Re: New main menu music!

Thanks guys!

TBH I never really saw a problem with it in the first place. It's a ritardando and a brief rest, nothing awkward about it at all imo :)

Re: New main menu music!

Again, sorry for the delay :/ The orchestral project template I'm using for this is close to seven years old (it has kind of a fitting sound, cosidering that the rest of the Wesnoth music is also pretty old by now) using some borderline ancient 32-bit plugins, and it has given me no end of problems ...

Re: New main menu music!

Probably it's just me again but those last 3 notes at the very end sounded a bit strange, they seem to come out of nowhere and I sort of expected it to go somewhere but the piece just ended. That's the opening phrase of the main theme repeated one last time. And it seemed to me at 3:02 that the low...

Re: New music for the game

zacriac: I know, my forum title says "retired" and I don't have any say in what goes in the game anymore, but since we don't get a lot of action in this part of the forum anymore I would just like to say that I like what I hear and it's great that you're interested in contributing music. Cool track,...

Re: New main menu music!

Thanks guys. You know what, I'm also on the fence about the part at 2:11. I was trying to weave a bit of Siege of Laurelmor into the composition, with some vague hint of Ambuscade as well, but having digested this part a couple of days I agree with you. It is indeed jarring and doesn't go well with ...

Re: New main menu music!

I'm not sure if it's my place to argue, but I rarely spend 3 and a half minutes in the main menu. Unless this track is also meant for in-game music, I think it's too long. The part from 1:21 still feels too lively after that beautiful melodic part before. I'm really just writing my opinion, I think...

Re: New main menu music!

Sorry about the long silence folks! I had to go back and rework some bits of a soundtrack project I was working on recently, and then summer and vacation-type things got in the way. I'm back to working on the menu music now and I'll have a new version up in a few days. I've been been trying to come ...

Bingo :) It just trails off as I have no idea what is going to come next.

Re: New main menu music!

X) Wow, it's so good already! I don't suppose there is any chance of other commissioned works on the horizon? That is not for me to say. I'm here to make music and chew bubblegum, and... yeah. IMO, first place would be Timothy Pinkham's Still Another Wanderer. I would agree, but Timothy had some pr...

Re: New main menu music!

Don't get me wrong, the current theme already is very good, but this one seems to get even better. I think this needs to be addressed early on: I don't think anyone has a problem with the current track, musically speaking. It's an iconic piece of Wesnoth music that helped lay the foundation for eve...

Re: New main menu music!

I'd be violating the posting guidelines if I put in all the :D 8) that I feel! Don't worry about it, I mentioned that only to nip any potential debates about the direction the music is taking and the finer points of the GPL in the bud. The track is epic, I love it! One comment I have is that to me ...

New main menu music!

Hi all. I'm returning briefly the the world of Wesnoth, as the official developers have hired me to compose some new main menu music. I will be posting updates to the track in this thread. Feel free to comment, but I ask you to please keep a couple of things in mind: 1. The purpose of this thread is...

Re: Wesnoth sheet music

Here's Journey's End as well if anyone needs it. I'm going through a lot of old project files here and some of them will not load (due to missing samples and plugins) but I 'd be happy to post midi files for the ones that will.
