Two additional themes joined the growing pile of SJ soundtrack material recently. These are work in progress and might appear in the finished game in various different guises. “Building blocks” would describe these pretty well.
The first is a heroic adventure type theme. I’m not sure where it will end up. For one, I’ll probably add stuff to it as I go. The other is a horns-and-trombones fanfare that sounds a bit like troops marching along. Maybe this will end up being the theme for Naruuk, the Star-Eater, although probably in a more evil sounding variation.
These are fun to make. I knocked each of them together in Reaper in a couple hours, using Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra and the EpicVerb plugin by Variety of Sound.
The actual soundtrack will have to be cobbled together from various dynamic bits and pieces and will probably be one of the last things that get done, simply because it needs to be fitted to cinematics and so forth. It’s never too early to start producing material, though. The more there is to choose from, the better!
There’s several other themes that have never been uploaded here, so audio friends have something to look forward to!
