Day 21 : The 21-day Composition Challenge

2018-09-29T16:53:03-07:00July 21st, 2018|Categories: Blog, Composition Challenge|Tags: |

I did it, we did it!! Today is the last day of "The 21-day Composition Challenge"! Today, I chose the following challenges to celebrate: The 21-day Composition Challenge Sweet, Sweet Victory: Write a short, celebratory fanfare to play after the successful completion of a quest or battle. BOSS FIGHT - The Whole Shebang: Write a piece that utilizes all of the instruments in a modern orchestra. No whining about your sample library; this is an exercise in orchestration - NOT audio engineering. Start with a solid tune and then orchestrate - do NOT start with a blank session with every [...]

Day 20 : The 21-day Composition Challenge

Day 20, one more to go! Today, I originally picked the following quest : Deep Dive: So many games have a token water-level that subjects the player to infuriating, one- time game mechanics set to a soothing aquatic soundtrack. Write that tune! I choose a good sound that I thought I could use for the piece. And I created the arpeggio. Then, while listening to the arpeggio, my imagination expanded and I thought it may be fun to make this piece a song of Siren (or mermaid).  So, I changed my challenge to: The Julie Andrews: Use a human voice [...]

Day 19 : The 21-day Composition Challenge

Day 19! Two more to go! Today, I decided to try the following challenge from "Quest Logs" Level 5 : Samurai Joe: The scene you must score is a cutscene during which the main character is being told the story of a legendary Samurai hero. When I see the word "Samurai", I imagine Shakuhachi. So, I loaded a Shakuhachi instrument (VENTUS Shakuhachi by Impact Soundworks) to my DAW.  To go along with it, I also loaded some Koto sounds.  This one, I just created some chord progressions, then improvised melodies with Shakuhachi sounds. Each instrument has its own "phrasing" and [...]

Day 18 : The 21-day Composition Challenge

Today's challenge is another interesting one! Using the following concept art created by Kate Miterko and make music This artwork is for an upcoming game that is currently operating under the code name "Trinity." Description of the environment is: “The environment is a dark, mysterious forest, with strange pods networked through the trees surrounding an abandoned warehouse." Although I see the light in the picture, from the description I thought the music should be a little on the dark side. After looking at the picture for a while, I decided to use strings (ppp long tone, cluster, effects, etc), [...]

Day 17 : The 21-day Composition Challenge

2018-09-29T16:51:06-07:00July 17th, 2018|Categories: Blog, Composition Challenge|Tags: |

Today I tried something I’ve never tried before: Reverse the existing piece and make music with it.  Today’s challenge is this : The Flip Side: Take a melody that you’ve written and invert it, reversing the direction of all intervals. Write a new piece based on this inversion. To be experimental, I used my Day 2’s track for this. At first, I inverted the melody.  But it’s kind of close to when I did "Taco Cat" challenge, just creating a counterpoint for the inverted melody and decorating the track. So I decided to go further and reversed the sound itself. [...]

Day 16 : The 21-day Composition Challenge

Day 16! Almost there! Today I picked up the following quest form "Quest Logs" Level 5: Powered-Up: Write a short, 10-seconds-or-less musical cue for when a character gets a major upgrade or power-up. When I saw the quest, a melody started to play in my head. I opened my DAW and just recorded the melody with piano sound first. Then, I thought that the melody I made would fit well with 8bit / chiptune sound! I loaded "Super Audio Cart" to my DAW and created three tracks to make the piece retro-style. It became a simple but cheerful fanfare! Here's [...]
