A Conceptual Artist
From the mind of composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Romsam Malpica, a new way of presenting cinematic atmospheres through an audiovisual experience has been born under his new moniker THE FOLSOM PROJECT. A mix of Orchestral Rock, Trap, and Trip-hop, THE FOLSOM PROJECT draws inspiration from Romsam’s experience with film scoring and dark sound design, which he explores on his debut cinematic concept album PART 1: THE WOLF AND THE SKULL, set for release in early 2020. The newest single from the album, “ICELAND,” will release online December 6, 2019 everywhere music is streamed and sold.
THE FOLSOM PROJECT was conceived in 2015 while Romsam was studying music production for a year at Pyramind in downtown San Francisco, CA. Originally from Jalisco, Mexico, Romsam was inspired by his new surroundings, and he took the name of the street where his SF Music Academy was located for THE FOLSOM PROJECT.
It was here that Romsam Malpica began to develop the concept of an “audible action thriller.” The resulting debut album PART 1: THE WOLF AND THE SKULL is a soundtrack to the story he tells of a sick and troubled doctor in charge of a biochemical lab in the middle of the woods. The doctor works on the mysterious Folsom Project, which hides a dark truth. The story is told through the eyes of “The Wolf,” an animalistic creature that awakens in the woods with no memory and a thirst for vengeance, and explores The Wolf’s journey to unravel the truth about his past and stop the doctor at all costs.
Based on my music style, I've worked in different projects with different clients, either composing music for their projects or mixing and mastering a composition of their own.
