January 28, 2013 Leave a comment

Hi there, how are you guys doing?

Just wanted to share a new little piece of recording I’ve just done (like, REALLY just now, a few minutes ago lol)… Its intent is to help us to cleanse our soul. :)

Next week we’ll be back with our commented portfolio. See ya!


Commented Portfolio: Tracks #4 and #5

January 21, 2013 1 comment

Hi there people, how have you been?

Proceeding with the commented portfolio here we go with two more tracks. :)

#4 Nocturne #100 (sketch)

An acoustic guitar sketch (the hundredth as you can see lol), this one was written in the wee, wee hours… :) As I’ve been doing for some time now it has a fair amount of FX layers to make it… fatter. lol

#5 Zangief’s Theme [Street Fighter 25th Anniversary] – julian ozuka

Well, I’m really proud of this one. :) Last year Capcom (the famous videogame producer) promoted a world-wide contest looking for music and visual art made by fans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter series. I’m glad to say I was choosen to be  a part of it!

Just like the track before, it’s an acoustic rendition drenched in post-production FXs. I wanted to make Zangief’s theme to sound like steps of a giant coming our way–Zangief is all about that after all, huh? ;)

See ya next week!

Commented Portfolio: Tracks #1 To #3

Hi there people, how are you doing?

I decided to share some thoughts on the tracks created for the portfolio… That could be useful for those intending to be creative with their music on how to develop an idea until it becomes real. :)

#1 RetroBike: Start! (ozuka)

This works as a start-up tune, a short melodic riff to aware players (in case of a videogame soundtrack, mind you) to be prepared and focused for the action about to start. Take a look at the Atari 2600 version of Pac Man for a good reference.

It has a nice retro feel due to my customized 8-bit NES SoundFont database. -.-

#2 Level 01 (Loop) [by ozuka]

This one was written for the first level of a comic shooter indie videogame. The up-beat mood was mandatory in this case since it goes for cheering the player up and inviting them to enjoy the ride. :)

Same SoundFont file as above.

#3 B – So Walk (ozuka)

One of the very first videogame soundtrack experiments I ever did, it’s a… sunny country theme. lol Inspired by the Harvest Moon series, what I like most here is how the clarinet fells good as the main melody maker–despite not being a traditional country instrument and all.

That’s it for now, more next Monday. ;)

Here Is My Music Portfolio, Nice To Meet You. :) Happy New Year!

Hi there people, how have you been?

Well, another year has started and I can’t wait to do more and more works on soundtrack music!

For that I’ll start sharing a nice portfolio of things I did before and here I’m hoping I’ll have even more opportunities this time around. Enjoy it!

Shine, new year!

Shine, new year!

Happy New Year! (Small Vacation)
