I am the person behind the project Idylls of the Last King, under which I have 12 releases so far. My musical tastes are very diverse and I think it shows in my discography, which touches on many different styles.
I enjoy the challenge of trying to weave together sounds and approaches that are not supposed to be part of the traditional Dungeon Synth sound, whilst putting alot of emphasis on making my music as dramatic and cinematic as possible. There is always a narrative and maybe even a story-arch which I follow since that seems to be the best way for me to get inspired and stay on track.
Since I will be hitting 40 any minute now, I want to say that Dungeon Synth and its entire aesthetic touches on a particular nostalgia for a sound and feeling that I cannot find anywhere else. Perhaps it brings back a sense of childhood wonder and curiosity, and the pairing of images of ancient forgotten lands with modern sound design, which seem to imply that anything and everthing is possible. In a sense, the raw spirit of true adventure!
Thank you for taking the time to read all this and I feel honored to have the opportunity to introduce myself and my music whilst in the company of so many incredible peers! Many of you were in fact the inspiration for me to take my first steps into the journey of crafting Dungeon Synth.
My contributions to my latest release, which is a split with my good friend Anglachel called "Prometheus", is the natural progression of everything I mentioned above. You can listen to it here: idyllsofthelastking.bandcamp.com/album/prometheus-split-with-anglachel
You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Spotify, and of course Bandcamp. I also curate a Spotify playlist which you can listen to here.
Enjoy and I would be very happy to hear from you!
