Composing for OpenMachines
« on: August 30, 2011, 07:51:52 am »
I don't know if you have anyone on team, I've not seen anyone (on this board) actually step forward properly to offer original music / sound effects. I don't know if you were thinking of having an original score, re-using the old OST, or a mix of the two, but I would love to help compose some things for this.

I'll post a few tracks here, but note, this is work I've DONE, not work I think would fit the game. Just a display of what I can do.

Electro-Industrial work:

Piece In Pieces (WIP)

War / Faith / Fire / Take

Ambient / previous soundtrack work:

Factory ambience, construction kind of droning

Spaaaaaace (A kind of gentle spacey ambience)

A battle theme for a steampunk Homeworld 2 mod (which was unfortunately cancelled)

Melodic chiptune:

Technosexuality

Battle for Tau Ceti


Should give you some idea of what I can do. If you think I'd be good enough, get in touch and I would start work pretty much immediately on whatever would be needed.

I write music!

Cool, man, I'll listen to those tracks once I get on my pc (on WM right now).

Well, I have attempted to put together a Techno-kind of track (seeing as I have some experience making tracks containing elementd of rock/metal/other stringinstruments), but that's with Guitar Pro. I have tried something with LMMS, but that just ain't my thing =P
Good to have you on the team.

Serious post here.

I think that it would be near impossible to remake the machine voices. It would take too much time and absorb many frustrations. Besides, the voices don't sound bad.

I understand that the tracks probably should be remade. Also, what ever happened to the VOTS'S radio-shack? It seems...dead

What is currently planned is to use the originals, and whatever is created for us that sounds machines-like. As you probably know, machines is usually robotic-like techno. I would like to keep it the same feel as the original game "music-wise."

Nice work on those tracks, they're very nice. Anyway, if you want to join the dev team, hop onto the irc and let me know. As of now, originals will be used, but if you create enhanced audio clips, we can use them.

We can always use extra help, except for people who come out of nowhere and ask for the mercurial read-write access.

interesting. Dannian, I think with the right software and know-how, we can somehow recreate similar sounds to the originals. Just a hypothesis, though, but it's not like they used alien technology to do it.  :-o

If you say so but I can't image the type of human that sounds like the reaper or the wasp.

Also, they come from Median Prime...
