C.P.Bryan has been recording and releasing electronic soundscapes, dance grooves and audio collages for well over two decades using a variety of artist names such as "Glitch", "Space Experiments", "Grizzled Greedigut" and "Protoflake". As an avid participant in the home recording revolution of the 1990s made possible by four track tape decks, he quickly adapted to computer-based music recording workstations and online distribution systems as they became available. In addition to developing the Free Soundtrack Music system, C.P.Bryan has released a number of other applications for use by artists and creative writers. More in-depth information about C.P.Bryan's software development and multimedia productions can be found in his online portfolio @ datarealism.com.
The first edition of the Free Soundtrack Music System was initially developed and deployed by C.P.Bryan in 2008: The system design objective was to create an online library of music for video producers which would allow them to easily browse, preview (audition) and download compositions to use in their soundtracks on a royalty free basis. The first release of the music library was very limited - containing only music composed by C.P.Bryan. Before long, other recording artists began to contact the developer/producer with requests to post their own music... As of January 2018 the library contains over 1,400 recordings (with new compositions being added every week). There are now sixteen different contributing composers (or "recording artists") from diverse locations including Canada, Australia, Germany, Greece, The United States, Russia and Asia...
New Music Showcase for February 2018:
The first production by C.P.Bryan appearing in the early part of 2018 is a mellow electronic arrangement of a new composition by long-time collaborator and F.S.M. contributor Steve Lowther. "Supersmooth Deluxe" is the name of this track, and it is available for FREE use for all registered users of the Free Soundtrack Music Service (plus visitors for a limited time). You can audition a full length preview here:
Also new for January 2018: a return to a frequent music production theme found in many of C.P.Bryan's previous recordings: the re-arrangement of classical music compositions in a modern, synthesized format. The latest of these is a techno version of a composition called "Allemande La Syncope" by composer Francios d'Agincour (1684-1758). This reformulation can be found in the royalty free music library with the title "Classical Techno Box" - a reference to the heavy drum machine beat which now provides the framework for d'Agincour's original melody:
In addition to the Free Soundtrack Music System, C.P.Bryan has developed other applications which have been released as shareware or are available for free download. One example: The Cut'n'Mix application is a postmodern word processor for creative writers. To find out about this and other projects from C.P.Bryan, check out his online portfolio @ DATAREALISM.COM.
