Oh god did this give me HELL to mix,, but alas, here she is somehow finished in 4 hours!

I always thought it would be super fun to make a battle theme for myself so I made one! I imagined it as some really critical battle with probably a lot riding on whether you win or lose against me lol. I tried to use instruments and a flow that I thought could kind of sum up my personality (since all good character battle themes always have music that encompass different aspects of their personality) while also keeping in mind that it's a battle so we need the cool hype elements and chaos!

I'm actually very curious as to what listeners think my personality would be based on this song to see if I articulated certain aspects correctly!

This was super fun to arrange but a NIGHTMARE to mix so it's def not perfect but I tried my darndest and you gotta deal with it because I REFUSE to touch this piece any longer hehe. >:)

This was also a really interesting track to balance out musically for me, since I do love a driving bassline, but for this piece I chose really droney and wubby kind of basses, so I had to try and fill in the middle spaces and rhythm carefully so I didn't drown out or super oversaturate the main melody lines.

In all, this was really good practice and I learned a lot and I hope you enjoy it! :D

(also sidenote but my personal favorite part of this is how I broke up the piano phrasings during the triplet parts,, it makes me nut profusely)

Sounds like you're a flying bullet hell boss or a fast-paced Nintendo platformer boss. Either way I'm getting Japanese video game vibes here, but I think that's mainly because of the way the super-fast piano is written. I like how you incorporated a lot of ethereal-sounding elements, but also kept it sounding fast-paced.

this a bop but like, a big bop

This one Def reminds me of a mix of Planet Wisp and Aquarium Park from Sonic Colors. But a D&B version. Another piece of yours that just went STUPID, I'm just NOW discovering you!?!?

So much going on! In a good way. Such an experience. <3
