This is the soundtrack for 'Lore By Night', a series of podcasts that explores and the metaplot, events, characters found within the table-top game, 'Vampire: The Masquerade'. and subsequent video games.
Created and published by White Wolf Publishing, 'Vampire: The Masquerade' is part of their World of Darkness series, where players embrace the roles of vampires, werewolves, daemons and even mummies and faeries, that attempt to survive in the modern nights. 'Vampire: The Masquerade' has players become vampires.
I can confidently say that this is my most diverse project of mine to date, as you can hear examples of Romantic piano, Gothic orchestral music, lounge jazz and everything else in between in this soundtrack.
It has also been one of the more challenging projects I have undertaken, as I wanted to explore new sounds that could reflect World of Darkness, which have usually adopted a more rock approach. Whilst these have been very effective in reflecting the personal horror that is coming to terms with being a vampire in previous official projects, I wanted to create equally moving sounds by exploring different genres of music. At the same time, the music has had to sit underneath constant dialogue, so it couldn't get in the way of that.
As always, I really hope you enjoy this album as much as I have written it, for there is bound to be something for everyone in this soundtrack. If you like it, please share with your friends and family. If not, share it anyway, for they may like even if you didn't.
I would like to give thanks to my family, who have never stopped supporting me in each of their own unique ways. I would also like to thank my friends and colleges Tony Manfredonia & Dallas Crane for your expertise regarding mixing and arrangments as I sent you examples of the soundtrack to listen and critique upon.
Thank you, Henriette Poos, for your advice regarding writing the harp parts for the first and last tracks of this soundtrack.
