My second submission! For this exercise, I sought a fast drum and bass style piece that still incorporated orchestral elements. I remembered MGS2's boss theme was a rather uptempo piece that utilized a catchy string hook in the beginning. I found an mp3, slowed it down, and literally reverse-engineered the parts for an hour (the strings and trombone). Then I created the beat and added in synth voices that I felt fit the feel. For the middle section, I utilized a string ostinato pattern found in Laguna's battle theme from FF8 and set it to a minor key. I used a melody from some years back and that was that. Please comment and let me know what I can do better. It's my first exercise in drum and bass.
