It All Went Wrong

A multi-pronged title. For one thing, the arrangement and mechanics feel a bit sloppy. More relevant, the song went rather different than I expected. Set out to make an apprehensive, spacious piece to capture being lost in underground ruins full of monsters. The piece kept devolving, perhaps reminiscent of the darker elements of Undertale. Oh well, I had some fun with it.

Went with something a bit more campfire oriented, something to go with folks swapping stories while the fire dies down into a warm smolder. Much shorter a piece than I like, but sometimes it just tells you when it's done.

Wanted to try something more ominous and dire. Maybe it's because I've been playing Metroid Prime. The dynamics aren't where I want em, but hey.

Never thought I'd compose for dinosaurs. Hauled out some more exotic samples for this. Think I might have made the rhythm wonky in a few spots. Made in vision of the long-dead reptiles lumbering about the prehistoric world in it's fantasy-world-class scenery.

First song I've ever used multiple apostrophes in the title of! When I first heard this delightful song, my mind wandered to a sea shanty of sorts… so I busted out the hurdy-gurdy samples, laid out some droning bass, and this happened. It's a bit slower than the source, but I tried to keep the melody and such faithful so I could focus on better mixing. Maybe it worked. At any rate, hopefully some of it sounds good.

Shores You Left Behind (BONUS ENTRY)

Don't vote for the bonus. Started out wanting to make a sea-shanty of sorts, but got… distracted, partway through. A little piece about leaving familiar things behind, nice as they are, to find new horizons, although you'll always miss what couldn't come with.

More inspired by resource #1. A little journey into the majestic cosmos to find things strange yet familiar before returning with just a little bit of what was found. Kinda wish I had time to flesh out the 2nd half more :P

Goofing around with my newish euro brass samples and those violins I just can't divorce myself from. Got a minute in before I realized the tempo was drastically slower than the originalsc I had some fun. Hope you do listening to it.

Something of a sister song to my piece from last week's contest, stole a number of melodies from it. Just a plucky little ditty for some cold flowers.

First time composing with a time limit. The thing is sloppy as spaghetti, but I kinda like the last couple minutes of it. Hope it doesn't hurt your ears too much.

These Stones Remember

Metroid Prime 3: Bryyo Cliffs. In a world brought low by petty strife, forever scarred, only the stones remember the lost glory of a once great people. Or something like that.
