I have just released a game soundtrack!
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:54:43 pm »
You can stream it at:

I'd love to hear some reviews! I suppose I'd call the style a mix of Chrono Cross and Suikoden with a touch of Wild ARMs. It's definitely RPG-styled, anyway. I do consider Yasunori Mitsuda as one of my biggest influences, so if you catch a Mitsudan-like mannerism here and there, don't be alarmed. ;)

Lovin' what I've heard so far Jormungand, and yeah, I can feel the Mitsuda flowing here. It'll be interesting to read chi_z's feedback if he sees this.

So how many game soundtracks do you have under your belt now?

Three complete, and two in-progress.

I'm glad you two enjoy the music! It's why I do what I do. :)

Excellent work. I can definitely hear the Mitsuda influence. You, Sir, have earned my $10. :lol:

"Blue Field" is my favorite. It reminds me of CC's "Voyage."

Apparently I have more discerning tastes than MrBekkler, because it took me until the second track to love this thing.

Seriously though, good work.

XD I read the first half like "Oh now, how can you not like... OH!"

Yeah, I tried looking up the actual game on youtube and it doesn't look like something I'd be too into, but really this music is TOP notch, not only influenced BY Mitsuda but also comparable TO his work. An admirable feat achieved very well. We at Overture can't stop talking about it, and I've been listening for days. When I have the money, I'll purchase it.

In the mean time, it'd be amazing if you'd be interested in working with Overture for the two Chrono games we have in development. Even if you only wanted to do one song we'd bow to you! Hell even if you aren't interested, you deserve the respect anyway.

Pretty much everything they said =)
Yesterday I got VGMA and I loved Forest in the Storm too... and I'm looking forward to Mega Man XA! ;D

Wow, I feel very humbled! Thank you for all the kind words and support.

Indeed, the opening guitar riff of Blue Field is probably the most "Mitsudian" thing I did! I'm glad you found it enjoyable, and hopefully calming! ;)

Again I am feeling humbled! I'm glad you've enjoyed the music, even if the game's not quite your cup of tea (not mine either!) ;)

I haven't yet read about these projects but I will certainly have a look! I'd be interested in helping you out. :)

Glad you liked it! I'm definitely excited to release MMXA, and hopefully I can do that ASAP... there's still much work to be done!

Walking with my dog yesterday when the track "Par la campagne" came on. First thing I thought was "Which album of Mitsuda's did this come from?" Totally forgot I had this soundtrack on my MP3 at the time. :lol:

Unfortunately I dont have the money, but the first track alone, welcome to horse isle would be worth the price of admission. incredibly serene and moving, it's on of those things that are hard to put into words. you have 'it' as they say, and I'm incredibly jealous no less!  the road ahead with the uilleann pipes and violin  is incredibly detailed percussion wise! very idiomatic writing on the violin, your mixing skills are also enviable. did you use eastwest ra for this?
