There are absolutely fantastic. I'm a huge fan of the subtle 8-bit video game sound you've thrown into the mix, it's very nostalgic of the late 90s video games!

I would not be opposed to adding some of these to Marble Blast Fubar if you'd ever want to contribute!

Funny that there's actually a Fubar song already called "Jungle Jam", lol.

These sound great! I like how intricate yet relaxing they sound, perfect as video game music. Perspective's probably my fav.

Yeah, very well done man! Glad to see you back in the community and glad to see yet another musical person :) Which Fubar song is the one called Jungle Jam? Is it the funky one in 5/4 time with the really cool repeating chord progression? If not, which is that?

Jesus, your tracks are really really good! You seem very experienced and I'm seriously loving your music here! What program do you use to create your music?

Can you see if you can make a rock song? (Like, electric guitars and drums. Not rocks.)

There's something beautiful about instrumentals such as these, which is that nothing is left out. Every sound is given its own space, and since there isn't a massive influx of sounds, it's much more delicate and more "detail-friendly," I suppose. Having said that, it's easy to tell whether or not you enjoy making these, and I can tell that you do indeed! You're making music that makes you happy, and I think that's aspirational. :)

I love you, but your attitude is like that of a shrew. Your options? Take a pill or be my kill. Might I suggest that you wear a vest. Perish in class or be banished to the land of bluegrass, where dreams don't exist as you'll be eternally pissed.

hPerks replied the topic: hPerks' music [Throwback Tuesday 2: Saturday Edition - March 19]
It's Throwback Tuesday 2: Saturday Edition! Way back in the day (2009), before GarageBand '11 came out, I wrote a few small tracks in a very limited program called Finale PrintMusic (which was designed for classical compositions, and only used the 128 GM tracks.) Like many of the tracks I've already posted, these were written as background music for video games and videos.

Jazz Blast Blues
Based on a theme that would later appear in an original composition of the same name. Pop quiz: What other track of mine pays homage to this theme?
https://soundcloud.com/perkidos/jazz-blast-blues-old

DotZone OST (unnamed)
I added a cool phaser effect to this one in Audacity. Couldn't find the unphased version. :P
https://soundcloud.com/perkidos/dotzone-ost-old

Gem Trek OST (unnamed)
Again, this theme is featured in a newer track. (This one's slightly easier.)

I've had experience with Finale PrintMusic and it's awful. I use GarageBand and MuseScore, a free music composition software that does more than Finale PrintMusic does.

Nice song, certainly one of my favorites from you.
But it sounds like you left the metronome on (if that's what it is). Was that intentional?

These are absolutely marvelous. I'm disappointed in myself for not finding this thread until just now, I really like in specific Ambitions and Trakaidaphobia. The instruments all flow together really well and I love how you tried to experiment with the 13/4 time. Please keep making this type of music, I'm really interested to see what you can come up with in the future. :)

Megabump! Another new track after a long hiatus - I had a bunch of ideas that weren't really working before this one.

Back to Work
I decided to revert back to GarageBand 6, as I liked the instrument choices better. This one (like most of my tracks) is based off an idea I came up with while improvising, and involves as its principal rhythmic idea the periodic alternation between 7/8 and 9/8. Hope you enjoy!
