NEWEST TRACK: "HERO" ADDED 9/1/15!

 

Figured I'd start contributing!

Some background:

I compose for a living. As such, I don't have a ton of time to devote to writing music that isn't job-related. But, every so often I get a spare moment or two.

I deal mostly in orchestral stuff...so you are unlikely to ever find things like battle music or anything involving a heavy rock element. Anything I post will be more "mood music" than anything. If that's what you're looking for, then great!

A couple of short themes to start with, then (Well, now that I'm starting to have multiple different themes per "type", I'll break them down in categories):

Scene or Thematic Material (Orchestral Sounds):

PLEASE NOTE that for tracks using orchestral sounds, when you credit me, please also include the title of the track in the credits.  I would very much appreciate it.  Thanks.

 

AREA THEMES

https://soundcloud.com/geluf/sunrise-on-the-endless-plains - A flexible theme that can fit in a variety of places: Towns, Forests, Plains, Maps, and other outdoor areas. 

https://soundcloud.c...enchanted-caves - A theme for caves, forests, or any other mysterious places you can conjure up!

MISC
http://soundcloud.com/geluf/lament -Solo piano. A short, sad theme.
http://soundcloud.co...ve-of-departure

https://soundcloud.com/geluf/on-the-horizon - Cinematic, cut-scene or titles/credits music

https://soundcloud.com/geluf/the-great-adventure - This one is probably best used as a "credits" theme (opening or closing), or perhaps a title screen.

https://soundcloud.com/geluf/through-the-forest-in - A main theme.  Can also be used as credits...or however you wish! 

- Another main theme-like track

- A tactical RPG battle theme, or could be used for scenes, dungeons, castles, whatever!

 

16-Bit Style Sounds:

NOTE: tracks listed here do not require including the name of the track in the credits.  Just my name will do.

Town Music:
http://soundcloud.com/geluf/town-1 - A town theme. Very relaxed.

Thematic:
http://soundcloud.com/geluf/exhaulted -More thematic stuff, badly named. This one is undergoing some tweaks to the instruments.

Dungeon and/or Monster-Area Music:
http://soundcloud.com/geluf/dungeon
http://soundcloud.com/geluf/dungeon2a
http://soundcloud.com/geluf/dark-forest

https://soundcloud.com/geluf/dark-forest-enhanced

I'll add things from time to time. Hope you find it useful!
As far as crediting, if you use any in your project, a simple credit to "Geluf" will do just fine. Thanks! If you plan to use these for commercial purposes, please send me a PM.

Lament is amazing, really, it sets a mood that's just...great.

Exhaulted* is good too, seems a bit less....mm....triumphant than I'd expect something titled "Exhaulted" to be, but nonetheless, a good track.

I'm looking forward to what else you put up, and I've already downloaded these two. :D

 

*And once again Google Chrome devotes itself to it's sheer idiocy, not recognizing exhaulted as a word.

Yeah, I didn't think for very long when I named "Exhaulted". Obviously feel free to rename these to whatever you want.

 

Glad you like them!

Wow. All three of these tracks are amazing. All of my 5 stars go to you.

 

I couldn't resist the download button. So much for impassive training. I just had to add them to the music collection.

Thank you very much! I'll be adding more and more as time goes on, so stay tuned.

Neeeeew one? :3

Time to listen to it!

Mmm mm mmmm mm mmmm~

Yes, I love town. It's a fantastic contrast to the usual upbeat, almost hyper tone in the RTP.

Definitely giving this one a download. It's nice, calm, relaxing, and fits for what you'd expect a town to be. Maybe a nice nature town? Or one with simple folk living simple lives?

Apparently I just can't stop making music!

A short dungeon-eque theme.

 

Geluf, I'm quite digging these tracks.

 

Could you tell me what programs did you use to write them? :)

 

Of course!

 

for notating, I write everything out in Sibelius. The included Garritan sound samples work pretty well for 16-bit game music design. Once finished, I export the audio from Sibelius and import it into Sonar X1 where I add any effects I might need.

Wow, these are pretty great!

 

Lament feels like it could've been so much more though, I can totally imagine it with some violin in the background. Totally amazing, even without the violin.

 

btw, I don't think Exhaulted is improperly named. It's triumphant enough for me at least.

 

Town really reminds me of Dark Cloud for some reason, ah... that's some nostalgia there. I loved that game!

I absolutely love your music. I just commented to Niko about blending, and this is exactly what I meant.

I have to say that the town theme and Lament are my favs. Though all are good.

I will definitely favorite the page and message you if I feel I can take my project commercial. B)

To be completely fair, I'm not entirely familiar with my tool yet. I don't know where to go, or what to do, to get the exact sound I want. I also don't work well when things get to complex. I still haven't been able to get a good action track, but I can't seem to find instruments on Finale to get the sound I'm looking for.

Oh I understand that, please don't take offense to it.

You wanted critical advice and I understand you're new to the process. It's great work.

As you said in your reply, to listen to the other track, I did and it's very nice. B)

I didn't take offense, I was just making sure you understood, :)

Open up the link and it should send you to another site, on top of the big play button should be three smaller buttons "Share" "Save to favorites" and "Download" just click the last one and it should start downloading.

This is good stuff. The tracks feel like very grand-scale background music(by that, I mean that I can picture most of them playing in movies, particularly Lament and Eve of Departure), but at the same time they possess an element of restraint to them that makes them very moving to listen to and fitting for a video-game. Nice work! :)
