I just finished the "loopable" version of my track Fairy Forest (I've already posted it here). I think it's much worse than the full version :(


To be honest I think both versions are really good! The first one had a percussion and guitar part, but the second one works just as well for a more "peaceful" environement. I'd use both of them in a game, just in different situations (for example the second one for when the player is walking around and the first for a fight in the forest).

Welcome, my new track of wonders!


So.


Judging by the picture I imagine this is a song that plays when the player dies (or the situation is dire). So you made your song very dissonant.


But it doesn't really work; here's why:


Using dissonance is complicated, you don't just throw notes around to make it sound horrible. Dissonance works best for creating tension, but that (often) implies some kind of release. There can be a majority of dissonance to create more tension than release, but if there's only dissonant chords without structure, it doesn't work in my opinion.


Hope this helps (and that I didn't sound too harsh) ^_^


---


Here's something I've been working on myself, I'm not too happy with the second part and don't know how to make it better / continue the song




(please excuse me for that horrifying picture)

@Kvothe @Tirian Thank you for your kind words! :D

Here it my last song created for my book's history
I really like the song but the high notes from 2:15 . They're too high to me :p

Here's something I've been working on myself
That cover tho XD Er~ I agree with you, I expected something different in the second part. Btw, what libraries or VSTs did you use ?

Hi, I'm a Norwgian gamemusic composer and guitarist located in London. I would love to write more music for games and I'm a big fan of the Adventure and RPG genres. I've recently been working on small pieces as a showcase:
 




I'm currently working on some orchestral metal pieces, for dark and powerful battle/combat music, which I will upload soon! I also do audio effects, like abmbience or specific foley. If you like what you hear or have any questions, don't hesitate pm me or email me at: tormod.garvin@hotmail.com

Man, it has been forever since I shared something here! Life... Love it and hate it at the same time :D


I decided to restart with my 60 minute challenges :D I created a small app that gives me a completely random assignment (often impossible like in this case). I present you: Chicago Is Great! My first time writing Chicago blues.

If you want to check the "app" (=advanced excel sheet) go here.

Hey, been a while
So I can finally record guitars. I am kind of bad, so be kind (but critics about recording and mixing are welcome)

Nice! I heard some issues with the melody. It clashed with the riff a bit but with more work it will be good =) The quality was good, tone of the guitar was really cool. Just pay attention to the balance in the mix – both in volume and panning. I suggest having two guitar tracks that are similar in tone but not the same. Pan them hard left and hard right.

@YagamiKyo Not bad! I'm not very knowledgeable with guitars considering I've never tried composing with them. But, I like it. A major is an interesting key to start with. This sounds like it'd be in a Sonic game (when they were actually good :aswt:).

@taistelusopuli Thanks! I actually have two guitar tracks with the same tone panned left and right for rhythm. I didn't think about doing it for the lead as well. And yeah, it was just a simple test, so not a lot of mixing. I learnt that recording is pretty hard, considering haha

@HexMozart88 Thanks! Glad you like it. Being compared to good Sonic feels good

Hi there!

Very new to the forums so apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place!

As well as making a game on MV I'm in a band called "The Working Man" and we have just released our new EP "I can't believe it's not dogger"
We're an alternative rock band from the U.K and our lyrics can be very naughty at times but the characters in the songs are the inspiration for my game.
The songs are currently being reworked into an 80's synth sort of style for the game and each Boss will have his own "Theme Music"
Anyway here's a link if anyone fancies a listen, cheers!

Whats up guys and gals? I am an experienced musician starting to compose, and was wondering if anyone could give me some support/feedback on my first published Fantasy track!


If you ever want to discuss music or have me write something for your game feel free to dm me.

I hope you won't mind if I share not one music, but a whole album I've been working on for a while. Hope you will like it
I gave your album a listen, and I must say it's very interesting.
The ambience is really nice, it feels tense and overall enjoyable (That last piano song man <3).
You should be careful though, as some songs were clipping at time, so check your mix before exporting your songs.
Also the songs seemed a bit out of place, by that I mean there wasn't any noticeable link between each song (even a crossfade would have done the job, as some songs just stopped instantly).

But yeah, good work!

Really muddy low-end, EQ the low frequencies out of instruments that don't need them (even the bass doesn't need to have such low frequencies, I find that my bass can start at 50 Hz at least)
The melody on the guitar is good (and no, you're not "kind of bad"). If you really wanted to make it more interesting I'd avoid staying too much on the half-beats, add some grace notes and stuff, as it can sound "MIDI" very quick.

Very nice! Will the game OST have vocals as well or is it only going to be an instrumental remix?

Low end is really loud, with orchestral songs you want brighter mixes.
Also I'm hearing some clipping, be careful with that.
But still, nice song! I'd definitely see that being used in a game.

As for me I haven't been active recently in terms of music, I released a song only yesterday after two months of absence.
But this song I released is a very important one for me, as I worked on it for several months. It's a remix of Lionhearted by Porter Robinson, in an orchestral style.
Hope you enjoy it! :)

@TheBigBadWolf I agree with Tirian. It's a good song but it sounds really loud.
@Tirian It's a beautiful remix. I like it.


Er~ Here's a demo of a track I'm working on (I'm out of ideas for now). Serveral notes are out of key and I intended to do that but it doesn't work as I expected.

No vocals just instrumental, I don't know why but I can't stand voices in games or vocals in the songs haha.

This song is from video game Shadow of the Ninja by Natsume. I love the boss battle theme but I made the arranged.....remade....I donno but it's not 8-bits sounds. Lower the tempo, lower the key, with electric guitar and piano....

Wait.....I posted it before....I forgot.
