Telling A Story

 

When writing for linear or interactive visuals you have to be able to convey a range of emotional feels.

 

 

Theme Music 

A piece of music that isn't interactive or tailored to something linear like a game cut scene, film or trailer. The song is written in more of a traditional way for a theme, with the emphasis being on melody as well as structure and dressing the visuals with an appropriate style.

 

Linear Music 

An example of scoring to moving picture is in the Services page under the Music heading. Music scored to picture using sync points, emotional cues, and style can be written to trailers as well as cut-scenes, animations or motion pictures.

 

Aggresive Battle Music and Mood Variants

You need (unless you have other goals) to have a certain overall style and feel consistent for your project. However, within these styles, or pallets used to paint with,  you have to touch on many emotions ranging from fear, sadness, to tension, to cues for success/failure, battle and more.

Music Score 

Score has to move through a myriad of emotions to ride with and elevate the storyline for the project creating dynamics, peaks, and empty vacuums, moods include hope, foreboding, aggression, sadness etc. Interactive music for games need to have emotional variations of the same piece of music for the various intensities of gameplay triggered in-game. Please see the video in the Service page under Music for an interactive game music sample.

 

Logo Audio Design 

There's many ways to make your logo stand out; sharp digital sound effects, sound designs, musical components for the actual logo, you can take it in any direction desired. This sample has modern feeling sound effects and sound design, with musicality for the actual logo.
