"Dungeon of the Dark" is a project for game design student Ali Lennon. He was looking to demonstrate level design in a top down Zelda style action slasher.
After discussions, we agreed to create a pleasingly lo-fi chiptune style of music that gives an appreciative nod to the NES classics of yesteryear.
In the compilation, you can hear the title select screen music, dungeon exploration music, and finally battle music. I wrote the first and third track on an acoustic guitar about a week before I entered the studio, but the second track was pretty much entirely hummed into my phone recorder whilst I was on a bus!
With all these I tried to cram in as much melody as possible. If it's one thing I would say is my main strength with regards to composition, it's my ability to find melodies and counter melodies. I want you humming my tunes long after you've listened to them!
This was my first ever commission and will always hold a special place in my heart. One day we would love to revisit this and give it a thumping remix. Watch this space!
Have a listen below :)
If you need original music, don't forget you can hire me! What do you think of this track? Let me know :)
