What's happening/happened at the SND department:

At this moment I'm preparing/buying a complete gear for having a full mobile studio in Spain. I will be living there for six months. My plane has already been booked on the 3rd of September, so no turning back.

The last months I've been working nights, mornings, evenings ... you name it. That's why there hasn't been very much progress. Furthermore I've had lots of problems with tweaking the mobile gear for audiovisual development. The good news is; it's almost complete. The last parts have been ordered, including the EWQLSO Gold, a great sounding orchestra library.

September is fully booked with composition for 3 student movies.
October will require me to enhance one of the former productions, www.fernandogonzalezguitar.com
Then, from October till February I need to develop a complete portfolio including Content Management System for the future company I want to begin.

So, shortly said, there will be very little time for composition for Xenocide till February 2006. BUT! I will at least work one day in the week for Xenocide. My goal is that every needed track will be composed at the same time I return to Belgium. (SNDDEPT members (at this stage only Cavoe :P) that's something you should do as well ;) )

All by all, I'm looking forward to contribute to Xenocide as much as I can. Hope to see you soon on the forums!


cheers!
