George Oldziey's Shaiya Album ReleasedWedge noticed that the complete official soundtrack for Shaiya has been released. This Korean massively multiplayer game features 21 awesome orchestral compositions by George Oldziey. Many of the pieces are distinctly reminiscent of his classic Wing Commander music. For Oldziey fans, this album is a real treat of familiar goodness. Visit the Shaiya OST page to stream each of the songs or grab the complete package here (24 meg zip). released a couple years back:
A lot of it is influenced by the Wing Commander music I've previously composed. Actually, I thought it might be fun for you all to try to guess which Wing Commander pieces influenced which Shaiya pieces. Check it out! BTW, the coolest thing is that it's all LIVE ORCHESTRA and CHOIR!!! Something I tried for years to get Origin to support. It was recorded at the Clint Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros. just a few week ago. Enjoy!
Here's our very rough translation of each track title (in bold). Wedge has also tried to translate the usage of some tracks to help listeners get a better sense of the music (after the dash).
I could be wrong about these, but I find it easier to appreciate music when I have an idea of what it's supposed to represent.
