Finally mastered and finished a thing I really like that I started on a while ago. In which it becomes abundantly clear that I listen to Sigur Rós:

I had a lot of fun experimenting with this one. I like that it's kind of muffled and distorted, I think the effects I was able to produce starting around halfway are interesting and evocative. Sure I have lots to learn and will come back to this in 3 years and hate it, but right now I think it's PRETTY DAMN RAD, so. :cool:

Awesome work! It's really great to hear this all polished up with those warm pads supporting the low end and those quiet, bright synth textures help add a lot of energy.

Sooooo for some reason I never posted this here? Back in January at the 2nd global game jam I went to I composed 3 pieces for our game, and I linked to the game but nOT THE OST VID OF MUSIC I COMPOSED FOR IT

[MEDIA=youtube]PvjqfKe5XGM[/MEDIA]

BOOM!!! Best track is the nighttime/combat one at 3:12, but I have all 3 for good measure because I'm still quite satisfied with what I came up with all around.

Daytime theme (0:32) may or may not have been heavily inspired by the Luin BGM in ToS. Whoops.

You know it was remarkably easy to pick out this melody on cello. I'm sure that's mostly because it's very tonic and simple, but I'm also sure that my hands remember playing this song on cello about 10 years ago when I first fell in love with FMA and was starting out my habit of playing anime and game songs on piano/cello.

Anyway, I kind of want to make a more published cover of this theme sometime, but I'm still happy with this quick rendition I recorded while practicing today.

Oh wow! That was a really nice cover. I've been putting it off, but I really should check out more of your music.
