After my first meeting with the guys at Motion Punch Studios, I came home and started working on some preliminary ideas for the music score. Since there are only three tracks in that game, It was not going to be very hard, I thought. One had to be for the Start Screen, another for the Halloween Theme and the other for The Christmas theme.
Working on what was going to be the central melodic motif to the entire three songs was a hard task as well. What's weird while you're composing music is you never know what will end up being the central melody or sound that everything else is based on. There is always a central theme or a melody to any music that makes the backbone of a track and everything else either drives or supports it sonically. Sometimes it will be subtle and in the background and sometimes it will take up centre-stage and the entire sonic space.
Originally, clocking at about five minutes the track was too long to fit into the mobile app, so I had to shorten it to about two minute and add numerous FX lke bat screeches and shaking skeletons to make it more halloween-ish. Typical stuff.
I'm yet to work on the other two tracks. Long week ahead.
