  10. Now that 2018 has officially begun, we will like to let everyone know that during the first semester of this new year, we will not be uploading, composing or arranging anything. Instead, we are going to work on a new project: OST Videogame Analysis. This project is going to consist of us writing each month a review/analysis about the way music was composed, used and conceive for a specific video game. We will be analyzing 6 to 7 games in total and the idea is to write short, well consistent and deep full reviews that anyone can read, musician and not musicians, so keep an eye up for this project.

    As always the links to those works will be posted here and they will be found in the Project section of our Official Webpage.

  11. GAMING (REGGAE) MUSIC

    Arrangements of three different music pieces (Click Clock Wood, Hornet and Bloody Tears) from three video games (Banjo Kazooie, Hollow Knight and Castlevania II: Simon's Quest) into three different Reggae genres  (Rock/Reggae, Dance Hall and Dub Reggae) to give each  of them  a unique sound, treatment, and atmosphere, as well as to explore different Reggae elements and techniques that could be applied to video game soundtracks.

    BLOODY TEARS

    Bloody Tears is one of the most iconic songs not only in the Castlevania series but also in the whole video game industry. This song debuted in  Castlevania II: Simon's Quest and since then has made an appearance in almost every Castlevania game in the franchise.  The song has a very characteristic melody and is one of the most recognizable musical pieces in video games. Since the song has had a lot of arrangements, we decided to work with the original one, that was composed using only chiptunes. This arrangement was not so difficult to develop and the song really adapts well to almost any musical genre. In this case, we decided to work with Dub, more specifically, Dub-Reggae that is a sub-genre of Reggae music. This genre consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings and is achieved by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals from an existing music piece and emphasizing the drum and bass parts.

    MEGALOVANIA

     

    This fabulous arrangement of one of the most renown Undertale Theme was done by applying different elements found in the Jazz standard: Hay Burner - Sammy Nestico. By analyzing this musical piece and understanding its characteristics, we were able to apply some of those concepts and techniques found in Swing to this project and create this marvelous piece. During the development of this arrangement some other elements from Rock, Shuffle, and Pop were taken into account. The song acquired its own personality, style, and sound that blended perfectly with those other musical genres. In simple words, an awesome Megalovania arrangement.

  15. GAMING (REGGAE) MUSIC

    Arrangements of three different music pieces (Click Clock Wood, Hornet and Bloody Tears) from three video games (Banjo Kazooie, Hollow Knight and Castlevania II: Simon's Quest) into three different Reggae genres  (Rock/Reggae, Dance Hall and Dub Reggae) to give each  of them  a unique sound, treatment, and atmosphere, as well as to explore different Reggae elements and techniques that could be applied to video game soundtracks.

    HORNET

    Hornet is the name of one of the only few companions you have during Hollow Knight, the first game to be released by Team Cherry, an Indie Video Game Studio from Adelaide, South Australia. Her music and the music of the entire game has a unique Classical style that helps bring the world of Hollow Knight to life. When Christopher Larkin decided to create this OST, he wanted to make the Piano and the Cello the main instruments, and this gave the whole project a very warm and emotional aspect and sensation. This song, that is the musical theme of Hornet, was a challenge to arrange, mostly because adapting a Classical Musical Piece into a Dance Hall brought with it some issue that had to be resolved to create what we wanted. The instrumentation, the tempo and the even the main riff had to be modified in a way that it could maintain the original idea while fitting perfectly into a musical genre that has nothing to do with the original one. The final result is one of the best arrangements that we have done and one of our favorite. The use of Electronic sound and instruments, mix with everything that makes the original piece great, resulted in a spectacular and very original piece that will take you back to Hollow Knight's World in a new, unique and exciting way.

  16. GAMING (JAZZ) MUSIC

    Arrangements of three different music pieces (Snowdin Town, Megalovania, and Green Hill Zone) from two video games (Undertale and Sonic The Hedgehog) into three different Big Band formats using different Jazz styles (Ballad Swing, Swing and Latin Jazz) to give each  of them  a unique sound, treatment, and atmosphere, as well as to explore different Jazz elements and techniques that could be applied to video game soundtracks.

    GREEN HILL ZONE

    This arrangement explores the world of  Latin Jazz and tries to impregnate some of it to a very popular song from the video game Sonic The Hedgehog, Green Hill Zone. We took different elements of Latin Jazz from: Tiger Of San Pedro - John LaBarbera. This composition has a unique feel in its rhythmic and harmonic construction by adding Jazz elements such as 7th cords, standard Latin Jazz Backgrounds, and rhythmic patterns, as well as a semi-traditional Big Band instrumentation while maintaining what makes this song great... Its melody.
