Caketown[cute game music]

After about an hour and a half with some inspiration from playing around with the demo of some cute iPhone game I'm doing music for, I came up with some of the music for it. This is something you'll hear when decorating a cake with some crazy, cute and adorable decorations. Might not be my type of game but I do enjoy making all kinds of stuff even if it's totally different from what I usually do.

The point of this was to be some sort of loop, but I didn't want it to be boring, so I actually composed it out to be almost 3 minutes. It does have some moments with more energy, but not too much or else it'd lose that whimsical feel I was trying to go for.

Nothing complicated here compositionally;
(compositional notes as always for those who are interested)
Lydian and ionian chord scales are what I was trying to aim for. Using a lydian melody, but adding that D chord (one step higher from the tonal center) it might put you in the sense of C lydian, but during the modulation to Eb, you'll find your sense of tonality is rooted in C, more so than G as your tonal center; as Eb is related to C because of it's parallel mode. The relationships are quite easy to see from a broad perspective but if you think about it there's a lot of complex relationships between the implied harmonies.

i would love to play whatever game this would end up in :D
it's amazing and i love your use of different sounds and tunes.
it reminds me of old games though i've never heard anything like this before, at least nothing as brilliant as this piece!
keep up the fantastic work.
Oh besides would you mind telling me what program and plugin you use? cause i've always wanted to make music like this.

Thanks for listening! Sorry for the late response!

This music is inspiring. Thoroughly enjoyed this! The mood is so well kept and protected from the additional instruments that are added. All the instruments, I will add, are amazingly chosen. Keep this up!

i like it, it fits the mood

Really reminds me of peaceful villages in Zelda. Great job !
