Battle Theme for "Simply Beautiful". Took me forever to do but I finally decided to just sit down and get it done.

Now I'm not a huge gamer or anything so I don't really know what makes a great rpg battle theme, but I tried to get it so that it's not boring and can repeat indefinitely, and I think I pulled that off pretty well.

This piece is mostly strings with the drums in the background, originally I was gonna go with strings and woodwinds for it but the woodwinds felt kinda pointless cuz you could barely hear em over the strings. So I went with a string quintet, 2 violins, 1 viola, and 2 cellos, since i don't like the sound of the contrabass.

Anyway let me know what you all think, especially you gamers out there, and enjoy.

mmmm

yess....

but.. that also is like saying I got paid today.. but then you use the monies from being paid to like.. buy shit ya want or need to pay or w/e ... so like.. is there an equivalent to that for kudos? o 3o or.. Should there be...? >U>

there should be, someone should make a website where you can actually give people kudos and then they can convert those kudos into prizes
but the kudos have to be reviewed first so people don't just give their freinds a million for doing nothing

Pretty cool for a fateful battle theme, anyway, as long as for the RPGs I've played, this would be something more for an epic boss. Normal enemies usually have a little faster song, but that's just my opinion.
Overall I really like this! :D

well the piece is actually in allegro, that's like 120 beats a minutes, but i kinda slowed it down with the strings a bit i guess ha
yeah after i wrote it i thought it sounded a little bossish, but as long as the make the boss themes more epic than this, it's all good

thanks

Did you use Noteflight? I used it at school (I'm in Orchestra) and it sounds very similar.

and hey cool beans, wish i'd been in orchestra when i was in school, probably woulda done a lot for my composing skills ha

Same here. If you'd care to listen to mine, here is a [link](link). I'm going off the "Uematsu Theory"(Yay for self-coined terms). The first game's music won't be all that great, but the farther you go along, the better it will get. This is the first major game that I'm working on, so, hopefully, in time, things will sound better and better. You can only really go one direction when learning, and that is up.

yeah i'm seriously considering trying to get into video game soundtracks for a living
i mean i'm kinda late into the mix, only been composing for a few years and i don't have much video game knowledge to work off of, but i really like working out soundtracks, and games are cooler and more challenging than movies

ha yeah sad to say i'm not too familiar with uematsu's work, my older bro played final fantasy 7 and i know a few tracks from watching that but that's about it
Yasunori Mitsuda though, if you're not familiar with him you should look him up
he's the guy who did the soundtrack for chrono trigger, and video game music can't get any better than that

wow this post is getting long, that's what happens when i talk music

i like your piece, nicely done
kinda reminds me of an old nes type game, like megaman or something

digitaleva Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
I know of Mitsuda. His work was very nicely done. Wish more people would go that route. Quality over quantity. I have put a cap on the tracks on our soundtrack. we're probably stopping at 24.

Thank you for your opinion on the battle music.

Sounds like a good fighting song to me. It's cool sounding and like the others said: not distracting. I've listened to people making video game songs and they were a little too dramatic

I think the strings set it nice :D Great as always :clap:

That sounds great! I like how it sounds kinda classical and a bit mournful, yet the rhythm in the background keeps it moving. I kept wanting the triplets (or are they dotted quarter notes? It's been a while since I've talked music) to get a little jazzy, but I think it'll be great as it is. You don't want it to distract from the fight, after all ;)
Reply
:iconthepineapplepirate:
ThePineapplePirate Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010  Student Artist
thanks
they're actually dotted eighth notes
yeah i wanted it to be a bit more jazzy but i was having a real hard time coming up with a melody, kinda wrote myself into a corner with the intro and couldn't think or anything ha
but i didn't want it to build up too much so i could repeat it, so i wanted to keep it interesting, but not too interesting

ThePineapplePirate Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010  Student Artist
yeah
wish i'd made it a bit longer though, hopefully it doesn't seem to repetitive
gotta work on doing that more subtly in the future
they should be releasing a demo soonish, not sure if it's for just for people working on the project or what though
i think it'll have my song "a sign of things to come" as the title theme as well, not 100% sure if that's where they're using it though
