ABOUT THE PROJECT
EWI-ist Peter Smith and composer Cameron Lam delve deep into the sonic possibilities of the Akai EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) in this new full-length digital album.
Celebrating a collaboration that spans eight years of shared passion, for both music and videogames, Cybermemories merges the fun energy of early videogame music with the powerful expression of contemporary classical music.
In addition to solo and multi-tracked works (a specialty of Peter’s YouTube channel Soundole VGM Covers), the album features pieces with string quartet, percussion and piano – including the piano reduction of Cameron’s EWI concerto, Electric Phoenix.

VIDEO: CIRCUMSPECT PROPHET BY HUGO JUNSTRAND
Originally written for a competition for the music-animation-webcomic phenomenon ‘Homestuck’ by Andrew Hussie. Circumspect Prophet blends sampled instruments with EWI duo for quirky and atmospheric piece.
The piece was based on the prophetic powers of the character Jade from Hussie’s ‘Homestuck’.
Hugo Junstrand reimagines this piece as a descent into a labyrinth of mysteries – sounds giving away what lurks within the darkness.
