The Music of Terry93D (A Running Thread) - Terry93D - 07-03-2020

It's been a long time since I've uploaded music to my Soundcloud, but I have uploaded a handful of tracks recently.

This track is "Grand Inquisitor Field," which I've written for a JRPG passion project called ExoSpace. Writing it was the first time I made usage of the Infinite Brass and Woodwinds, and so it took a long time to finish, and I didn't quite manage to do everything in it that I wanted to. Nevertheless, I'm pleased with it.

A few months ago back in April, someone posted on another forum about a courtroom drama visual novel they were developing, and that they needed a composer. I wrote five VN-type tracks - about 30 seconds long, each, so that I didn't have to actually write long tracks - and crossfaded them as a demo reel, and sent that, and then began writing four cross-examination-type tracks, with the themes "light" and "dark" and with the tempos "slow" and "fast," resulting in four tracks total. I never got a response to the VN tracks, so I never sent along the cross-examination tracks, and it's been a few months, so a week or two ago I uploaded them to Soundcloud, each cross-faded together. They're in an 8-bit/SNES-like style, marrying together chiptune square and triangle waves with genuine SNES instruments (which come straight out of actual SNES games) and synthetic percussion (by way of the free Charlatan synth).

Hey, nice job on the orchestral track! Writing reminds me a lot of classic space TV series. Smile

The soundtrack for the first season of The Orville has been in my regular rotation for a while now. (Never seen the show - not a big TV watcher.) I keep hoping for a soundtrack release for season two, but nothing thus far...

Another piece for ExoSpace - this one's big. Switched to G-Town for the percussion, after managing to find a Kontakt version. This is probably the most intense, dramatic thing I've ever composed: orchestra, organ, bass guitar, electric guitar. Proud of it.

Sounds like a very convincing sound track to me. Lot's of action in this piece. Well done.

Very cool track! A jazzy prog rock type of vibe to it, love all the dissonance Smile

That's interesting, 'cause I was not thinking of jazz or prog at all. Not that I'm complaining, of course, it's wonderful to have people praising my music...

(Someone else said to me that it sounded like Danny Elfman meets Illusion of Gaia, which was absolutely wild. Perception is a heckuva thing!)

Conflict With The Cardinal is such a solid track! Congrats! The orchestration is interesting and the music has very interesting complexity.

Well, I didn't mean jazz specifically or prog specifically, more like prog artists with jazz influences like King Crimson, Frank Zappa and maybe Jethro Tull (before they got all folky). Quite an eclectic mix of styles there that just felt very proggy to me Smile
