King's Quest V Soundtrack - Remastered & Re-orchestrated

Based on the wonderful and enchanting themes originally composed by the legendary Mark Seibert and Ken Allen, "King’s Quest V – Songs of Serenia" transports you back to the magical world of King's Quest V, poisonous snakes and all - but more vivid and lifelike than ever before.

Utilizing some of the best orchestral samples available, as well as live performances and ambiance, producer and arranger Erik Elsom has painstakingly reorchestrated the score using the game's original MIDI data, but many of the pieces have been re-mixed to accentuate the already-iconic composition and writing of the original composers.

Says Erik: "This project is nine months in the making and is my pride and joy. I'm excited to share it with you on this beautiful set!"

This heavy-duty, transparent dual-color, double-vinyl set comes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with high quality artwork by the great Bruce Brenneise (covers & gatefold) and former Sierra artist Al Eufrasio (center label art).

This is a fully fan-made project that has garnered a lot of community support over the entire course of production and many artists have contributed to it to make it into something really special.

My parents saw enough music in me at a young age to buy me a keyboard for my seventh birthday. At that point, my life changed. I loved everything about music and began teaching myself music theory with some beginners books we had and I started piano lessons soon thereafter. I studied with some composers who had composed a lot of their own stand-alone works for choir and orchestra so I learned a lot about composition and music writing during this time. This is when I learned to write and record using software as well.

As a teen I picked up the viola and began studying with a local music academy. I played viola in string quartets and had, up until recently (because covid), played viola with the Gonzaga symphony where we have accompanied some pretty spectacular artists such as Midori and Shlomo Mintz!

I began working on my first musical compositions for piano when I was 13 and have composed some pieces for some youtube intros and arranged pieces for various instruments for weddings, etc.

My latest projects include a track for King’s Chill Vol. 2 (Nectar of the Gods) as well as re-mastering/mixing/orchestrating the entire King’s Quest V soundtrack for my project- King’s Quest V - Songs of Serenia!
