I wrote this song a year ago for Alright Productions as theme song for their youtube videos where they would teach people to play fighting games at a competitive level. Unfortunately they haven't made those videos (yet). They don't respond to my emails anymore, so I've decided to just upload this here.

It's inspired by old fashioned early 90s fighting game openings, because that's what the opening cinematic of the youtube videos looked like.

SourJovis responds:

Thanks! I appreciate your words. This was a commission. I was asked to make a 14 second intro song for a YouTube channel, so I made several versions of one song. This is the full version and the longest. I thought about making a longer version of this song. A "full" song, over 3 minutes long. I will someday, though I don't know when or how yet.


SourJovis responds:


I like the heavy guitar and how that meshes with the pensive synth arpeggios. It has a really interesting mood - apprehensive and then blissful. I will say that the synth arps got buried in the mix later on, though. The ending was cool, and I'm sure it would work really well as the title music for a videogame. The instruments and atmosphere are great, though. Keep up the good work. ;)

SourJovis responds:

Thank you. Glad you liked it.
- Nice description of the song.
- There are a lot of instruments in this mix, so it's difficult to make them all stand out, but I believe the reason you say the arpeggios are drowned out is because there isn't as much of them as you think. The synth arpeggio loop stops at 0:23. After that there's just the ocasional arpeggio that each lasts for only about 1 to 2 seconds. They are at 0:27, 0:37, 0:41, 0:47 and 0:51. On top of that the start and end notes are the softest so it's hard to tell when they begin exactly, but all things considedered I think you can hear them fairly well.
- I will keep it up ;)
