I'm back on the commission grind again, so didn't look at the theme this week and instead took the hour for OHC to sketch out a song for a "round-based arcade game". Still made this in one hour so voting is okay!
This week I am taking a stab at the background music for stage 1 which is a somewhat forest-looking area.
I'm aiming for stage 1 to have a "medium" tempo with stage 2 to have a slower tempo and stage 3 (the final stage) to be faster. I used the pan flute instrument as a lead to set the vibe and tried to use echoey sound effects, but still maintain a pretty punchy beat since the game seems rather action-oriented. Hopefully the soundscape is not TOO full here.
it's the end credits of something. I didn't have enough time to explore more than one melodic idea because I really wanted to polish this one. Consequently, this gets cut off waaaay before I can do anything with it. :(
That's ok though. I feel pretty good about where this piece could go if I had more than an hour, so educational goal accomplished :)
