New audio: “The Ryokan Chase”

July 15th, 2009
EWQL's "Play" being used with Ableton Live

Just as the title says, “The Ryokan Chase”, an easily loopable battle-music-esque short has been added to the player!  This one took approximately 3 hours to come together, and actually came out very close to what I had originally envisioned!  Hooray for my brain!

“The Ryokan Chase” is meant to portray a rough and tumble scene you’d find in a movie within which the plucky hero and his assistant are driven through a traditional Japanese inn; presumably by a group of thugs.  All you need to add are the overtly sarcastic (and intrinsically pun-riddled) quips and some sound effects!  Voila: instant blockbuster! ^_^

    I wasn’t aware Japan had drive-thru inns. ;)

    I can totally see this more in a video game setting then in a movie, but in some cases (*cough* MGS4 *cough*) the line is a bit blurred. It certainly leaves me wanting more though!

    This is an “on-foot” chase, for sure! Paper doors must be broken down!

    I will likely expand on this track at some point (seeing as it’s so short and single-minded), but I wanted the rough draft up: I think it diverges musically in a significant way from the other stuff I have in the player at the moment.

    I’ve listened to so many videogame music and movie soundtracks in my life that now I’m not sure I can separate the two in my head! I’m okay with it being “videogamey” though.
