Forgot to post yesterday so doing a quick double post today! Two very contrasting styles for todays and yesterdays pieces. Yesterday I went for intense black metal, inspired by some silly conversations in the dungeons and dragons campaign I am part of about what a great name for a black metal band corpse wave would be! I don’t have my guitars with me sadly (they’re in my studio which I currently can’t access due to covid-19) so had to make do with samplers.
and then for today I went in a completely different direction! Feeling inspired by freya’s theme/Burmecia from Final Fantasy 9, I went for a sombre piano and choir vibe. Here’s what I came up with.
Went for something closer to my usual style today, I’ve been playing quite a lot of Faster Than Light recently, so I was imagining some kind of space based game while I was writing. As it happens, I’ve also been doing a bit of playing around with Unity, using Ray Wenderlich’s online course. So, after I’d written some music, I decided to make a looping version (and a couple of quick sfx) and implement them in the demo of “Space Debris”. Here’s a screen capture of what I made:
The sound design is still pretty rough and ready, and I have only implemented single sounds for now, but I’ll share a more polished version here once I’ve finished it up. The full piece of music is on my soundcloud page here:
