Horror Music Theme - Linus Ågren - 10-10-2012

Well, it's just a short one, but it needs fine-tuning. Tell me what you think! (Note it is just a preview. Extended version will come later.)

RE: Horror Music Theme - Solipsist - 10-10-2012

My lexicon regarding music is quite dull, so I'll try to express my self articulately regarding the matter...

For it to be "horror", you have to set a mood; a slow pacing lone instrument; or at least aspiring for minimum instruments. An adagio which carries the plot with it, the feeling of the characters and or the world; which is why most horror themes are minimalistic; to assert the loneliness, pain and terror the protagonist(Amnesia) / antagonist(FEAR) feels.
What you have here, is a fresh beat which apparently utilizes some old hardware to accommodate the poppy tune..
For a theme, I think it is way to vivid; it would fit pretty well for a chasing scene, or a tune for a scare event to assure confusion with such lush and full body. But for a theme? I don't feel it. =|

Note : In modern "horror / terror"; what I said is most likely true (my own opinion), in oldschool def of the genre, it would definitely be a theme, or at least more likely. Oldschool "horror" is more like "Walk around and shoot everything"; so anything which attempts to insert adrenaline in your pumps 100% of the time playing, oldschool takes the bite.
Again, it's a good tune; but it feels too confusing and full to be horror under my take.

This will be IDEAL for my story. This is the kind of track I was searching for. What program did you use? I would like to make my own soundtracks.

RE: Horror Music Theme - Linus Ågren - 10-11-2012

This was more of a chase music I made, I forgot to point that out sorry. I will be working on more ambient songs after I get home from Turkey.
I made this in FL Studio.

Yes, that's what I mean. I will have a modified enemy and this would be ideal for a scene of my CS. Do you have more creations anywhere?

RE: Horror Music Theme - Linus Ågren - 10-12-2012

I have them saved on my laptop hehe.
I will release when I feel that it's either complete, or will not work in my Project.
