I've included my favourite pieces in here along with a brief
description.. They can all be played with Winamp..
Gauntlet Dark Legacy Triumph ! :- Short, and sweet, exactly the sort of thing you want to hear if you've just dropped $50 into an arcade machine..
Dramatic :- Stormy seas.. Just a short teaser piece I wrote while trying to get the designers to agree on a mood for a game..
Happy :- "Make it John Williamsy" - if I had a buck for every time I heard that... Again just another wee teaser..
Drakan 2 Town Music :- Unfortunately the music I did for Drakan 2 ended up not being used, this piece was for the town center, also the player would be going through a lot of dialogue while hearing this piece so I layed off the melody..
Spider Egyptian Music :- In the game you got to lead the spider through a model egyptian city.
Spider Street Level :- I tried to envision what kind of music you would hear outside a club at 3am in the morning.
Drakan 2 Desert :- In a way this piece is a sequel to the Spider Egyptian piece I had written a few years before, I wanted to explore more of the ethnic sounds yet keep within the guidelines..
Midnite :- A cover of a Vince Clark classic.. Interesting collaboration having the guitarist 800 miles away work on it, and once again Carla on vocals, I couldn't believe what a great job she did singing on it, its a bitch of a song to sing (you try it), but I think she did a great job..
Persian Rug :- I'm a sucker for a good theme piece, I liked how the bongos turned out (they werent sampled loops)
Gauntlet Dark Legacy Pirates in the Sky:- This tune eventually became the Fields Of Fire tune as it was a bit heavy for the sky world, the brief I was given at the time was to imagine two big pirate ships floating in the sky with cannons firing at each other, people swinging across from ship to ship with their swords between their teeth, people being sliced and diced left right and center... As you can imagine the final level was bugger all like that, but I still like how the tune sounded for that...
Gauntlet Dark Legacy Sky Docks :- After they had sorted out the design a bit for the game, they decided they wanted a more "airy" feel to the music leading up to a big battle at the end of the piece, this piece ended up being the games "magnum opus" weighing in nearly twice as long as any of the other pieces in the game...
Rush 2049 N64 Bassy :- I put this tune on Garageband.com to see just how well it would do on there, it went to #1...
Trip :- Its not often I write a piece solely for myself... every few years I tend to do something really self indulgant and this was one of them...
Trip With Me :- Originally a N64 tune (available in the Music archive) I liked the tune and was kinda bummed that I hadnt done more with it for the Nintendo title, so I reworked it and had Carla sing on it.. That girls got some lungs on her eh...
