    Composing Adaptive Music (Non-linear)

    Music and Sound FX

    • Posted By akaudio

    AKAudio is an online Sound Design Studio. We compose music from youtube jingles, cinematic shorts and adaptive video game music. survival-shooter-2.jpg Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 11.04.16 AM.png In this video tutorial we would like to show you some of the techniques that we use when composing non-linear music for our clients. 1. Themes 2. Instrumentation 3. Transitions 4. Sound Design

    When composing music, you must remember to stick to the theme of the game. In this case we wanted to portray a magical atmosphere with a few aspects of horror since the game is about a baby who dreams of fighting off toy enemies. Instrumentation inlcudes woodwinds that are set to the tempo of the enemies when they walk. You can hear that we implemented a Celesta to help keep the music "magical" You'll notice the instrumentation changed while we kept the same musical motif implemented by adding brass. The transitions are always short and include a tempo change. The end transition also changes to a slower tempo. We incorporated a randomized Volume and Modulation wheel to help to keep the sounds effects fresh and new. You can contact us with any questions and job inquiries at audio@akaudio.com or visit our website at AKAudio.com https://soundcloud.com/akaudioak/survival-shooter Thanks for watching!
