I wasn’t sure I’d have a video to post this week, as I’ve been re-evaluating my piano technique, so don’t have any performances ready, and things were going pretty slowly compositionally.
That said, I have been working on one composition this week – a new Safe Room theme for an upcoming EP/album (I’m not sure on the number of tracks that will be on it yet). Safe Room themes originated in the Resident Evil games and are designed to make the player feel safe while also creating unease that they must head back out into danger.
I’d noticed with the previous ones that I wrote, I was tending towards similar chord progressions, so I took some influence from Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu for this one. I actually reworked the whole thing today as it was sounding a bit too similar to the previous ones I wrote. I’d be glad to hear what you think of it – hopefully it’s something relaxing to listen to.
