hopefully the game that I am writing music for will have a web release by the ned of May! Woop! The game is still very much in development and testing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t work hard and meet the deadline!
You can come play the game at tomkail.com/trance.
Please feel free to make suggestions and let us know your over-all opinion of the game on twitter to either me (@Belchism) or Tom (@tomkail)
Heres a few ”Screenshots” from my Birthday party last Friday! Obviously It was Videogame themed. The characters are as follows:
Misty (Pokemon), Chell (Portal), Mario (Mario) Pikachu (Pokemon), Elizabeth and Booker DeWitt (Bioshock Infinite), Splicer (Bioshock), 2 NPCs, “Some character from Tekken” (Tekken) Knuckles(Sonic 3) & “Some character from Dynasy Warriors”
Followed by Slenderman
Then Misty and Altair (Assassins Creed), Misty, Elizabeth & Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
then “A character from Samurai warriors”
And finally Me and my girlfriend as Aries (Final Fantasy VII) and Knuckles (Sonic 3)
Awesome! hope y’all enjoyed the view!
I managed to buy Dissidia Final FantasyLimited Edition for only £15! awesome!
I’m gonna have a run down of all my current projects.
Firstly and most importantly is the music that I’m writing for My buddys game “Trance” Which can be played here: http://tomkail.com/trance/ It seems that I may now have some competition in composing for this game as some others have offered to write for it as well.
Next I have the theme tune and Credit song for a different friends web series, called wasted, all about two drunks who get especially drunk one fine evening and awaken in a weird new world. I havent received the story board for the intro yet so I can’t compose it properly, but I can draft some random Ideas.
Finally I have my personal Vlog entitled “The Hedgehog Initiative: Genesis”, where I take the original Sonic the Hedgehog Music and Rock it up somewhat. I have recently uploaded my rendition of the boss theme and Final zone’s music in a medley called “Ro-Boss-Nik” (Original, I know) and that can be listend to here: https://soundcloud.com/belchism/ro-boss-nik-robotniks-themes
ASide from all this I compose little tidbit here and there to keep myself amused, but I am certainly keeping busy, what with holding down a job as well.
If you know anyone that wants some music composed for some form of media, please, refer them to me as I don’t charge and have been commended for my musical writing capabilities.
Finally! Here it is! A Medley of both Robotnik’s themes from Sonic the Hedgehog for the SEGA Megadrive, Originally Composed By Masato Nakamura.
I love these songs, and I think that guitar with strings and Choir really brings out the epicness of these songs.
Its time for more Ideas! I have really loved the scenarios I have been given so far. They have been very strange, but thats the kind I like. I aim to be a composer for videogames one day, and that means making music for abstract situations and weird situations. The music has to be well implemented,and not just layered on top of a FMV.
What scenario, character or event can you guys conjure up this time?
This song describes Two li’l hedgehogs that are deeply in love and want to hug, but they can’t due to their Spines! so they undergo an adventure to find a special coat that they can wear that allows them to cuddle without getting prickled!
