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.

    Hi, Scott. I doubt you remember me but I talked to you once or twice on AIM several years ago. It’s probably been around eight years now. And may have not even been under this name. Yikes.

    More importantly, I’m glad to see you finally got your website back up. After it was hacked I checked back frequently for months to see if it was repaired, to no avail. As I was searching through my old favorite music I found my Scott Peeples collection. Yay! So I came to take another look and it seems like I’m about a year late to the ballgame. Oh well.

    Sorry to hear this project didn’t work out for you. I sure hope you’re going after music as a career, as I’ve said before. You have so much talent but I’m sure you hear that all the time!

    I wake up to your SGX Cloud 9 remix every day on my alarm clock. I like how it subtly builds up so doesn’t blast you out of bed but the drums keep you awake. And it says, “Get up!” – giggity.

    Hope to hear more good things from you soonish!

    Hey, your music is very inspiring, may I ask what program(s) you use to create such pieces? Thanks!

    Kevin, these songs were made pretty much entirely with Ableton Live and Native Instruments’ Komplete 6.
