Posting something a little different today. I had a recent commission to write some video game music that was mixed with EDM. This was my kind of mashup so I gave it a go.
Had lots of fun with the production of this. There’s too much to say about what I did as all of the sounds are created from scratch. I’ll include the list of synths I used below and talk a bit about the harmony.
Harmonically this is very simple.
Based in G Major
The counterpoint is also very simple, though I did follow the general rule of moving parts… and there are no parallel chords.
Most of the variation is sonic, I use filters and a lot of plugins that are all automated to create the movement needed in the track. If anyone is interested in this style just message and I can go into more detail about the parts your interested in.
Synths used were
Esx1 and 2
Scheps Omni channel
A lot of izotope stuff
Waves mod rack and all distortion plugins
Filter (always automated.
