(No, “Cat Concerto” is not the new name for “Cat Project”.)
I haven’t had much time to work on “Cat Project” this week; I had to take care of a friend’s dog and bird (no cats though, except for a surprise visitor in the backyard). So the game is pretty much the same as it was last week. However, I did get a chance to work on some of the background music for the game, which I’ve neglected to talk about since I started this project.
Currently, I have two tracks to show. To give a bit of background, both of them are “hand-me-down” tracks; music that was composed for other projects that got cancelled that I fixed up and remixed for this one. No point in letting them go to waste. The first one is the title theme:
I don’t know if it is technically a waltz (maybe it’s a minuet, or some perverted fusion of the two, who knows?), but I just call it that out of habit. In any case, it’s a fuzzy, lighthearted track that sets the mood for the game.
Next up is a level theme track thing; it’s a work-in-progress:
The vaguely “meow”-sounding lead synth in the second half of the track is a patch I accidentally made with fiddling and twiddling around with the knobs on the Dreamstation DXi2. It seems appropriate for the subject matter at hand and I kinda like it. I just hope the novelty doesn’t wear off to quickly.
