Chase's Theme

Author Comments

This one took a lot of work. This was commissioned for a puzzle game based on burglars cracking safes. The developers wanted something influenced by Cowboy Bebop, Archer, and Venture Bros. This is the theme for the main character. The piece is written as a loop but has an intro section which would not be included on repeat. Because it actually loops to a midway point in the file, I can't upload it as a loop to NewGrounds.

Because this was a commissioned piece, I unfortunately cannot allow any use of it in other projects. That said, I'm always accepting new commissions so please get in touch if you'd like to work together (I'm especially interested in animation!) There were also quite a few demos that were rejected which I may finish and release under CC if I can find the time.

I'm always open to criticism. If you leave a low rating, please let me know why as it's the only way to get better.

Very good. The brass sound is spot on! (what did you use?).
The chord changes might be a bit cliche, the soloing might be overusing pentatonic, but this is what actually make it work in the context, this is what makes the instant connection with the audience.
Cool track, really enjoyed it.

Even if it was a commissioned track, if it wasn't under an exclusive license (that type of license should have at least three zeros at the end), you should be able to allow it's usage. You can allow the usage if people would credit the original product, or if you change a bit the flute solo; change a bit the arrangement; put some extra notes in the bass...etc (like Stravinsky did with his Firebird suites).

Thanks for listening and for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review! The horns are a blend of primarily Broadway Big Band and a bit of East West Hollywood Brass for certain sections/articulations. That said, BBB takes a TON of post production work to make it sound like anything worthwhile. The saxophones are decent, the trumpets are meh, and the trombones are terrible.

I did a few demos of more harmonically interesting tracks for this project, but in the end they ended up not working for the vibe the developers were going for. I'm hoping to find some time to compose some of those ideas out a bit more and find some uses for them.
