Post Interview with Philippe Vachey !

Hi everybody,

I know the MBN for a long time, and I'm really delighted to see that the LBA fans are still alive . I'm French and I discovered LBA1 & 2 about 5 years ago... These two masterpieces are still in my personnal top 5 in video games !

I registered to the forum because I will have an interview with Philippe Vachey, who composed the musics in LBA1 & 2. I'm sure you'd like to ask him a lot of questions... I will add the most interesting questions in my interview .

A très bientôt, et vive LBA !
LFP

a) Welcome to the forum
b) Absolutely, they are still in my top 5 games too.

c) Howd you get an interview with him?
I'm sure many people will be interested here in that. His music is absolutely superb and adds much to the atmosphere of the games.

There was another interview here ( http://forum.magicball.net/showthrea...t=14113&page=2) but it wasnt fully translated.

hey welcome to the MBN! and thanks very much for sharing this interview with the rest of us.. I can think of hundreds of questions i'd like to ask but the main would be:
1) Are there any plans to create an LBA 3? If not, how could we help to support this idea and to make it happen?
2) Is the LBA creator group working together and do you often talk about an LBA sequel?
3) Has the LBA 3 project been presented to the publishers? Where they interested? If not, what can we do to call their attention?
In conclusion, to ask him about any news or ideas he knows about LBA..
thanks again

Aruchi89 - We already know the answer to a lot of those questions from Axx's interviews and contact with Fred.

Best keep most of the questions music-focused, although that can be LBA/Music related.
-

Personally, Id be interested to hear what other stuff he has been working on. Has he worked on music for any other games? Will he work on music for LittleWorlds studios games ? Does he have any rough drafts or scraps of music left over that didnt make it into LBA1 or 2?

1) Do you have any music for us to hear that didn't make it to the LBA games?
2) What was your inspiration for the LBA music?
3) What software did you you to compose the music in LBA?
4) Did you have much freedom in creating the music with your own style?

1) who where his main influences in music creation?
2) what music from other games (than his own) does he adore?
3) for what project (game/movie/..., either past or current) would he like to compose the music for?
4) in hindsight, what would he change to the music of LBA/LBA2 (if anything at all)?

It might be too specific for a question, but I'm really curious what Philippe Vachey thinks about the LOST soundtrack. To me it sounds exactly the same style as his music for LBA1.

We're used to hearing that from new members. Nobody should worry about "bad" English, as long as they can express themselves it's not a problem at all.

I "work" (for free) for a french website specialised in adventure video games : Planète Aventure. I already did interviews with Waël Amr (Frogwares) and Martin Malik (Future Games). An interview with Cédric Lagarrigue (Focus Home Interactive) and with Charles Cecil (Revolution Software) should be published in the next monthes.

The main aim of all my interviews is to have a lot of informations to write very good articles on the french Wikipédia. But it's also to learn more about the people who created the video games I liked !

1.) Like Jesse meant: Where did the sounds come from he used to create the LBA1 / LBA2 soundtracks. AKAI samplers? ROLAND expanders? What ever... very interesting for musicians

2.) How did he compose the music? Did he invent the themes/melodies on keyboard? How did he arrange the orchestral score? Which software sequencer did he use?

3.) Which music genres does he listen to? Does he have favorite composers/musicians/bands?

4.) How did he get started in game music creation business? Did the study music/composing/arranging or what about his "musical education"?

The LBA theme tune is my favourite piece of music ever, yet I can't think of any questions

Actually I have one, not too sure how to say it though. I noticed if overlapped the LBA 1 and LBA 2 theme tunes follow the same pattern, was the LBA 2 theme tune created from scratch, or was the 1st one just edited? Also I want to know if he prefers the theme tune to LBA 1 or 2. And as alredy been asked, I really want to know where he got his inspiration.

I hope you don't mind if I add another few questions.

1. Which of the 2 LBA-Games has in your oppinion more emotional Music.
2. What do you think about other music made for games (especially the one of "Croc - Legend of the Gobbos" which I found the only music that is as memorable for a game as LBA's) do you have a favorite game-music?
3. What do you think about the Idea to create an LBA-Medley-Score for a real Orchestra, as already tried by a few MBN-Members?

I'd love to know if he had any midi recordings of the songs, or sheet music, as I'd love to play them but never been able to figure out the notes to much on my piano =/

I'm interested in the "non-professional" part of his relation to music.

1) What music do you listen to?
2) Who is your favourite musician/band?
3) Have you ever played in a rock band?

Bonjour LFP

Désolé a tous de ne pas répondre en anglais , mais étant tous deux francais , il nous est plus facile de dialoguer dans notre langue natale.

Si j'ai bien traduis tu es venu rejoindre le fanclub deja immense qui regroupe les LBAtistes ....

Nous avons tous ici comme toi , joués et adorés LBA I puis LBA II .... Depuis 10 ans nous sommes tous en alerte de la moindre news qui parlerait de LBAIII

Comme tu as pu le voir ici et en surfant sur le net , nous sommes en attente d'une suite du jeu , tellement accroc , que des petitions multiples se sont ouvertes sur le net pour demander la creation de cette suite

Nous savons tous que le scenario est ecrit et qu'il ne reste " qu'a pisser du code " , mais la société Adeline ayant été disloquée et les membres partis à droite et à gauche , il n'est pas facile de faire la suite ....

Alors si tu vois un des grands minitoux de LBA , je pense que la question qui brule les levres de chacun est de savoir si LBA III verra réellement le jour et si oui dans combien de temps ... ou si ce projet restera a tout jamais dans un carton ....

Voila 10 ans que tout le monde attend , une année de plus ou deux , on en mourra pas.

Un grand merci pour les reponses a toutes les questions qui t'ont été posées ici et auxquelles tu pourras nous éclairer

Merci
Bien Cordialement

Hello LFP

Sorry to all not to respond in English, but both are french, it is easier to converse in our native language.

If I translate you came to join the already huge fanclub which includes LBAtistes ....

We all here like you played and then I loved LBA LBA II .... For 10 years we are all on alert for any news which said LBAIII

As you can see here and surf the net, we are waiting for a sequel to the game, so addicted, that multiple petitions were opened on the net to ask for the creation of this suite

We all know that the scenario is written and there is no "code that piss", but the company Adeline was dislocated and the members left to right and left, it is not easy to follow ....

So if you see a large minitoux for LBA, I think the question that burns the lips of everyone is whether LBA III will truly the day and if so, how long ... or if this project will always be in a box ....

Voila 10 ans que tout le monde attend an additional year or two, you die.

A big thank you for answers to any questions that you have been raised here and which you can enlighten us

Thank you
Sincerely
Jerome Meunier
Paris

I realize a lot of your questions have already been answered in last year's interview. Unfortunately it was only partly translated to English. I'd suggest to dig on that before you ask the same questions again (sorry I don't have time to translate it again).
