"Based somewhere at the bottom levels in the Lair of Deviance. Different kinds of sounds, misplaced notes, timpani, strings and of course the never-ending line of curse words can be heared, when stepping in. At some point, however, the notes are composed to songs and songs to symphonies. You stand at the small deck, where a small sign with Antic Runes names it to 'work in process/finished songs'."

So indeed, this topic familiarizes you with some musical (masterpieces) I've done.

There are now two types. First is the "Lurking" cave theme, which has been collecting spider webs quite some time Big grin

Now the other is "Daialos". Scifi themed music composition, which is a combination of two my themes.

Hope, you enjoy. More incoming in time Big grin

Both were good, but I liked the first better. Man, I wish I could write my own music. Oookay...

The composition is really simple, but that's not always a bad thing when you're trying to accomplish atmosphere.

This music... Totally left off by pure inspiration. Actually I had the mouse in hand and I just stuffed stuff to the percussion section...

And from there it took off. Sometimes the inspirated pieces are the best pieces, there is. Happy

Somewhere between Techno de Chocobo and a Yoshi theme that I can't quite place (Super Mario RPG or M&L Superstars, maybe?). It ends rather abruptly. If it's supposed to loop there, then you should copy the song onto itself to give us one loop (or maybe you did and I didn't notice).

Your style sure is simple. Though the melodies are very simple (sometimes a little boring I'd add), the bass sounds are far more interesting. For this matter, I rated all of your songs above average Wink I especially like the first because it gets that "dark glow".
For the second, its a sort of progressive semi-dance kinda tune, not bad, but if you're heading that way: add drums. Drums are usually what makes a dance track. If it was an attempt at a more orchestral piece, replace the current track of lead with something more "stringy" and add some orchestration chords.

Last one is VERY random. At least you get drums this time. Truly sounds like a chocobo kinda theme. Not very my kind of song so not mine to comment on.

Good work overall, I'd really try to add orchestration and drums to all of this if I were you, but that's just my 2 cents Wink

It is a loop. Actually I got bored in the ending part and just copied the first part. Basically at the point, where only the percussion starts playing, it's the beginning of the another part.

And yes, when I finally finished, I realized: "Dang, that's so Super Mario."

Not that it's a problem, though Big grin
