    My latest work -- completed finally!

    OK here it is, finally complete.

    http://www.samhulick.com/Defend.mp3

    This will show up in an upcoming PlayStation2 title. Pardon the reverb tail at the beginning.. it\'s a looping piece.

    Am I happy with it? Eh.. pretty much. I\'m not sure I had enough time to work on it. Plus, for me, it\'s really hard to work on pieces that are this fast-paced, because they cover so much over so little time. Slower pieces are great because by the time I finish a phrase, I\'m already at 0:45 [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] This sucker was a pain in the *** ! My personal favorite part is 1:13 through 1:48. I think that part rocks.

    Any comments are welcome, except \"Hey, sounds like Mission Impossible!\" [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Hi MDesigner,

    what a great game cue. IMO.

    Is this game related to military (spy?) or something like that? I got that feeling somehow right from the beginning, I also noted some arabic flavour in the 2nd half of the piece?

    I love it, good job!

    Sam. Rings a lot nicer than the original demo you posted. The flute doesn\'t bug me anymore [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I agree with your feelings on that minute mark cue. The progression out of the opening to the middle section makes it much a fuller piece now. My only (minor) sniggle is that I wish that solo burpy tuba was a bit thicker. He sounds lonely and a little too up front. If he had a low end friend to play with... again minor and just a thought. I really like your muted horn. Would that be Marteen\'s (oops MAArten [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ) Frenchie?

    Nice, I like your middle section best \'tho

    falcon:

    Nope, not related to military.. not modern military anyway. But in a way, yes. Arabic? Hm, that surely was unintentional.. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I\'m not hearing it though.

    christianb:

    \"..a low end friend to play with\". That\'s funny [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Tuba not bassy enough? Too late now, the piece has been turned in! oh well.. thanks for the tip though. And yes, the muted horns are SAM Horns

    Ed:

    The flute run is AO \"flute section phrases\" i think it\'s called..not sure exactly.

    Thanks for listening, guys! Hope the client likes it too.. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Otherwise it\'s coming back my way for changes. Ugh!

    Hey Sam,

    Really great work as usual (even listening on my laptop in Tokyo!) but unfortunately the `Mission Impossible` theme does spring to mind immediately. It`s just such a recognisable riff and yours is very similar! I`m sure you`re not infringing copyright, but it is just too close for my ear. Sounds great though!!

    Good luck with the gig.

    Chris

    Sam,
    An Excellent Cue. Are you trying to do the music gaming thing full time or stick to graphics?

    Johnny:

    Trying to transition into game soundtracks full time. I still have my 9-5 job designing and programming web sites. I use that skill on the side to make a little extra cash because my day job\'s salary is a joke. But if I have a paying music gig, I usually leave work at 5pm sharp and get home and work on that until it\'s time for bed.
