Having recently spoken to the Dev group about doing some music for this game I wanted to get opinions before actually finalising anything and submitting it.
I'm aiming to have have 5 tracks of 3-4 minutes as a basis before I submit anything, as I know how annoying it is to have a 3 minute loop on a game like this.

What do you think of these?

*...for now

ok, this is now on the less original side of things, but I think it would be nice to include the original soundtrack.
Legally this is a bit of a gray area though.

It will eventually be uploaded as a mod on this forum, or more accurately I suspect it'll be uploaded on my googledrive, and it will be available for people to download and implement themselves.

Mend



All of these pieces can be found in this Soundcloud set.

Very Nice!
Do keep working on it, can't wait to hear what you come up with when finished.

What I think is lacking is a distinctive melody. The originals are immediately catchy because they had such a distinctive tune I could recognise them from just a whistle. But maybe that's because I've heard them many times over.

Sounds very promising however ;)

Wow, I really like Funk 1 and Jazz 2! :D  (I'm not as keen on Jazz 1, but I'm not sure why)

Very nice indeed! At this pace we could include it in the next release?

Finished Funk 1 for now

I may yet change a couple of little melodic tweaks, but that is pretty much what that song will be like.
is that the kind of song people want?

(I have to admit, much as I like that song. It's not exactly background game music. If I can write enough genuinely background stuff I'd probably then remove it, but for now it's a finished song)

Hi Evilpooley,
I really like your music -- the background is perfect, but the main melody seems a bit too serious for a game like CorsixTH IMHO. For example, in "Th Funk 1", 1:56-2:13 feels basically perfect, but the added melody in 2:14-2:30 ruins the game-like feel for me.

What do you use for creating the music? Would you mind publishing the source? Also, could you license it under a license that allows modifications (CC-BY-SA, perhaps?), so that people could play with it and refine it down the line?

With music composed in this manner, publishing a source file is largely useless unless you happen to have the same however many plugins and samples etc, then you have to consider the amount of space a three minute track may take up if you've done ten take per instrument, drums using 8 or so mics recorded at 96khz and 24bit.. it starts racking up size massively.

"Open Source Music" has been a largely disputed term and most companies come to the agreement that as long as derivatives are allowed; with no "source", so to speak, ever being formally published.

I believe the plan was for him to change to a deriv licence once he has finished playing with the tracks.

This looks and sounds of course very good, maybe we could implement something in the next version?  ;)

Funk 1: Indeed a bit to serious for CorsixTH; sorry, but it now sounds a bit as elavator music.  :) I think it needs a little bit more variation.
TH Jazz 1: See funk one.
TH Jazz 2: Is a bit of a sad song; at the beginning it would almost make me cry. ;D But I like this song the most! It has more variation.

Really sorry, but for me it looks more like elavator music. But that is what I think. Others could think completely something else.

I would say the contrary if anything. It blends into the background better if there isn't too much variation and too many instruments (within each song), the important variation comes between songs. I do think they would work in CorsixTH. There are of course always tweaks that can be made, but it's still very good!

I'm still interested in doing some music for this, I've just been very busy with other projects, and recently University has somewhat gotten in the way of actually sitting down and doing any writing
I'll be back on it in a few weeks when things have calmed down again.
