    Game Music

    Hi Guys,

    anyone got some ideas on how to do Game Music?
    I'm searching on some kind of RPG Style, emotional and dramatical.

    Mostly I do Hip Hop beats so I'm kind of lost in this style.
    It all seems so minimalistic and simple-schemed but I just dont get it.

    I'd love to hear peoples feedback on this also. How you got into game music or if you are producing any music for games.

    It's a very interesting industry with heaps of opportunity!

    These days, major Hollywood composers are scoring games. It is not the wild west it once was back in the 8-bit days.

    I've thought about this also, it looks like an exciting area to get into. If you are used to hip hop beats then this would be quite a challenge, as for a dramatic RPG you would need to focus on melody.

    The way I would do this is to pick a scale and a key and try to write a simple theme in that key which fits the mood you are going for, then go from there with variations, change in timing, strip it back a bit or maybe embellish instead etc. but you'll need to find a method that works for you.

    exactly! I agree 100%...experiment with different scales & keys until you find what you're looking for. personally for me, if it sounds familiar or nostalgic, it's a good path to go down.

    you could even sample music from some of your favorite games & add new drums, beef it up etc. to get a hang of it. that's pretty much how I started out making music
