I'm also working on a Steampunk-ish game. Thanks for this inspiration. Sounds amazing. :)
fantastic work i love the percussion with the celtic music! great work
F*&K YES! My name happens to be Celtic, ((It bein Kailen, meaning "Warrior")), and I do like Steampunk related things. This, I like. Make a longer version, maybe?
fucking mind blowing dude! i love this song
As a Celtic music afficionado, I quite like this little piece of music, and would like to hear an extended version, complete with a counter-melody.... Standard Irish pub fare would involve 1) tuneset - bodhran solo - tuneset, or 2) a simple Irish jig. I don't doubt you've got the instrumentation for those, so whichever way you make the extended version, I will be looking forward to that. As you can tell, my only pickle is that it is short. I do understand that it's meant as ambience, but it ultimately does depend on how big the game is etc.
I can forgive the percussions (there not being a bodhran would otherwise be a travesty!), because it is meant to be steampunk after all.
Length aside, I truly enjoyed this. One, this is something for me to beat the bodhran to, and two, I love the melody and the chords. Sounds contemporary Irish, and I wouldn't have it any other way. <3
Thank you for taking the time to listen to the piece!
I'm not very familiar with traditional Celtic forms. Do you think you could possibly shoot me a short PM with the characteristics of a jig vs. a ternary tunset/solo/tuneset? I couldn't really find much info on them just searching around. Also, countermelody-wise, what would you suggest for the instrumentation? Right now I have a bagpipe drone for the accompanying harmonies, and acoustic guitar/violin for primarily melodic sections.
It's great to hear positive feedback from someone who is an expert in the field!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
