I thought this might be a good theme for Shardanna, and the pirates* – and the port city, Aravek: or Dalenrath’s Navy. There definitely is a seafarer’s theme implied by the main melodies of the Harpsichord..
This ( 4 track ) version is my favorite, so far:
These are the various tracks of the current recordings ** [ I am aware at 1:13, the bass and harpsichord are unsynchronized; for the first few seconds. These recordings are first drafts, to get the composition roughly recorded. ( maybe stand-in demo, soundtrack, to use in Renpy, and for the next set of interactions with voice actresses)
I spent all of April 3rd, playing the keyboard parts on a stand which had minor ‘shaking’ – as I started to play faster, and heavier ( with chords that I needed the keyboard to remain still, to hit accurately); finally, in the evening I moved the keyboard to a sturdy table my dad built 20 years ago; and then completed the current recording; with only ‘minor’ errors.
***The 5 Track version, is a first take with drums – ( These typically, don’t sound ideal, until doing multiple takes, and matching the drum sounds, to the melody. It was a long day, of replaying the many chords, melodies, I had made up that morning; so I, didn’t have time, left to work on the drums. ( If I get time, I may work on it – or, after I read the tutorial pdf, I can learn to splice audacity, and use like a multi track recorder.
Composing and performing require different aspects; the performing aspect, improves with daily practice; but often, the music, can be ‘composed’ in less than a day. So, when I make up some melodies, it usually, is not something I can play proficiently, repeatedly, at the outset.
* (still building that story: generally features A red haired pirate woman/leader, and her younger apprentice ( an early appearance – like a prequel; for a main character of my first ‘epic’ story arc – for Carenna; and a newer one, Nekki – the robot builder.)
** I have been prioritizing key reference studies, from my PC.( currently working on a hooded, skull character – useful for the Wikkoth priests).
