(Adobe Flash required for audio player)

This is part of a little soundtrack I was asked to compose for an upcoming RPG named Taiga by friend Douglass Hughes. The game is set to have a dark, creepy, minimalistic feel, and I did my best to characterize it with the reduced instrumentation I was asked to use.

At one point, the player emerges from the forest to arrive at the imposing home of “God”, a man who created the local town and possesses vast powers. God is described as being “silly, sarcastic and mean”, and this corresponding tune plays on while the player explores his grand dwelling.

Written & recorded with Sibelius.

Note: Song is subject to being modified at a later date as the game is finalized.

Taiga Soundtrack (#5)
Meeting Deity

This track plays during the player’s meeting with the Deity Fox, a powerful but frustrated being who is quite unhappy with her current living arrangements. The song is meant to segue from ‘Forest’ during the tense encounter.

Written & recorded with Sibelius.

Taiga Soundtrack (#4)

This is part of a little soundtrack I was asked to compose for an upcoming RPG named Taiga by friend Douglass Hughes. The game is set to have a dark, creepy, minimalistic feel, and I did my best to characterize it with the reduced instrumentation I was asked to use.

Douglass asked me to split the old ‘Forest and Snow’ in two for more technical reasons, so I redesigned the ‘Forest’ part into this. It’s made to segue seamlessly into ‘Meeting Deity’ when the player encounters the Deity Fox deep in said forest.

Written & recorded with Sibelius.
