So, I kinda wanna put together a small compilation of new instrumental songs, but my inspiration's been really lacking lately for original music. My most recent song kinda sparked the idea to make a compilation of new music. Your comics would essentially fuel what I compose in this instance~
My initial idea was to do something for the comics I'm already reading like I did with Project SHaDe, but I thought it'd be nice to turn it into free tunes for your guys' material I haven't read yet. Plus it gives you a chance to get a new reader outta me so.. yeah! Maybe more if my music changes how one might view your work for the better??? Who knows!
The five comics, their song titles and genre, and uh.. more?
There Was a War by @punkarsenic
"Always is a Very Long Time." (Symphonic, Celtic influences)
Memento Mori - Sin by @AilyneGouveia
"Good Evening, Gentlemen." (Classical Piano, Jazz influences??)
Celestial Chronicle Shion by @Cavechan
"Yet in 2141..." (Ambient, Epic Orchestral, Electronic)
Detox by @tchotchkeco
"Rampaging the Streets" (Synthwave attempt)
Radioactive Underground by @ezzy
"If You Were Alone" (J-Rock attempt, Hard Rock influences)
These are my five picks for music right now. The titles are based off of quotes from the comics, I especially looked for phrases that sounded like they'd fit the tone of the song ideas I had. The genres are based off of what I felt would fit the story as well as challenge my composing ability. Just in the right spot. Not too easy that it'd have no effort put in, but not hard enough to put me off to the idea of writing in new musical headspaces.
For many of the other options I had, the ideas were there, but I couldn't figure out how to properly make it work due my lack of experience in the genres. Though part of me turning down the others also came out of me wanting to get these out as reasonably quick, but the other thing was.. those ideas weren't good enough to me. I had high standards for this, if you're gonna get anything out of me, it's gonna be the very best I can offer. Maybe I'll change my mind and revisit these in the future, but for now.. 5, it is.
There were 5 spots for a free song from me! But there's a chance there might be more! To those who won, I can post WIPs on my Soundcloud if you want and they'll be posted when I feel there's enough to share. If you wanna keep it as a surprise, I'll keep the music to myself until it's completed. Once the songs are finished, I'll share them with all of you here.
Project schedule: Promos, reviews, announcement, music production (current phase, unclear how long this'll take.).
Edit 4: The announcement phase is done! Added my choices and reasoning behind choices for the music I'll be making~
