Hiatus

Oof, looks like I started this project at the worst possible time schedule wise. I'm going to be focusing on other stuff more vigilantly for the next little while, but I'll probably compose some stuff over Christmas. I know all 3 of you who read this will be saddened. See you around Xmas!

Rubber Boat

This is a very short tune that started of as an Oriental-inspired theme, but then quickly morphed into a much more nautical sounding one. I drew influences from Yoshi's Island and more or less every game I've ever played that had some sort of pirate ship/harbour level for this one. I really like the tone of the melody line; I'll probably use that sound a lot more in the coming weeks.

Hope you like!

Frost Cave

This is more or less my take on Vanilla Dome from Super Mario World for the SNES. The drums borrow heavily from the underground themes of the Mario franchise, and the sparkly, glass-like tones in the melody are directly influenced by the Vanilla Dome theme. Where mine differs is in the constant bassline and the fact that a melody is much more clearly defined in mine, as opposed to the twinkling sounds of Vanilla Dome.

This is a very basic theme that combats its repetitiveness with a melody line that is broken up by subtle changes.
