"Outpost" Piano piece for video game I'm working on


Recommended Posts

Hi. I would love to hear any feedback on a piece I made, I can't decide if I like it or not. I don't really know music theory so I'd appreciate simpler pointers if you have any to offer. Thanks!

Ooh, I enjoyed it, sounds very minecrafty! The intro and outro are a bit too independent from the main part, but it also kind of fits the mood. 😀

I think that you should pay more attention to your dynamics. I get the impression from the piece that it should be a pretty static scene.

But remember- the fact it is calm/non-changing scene doesn't force you to make every aspect of the music so.

If you choose to use static harmony, or a repetitive melody- consider changing the dynamics.

I think that you have in mind the idea that the player is going to stay in this scene for quite a while, which is why you added the intro and outro different parts.

Consider making those longer, more developed and yet more lively within themselves. Take this track for example:

It's long so that each part can be played for long enough. It's a folk tune so the harmony is simple, but listen to the melodies, or the dynamics, they do change throughout each part.

Also I'd love to score a video game, so if you want to only partially score it yourself or know other game developers that are looking for composers-

please let me know (by writing @Rabbival507 to make sure I'll know about that.

Very nice! 

It sounded to me more like a mid level pianist improvisation, no "wrong" notes, uses of 7m chords, I minor - V minor progression (correct me if I'm wrong) and motifs line, also I heard one cluster in the good context.

It's nice scoring a video game, personally I'm composing music's for an Unreal Engine actionrpg with online features, it's a really solid game and team. 

 

Wish you good luck!
