Shoccata is heavily influenced by Danny Baranowsky's recently released soundtrack to the new Crypt of the Necrodancer DLC - Amplified.
That one song from the soundtrack is the Zone 5-3 Song, Six Feet Thunder, that (like all DannyB songs) hit me really hard! So good!
But what really made me do it is the baroque-ish, toccata-ish, fugue-like feel of the melody, which I really can't let go off.
In Shoccata - I also have a little bit of a Binding of Isaac's "Greed" melody touch in the main part ;)
Since I had the idea to do this but didn't really have the VSTs to get that techno/dance tone, I started looking around in the sounds I had and I realized that I've recently got me some that could really recreate that almost Spooky pad sound that I wanted.
I don't know if I'm making any sense.
You know the: WWAAAAAAAA WOOAAAAAA Thing
That Heartbeat kick at the end is definitely not a Necrodancer reference no nooo!
