Music!

on: September 12, 2013, 08:48:38 am
Music is essential to any game!

Yamaha keyboards got a lot of instruments to choose from, and I got a word document with all the keys of over 40 scales major/minor.


So post here and ask for an improv of any scale/key, and I will post upon your request either an .mp3 of your chosen quality (ready to go), or a .mus file(sheet music).  If your not specific, don't expect what you're asking for to sound like what you had in your head.  You can't ask someone to draw a skull for you and expect it to turn out exactly like you thought it, you'd have to give dimensions, color pallettes, and an example to get it exact..  Here's a start, for those of you who aren't in the music loop:

:)

I play guitar too! 

I'm pretty good at both.  I can play Song of Healing, Song of Storms, Serenade of Water, for the most part Zelda stuff on piano.  For guitar, I play Angel of Death, Hammer Smashed Face, Raining Blood, mostly Death/Thrash Metal.  I play both instruments many hours a day, to the point of carpal tunnel on cold days :(.  It is a lifestyle I am accustomed to.

I use audacity to edit my files, so if you have, idk, let's say a track that needs a beat, or a beat that needs a track, you can send me the sound file, and I can add onto it in audacity.

Music is essential to any game, and I love this community and thought I'd give out some nice improvisations to some nice people.  No license, the song I make for you is yours for free :)
 



I will help in the order of posted requests, no saying how many I will complete.

Hey!

I appreciate musicians because they understand how music is constructed - something that's always baffled me. And music, constructed well, can be incredibly powerful. And like you point out - music is indeed essential in games.

Gotta like your range in musical experience - from Cannibal Corpse to Zelda soundtracks, haha. Nice.

To be honest, I don't know what that means. But it sounds like you're looking for practice in composing. I'm in the early stages of a long-term game dev project at this time. We plan on some quality bgm's. We'll be creating some progressive tracks (not me, I suck at music). So, I suggest that - something progressive. Something that starts out slowly, calmly, but builds into something louder, more serious, maybe even violent. Goes out with a bang at the end. If synched to a game, you might imagine the protagonist in level 1, eventually reaching the end boss and defeating him/it at the end. As for the scale or key . . . no idea. Start out high-pitched and end with bassy notes . . ? oy . . .

Orrrrrrr, maybe I've misunderstood this thread's intent.

Behold The Sinister Locrian Mode!



5 recordings on there, just kinda winged it.  One of them should sound completely emotionally different from the rest, that is one of the Pentatonic Scales.

I think you get the gist of it.
On your musical idea, makes sense even if it isn't the most musically worded, but maybe you should wait a bit before adding music because the ways music is put into a game can all be very different and hard to work with (I suggest songs that loop).

I also mess around with music, although I don't consider myself good enough to accept work. Maybe something to add would be your musical style? I know you mentioned Metal, but on the keyboard do you play jazzy, classical, or just rock? I love the idea of this anyway.

The music I posted already is up for grabs everybody.  I really tried with the one titled 'the best beast' it's worth a listen if nothing else.

If you like the feel to a certain track, link me to it (YouTube).  I can disassemble it and produce an entirely new song, same progression and key, and on your command, any kind of tweak you want.

...on a side note.  I can speed up/slow down/mix more instruments/add a beat/up the quality on any Of the recordings I posted so far!


I'm surprised nobody is taking advantage of this.

Well, I don't think anyone really has a need this fulfills, per sť. Not just as one-off's.

Here's an idea, if you haven't already thought of it  - hook with someone and do their game's music. Look in here.
