Shockwave-Sound presents “Massive Impact, Vol. 12”

Here at we are very proud to present our new collection of “epic music”, entitled Massive Impact, Vol. 12.

Our Massive Impact series has always been popular, thanks to the, well, massive impact of these epic, cinematic tracks.

No expense is spared when we develop a new volume in this series, and similar to the previous volume in the series, we hire a live philharmonic orchestra (this time consisting of 25 string players, each playing their parts twice, 7 french horn players each playing their parts two or three times each, and a live soprano vocalist singing her parts 4-8 times each (some times only a solo voice for a fragile, haunting sound), making this a total of 64-75 live performing orchestral instruments – which we record and combine these recordings with stacks of samplers, to produce a truly epic, cinematic sound.

Additionally, a soprano singer was brought in to add a soaring, fragile, female soprano vocal to several of the tracks; singing solo in some sections, whilst combining with a choir in other parts.

The composer of the 10 tracks that make up Massive Impact Vol. 12 is Yuri Sazonoff (original spelling Iouri Sazonov) who is a composer of Russian origin, living and working in Toronto, Canada, but often going back to Moscow to record with live orchestras. The live orchestral recordings were arranged and conducted by Yuri also.

Each track in the Massive Impact series comes in various different edits and mixes; such as “Strings only mix”, “No choir mix”, “Percussion only mix”, “Chamber orchestra mix” and so on, giving the user valuable options to choose the version / mix that suits their project, or to use one mix in one scene, and then to revisit the same theme, using a different version / mix for a different scene.

We hope you’ll enjoy this collection of “grand” and soaring music, as much as we enjoyed developing it.

Let’s go surfing! …with our brand new collection of Surf Rock music

We’re very happy to unveil our very latest release: Pulp & Surf Rock, Vol. 4.

This is a pretty amazing collection of brand new tracks composed and produced especially for Lynne Publishing for it’s stock music / royalty-free music label.

As with all our music collections, the music can be licensed as a whole collection, or individually as tracks, or even individually as single versions / edits of the tracks — for example, only a single music loop. If you wish to license individual tracks or edits from this music collection, simply type the track title into the “quick search” box on our site, and the track will come up in search results.
We think the track “Surfin’ For Fun” sums up this music collection nicely. With its fun and lively style, busy guitar picks and that unmistakeable 1960’s Surf Rock sound, as defined by the Beach Boys, Dick Dale, the Del-Tones and others. The collection also touches on the more “Rockabilly” influences of artists like Buddy Holly, Bill Haley and his Comets, Eddie Cochran, Duane Eddy and others.
All tracks are composed exclusively for by U.S. based composer / songwriter Kieren Charles Smith. We hope you’ll enjoy this new “major release” from Have a great weekend, all!
