Welcome to the year 5804 A.F. There is general peace and free trade across the expanse of the Galactic Mega-Empire. With the aid of advanced technology, human kind has spread out across the galaxy and continues to explore and settle new worlds. For one man though, there is a deeper purpose to this galactic exploration. After awaking alone on a laboratory table, and with no memory of his past, Searcher now roams the galaxy with his robotic companion Stallion in search of answers. Answers about his forgotten past. Answers about why he awoke alone in that laboratory. He knows in his heart that these answers are important somehow, but they remain shrouded in fog and just out of reach. And so he searches.
Now you can join in on the new audio adventures of Searcher & Stallion as they roam the galaxy looking for information that can unlock Searchers past. Check back often for new episodes, pod casts and information on the production of this unique audio adventure. And visit our About Us page for a glimpse into Searcher & Stallion’s history.
Here’s what’s been going on…
Searcher & Stallion was featured on the Sonic Society radio show in December:
Kendall’s “Dreams and Wings” soundtrack CD is now available online:
Dreams and Wings Soundtrack on eMusic
I did an interview with Fred Greenhalgh at RadioDramaRevival:
S&S “Dreams and Wings” is available for Itunes RSS feed at Podiobooks.com:
Garth is wrapping up his “Stallion fights a Dragon” story.
Brad is wrapping up his story “The Seductress”.
I Can’t wait to get back into the studio!
At long last Dreams and Wings is finished. And to say thanks to all of you who waited so patiently, please feel free to listen to the entire story below. Also, please feel free to download other Searcher & Stallion stories by signing up for our forum.

I wanted to toss out another quick announcement this week… in addition to the Dreams and Wings Soundtrack that is now available to forum members, the classic story Mirror In The Shadows is also now available for download in the forum. All 3 episodes from this original series classic are posted and ready for download, but check back soon because we still have several classic stories from the original series that will be made available for download. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop us a line.
I’m proud to announce the release of the soundtrack for “Of Dreams and Wings.” It’s 90 minutes of original music in a 2-disc set of 23 high-quality MP3s.
Download links are posted in the “Members Only” section of the fan forum (visit the forum here). If you don’t already have a forum account, please do sign in and download the tracks – they’ll only be available here for a limited time, for our charter fans, you guys out there that have been following the show for years, long before it becomes the next big thing!
So a couple weeks after my last post, Garth called to say he lost a drive in the array on his server. The bad news is that we were knocked back to Mid December. The good news is that (after many hours of work by G) were back up to here:
One line to retake in Ep 4
Rebuild SFX for final scenes in Ep 4
Need to re-tweak mix levels in eps 1-4 (bah)
So we’re …..you know……. 99.99999% done with “Dreams and Wings”
I can’t express enough how I want this show done and “in the can”. (In the old fashioned days when audio tape or film was used, when a project was finished, the reel of tape would be placed in tinny metal dinner plate sized short metal container or “can”.) I suppose a modern version would be “I want the show done and on the thumb drive!” This setback was like a baseball bat to the face.
Kendall has spent a while remixing the music he created for the 4 episodes of “Dreams and Wings” into a coherent 90 minute piece. Last night Kendall and I were hosting an electronic music show On KRCL ( twitter.com\showwithnoname ) and we played the full 90 minutes of score music over the radio. If you’d like a copy, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
(of course I don’t see why we couldn’t make that music available in the forums)
Kendall is digging through the thousands of instruments in “Omnisphere” so we can find the couple of dozen “self dynamic” instruments that can be used to singlehandedly create music for a whole scene by basically holding down the middle C key on the keyboard. If we can find enough of these instruments (and I think we are), then show production can be improved by a factor of 10. It will open up a whole new world for us.
Off to work on the next story.
