Hey gang, It's Sean.
When first thinking about the score, I put together playlists of inspiring music, things I can immerse myself in that will start my brain along the right path towards finding the sound of a game. I'd like to share some of the early inspirations for Beacon 88 with all of our fans out there. You'll just have to open Spotify and follow this link: Beacon 88 Playlist 1
Now if you've been following my previous posts you'll notice not much in these examples sounds like the Scorescape I had posted earlier. This is one of the best parts about developing! Let me explain.
When I look for music that inspires me, I'm not looking for instrumentation or formats or textures, I'm simply looking for the overall affect of the music, like a compass...but for feelings! There has to be something underneath all that technical information that gets at the heart of what I want my score to say. These examples gave me part of what I needed, but there was so much more to say about Beacon 88. I'm still finding new music every day to inspire me, so I'll keep you updated.
Updates on our games, our process, and the joys of being Mobius Digital.
