A considerable amount of time has passed since we last updated everyone on the progress of Castle Gillian – and monumental progress has been happening to be assured. The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the development timeline of our new musical just as it has upended the world-at-large.
We have now completed the original concept album (OCR) of the music from the show which will be released in coming months along with a few teasers in advance of the album release.
We’re also excited to announce that we will be giving the first complete reading-presentation of Castle Gillian on October 9 this year in Melbourne. This was originally scheduled to take place in New York City, but the global pandemic has curtailed all plans on this front for the time being.
In a bold move not only will the soundtrack be released in 48K Stereo, but also in the new Apple Lossless Audio codec as an Ambisonic audio product mixed in 7.1.2. If you’re not technically minded, this just means that the audio experience is totally immersive in headphones or with a sophisticated home audio system with multiple speakers. The sound quality is incredible from what we have been hearing in the studio mixing the songs from the show.
In the next post, we will introduce you to some of the soundtrack cast of Castle Gillian. The cast comprises exceptional Australian talent all of whom were put through a rigorous dialect development program in Irish pronounciation to being a level of authenticity to the heard experience.
