FRANCIS ROBERTS - Releases A New Dungeon Synth EP, Available For Streaming In Its Entirety

Francis Roberts, better known as the mastermind behind King Gorm and Old Man Wizard has released a new dungeon synth EP entitled Under The Forgotten Village. It tells the short story of an adventurer's triumphant return from a dungeon, only to find that time had passed differently above ground, leaving home in ruins.

Francis Roberts commented: "I wrote and recorded Under The Forgotten Village on Friday during a live stream. It was inspired by fantasy game soundtracks (specifically older RPGs), Dungeon Synth, and Berlin School style music. I'm in the process of cutting up the footage from Twitch to create "Making Of" videos for my YouTube channel as a way to help people who are getting into home music production (I have a series about this called "Dungeon Synthesis" already). There's something really fun about the urgency of doing creative work on a live stream. I think I get a rush from feeling like I need to make the next composition decision immediately. None of the music was prepared beforehand, but one thing that was nerve wracking for me was coming up with the track titles and a loose fantasy narrative to associate with the music while people were watching and listening. I'd rather be writing music for someone else's video game!"
