Altruistic Deception (V2)

Author Comments

So I tried rewriting Altruistic Deception, and I think I came up with something better than what it first was, although it feels more like a boss battle taking place in the pine forests rather than in a secluded factory in the middle of nowhere. (I am actually planning on making a bullet hell game starring my OCs with Danmakufu, but progress on it has been... slow.)


- Digital Night (original composition)

- Catastrophe in Bhava-Agra (Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody)

- Tonight Stars an Easygoing Egoist (Touhou 15.5: Antimony of Common Flowers)

- The Nutshack Theme (?)

- Theme of Bloodstained: Ritual of Night

Frankly, I think I was messing around with ways to change the chord progression since I felt I was using the VI-VII-i progression too often. I had watched a few videos on reharmonization and music theory (despite not having much of a background on it), and I was just experimenting with how the song can sound. I still modulated between different keys, as typical of the Touhou style. As for the motifs, I don't even think that most of them were that prominent enough to be noticed, except for the Touhou motifs. Personally, I've confused "Catastrophe in Bhava-Agra" with "Tonight Stars an Easygoing Egoist" whenever I hum it to myself.
