Zinc Project - Fortress

Author Comments

This was done on-and-off as a side project between my main projects for my Recording Arts & Technology class at my school.

My process mainly consisted of going into the project for about a half hour, spending my time either adding in new portions, editing previous areas, or starting an entire new score. I originally wanted to bring all three scores together into the end, but I later decided it would be better to keep them separate as a three-score piece - kind of like an audio story. The first score is inspired by hardstyle techno, while the second is inspired by acid techno. The third, kind of a semi-fusion of hardstyle, rock, and jazz. That's up for opinions, though.

I named it Fortress because, while listening, I pictured the feel to be neo-industrial. However, I also imagined the story to be about a prisoner escaping his mechanical cage. After the factory is aware of his escape, they go on full alert and pursue the prisoner.

Then again, I'm a video game geek and spent too much time playing a bunch of Valve games.

I'm happy with the result (though not with the compressed bit rate) and wanted to share it here on Newgrounds. I've been here for a while, yet I haven't submitted anything yet, this being the first.
