I listen a lot of music, but I never played nether try to make some. However, it is an import part in a video game, it must not be forsaken.
I wanted to know if I could handle this part of the job, so I began to learn. I started from the ground, with sound synthesis. Then, I slowly made my way to composition. It was a tortuous path. I take a break with the Viznut experimental approach, how to make music (or sound structure) from very short programs. Even if the results could be amazing, it is really… experimental ! Though I love this kind of experience, it can be difficult to listen to. After some evenings trying to make my own formula, I had to be obvious ; It was not magic and I would’nt make it without a little serious learning.
After some times looking for a software that fits my needs, I found Sunvox made by Alexander Zolotov (nightradio). This tool can look strange at first, but it is a real crossplatform tool. I installed it on differents computers, and mostly on my smartphone. Even if it is not free on mobile device, it is worth it ! I could try what I learned everywhere when I got some times. I listened to a lot of electronic music, chiptune and study some technics. I made some trash but now, I have my first two shareable tracks. I’m still learning, but now I am more confident with my ability to produce some tracks for a video game.
I hope you like it :
