-29)
• 12. Upon a Furrowed Brow (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/27301012) 6:53 [SKETCH 01] (2018-05-10)

List will be constantly updated as new WIPs are added.

New WIP:

Upon a Furrowed Brow (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/27301012) 6:53 [SKETCH 01] (2018-05-10)
I wouldn't exactly call this a "multipart" song (cf., Fermi Paradox I-V (https://youtu.be/0RgsHc0AbAU?list=PL1INgffRWF-GwTTbFdTErMPWrkhe5bGx8)) despite having definite "sections", but as far as what I have planned with the album, this song is definitely more story-heavy compared to the ideas I have for some of the other tracks; hence why you're getting the full 6:53 rather than a verse and chorus.

Considering how SKETCH 01 is already 2:24 long (and is projected to be around the 6:30 mark), I'm honestly concerned that I might be writing too much, as I'm aiming to keep Album 3 one disc (so, 79 minutes total); however from what I've planned, it already seems to be creeping dangerously close to that number, and I don't want to split it across two discs (partially because there's no good place to put a break, and also I don't want to *remove* content because it would take away important story elements).

Still, I've only began building 6 out of the projected 15 tracks so far (two of which haven't been posted here, as they're not quite ready yet), so maybe - hopefully - the issue will fix itself before it even arises.
