I did it!!!
And by 'it', I mean 'managed to make a Flash thing that would basically allow me to submit my musical compositions as deviations'. Of course.
So that's all this thing is. It's a way of submitting music that I composed as a deviation, since the submission of music files isn't allowed.
I'm probably not supposed to be doing this, actually, since music files aren't allowed and I'm basically trying to work around that, but... well. At least two whole people have requested that I try to submit my music as deviations, so I did!
And, uh, yes!
Anyway, please listen to this and tell me what you think. It took me about five days to compose, and I put a lot of effort into it.
Heh, I probably made the 'interface' more flashy than it needed to be...
The quality isn't brilliant because I wanted to keep the filesize low. And the original file was a midi (converted to mp3 since Flash can't import midis...), so its quality wasn't great to begin with anyway.
So yes! Feedback, please!
(Oh, by the way, the file is about 1.7MB, and it doesn't stream, apparently. So, uh, it won't start playing until it's fully loaded. Be patient!)
I know that deviantART isn't a music site, but I do compose my own music for my games, as I have been doing for years now, and I've shown some of that music off here before, which seemed to be at least slightly interesting to some people...
I'd like to think that I've come a long way in terms of compositional ability in recent years, and I'd like my gallery here to at least have some examples of my more recent work, so, uh... I am uploading this!
I composed it months ago, actually, this piece... It's the 'Main Theme' for my game Miasmon, which is still as nearing completion as it was a few weeks ago. o_O
It's supposed to be calming and sort of sombre, I suppose... The game is set on a dead world which you're trying to unearth mysteries about, and the plot heavily focuses on an extinct sentient race that used to inhabit the planet. As such, I tried to make the music reflective and mysterious rather than the more adventurous music you might expect in Pokemon games.
Anyway, this was composed by me in a program called Sibelius, and the simple Flash music player thing that contains it was made by me as well.
There's no preloader, so the player might take a few seconds to appear.
Hooray!!! First music submission!!! However, this is not the first song I have written. I think that this is the best possible choice to be posted as my first music submission. I did the song using ACID 6.0 and the Garritan Personal Orchestra program (which. is. AWESOME!!!!). And the music player using flash of course. It was actually my first time using flash 10 and its interface. I love it! Only a trial though.
Anyway, this song is written for my game Cosmic Gem - Planet Horizon as a boss battle theme. The thing is I don't know which boss I think the song suits best yet. That's why for now the title of this song is "Battle Amongst The Stars", otherwise it would be "The Battle Of >Insert boss' name here<.
Special thanks to =PsychoticTurtle for providing me with the Personal Orchestra! and ACID and Flash too I guess.
Song is 3:14 long. And there is just one part of the song that don't really like only because it actually sounds fake at 1:12 in to the song and again at 2:24. But, I can't find anything to make it sound less fake. Oh well... I guess. And it pretty much just loops twice, and sounds exactly the same, so right now it sounds a little too repetitive. I might make it less repetitive, but until then learn to deal with it!!! Brandon!!!
I hope you all enjoy my music. This is the first of many to come!
Well this song actually was originally intended to be written as the background theme for my Whirled room [link] , but after the first part of the song, I ended up writing the rest of it as a love song. *blush* So my intentions for writing this song changed completely after the first day. But I still used it as the background theme for my Whirled anyway since it seemed to fit well.
I like to think of this as the official version. I changed the instrumentation just a little bit to be more to my liking. I recently added in a 14 second intro, I felt it worked out allot better and complimented the rest of the song the way I think it should. ^^
Update as of 2/16/09: Changed the Harp to be one octave higher, added reverb and lowered volume level to prevent it from clipping/distorting in several areas of the song, fixed the MIDI tracks that were missing a single note for some reason.
Blue Star is written and composed by ZBot9000 and is approximately 1:06 in length.
Okay. So i mostly finished all side things and can spend my free time on my self and my works Though hanging with friends, laying Crisis and MTG kind of eats most of my time but this is my first try to get creative mood back.
I'm hard at work with TONS of different possibilities for the last panel all drawn out, and well, because today is your birthday, I figured I'd better get on it.
So I made this song for you over the weekend. I hope you like it; it's called Final Boss, and it loops, and has very poor quality in the flash, but I think it's close to what you wanted. Just IM me and I'll send it to you so you can put it on your mp3 player or whateva. I mean, you said a good boss theme with guitar and some orchestra, so I had a good idea and winged it. So that's your theme song.
I hope you like the picture too. Took me five minutes. O.o Meramaru looks cool.
If the world wasn't so cruel I would have bought you a tablet and sewn you a meramaru scarf myself (I'm a skilled tailor) and shipped it to you, but you know... stuff. Mainly cash.
But hey, on the bright side I'm being commissioned A TON. Though the money might just go for a MAJOR technological re-vamp.
So here's some more music. This was featured on my first CD, Eternal Tales. "The Cavern" was inspired by the cave episode of "Planet Earth" which I watched with a friend of mine while working on a major collab which is still not done. >:U IT'S ABOUT ADVENTURES UNDER OUR FEET. Plus, spelunking is kinda cool if you go to the right cave. Enjoy. Hopefully I'll post moar.
Yes, I'm still to lazy to put play and pause buttons on it. Yes, I know it plays in loops. You're doomed.
