This song is not in a battle


This is an original 8-bit tune that I came up with, which is a modification of a videogame tune I did a while back. I still might tweak some things, but this is the general layout. I'm entering this into a competition with the theme "8-bit Christmas". I'm pleased with the result so far. Also, I have considered taking this melody and progression and offering them up for a Christmas collab in discussion here: http://forum.bandamp.com/The_Pit/3831.html

In terms of collabing on this, I don't have lyrics or a vocal melody to work with... maybe later, but if anyone wants to write lyrics for it, the arrangement of the verse/chorus/bridge sections can be completely rearranged to form a skeleton to work up from, kinda like what happened with the sudden sunset collab. There were some parts I made in the older version of this (a non 8-bit tune) that may work well integrated with proper instruments, so I could possibly blend synths into the track.

But if anyone wants to raise their hand for lyrics/guitar/bass/vocals, anything to get this off the ground, and further discussion would likely follow.

Enjoy the song.

Yeah, some female vox would work with a sort of 90's sound and feel.

Good luck in the competition.


Merry Christmas!!

This so reminds me of Here In Your Arms by Hello Goodbye....I think the main melody is the vox line in it's self
Can only take so much of the midi but this is definitely catchy and constructed well..

hey, thanks for the comments.
I've work on this a bit more so that the rest of the song is more up to the standard of the main melody, that was my one main issue.
Thanks again, it's great to get this feedback from you guys.

Cheers

It's the ghost in the machine! 

WB: Not very Christmasy is it !!?? I thought I'd try my hand at some words but I wouldent know what to say this way.
Could you put vocals to computer game music any way?

Even though I cant get into this kind of music in any form, it has a great structure and melody, if it were slowed down and done by a band it would be excellent!  Probably a number one! lol

thanks, pagan, kings, flyer.

Well, the idea I've discussed is like kings said, have it played as a band would play it, get rid of the 8-bit video game sounds and replace it with some real stuff, like the sudden sunset collab.

I've got an updated version that I'll probably upload today, which fills the harmony out a lot more and adds a little bit more variation into the mix.

Cheers, guys.
