Guess who's back bros!
If you haven't seen lately, I was featured on FlashFlashRevolution.com, with my track Geno's Forest F-Zero Remix implemented in the game! Read more at FlashFlashRevolution.com
I want to thank you, the Newgrounds community, for giving me this great exposure and response. I will continue to please you with more, better music!
Well after working for a few months, got the school laptop with wicked power to mix my tunes:
Intel Core 2 Duo @ 1.80gHz
2048mb DDR2 RAM
120GB SATA HDD
384mb Intel Video Card (sooo awesome for gaming)
So anyways I thought I might christen the system by writing this track, Dark Terrain.
I promised a girl at work, Ashley Fiddes, that I'd write a track and dedicate it to her. So here ya go Ash :D
Dark Terrain is an attempt at bridging the gap between video game tunes and techno, as it did long ago. Back when video game tunes were written and emulated through 8-bit sound systems, they were amazing at the time, but lost their touch over the years due to new advancements.
The track mixes these classic sounds with some orchestra samples and samples from a live sound kit. There is also an emulated choir in there for ambiance, but I really wasn't going for the realistic factor on them.
Without further delay, here's the track:
I hope you enjoy this track, and further continue to follow my music and support the NGAP!
