Anticipation - James WoodcockMy album Anticipation has been available for a couple of years now and I decided to release full length previews of all of my tracks on YouTube and here is the final track from the CD.

‘A New Dawn’ is the tenth track from my album, a composition in an earlier form that originally featured in the ‘Steve Jackson’s Sorcery – The Shamutanti Hills‘ app for iPhone and iPod Touch as the credits music.

This is my favourite track from the CD, so I hope you enjoy it too!

Anticipation Album #9: Emotional Ties by James Woodcock – Full Track Preview [VIDEO]

Anticipation - James WoodcockMy album Anticipation has been available for a couple of years now and I have decided to release full length previews of all of my tracks on YouTube over the coming weeks.

‘Emotional Ties’ is the ninth track from my album, an orchestral track I originally composed when I was just sixteen. At that time, I of course didn’t have the benefit of a Tyros 4 keyboard, however more recently I made a few enhancements and the rest is history.

Just around the corner, Samsung are set to release a few more of their own to add to the selection available and today I had a look at the Samsung Gear 2 Neo Smartwatch in this ‘hands on’ video for Mobile Fun.

FIFA 14 Celebration Fail – Capturing Gaming Clips Goes Mainstream

FIFA 14 Xbox One
For a number of years now, I have been capturing gaming gameplay from various titles going as far back as the Commodore 64 right up to the Xbox 360 and PS3 for my video game reviews. This kind of recording though was limited to those who were happy to invest in additional and often expensive equipment, until both the PS4 and Xbox One were released that is – allowing gamers to share their exciting, epic or darn right ludicrous gaming moments.

So, with my trusty Xbox One, here is a lovely celebration fail I captured using just the console with absolutely no extra recording accessories. Watch as poor Carrick from Manchester United is absolutely nailed by a celebrating player.

After recording the main demo music, I decided to capture video snippets so you can see the Tyros5 from various angles as well as including some of the images provided by Yamaha.
