Ok, I know I didn’t really give feedback to other tracks in this section and that it is required… I hope you guys will believe me when I say that this wasn’t due to “not wanting” to provide feedback but more about the fact that as a Beginner I’m not confident enough in myself as to give feedback to more expert composers as the majority of you probably are. I promise that as I’ll improve I’lòl be more active on this
This is supposed to be a “struggling” piece. A mix of sadness, incertainty but also of courage and “spirit”.
FIrst of all since the game I’m working on at the moment has a sort of sci-fi setting I wanted this to have some sort of Sci-Fi vibe to it, in order to get experience in this specific kind of composition. I took HEAVY inspiration from “Deus Ex - Human Revolution” soundtrack and this piece is in the same key and probably have many elements in common with its main theme song “Icarus”. As I said before, my idea of this was, since I don’t really have enough experience in transforming specific ideas into music, quite abstract: I just knew that I wanted it to have a feeling of sadness, incertainty but also struggle and “spirit” into it. I hope I managed to convain all of these…
The track is in: 4/4 with a “standard” 120 bpm. It’s in the key of G Minor and mainly uses the G Minor chord (in fact almost every note of the song is G Minor). The arpeggiated part also is mainly G Minor but with some slight variations.
The Base, The Bass, The Arpeggio and the Lead were all done by myself with SoundSpot Union wavetable synthesizer.
The Drums are made with the MT Power Drumkit 2, a free drum instrument.
The Vocals are made with the free kontakt player voice library “Arcana”, by EmberTone
