I told you guys i was going to make another song. It'ss infact a composition I did back in 2001/2002 inspired by the longest journey, just like the other tune I did. (that was from hearing the café jukebox playing these tunes all the time in the fringe). 

I sent it for submission to our copyright organisation but never published it really. I made a "definite" version of it now.

This is an inspirational flight of crow of what he sees when flying over the island of Alais.

 

note: It's gonna be part of my fourth E.P. called wind. Where i'm putting all kind of tracks on inspired by other games like trackmania, and left 4 dead (where I made original music for on one of the expansion campaigns). If everyone is crazy against this, now it's the time to mention your objections. BUT, the songs will ALWAYS be available free on soundcloud. I've been screaming hard enough about how it was unfair that we couldn't do a contest, and that I wanted to give these songs for free. So they still are and always will be. The only thing that would happen if that when people would stream them on spotify or Itunes (and when soundcloud starts their monetisation in europe) i'll receive some cents. But I'm right now paying much more than I' can get out of it. But I need the exposure.

It could be that rtg or valve is going to say "hey , you got inspired by our work". But I have the feeling it's not immoral. THere's no melodies that are "stolen", it's just me thinking about alais and the jukebox/fringe and creating stuff.

So there's that, enjoy this song:

I also took another pass extracting audio from dfc to finally make that testicles meme song, should it be trap or EDM ? :P

Awesome.

I think if Ragnar didn't want to inspire people with TLJ, then he rolled a critical fail. Anyway, I haven't listened to your track, but I am looking forward to it.

I don't see why anyone would be against your adding a new track to the album. I think it's great! I hope more people will write music inspired by the TLJ/DF universe.

 

I believe you should add the tag #DFCBonusTrack to make your track "official". ;)

 

 

(some shameful publicity, I also made a bonus track last year: http://soundcloud.co...here-dreams-die)

Beautiful song, I totally got a flight feeling from it, like almost in a slow motion way, looking down at a wonderfull island. :)

 

And it's a big difference in stealing/plagiarize others work and to be inspired by said work; I'm far from an expert but I think you have nothing to worry about there. (Neither in terms of copyright or how other people sees it.) :)

thx, (and it appeared that I also liked the song posted above a long time ago, as it's a bit in my spectrum of genres that I like to make and listen to).

Btw, I see you had the same problem I was just experiencing trying to get the Soundcloud BBM code thing to work. Anyone know a work-around ?

 

 

The Track is outstanding, love it !

According to Morten's instructions, you have to paste in the song's track ID #. Not the link. ...But I'm trying that and it's still not working for some reason.  :wacko:

 

I have to be doing something wrong. Going to mess with it and see if I can figure it out.

Got it. 
 


 
You have to go get the embed link in soundcloud and just use the 9 digit track ID. Then when you use the button here, you have to put something in the top box to get it to work. So if you don't want the button to be a special color, just put a space there. So the code for the above would look like this:

EDIT: PS the song is great. :D Probably should have posted that first, but I got distracted problem solving. >>;

I listened to the track.  I think it is really great!  Would you like to add it to the soundcloud group?

I liked the track. It was good :)

 

(Thanks for figuring it out, Erika, it was bugging me and I wasn't able to solve it)

 

(edit: Oh, and inspiration isn't protected by copyright. So even if they wanted to, Funcom or RTG couldn't object to you monetizing the song. Not that they would.)

Ah, I tried doing it with the digit thing though and it didn't work. I guess you have to do it a certain way then, because I really remember having it like that, but without the '''s :P Anyway, thanks for the response, and support. I feel like I'm commiting a bit of treason by wanting it to add to youtube/spotify, as I had always said it was free. But the point is, as long as everyone can listen to it "for free", I hope everyone is OK with it.

I read a blog post on this recently which kinda makes sense, and I admitedly overreacted a bit back in the time when I heard the music contest was going to be canaceld. However you could actually make sense of it as "me being denied to make promotion for myself", so in a weird sense, I was already understanding what he says in this blog:

http://8dio.com/blog...music-industry/

BTW: added it to that group, although it's laughably late. But I need to sometimes rest from making music, tinnitus killing the party here, and I need to dose production or I'll always have nasty sleepless nights cause of that.

By the way, rerecording Ballad of the Beans is still on the agenda. I just need more hours in the day...

I changed around nights in propast a bit. It's inspired by tlj, but to have it on itunes and spotify means that I must avoid risks of people being upset that I use "propast". Better safe than sorry, so I used a google translator title, Noci Z Priepast' . 

I made the final "master" yesterday and changed some stuff I always had the idea for this song to start in a rather satirical way, To me, Jazz music strikes a special emotional cord. I see cats and mice chasing eachother, nutty inspectors in black/white movies investigating a crimescene with his magnifying glass, goofy musicians having fun on stage, rusty clubs with people interacting with alcohol. It's like a light flavor of "funny maffia". It always invokes a frivolous feeling with me. I just feel I need to "troll" a bit, by making it start totally out of whack. I also purposely saved at 32k and then resampled to 44k to give it that "rusty" touch, and narrowed the stereofield.

Another example of exploiting enthousiasm.

Is there are an emoticon of a puppy cocking its head to the side curiously and adorably?  Imagine that here.

 

Hi.  I never thought I'd see this thread again.  It's so good to see you.

 

What do you mean "exploiting enthusiasm"?

Can i just say I feel bad about promising a new version of The Ballad of the Beans, and not delivering? Not sure I'll ever have time now, music is unfortunately a downplayed part of my life at the moment...

I just did soemthing.

I thought it would be cool to infuse nostalgia in the hospital room soundtrack by making it sound slightly differently, it's like ... a redux (empty hospitalroom devoid of Zoë) version.



I wanna work on it some more, need to humanize the piano a bit, AND her voice, my god she has huge lungs, it's almost inhuman :P
