Here is the second entry of the Project: Composition!
Genre / Style : Easy Listening / Ambient / Chill Out / New Age
Situation / Place : Menu, Lobby’s music
Mood : Scary
Support Tarot Card : None
Note : Since I got a really good idea what I wanted to do with these three cards, I decided not to pull Tarot Card this time. I used “Ambient” atmosphere to create menu / lobby’s music with flavor of horror.
Apple just released Logic Pro X and I really liked what it offers!
Today, Logic Pro X is added to my music workstations! =)

Here is the very first entry of the Project: Composition!
Genre / Style : Techno, Electronica, D&B
Situation / Place : House, mansion, person (hero, friend, lover, enemy) or monster’s theme
Mood : Mad / Distorted / Crazy
Support Tarot Card : 5 of Swords - A guy walks away from others. He holds swords and moves forward, leaving people who he stole the swords from behind.
Note : Since I pulled ”5 of Swords” tarot card, I decided to go with a “person” (Situation / Place). Also, since its mood is “Mad / Distorted / Crazy” I decided to use eerie Music Box sound in the song to add a weird effect. Since the man in the Tarot card looks confident, I decided to make the song somewhat narcissistic.
After everything, I decided to create a piece based on my imagining of this person giving a narcissistic speech to the world as a villain.
"Project: Composition" is a challenge where I pull random cards from the piles of "Genre / Style", "Situation / Place" and "Mood", combine them, and make music which matches the theme.
This project is to push my creativity further as well as just for fun!
Here are the rules : 1. Draw three cards from three piles. The piles are as follows : Genre / Style, Situation / place, and Mood. 2. Draw a tarot card to reference for the situation / imagination. 3. Create a piece based on the selected cards. 4. Upload the piece on SoundCloud and blog about it here.
I’ll do this at least once a month, unless there’s a big project going on.
The pieces created within this project will be available in our upcoming Royalty Free Music store, which I’m planning to launch this year. If you hear a piece you like, be sure to check with us again!
