Lots of questions in there, yikes. The similarities are certainly not intentional, though long before I'd actually picked up music I would study the soundtracks of my favourite games intently to get a better feel for what I'd be doing, and Rayman 1 was one of them. You might hear similarities to Croc and Oddworld in some of my pieces, as well. The only musical training I've had was learning how to read sheet music (learned when I was about 6 or so) and I took band for a few years playing an instrument I was already familiar with. Other than that, I know no music theory or anything, and pretty much self taught, and a lot of my work with audio has been trial and error. I'm not 100% sure what a complex time signature is, but yes, I intended to write in 3/4.
Yeah, that's a marimba. When I have my headphones again, I'll export a version without the pitch changes to see if it fixes the problem.
Where do you think would be a better place to introduce the tube bells? I hadn't originally intended to use them, but as I was working on the song, I just suddenly thought, "DANG, THIS NEEDS SOME TUBE BELLS." and so I threw some in. Do you think your opinion would change whenever I actually finish the song? Because the part where the tube bells are introduced isn't supposed to be as bare as it currently is, and the emptiness might be what makes it seem so... sudden? I guess would be the best way to describe it. That one is also a bit slower than I want the finished result to be. I think the entire thing sounds better and gives off a better feel at 145bpm.
Everything was done in Reason. I think I'm using version 5, but I'll have to check again to make sure.
Anyways, yeah art stuff updating thread small bump
I'm so happy I found my camera. The final picture is 4 charms out of a set of 12. They're the A1 trolls from Homestuck, and I fully intend to use them specifically to get people to want to buy custom charms and shit off me. They are very tiny, very detailed, and made of Creative Paper Clay. The grey thing is a Deny from Rayman 2, and it's made with the bacon clay I made a big deal about some time ago.
