  1. So, in my English class, we read Antigone. And one student wasn't sure what to do for the project we had assigned to us. So my teacher said, "Just work on your strengths, make a little game out of it." So he did. And I did the music for this small project. Just a title screen and overworld. But it was pretty fun. Here they are: Game Project Overworld Theme Game Project Title Theme Just thought I'd share this fun little thing I did.
  2. No problem, I'm sure when this reaches the judges it'll go in. If it doesn't, I'll be sad.
  3. 3. completed

    You've got some good reharmonization things going here. I'm into it.
  4. I'm working on arranging something that started out as jazz, but eventually turned more and more funky, and I think it would suit me to have people that are more experienced than I help explain to me just how exactly to keep a groove interesting and going. The drums and bass obviously have a lot to do with it, but in a matter of complenting it with other parts I feel like I'm struggling with. Matching up the timings, sure, but any other advice?

    Hylian Lemon, you never cease to disappoint. I think it's coming out great so far. Definitely sounds like something that might come from F-Zero with the frantic direction you're taking it in (not to mention those sweet SNES-esque samples). I'm always a huge fan of your stuff and I don't think this will end up being any different. Or maybe the samples are more Genesis style now that I think about it.
  6. Alright, haha. I'll write you in on my brainstorming ideas page! I'll keep you updated as things move along. I play piano, so currently I'm arranging that and working outwards. Drums and bass after. Trumpet, horn, and sax now after those. I think that'll be it. Maybe I'll add guitar in there.
  7. Hey there! I'm currently arranging a jazz remix of "Break the Targets!" from Super Smash Bros. Melee, and I was wondering if you would be interested in doing some sax work for it? Right now I'm just taking a lot of time and putting a lot of thought into the arrangement process. But I think it would benefit me to have a sax. I'll probably also have trumpet and french horn.
  8. Ah, you know what, if this ends up happening, count me in. If you need a pianist.
  9. I know you didn't ask me, but here: https://www.musictheory.net/lessons Learning music is something that takes time. Time and effort. Especially piano. Piano, is in my opinion, the hardest instrument to master. But, that doesn't mean it's impossible. Sure, your stuff may not be great, but keep at it, and each day, it'll get better. If you have any questions about music theory, you can feel free to ask me. That's a personal invitation.

    Essentially. I play piano, so if I were to do something with that, say a chord progression or rhythm, or anything really. I'd play through it once, but then the second time I might change the voicings or switch up the rhythm just to make it less "the same as before." Just keeps the listener engaged, really. Looping stuff isn't inherantly bad, if there's something that needs to keep a certain rhythm or feeling/emotion. What I see, though, sometimes is just people looping something to get "more" song.
  11. 1. work-in-progress

    My input: never, ever loop, copy/paste, repeat something for the sake of making it longer. Always try to come up with something new. Looping just makes things bland.
  12. Artists never get enough credit for what they do. I like this, this is really intricate and well made. It's interesting with all the different parts working together.
  13. In my opinion, brass and strings really don't sound all that great unless they're live. Plugins just can't get the quality and tone out of it exactly, I feel.

    @DJ H0us3C0rP3 So the delay you're hearing is on purpose. If I remember correctly, it's a cannon, when one voice plays the same melody shortly after another? Maybe I should take some reverb out there so it doesn't sound so muddy.
  15. I'm working on something new and I like how it's turning out so far. I wanna take this somewhere not wholly conservative lol. Most recent version: Source:
