Episode 1 of Venturescape comes out next Friday! AHH! I'm excited. With 2 episodes a month, there's still time to compose music for future episodes, as I need music here and there. Most of the time I ask for songs that are already made that would fit, but I've had a couple lovely folks composing music for me for a couple episodes as well.
If you want to provide a track you've made, or want to compose a custom piece for the series, here's a guide below as to what kind of music I'm looking for, for each episode. I'd need the music a week in advance. You might get a better idea once Episode 1 comes out next week.
Episode 3 (keep in mind, this comes out in 5 weeks):
About a girl named Krystal who's a young librarian, scared of love and yet indulges in Romance novels. Wants to find that true love, but keeps getting betrayed. She loves to play the piano, so a lot of piano music would be needed for this episode, and some cinematic music like ambient mysterious vibes, emotional stuff. Two chase scenes where she's in danger running away (tiny bit of a spoiler but not much).
Same girl, but this time, soft orchestral music with strings and piano and all, something emotional and sad, yet hopeful. Then, there's expedition music needed, maybe creepy ambient music, something unsettling. The world is in turmoil.
A girl named Noel who is in highschool and loves to write stories. She's very shy, and soft-spoken. One piece needed is for a heart-wrenching scene, something bad happens to break her heart. Something very sad and emotional, preferably with piano and other elements. I'm open to suggestions, maybe jazz for the more casual scenes where she's talking to a friend.
There would be a lot of upbeat music when she's talking to people, so I'm open for suggestions on that. There are fantasy elements in this episode, so something whimsical, something Impressionist Classical would fit nicely, something you would hear in a 90's children's film where it sparks the imagination and fills your heart with wonder like the character. Something mystical and magical.
About a girl named Rose, little girl. She talks about her big brother Jacob who works for a drug research lab (making medicine). She's also very shy, and it's hard for her to make friends, she's been abandoned a lot. She misses her parents. This episode would be more focused on her sadness, she's very unhappy, so that would be the tone of the music.
It would be sad throughout, except for a couple scenes which would have emotional music, not too sad, but a little sad transforming into something hopeful and positive. One scene has that creepy ambient vibe where she's completely alone unexpectedly.
This one is about her big brother, Jacob. He's a scientist, very analytical about everything, he over-analyzes everything, takes things too seriously. He needs a chill pill. He's very intelligent and a gentleman, he cares very much for his little sister, Rose, and wants to protect her. Although he is uptight, not always. I'm even open for experimental technology sounding music in this.
One scene will be tense and dangerous where he has to sneak around or he could die (semi-spoilery? no he doesn't die) so, tense cinematic music. Much expedition in this episode, probably a lot of cinematic music, more calm ambient cinematic stuff.
I think of @ForgottenDawn for this sort of stuff, his music would be what I have in mind.
Back to one of the main characters (not telling which one, it's a surprise). At first there would be guitar music playing, something light and casual, like a journey. Someone strolling into town. Then, bar music, something along the lines of Blues or Southern Rock comes to mind. Then, cinematic music or rock music, something that's basically battle music like in anime.
Lots of expedition here too, so there will be a couple tense scenes so tense soft cinematic music? Maybe a couple horror tracks in that sense? Then, something soft like at the end of Jurassic Park, something that cues "this is the end of Season 1 of the series", but softer, something uplifting and positive.
I have an Episode 9 planned but that would mostly be Jazz, and so on. Episode 9 would be an extra episode that's more like a filler episode. If you want to compose for any of these scenes in any of these episodes, or have tracks that would fit the mood, let me know! I'm already doing most of the work for the series so besides making the theme song, I don't have the time to make more music for it.
Let me know! :)
