After graduating from the Berklee College of Music with a degree in Film Scoring, he moved to Chicago, where he, alongside his life-long music partner Brian Holl, laid the ground work for the acclaimed recording project Foreign Fields. E. Hillman returned to his home studio in Nashville to begin work on the score for ASHEN, an open-world action adventure game developed by the New Zealand based studio, A44.Released in December 2018, ASHEN is a 3rd-person, skill-based, action RPG about guiding your wanderer in search of a place to call home. There is no sun and the natural light that exists comes from eruptions that cover the land in ash. In the game, you fight alongside others, forge friendships and defeat the creatures of shadow determined to cast the world back into darkness. You explore mysterious dungeons, fight epic bosses and explore diverse regions filled with gorgeous vistas and mythical creatures. In this new era of light, you must protect the Ashen and destroy the hungering shadows once and for all.In this episode e.hillman, shares his first-time-experience in working in the video games industry. He reveals the context and evolution of his music for Ashen and his unique approach in representing the post-apocalyptic-world of the game. Hillman shares why he chose to remove nearly all melody from the score and elaborates on how his instrumentation also reflects the players progress in the game.  ANNOTATED TRACKS / SEGMENTS02:43 - Ashen07:19 - Vagrant's Rest (A Place to Call Home)OTHER TRACKS00:00 - Sissna, Spinner of Shadows12:17 - The WhispersSOUNDTRACKThe original soundtrack for Ashen was released on January 18, 2019 by Annapurna Interactive. You can purchase the soundtrack on Amazon.com and on iTunes or stream it on Spotify or Apple Music. MORE ABOUT THE COMPOSERYou can find out more about and hear more music by E.

Chad Hobson - Leaving Neverland
Episode of
The Annotator
Chad Hobson's diverse talents as a composer and performer have prompted collaborations with many prestigious figures in the film industry. He arranged and played Asian ethnic instruments, supported by a full orchestra, for James McTeigue and the Wachowskis' Ninja Assassin. He also provided vocals and choral arrangements for the classically scored The Young Victoria, produced by Martin Scorsese and starring Emily Blunt. Some of his recent projects include two-time BAFTA and Grierson award-winning The Paedophille Hunter directed by Dan Reed, the BBC's BAFTA award-winning series Our War, and the powerful drama A Song For Jenny, directed by Brian Percival and starring Emily Watson. He also wrote the original score for the controversial HBO documentary, LEAVING NEVERLAND.Leaving Neverland is a two-part documentary exploring the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James Safechuck, at age 10, and Wade Robson, at age 7, both of whom were befriended by Michael Jackson. Through gut-wrenching interviews with Safechuck, now 40, and Robson, now 36, as well as members of their family, the film crafts a portrait of sustained abuse, exploring the complicated feelings that led both men to confront their experiences after both had children of their own. Produced and directed by Dan Reed, the documentary recently had its world premiere in the Special Events section at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.In this episode, Chad Hobson reveals how he looked to show a "magical quality" of the two victims and their fateful meeting of Michael Jackson and the over-arching metaphor he used to service as a guide for the tone of his score. Hobson discusses the challenge, choices and goals of writing an actual theme to represent the "abuse," but, at last, why he didn't write a theme for Michael Jackson.ANNOTATED TRACKS / SEGMENTS02:36 - Meeting Michael04:37 - Room at the Hilton07:12 - Magical Moment08:46 - The Invitation11:17 - Magical ValleyOTHER TRACKS00:11 - Trip to HawaiiSOUNDTRACKThe official soundtrack was released digitally on April 1, 2019 by Redrocca Records. It can be purchased on Amazon.com or on iTunes and can be streamed on Spotify or Apple Music.MORE ABOUT THE COMPOSERYou can find out more about and hear more music by Chad Hobson at his official site http://www.chadhobsonmusic.com/ABOUT THE ANNOTATORProduced by Christopher Coleman (@ccoleman) and you can Find more episodes at THEANNOTATOR.NET or you can subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher Radio or wherever you find quality podcasts.FOLLOW USTwitter @audioannotatorFacebook @TheAnnotatorEmail theannotatorpodcast@gmail.comSUBSCRIBEiTunesSpotifyStitcher RadioRadioPublicGoogle Play PodcastsRSS Feed
