Ambience tracks in top selling Steam indie game 'Ziggurat'

Recently my two earlier tracks of fantasy ambience genre has hit the Steam market in the game called Ziggurat by Milkstone indie game dev company. Amongst other great tracks in the album it is the ones that are played while discovering foreboding areas in the fast paced action RPG game, which much resembles the old classic game Hexen from the 1990's. You can have a listen to the tracks on Jamendo. Both are quite low profile, game music soundtrack alike stuff. I recommend to listen to the full album if you want some unique classical/sountrack experience.

"I was born in 1980, raised in Hungary, a beautiful European country in the heart of Europe, in Budapest, the capital city. Always immersed in music, let it be rock, metal, symphonic, electronic, game music, soundtracks. That's where my influences come from.

My mission in the musical world is to mirror a universe and give a visionary glimpse to a place where I myself and my children would want to live. A sanctuary place where the listener can immerse his imagination and turn towards an internal panorama where it's good to exist or to burst us to even better levels of the future. I'm much interested in social and moral questions.

Major releases I've composed and produced are:

2008- : Various game soundtracks, major part classically orchestrated (Link)
March/2014: Galactoscopic
June/2014: Freedom Utopia
November/2014: Music for the Wired Generation

I've started my musical career in 2008 composing mainly symphonic/orchestral music for games, and as a composer slowly started directing myself towards instrumental ambient and electronic music for everyday listening. Focusing on instrumental music, melody, moods and musical story building you should expect me to tell stories, strongly theme based and most of the time easy to adapt your imagination to and immerse.
After a longer period of orchestral composition from 2008 to 2011, I've started to refocus myself on music that let's you relax, boost yourself, travel with it, go on with work or to ease your everyday chores while you put it on the speakers. Since 2011 main focus is on producing those tracks. Especially focusing on incorporating sci-fi/fantasy/new age/utopia music and theme elements into the weave of my pop-rock, chill and fusion tracks.

All through these times I've been experimenting with fusioning my favorite elements of music, that you hopefully might just as well like: electronic music, elements of rock, ethnical instrumentation, orchestral instrumentation and classical themes along with sci-fi/fantasy/new age/utopia elements, just to get the musical stories work like magic and entertain. Please, follow and support if you like what you hear!"

Freedom Utopia - Album

'Freedom Utopia' is a Long Play album of 45 minutes, including 8 singles and 2 short intro and interlude tracks. It's a multi and cross genre instrumental electronic fusion album lining up lots of different genres to add to the mix. Ranging from poprock through breakbeat and drum'n'bass to electronic rock ballad. All under the common purpose to entertain and at the same time raise moral awareness of the listener. Themed around the topic of a utopian world and the obstacles before it.

The album was released in the June of 2014 on all major digital distribution platforms, published by Pal Zoltan Illes through an admin publish contract with the cdbaby platform. Consider buying the album to support the indie artist, or simply spread the word of it, play/share the Spotify / Google Music links. Your playing the music (called streaming) on Spotify or Goole Music gives the artist a streaming revenue. The furthering of the cause of independent/unsigned music happens with you and me today!


The composition and production of the album was happening in the first and second quarter of 2014.

Galactoscopic Album

"The interplanetary journey continues on the Galactoscopic level. This album fits within the unique retro-fusion space age line of the author. Combining now more of powerful electronic instruments, some classic orchestral parts with a mantle of space related topics and even some retro-chiptune fun to spice up things. The quick and adventurous parts of this album fit well with the deep space hibernated chill-out sessions coming in between. Let's go!"
