Music in visual novels

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Hey there, Mixtape speaking.

Today I thought I’d talk about music in visual novels, as the title says. Eastern Starlight Romance is the first VN I’m making music for, and so far it’s been a fun, but difficult experience. I’ll just line up the problems I’ve run into first, and discuss them afterwards:

  • Looping
  • Timing
  • Arrangement

Those are the major ones. (more…)

Maestro! Music, please.

Mixtape here. Another late introduction, but better late than never. Music has always been one of my favourite things to deal with, both listening and playing. That has also extended to composing and arranging in the last year or so. But of course, that’s not what you want to hear. You want to hear actual music.

Well, sadly, there won’t be any here for you today. You’ll have to wait for the demo. But I think there’s around 5-6 tracks in it, so hopefully you won’t be disappointed. Even though they are, as expected, still in need of final touches.

There’s an exception to every rule, but generally we’re using stage themes as background tracks, with the boss fight themes in more serious, dramatic scenes. Or perhaps just a lighthearted encounter with Flandre. (Her theme is oh so cheery)

Now I head back into my world of music, as there’s still a lot to be done. Far more than I thought at first, to be honest. I might write up another post after the demo has been released, we’ll see.

Wish me luck!
