Locke's Theme


Author Comments

This is the sneakier slower theme for a character in a puzzle game I worked on based on burglar's cracking safes. This one had to be smoother and more slick than Chase's Theme (listen to that track here: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/693657)

Influences for this definitely came from Venture Bros, Henry Mancini, and James Bond.

Because this was a commissioned track, it unfortunately is not available for use in any other projects. That said, I'd be happy to create new music if you'd like to commission a new work (I'm especially interested in working on animation). There are a handful of tracks that didn't make the cut for this game. Should I find the time to finish those up, I'll probably release them under a CC license.

Constructive criticism is always encouraged. If you give the track a low rating, please let me know why as it's the only way to improve.


Amazing smooth jazz piece. Love the background percussion and the guitar mixed with the sax adds an air of mystery that really helps solidify the piece as a sound track you'd hear in a detective movie. Love how the piece seamlessly loops to make one large tone.

Thanks! It was a really fun project to work on. I wish I had the opportunity to do more stuff like this.

When I read "Locke", my mind went straight to Final Fantasy 3. The description didn't help deter me away from that either, haha. Good piece!

Thanks! Locke is the name the developers came up with for one of the characters. I don't know how influential Final Fantasy III was on that decision, but I'm guessing it has more to do with the fact that the characters pick locks ;)
