GL012 And Just Like That

“Ever wish you could _______? Well now you can! It’s simple…”

This track was created for tutorial videos for the Flipboard app. They needed something that was bouncy and light without being too dramatic or imposing. The challenge was to make this track go somewhere without building it in density, melodic complexity, or rhythmic syncopation. This is the first Game Loop that I’m including a stinger with. This punchy little ditty acts as the end of the track. Simply loop the piece as long as you’d like, and when you need the piece to end, cut the track and splice in the stinger. It should work anywhere.

Here’s one of the tutorials in action!

As with all the things posted here, this is freely available for use in games and/or animation projects. It also works as a sort of demo of my style and abilities. I’m actively looking for new gigs, so if you like anything here please get in touch and we can discuss some custom work.

I’ve provided separate intro/loop files for ease of editing. If you would like to use this royalty free loop, please message me.

GL008 Cardboard Castles (Let’s Build a Fort)

I really like the way this one turned out. I’d set out to do something a little cutesy and innocent. As I was writing the initial melody, though, I started imagining a story about two best friends building a rocket ship out of cardboard and blasting off into imaginary outer space. I know the title references castles, not rockets, but alliteration makes for nicer names. Do you agree?

Initially I really wanted to establish a repeating harmonic progression and just stick with that the entire time (something that I feel works much better for this loop-type work), but once the story was set in my mind I couldn’t help but get a little dramatic. As always, it was a bit of a challenge trying to bring it back home again, but I think it works.

GL005 Fragile Dancer Duo

I wanted to do something light and pretty with some unexpected harmonic twists. The use of chromatically related chords took me pretty far away from my key center, but I was able to get back home using a neopolitan pre-dominant. I cheated it a little as it wasn’t quite set up properly, but I sort of like the dissonance it creates. I titled this “Duo” as I’m working on a fully orchestrated version of this piece as well.

This feels nostalgic, music box-y, waltz-y (without being in 3), and reminds me of heavy snow by moonlight.
