i find this simultaneously relaxing and unnerving xD
I'm totally tickled pink that we're getting some action here in the month of macabre! Cheers, folks!
And speaking of eerie tracks from old Interplay games, this one from Die By the Sword is deliciously rich in atmosphere. Perfect for a twilight walk in October...
Spoiler: Entering the Dark Tunnel
dang. interplay has ambient music Down! that, or im just a fan boy x3
Since we're entering that certain time of year I feel like I might as contribute a couple pieces again. Not Danganronpa related(though I will certainly post more music from it at some point again), I've decided to go with some rather unconventional choices with complex melodies.
Spoiler: The Bridge People No Longer Cross from Subterranian Animism
Desolation is the feeling this theme tries to capture. The theme itself isn't really scary but it does feature emotions such as uncertainty, anxiety, and loneliness/sadness that we would closely associate with fear.
Spoiler: Satori Maiden ~ 3rd eye from Subterranian Animism '
Here's a theme that features some rather traditional eerie instruments such as the harpsichord and theremin while taking that into a bit of a different direction while maintaining a rather eerie sound. From the words of the composer, this theme tries to be "dramatic and otherwordly".
Spoiler: Hartmann's Youkai Girl from Subterranian Animism
A psycho-sounding theme for a psycho girl. In the words of the composer "I tried to make it eerie and have the aura of a broken girl.
I think the eeriness is fitting for an extra boss." It definitely has that eeriness while the bridge reminding you this is a theme for a girl.
If anybody here gets sick of my analytical essays, just tell me to put a cork in it, and I'll gladly oblige. The purpose of these threads was for me to act as a sort of host/DJ, and respond to the selections you good people post in, a bit like a radio show with specific music themes (at times I really can't think of anything to add or say, though).
I've always found it curious how the language of music can conjure up strange, mysterious, and ghostly images in our minds.
That first track puts sombre thoughts in my head. I'm not sure why, but when I listen to its echoes and harmony, I get vague images of an eerie moonlit night, with a girl in despair, desperately trying to run from something. Don't ask me why. The more I think about it, the more creepy the track feels. I may be way off! (Love that moody artwork of the beautiful girl in track 1, by the way.)
These themes are probably most effective in the context of the original work, but on their lonesome they still ripple with uncertainty and gloom.
