ForgottenDawn's News

Posted by ForgottenDawn - April 9th, 2020


Hey, everyone. I hope you're doing well.


I recently brought some changes to my Patreon page, as I grew increasingly unsatisfied with the previous rewarding system. Over the past few months, I matured the idea that reward tiers were unnecessary compared to what I've been able to provide thus far. Not only were they inefficient, but also exclusive and divisional.


As I discussed in my Discord server, a large portion of my creative process is already out in the open free of charge. There's nothing extra worth paywalling for bragging rights, in my eyes. This is who I am, and this is what I do. I take for granted that whoever wants to support me already knows what kind of content I can provide for them. It's no secret to anyone. My creative history is like an open book.


In light of these thoughts, I decided to step forward and rethink how anyone might contribute to the project in the simplest, most direct, and transparent means possible. There would be pay-what-you-want donations, and no more reward tiers. I would only credit my supporters because I simply view it as the right thing to do and worth expressing my gratitude towards. Nothing more, nothing less.


You get what you pay for, essentially, and you now have the option to do so on your own terms. And that's about it. Stay tuned, stay safe.

Hey folks. Just announcing some likely Patreon restructuring/rethinking in the more or less immediate future. I've grown deeply unsatisfied with our current model and I'd like to implement a more honest approach to the platform. I'll keep you all posted.

I thought of compiling a bunch of relaxing ambient tracks that I composed a while back hoping to soothe everyone's nerves, including my own. They can all be found here, by the way. Enjoy.

During this whole coronavirus craze, I've been mostly working from home in full government-imposed hikikomori mode. I'm doing fine, by the way. Where I live is relatively far from risk zones and everyone here has been taking every recommended precautionary measure. Don't want to depress you with pandemic-related news, so I'll just leave you with my latest singles.


Stay safe and play it smart, folks.


We're all in this together.

Another full length, folks!

Renewed thanks to its premiere audience and the early birds who watched it live on my channel. You're awesome.

We did it, folks.


On the wake of this project's 7th anniversary, the channel's subscriber count blew its 1000th candle.


I'd like to share and celebrate this wholesome moment with all of you who have contributed to and keep supporting this journey, and look forward to further milestones over the horizon.


On a different note, there's a new full album release scheduled for March 3rd. As usual, it will premiere on YouTube first, and then be available on Bandcamp and Newgrounds. I will communicate the exact premiere date through our social pages and Discord.


Thank you for your presence and kind support. Stay tuned for more.

So, new decade, new life, right?


No, don't worry, folks. This won't be one of those new year resolution kind of posts. I would rather just spend a few words on things that I have already planned ahead of time and will likely see the light of day at some point in 2020. In fact, it's going to be a huge year in terms of FD releases, and it's mostly due to the culmination of several ideas birthed way back that I have been slowly carrying on as commitments kept piling up.


It's potentially going to be the first year where my own community could have an active role in turning Forgotten Dawn into a creative crossroads for any kind of creator, fan, lurker and casual listener alike. I feel like it would transition the project from a (mostly) isolated one-man endeavor to more of a virtual hub where people can actively share their own creations and be the community. In other words, there may be regular community events in our Discord involving fan-made content I would then showcase on YouTube in dedicated videos and playlists.


Secondly, I've been taking a small break from soundtrack commissions lately because I felt the need to focus on my own content first, on top of facing IRL duties outside of my personal creative sphere. I honestly don't know when soundtracks or VGM-related content like covers will return at some point, but rest assured they will come back into the public spotlight if not by the end of this year, 2021 onward.


Thirdly, if I'm still riding the wave and haven't depleted myself entirely, I would love to design my own commercial sample pack of lo-fi ambiances and sell them in various marketplaces like the Unity Asset Store, since it's something I haven't done in well over 5 years. I wanted to renew my own storefronts (either Unity or Audiojungle) starting last year, but I just couldn't. So, hopefully, small steps will get me through the finish line.


Last, but not least, I'd like to address my doom metal audience coming from difference places around the internet. I haven't forgotten about you. I even have demos for future "atmospheric funeral doom metal experiments" beyond #4, which is still in progress. I've sadly had little time last year to further progress with any of them, since as you might tell I tend to be just a little busy, so I can only hope to at least release a couple finished tracks this year, though, as always, please take it with a pinch of salt.


That's about it. And now for my obligatory e-begging: feel free to leave a dime to my Patreon or anywhere allowing you to buy my own stuff if you'd like, even just the equivalent of a coffee means the world to me. Subscribe, follow, comment, reshare, do whatever you like.


Stay tuned, folks.
