Topics I've Started

Three new songs

09 June 2014 - 08:09 AM

Hey guys!

 

I recently finished three new tracks for the Antilia MMO. I hope you enjoy them: 

 

http://madsenstudios.bandcamp.com/track/gathering-resources-2

 

This track is specifically written for the building mode in the Anitilia MMO video game. It has a slightly different feel with more momentum and less mood/space than some of the other tracks. The alto flute is replaced with a different, wooden flute. I hope you enjoy it!

This track is specifically written for the building mode in the Anitilia MMO video game. It has a slightly different feel with more momentum and less mood/space than some of the other tracks. Unlike Gathering Resources, which uses a different flute, the alto flute returns for this track. Staking your claim in the wilderness is a difficult but hopeful endeavor.

This track is specifically written for the building mode in the Anitilia MMO video game. It differs from the other two building mode tracks (Gathering Resources and Stake Your Claim) because it assumes more of the pacing, mood and instrumentation found in much of the rest of the soundtrack. The alto flute, again, carries much of the melody while the strings and brass create harmonies with swelling chords and counter lines. I hope you like it!


Movie Studio Set Theme

21 March 2014 - 09:46 PM

Howdy one and all,

 

This track was written for Disney’s Threads of Mystery, a social, hidden object game on Facebook. Later, I hired the amazing John Rodd to mix it. Sadly, the game's no longer live but I'm glad I was able to write many cues for it. The track’s aim was to convey the magic, excitement and mystery of a movie set. I hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to share any thoughts or feedback on it.


Dragons and Titans trailer

Hey guys,

 

I wanted to share with you all the full and the music-only versions of a trailer I recently worked on:

 

Full:

 

 

Music Only:

 

 

I also did all of the sound design as well as produced (but didn't record) the voice over. The in-game music and sound design and most of it's VO was also done by me. I hope you enjoy it. Feedback always welcomed!

 

Thanks!

Mock ups?

01 February 2014 - 04:57 PM

I would love to hear people's thoughts on audio mock ups. We seen them all of the time, especially at the Demo Derbies and such and the general thought is as long as you clearly notate that it's a mock up and for demonstative purposes only, you're mostly okay. What about some of you more seasoned devs out there?

 

Have you ever seen someone get a C&D letter related to an audio mock up? During my free time, I love to write mock up stuff but have generally refrained from posting it directly to my website just as a percaution.

 

Would love to hear your thoughts on this!

 

Thanks,

 

Nate


New blog entry about listening as a composer.

03 January 2014 - 08:28 PM

Hey guys,

 

I've published a new article about the importance of really listening (like a new, first time listener would) when composing a piece of music. I hope you enjoy it and welcome any feedback/discussion.

Thanks!
