  1. Finally, This is the completed 30 Minutes of Action Music I have been composing for a long time. Mostly composed using Ableton the 30 minutes includes suspense and almost frightening like build ups. It includes very sudden or "exciting" key changes that reminds everyone of the peak of an action movie or a war movie, going up a minor 3rd interval in a huge key change C to Eflat for example can give the audience a real engaging rush. Going up a semi tone like a key change builds tension if written appropriately, it must be composed very carefully to achieve this "EPIC" thrilling key change. Then changing up a full tone. changing keys up a tone if done well can give a simular effect however relies heavily on orchestration and careful phasing from the instruments to resolve/build the suspense up a tone.
  2. I could include the pdf score if anyone is interested. But it isn't designed to be physically played; the jumps are too big for hands so it's intent is electronic. I can think of some ways that I could improve it but for now comment, enjoy[?] and lose yourself in my pretty strange, self-taught methods for piano composing!
  3. (Above is just a visualization image, not my game) This is an accompanying tense music for a scene on my game where the player is investigating a mysterious town in the outlands where there have been reports of cult activities. This is track meant to be faded in and out at certain intervals only. It is a space filler.
  4. I've always been a big radio fan. It's fun to hear weird stuff while driving in your car at night. Alone on the turnpike, searching for the right station. This is a radio play and a mashup of my own music along with material from the old days of radio. Oldtimeradiofans.com sez the material is in the public domain. I'm not so sure ... but here it is. Other effects are from the BBC Sound Effects Library.
  5. I pose this not as a question, but as the title to an article I recently finished on the topic that might be of interest to people here. I take a look at the instrumentation and musical ideas of cinema horror music and break them down. I'd be interested in any additional thoughts people have on the topic. Cheers!
