Music and sound design for “The SockKids Learn How to Prevent Bullying.”
It is ideal for moments in your video game or movie in which you want to inject some tension or drama. Similar pieces of music may also be found in video games such as The Elder Scrolls series, and many others in which there is an intense moment.
It is inspired by music from the Metal Gear Solid and Far Cry series, and therefore is perfect for any moments of intrigue or tension which you want to underscore in your film, game, or television show.
In its original form, it is similar in feel to the “Zora’s Domain” theme from the Legend of Zelda series, and so is fitting for any moments in which you wish to create a peaceful, natural feel in your video game of film.
Listeners might describe this track as a slowed down, more thoughtful cousin to the famous “Popcorn Song” made famous by Hot Butter. It would be perfect to use in your game or film to provide a tense backdrop to any moment.
Its dramatic feel has a lot in common with music from the early Fire Emblem titles, making it perfect for any video game in which you want to create an epic yet understated feel.
The 150 second piece is seamlessly loopable and features significant tension and release, providing the player with a dynamic range of emotions. Yet, even with continuous repetition, one’s ears will never grow weary of experiencing the acoustic rivers and valleys of this incredible soundtrack!
Drawing inspiration from late 90s “Big Beats” artists such as Fatboy Slim and The Chemical Brothers, but adding an 8-bit twist, this piece is perfect as a theme for your video game or film, or as backing music for things such as a party scene.
Similar music can be found in the works of many modern chiptune composers, as the piece has a uniquely Game Boy feel to it. The added beats make it ideal for any number of uses, especially as an underscore for a game or movie in any bright, cheerful moments.
This soundtrack is suited for any video game, television show, or any other project in which you wish to underscore a key moment with an epic piece of music. Similar pieces may be found in dramatic moments of video games, such as the Final Fantasy series or Destiny.
The soundtrack is similar to pieces one might find in games such as the Final Fantasy series, as well as in many adventure/RPG games. One might also find this type of music in many fantasy films, such as the Lord of the Rings series, or in action films like National Treasure.
