Skara: The Blade Remains wins the Indie Prize for Best Game Audio at Casual Connect USA

SKARA’s second Indie Prize comes from Casual Connect USA, which finishes this week in San Francisco, California. The award is for Best Game Audio and comes on the heels of the Indie Prize for Best Game Design, won in Singapore earlier this summer.

Skara’s sound team consists of just two developers, Marc Celma, Spanish composer currently residing in Japan, and Spanish sound designer, David Garcia.

“I love working on Skara.” Celma said upon hearing about the award. “Its artwork is so beautiful, and its lore so rich, that I try to make the music be at the same level, and convey all it says to me. I’m happy someone thinks I’m on the right path!”

“You can’t underestimate the importance of audio to the gameplay experience.” says Pablo, Skara’s Creative Director. “We put every effort to making sure every detail is in line with that experience. It’s great to have that work recognized!”

Spear and Shield

This is a promo ad for the League of Legends World at Gamergy 2014, Madrid.

It had to feature a bit of Xin and Braum’s background and it had to convey the energy of the fight; but more than anything… it had to be epic!

Antimatter

 is a science fiction game in its early stages of production. I will be making the whole soundtrack for it.

Here’s its main theme, a 4 minute loop that alternates between a melody-driven part and a more ambience-like section.

Michino Go!

This is its main theme, composed as a 90 seconds loop with a series of layers that fade in/out as you progress through the game, or you fall back.

Almas, by Paco Caballer

I’ve made the music for Paco Caballer‘s second short film (still in post-production). It’s too soon to show the whole project, but here’s the music.

The film’s sound is very effect-driven, and so the music itself without the SFX might seem incomplete. Next January, when the film is released, I will update this post with the final video.

Absolute Zero

During the 2012 summer I was asked by some friends to join them in their video game project Absolute Zero, a 3D survival platform game set in a technological world, but lost in a high mountain environment.

It hasn’t gone past the demo phase yet, but I hope it will some day.

UVA promo video

In December 2012 I made the music for a promotional video for University of Virginia’s program in Valencia. They wanted a short loop that would be at the same time dynamic, calm and with a Spanish touch.
