Projects That Failed: Metal Frag

Soundtracks

Metal Frag was a indie game that I was approached and asked to do a soundtrack for. As I was not doing too much outside my job in early 2009 I thought it would be a quick and fun thing to do. Unfortunately, schedules slip as they usually do, and due to the beginning of grad school I told the guy in charge that I would have to bow out of the project. All that remains from my participation are the following three songs in various stages of completion:

This first one was the theme for the Green Army (the good guys). The aim was to have an uplifting and slightly cartoony march-type song. I think I may have gone a little overboard.

This second song was the theme for the Black Army (the bad guys). Again, it is cartoony, but much less finished than the Green Army theme.

The final song was the first mock up of the opening screen music. This was the first sketch I did for Metal Frag, before I had much to go on in terms of feel or aim of the music. That’s why it sounds so out of place next to the more traditionally orchestrated first two songs.

Hope everyone enjoys them! It’s always entertaining to think what might have been.

Hey! I’m lazy!

Song Sketches, Unfinished

Sold my desktop to move towards a more mobile music mixing platform. In the meantime my old Thinkpad X61 is loaded up with an old copy of Reason and churning out mediocre music!

Wow that little bridge section in the middle is jarring.

It’s never as bad as it looks

The weather today is blue, a deep blue. Happiness is just right around the corner, though.

New microphone brings us more Adam Dunk

Adam Dunk

This is song is a beautiful praise and worship song as covered by Adam. I just got a new, much higher-end microphone and I think it really shows through in this recording. The only things that I really did to it were some reverb, panning, and similar post-production work to bring it all together. The rest is just Adam and his guitar. He also did two other covers that I will be posting up as I finish the post-production work on them.

You can grab a copy of the mp3 here.

Blast from the past, Pt. 2

Remixes

This is another remix that I did a pretty long time ago that has sort of disappeared from a lot of the main sites once OCRemix declared it not welcome on their site. I have always loved Frank Klepacki’s music and the work that he did on the various Command and Conquer games throughout the years. This song is a remix of Pharotek from the Tiberian Sun soundtrack. I named it Pharoteknical because I am creative like that. Enjoy.

The Raw Power of Being Off-Key

Remixes, Song Sketches, Unfinished

Are you that somebody? I mean, it’s cool if you’re not.

Also, fair warning: the vocals in the chorus are horribly off-key and I’ll probably never get around to fixing them.

Short Songs

Song Sketches, Unfinished

Not a lot on the post front recently. I blame a lot of things for that, mostly myself (ok, only myself), but I have a plan to at least put up some semi-regular content. What I think I’m going to start using this space for is to post stuff that normally I’d just squirrel away on my hard drive. So, you can look forward to short snippets of songs that I do when I’m learning new tools, techniques, or just messing around in my sequencer. to start it off, here’s a new one that I called “tripbeat”

Blast from the Past

Remixes

Wow. This is a remix that I did nearly 4 years ago. However, when my old computer died, I didn’t have a backup of it, and when vgmix went under for the first time I thought that it had been lost forever. However, I was able to find a copy of it stashed away on the internet. Anyways, here is a view from 4 years ago in a remix of the Doom song from the level e2m2. It’s called Contamination.
