  1. Hey guys! I haven't posted here since 2006 and back then I was just browsing and not sharing much. Since then I've been practicing composing a bit of music myself. Mainly motifs for my original cartoon/puppet characters (yes, I build puppets now.) I consider myself a total novice as I can't play any actual instrument and cannot read sheet music for the life of me. I literally just plug notes into the FL studio piano roll until it sounds like music. I'm working with free sound fonts too. So my music is pretty much midi sounding. Anyways I figure I'd share my latest composition. It's a solo piano suite of my main character's motif/theme. The backstory is that my character spent 28 years composing it and considers it his masterpiece. He plays it when he's got free time or if he want's to creep out his guests. His theme is essentially an original russian/soviet sounding march, but in this I gave it many variations. From Bach, to Mozart to even a waltz. I tend to compose music in 3 genres: Russian military, German polka and evil circus music. I suck at mixing/mastering/ orchestrating so go easy on me. I'm trying to learn more. Music isn't my main focus but I figure it's a good skill to have. Let me know what you think. Also I'm open to collaboration too. I have a bunch of unused songs/lyrics and a few ideas for video game musical numbers. Mainly Rare ltd and donkey kong country inspired. Thanks EDIT: For the record I HAVE NO IDEA if this is actually in F minor. The only reason it's titled that is because he says the F word a lot. If anyone can tell me what key it's in I'm all ears.
  2. Hey guys, I'm fairly new here and am just getting started on making original compositions for video games! I made a couple of tracks so far but may need an extra ear to see whether I'm heading in the right direction. Castor's theme attempts to exemplify the logical demeanor of "a man of few words", cold and calculating. Miranda, on the other hand, is a serene yet unyielding spirit. She represents a peaceful return from calamity, a gentle affirmation of small victories. In other words, the Kairi to your Sora for KH fans! Lastly, last chance plays when circumstances have turned for the worst and the protagonists must overcome their plight in absolute desperation I would love to hear what you all think! In the meantime, I'll continue making music as always. Thanks! Jescmo
  3. This post was originally about all of my original music being uploaded to Youtube, but I decided to wipe it all off of there due to it's low popularity. So instead this will be about all of my original music on Bandcamp. Listed below are all of my original albums for download. In the Beginning (1997-2000) ~ Everything was written and recorded on a Yamaha MU100R synthesizer. Link : https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/album/in-the-beginning Dreams (2001-2007) ~ Mostly softer electronic music. Link : https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/album/dreams Beyond (2001-2007) ~ Mostly harder electronic and progressive trance music. Link : https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/album/beyond Bits (2011) ~ Some random electronic music. Link : https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/album/bits Above (2015) ~ Newest music. Combination of trance, electronic, and orchestral. Link : https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/album/above
  4. I wanted to ask for an opinion on a couple of my original pieces. They're Kingdom Hearts based but are more in my own style than Yoko's. Advice for improvement/constructive criticism is highly appreciated (just try to be nice). Here's an attempt at RPG music I did this weekend. It's a theme for both Marluxia (Kingdom Hearts COM) and to a lesser extent, General Grievous (Star Wars). I usually make my own motifs when writing music but I occasionally use bits of existing motifs (depending on the character). Tell me what you think (I've gotten a little less repetitive over time). Here's a boss theme for Maleficent and Pete in KH3. Enjoy!
  5. Here's a song I did as a tribute to Japan.
  6. An instrumental I threw together using FL Studio after I stumbled on a chord I liked. Has a trippy psychedelic, hip hop vibe to it. Uses a combo of standard drumsets, about 3 synthesizers, and an 808 plus a few plugins. Enjoy.
  7. https://kingtiger.bandcamp.com/album/foul My first original rap song! It's a drumstep-esque EDM with a slick flow on top. It's $.50 (make sure you use the coupon/promo code "foulmsrp" in checkout or else it'll charge you $1.00). Please give it a listen and maybe even buy it! Here's a SoundCloud player:
  8. Hello OC Remix community, I've been itching to do an OC remix for a very, very long time (I think I was introduced to it around 2000). In the meantime, I thought I'd jump into the fray and share an original piece I did earlier this year. I'm a huge fan of film scores from the 80's, and composed a horror/sci-fi/thriller piece with flavors of Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter. Looking forward to my first remix, but until then, I hope you enjoy this pulsing, suspenseful, dark synth track. Best, Meg
  9. Over the years, I've written a fair number of original songs. Some got done, some got half-way finished, and others didn't get beyond even the first 15 seconds. But I kept making them, and going back at times to work on ones that I'd started, but never finished. Oddly enough, it was while I was working on a remix last year that had way too much original stuff to be a remix anymore (for Vampire Variations III) that I finally just said the hell with it, cancelled that remix so I could make it a wholly original song, and began listening to the done and unfinished tunes I'd made in the past. I began thinking about which ones I'd like to tackle in terms of updating and/or finishing, and wound up doing not only that, but writing several brand new songs that came to me as I was working. The end result, is "The Journey Vol.1." This is an album with music that was inspired by various parts of the novels I've been working on, covering moments that were happy, sad, and points in-between. The style of the music is basically classical or ensemble, with piano, orchestration, and even some chamber-esque music. I'm pretty proud of the end result, and can't wait to get going on Vol. 2 once I've given myself a little break (this was WAY bigger of a project than I thought it would be). You can find the album on both Bandcamp and CDBaby (link coming once it's live) for $5, with 11 main tracks and 2 bonus tracks. Here's the first single from it, "A Mother's Last Lullaby." https://soundcloud.com/dragonwolfdesign/a-mothers-last-lullaby With that, here's a link my Bandcamp page. Hope you guys enjoy the album https://dragonwolfdesign.bandcamp.com/album/the-journey-vol-1 http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/mtyankovich1
  10. Hey guys, I've been working on a game for the last 2 years and we're in need of at least one more composer. Before I lose your interest, you can check out a video of the game in action at the link below: If I had to quickly sum things up, I'd say it's like... -a virtual world come to life, with a character driven story -entirely hand drawn 2D animation -gameplay that evokes platformers like Mega Man Zero and Kirby Superstar... -but also fighting games like SF: Third Strike, Marvel 3, and Guilty Gear. -with a heavy emphasis on a team of playable characters that are entirely unique from one another. If you'd like to learn a bit more about the story and characters, you can check out my patreon over here: https://www.patreon.com/hybridmink?ty=h ---------------------------------------------------- You might notice the music in the background of the video above. It was composed by Rozen, who's on board for composing some of the more epic and dramatic pieces in the game. We're also working with the Cynic Project who's posted a couple mixes on OCR before. He's handling the more electronic and trance pieces. However, at least half of Rudra's music needs to rock. Something along the lines of Mega Man and Sonic with some punk and metal mixed in. After speaking with both artists, we decided that we basically need a guitarist. While I definitely have some people in mind, I've found over the past couple years that it's better to reach out to a community that I love and actually find people that really want to work with you. So I of course turn to OCR, the site that's provided a substantial chunk of my music collection for the past 15 years. If you are interested at all, please let me know by replying in this thread or simply emailing me at: hybridmink (at) gmail (dot) com I'd love to talk to anyone interested, though I'd just ask that you provide a couple examples of your previous work. Full disclosure, we are planning on having a kickstarter in August. The goal is to have at least one more track (on top of what Rozen and Cynic Alex are working on) ready for the trailer. Thanks for reading this far and I hope to hear from you soon! If you have any questions about the game, characters, or scope, don't hesitate to ask. -Nick
  11. Instrumental I came up with using trumpets. Also includes Sax, Electric Guitar, Standard Drums, 808 snares, and some synthesizers. Has chill but kind of head bobbing feel. Could use some feedback. Thanks for listening
  12. Hello guys ! I just released my 1st album and wanted to share it here ^^ Even if it's an original album, you can feel it was greatly inspired by video games ! I'm sure some of you found out where the album's title comes from You can stream all the tracks from Bandcamp and of course buy it if you wish to support a young artist (if you do, you can use the code "escape" to get 50% off until the end of March) If you really like it but you can't pay for it, just leave me a message and i'll send you a link to a free download... in exchange for your impressions
  13. Aside from 2 Remix WIPS, I have two Original Tracks uploaded to Soundcloud for all to enjoy! Let me know what you all think. I'm still working on the details to mixing with Cubase, but I feel like these are coming along nicely.
  14. This is an original piece I did for a friend of mine who goes by the name "Munnbun". In case you guys were curious, that is his art. Glorious, ain't it? Her name is Sarah, and this is the first version of her theme. I'll be making more themes for his characters in the future. You can check out his page and his art here:www.facebook.com/Munnbun/ Hope you guys enjoy! Copyright © 2015 by Saitoshi All rights reserved.

  15. Hello OC Remix! Back in 2002 I wrote a nine minute classical piece using Noteworthy Composer to coincide with a fiction I was writing. Noteworthy Composer is known as strictly a notation software but would be able to play songs written in it through basic MIDI (e.g. Microsoft Wavetable Synth); thus, the song was written but not produced. After many years of not working on music, I recently bought some music production equipment and FL Studio. I have written a few remixes and original pieces but they have not been up to par with the quality of most remixes on OC Remix. However, I decided to finally produce this orchestral piece. The result is awesome! I also recorded my own clarinet playing. Please take a listen and let me know what you think. Following is the link to Sound Cloud: https://soundcloud.com/tonal_bliss/remorse-nothing-more-chapters-1-4 I am hoping to further improve my classical/orchestral producing and writing abilities in the near future. I am planning on doing a orchestral remix/arrangement of a video game theme. I'd love to submit that to OC Remix when I'm done. Thank you for your time.
  16. Hello, first time posting something original here but I'm quite happy with this one, though the military drums at the beginning still sound kinda shit. It's an 80s new retro wave inspired generally upbeat track with voice samples from Harry S Truman, George Bush, Lawrence Krauss, Jeanine Pirro and of course Donald Trump, to bring in a very happy new year to civilization. https://soundcloud.com/fraser-jennison/ad2016
  17. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bz9wR2QXakXiZmNZN3Z2OEd0ajg&usp=sharing I figured I'd share a couple of my new projects. You can see a change in the line art starting around "Project 10" or the one of Piccolo from "Dragon Ball Z". I finally started using 300p resolution for my drawings around the time I started that one. I wish I could've done that for the "Street Fighter V" drawing I made (Imagine how much better it could've looked; also lazy-eye Ken). "Project 12" (the Smash Bros. one with the random fox-guy/my pseudo-mascot) was actually a collaboration, between me and UK artist John Baker (better known as "Deamondante", who can be found on deviantART). Of course he did most of the work, I mostly made fixes, such as to my own character, adding in Pikachu (for a 4-Player Smash), and of course making Link look more like, Link XD Anyways enjoy the drawings and let me know if you have any album covers or posters you want me to work on.
  18. https://app.box.com/s/mkepvu033ia2lys8g9dqaxa1ic9kjq1m This is something i started working on some time ago, as some sort of experiment. I just recently discovered it again and decided to expand it a bit and also improve the mixing/mastering. There is no melody, it's just some kind of electronic soundscape. Feel free to leave a comment/critique
  19. Hey guys, lil bit of background before I post the track. Background in a lil bit of music, my mom was a piano teacher, so got started on that at an early age. Tought myself guitar. Still kinda suck at that. Bought FL Studio about a year ago, dabbled in it, picked up a old Yamaha keyboard with MIDI out to try to make some tunes, as well as a Blue Yeti for the aforementioned terrible guitar playing. Finally decided earlier this week that I would suck it up and make use of the $200 I threw at FL Studio, and make something I would be proud of showing off, and possibly sell if people thought it would be worth it. That being said, I've been stalking OCR for years now, just never posted anything. Sixto was the entire reason why I wanted to learn guitar (The Passing of the Blue Crown was and still is one of the most-played tracks on my iTunes. :L), and Zircon was the reason I bought FL12 in the first place. Got a ton of respect for you guys, and the community here in general. So, for that reason, I'm asking anybody who's willing to take a listen to a track I'm re-starting work on that I originally slapped together in about a week 5 months ago. Loaded up the file earlier this week and made it a point to start trying to get it perfected, as this was one of the only tracks out of the 300-some I've made since the FL purchase that I've felt had some decent mixing/sound/balancing to it. Streamed/downloaded from Soundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/isaac-doud/infectious Please blow the crap out of it. Anything that can help the mix, I'd greatly appreciate. Anything that stands out with progression, flow, overall mixing (I don't have a pair of studio headphones, using my HyperX Clouds for it, not the best, not the worst), please, if you could take a second of your time to let me know or explain the reasons behind it, I would greatly appreciate it. I know the vocals are sketchy. Probably going to remove them. Using all free stuff that came with FL Studio / can be aquired on teh interwebs so the strings are a bit off (YAY FREE VSTS, QUALITY FTW), working on those right now. Anywho - thanks in advance. Cheers!
  20. https://soundcloud.com/matthew-matriciano/battle-for-the-future Here's a random track I made for fun. All Critique is welcome!
  21. https://soundcloud.com/matthew-matriciano/land-of-frost-village-theme here is a little project I did in one day, it's part of a two part series I'm doing mainly to test the waters of rpg music. All feed back in welcome! Thanks
  22. Hey everyone, so this is an intro theme I composed for a medieval fantasy style game that's currently in development. The game's plot is currently going through some changes that may render this music inappropriate for the game's subject matter so I wanted to share this in case it never sees the light of day otherwise. I tried to keep the dynamics intact so you may have to turn up your speakers a bit more than usual. Anyhow, enjoy! https://soundcloud.com/jeffmatthews/legend-of-avalonia-intro-theme-upcoming-release
  23. Hello. Here are some of my original songs on my sound cloud any feed back would be appreciated! (These are just demos!) https://soundcloud.com/matthew-matriciano The tracks are: Infiltration (stage 5) (Version 2) Blackforrest city Back Alley Beatdown (stage 3) Heroic Journey
  24. ep

Hope you'll like! (Clicking on the artwork takes you directly to the Bandcamp page ^^)
  25. Greetings all, So I had recently released an EP, and I totally forgot that I can share my original work here with you guys...which is awesome because this site and the community are awesome.
