Heart of Forma OST
Heart of Forma OST
Heart of Forma OST
This is music for a small side-scroller indie space game that was under development by a colleague. The game is light-hearted and somewhat retro, so the music will sound cheesy and a little MIDI-ish at times. I went pretty loose with my composing here and just went with whatever flowed to me rather than try to think too hard. Probably the most fun and relaxed I've had composing in a while. A ... »

This is probably my most thematically interesting and coincidentally longest piano piece so far. It may actually be more of a series of songs like chapters in a story, but I leave them together since it was originally played on the spot in one session. I'm also finally becoming more comfortable improvising both hands at once and switching fluidly between keys without really thinking about it. ... »

The song's pretty simple to play and somewhat repetitive, but I like it.

Just playing around with a new major/minor key I'm becoming familiar with and managed to improv my way into playing this song. It's not mine and is a cover of a song that already exists under a similar name. Thought it was nice enough to keep even though there are obvious playing "typos" (is that the word?) here and there. »

So I keep coming back to my older song Cloudless... The key is just really easy for me to improvise on the spot with I guess. I've managed to build on the melody a lot more than the last variation I made on it (Cloudful). This is just a quick recording of me playing it on the spot so I don't forget later, meaning it's very much just a draft. I'm hoping to make it an orchestral track like the... »

I should probably should start doing that for all my songs from now on anyways. Sadly, it's not a Halloween/horror song.... »
