Artpocalypse Now Music Request 2011-02-25 20:52:30

Greetings Audio Forum,

I have an art collaboration in the making: Artpocalypse Now, and I was wondering if any of you fine folks know of any audio or would be willing to prepare audio that, you feel, would fit the bill for an apocalypse.

I would like at least two tracks, one for the menu and one for the slide show.

I've looked a bit in the Audio Portal and I couldn't find anything that I really liked, so I was hoping that someone with more experience with the Audio Portal and an ear for good music might be able to help a brother out.

I will keep looking so any hints or tips for finding good audio are welcome as well.

Thanks for your time.

Nae sent me.

This is sort of post-Apocalyptic-yet-hopeful, so it might work as menu / credits music.

I'll give'r a try.

How long would you like it? Any specific elements you want in there - classical, some rock, electronica-esque?

Some great stuff coming in, I'm glad people are interested. I'm going to keep mulling these over, but my first impressions are as follows:

This is quite nice, but it might be a bit too hopeful sounding for what I'm looking for. It could work, but I think a bit more doom and gloom would fit a bit better.

Good stuff.
Cataclysmic Puppeteer and Faith sold to Evil are good but a bit to intense, I think.
I also think that -SOES-Ghelo's unleashed is a bit too synthetic sounding for what I'm looking for, if you know what I mean..?

Nice, I'm going to keep this one in mind for the slide show, but again, it might be a bit too tech sounding.

--

I hope I'm not sounding too picky, here. I really do think these suggestions are quality pieces, I'm just not sure they will fit the collab.

A loop would be awesome, long enough to not get repetitive though. I can't see using something that is too electronic sounding. Classical/orchestral would work the best, I think. I'm not really good at descriptives but I found this track in the AP:

  • Valkyrie Chosen
    Valkyrie Chosen by ZStriefel

    Click to listen.

    Score
    4.34 / 5.00
    Type
    Loop
    Genre
    Classical
    Popularity
    1,107 Views

and I think it would work really well for the menu, so something that could, more or less, follow along with that piece would be wonderful.

I whipped up a draft of what I envisioned for the menu here, maybe that could give you an idea of the kind of mood I have envisioned. A lot of the pieces in the collab, however, are comical, but I'm not really sure how that could be reflected in the music.

--

Thank you guys so much for your help and interest so far!

This MIGHT work for the slideshow. Not sure though, it might be too energetic to really fit. The song it's based on was supposed to be an apocalyptic theme though, so we'll see:

Hopefully depending on the mood of the piece you're creating some of these may be of use :)

Heh, I'm a little bit overwhelmed at the amount of responses here (and a few PMs too).

I may have to include more than one track for the slide show (I think I'm going to go with the Valkyrie Chosen by ZStriefel for the menu), but I also want to be able to credit as many of the visual artists as I can, so I think that only one composer (who can make more than one track if they wish) would be the best fit.

I don't want anyone to feel burned, but I can't use every suggestion, nor every custom track. If you want to make a new piece for this, that's up to you, but, like I said, I can't use everyones music, so I'm going to have to pick what I feel suits the collab the best in the end.

As for suggestions so far:

I can see that there is a lot of talent in this forum and although I'm hearing a lot of quality tracks, I'm not really seeing any of the suggestions quite fitting the collab as well as they could.

--

I'm looking forward to any original works that keep the theme in mind.

Alright, the composition is done.

I based it on the Valkyrie Chosen piece, attempting to maintain the epic, uneasy sound of the original ambient song. If you have feedback, suggestions, changes, etc, let me know.

I think you'll be pleased with it, though.

Here's a midi of it until I can attach some more realistic samples to the piece.

Sorry for the late response, I've been off of NG for a few days.

I'll be going through the rest of the suggested audio now. I'm hoping there will be something great. =]
