Vintage Doom Music - orchestrated videogame compositions (GPO4)
Hello there fellow community.
Back in the days, videogame music depended on musical basics called Melody, Harmony and Rhythm.
So since the technical range was very limited, still grand composers managed to create beloved classics.
This was most often the Midi format, which is not unlike Orchestrated music depending on just those musical basics.
I'm composing original music in the spirit of a videogame, called Doom (1993), which is not quiet a source of orchestrated music, rather having it's roots in Metal music of it's days. Broadened to Metal, Rock, Blues and sometimes even orchestrated Ambient background music. All composed in Midi format.
In the end, the music has it's own character and I don't initially perceive it as strict Metal or Rock, but rather an unique style which consists of a broader range than a lot fellow game fans remix, reproduce or tribute as purely Metal music.
The first most rule for this project is; It seamlessly blends with the original music while being original compositions. Using only instruments part of the classical orchestra (since this sets a similar skill set as composing solely in Midi format). Ultimately conceiving it as a new look on old things.
I just minded posting it because 95% of all instruments used are Garritan Personal Orchestra 4. There is an additional Drumkit (freely available) and occasionally an acoustic Guitar or something else. The rest is all GPO4.
This is an on-going process and I'm looking for feedback for individual tracks and reaching a broader audience. You can follow it at will. Since I'm not a professional learned composer, you'll probably notice a lot of crimes towards authentic classical music.
