Listener Discretion is advised

Hey there, boys and girls,
dear friends and readers.


(btw: That >whoops< is delicious!!! Sweet Jesus!!!)
Since there is quite a bit going on in the Zombase kitchen, I was thinking, maybe this is a good time to show you guys some results of the musical work it did so far.
It’s not much since I didn’t have much time (u know, I got hospitalized because I fell of a cliff an broke two legs and then I lost my eyesight on the right side and then somebody broke my nose, my girlfriend left me and then my car broke down… … well, I’m just fooling’ around… but I was really busy).

Anyway:

This is considered to be the Main Theme.
Although it is not finished yet, it sure has it’s… well, u know… swagger. I like it pretty much, either do the girls.

And this one right here is the first stage BGM you’ll get to hear in-game. It’s not too much, it’s pretty polite and down to earth and not upsetting anyone… I hope so.

Alright, and here’s Lizzy’s theme. Well, if you know her, there is absolutely no question about that tune. It fits perfectly on her.

And so does the theme for Prince with its retro touch and its… well… kinda sparkly sounds.

And the last two tracks are not specified yet but I think they are worth showing you guys.

And here are my conceptional thoughts to the music in Zombase:

I’m working with pretty much of my own musical preferences like UK-Electro, Drum’n'Bass, Funk, Jazz, other Electronica Stuff and Trip Hop and … Stuff like that.
And I am trying to create a very unique soundscape for the game since it is playing in a fictional future-world and who knows, what creepy kinds of genres there will be… so we decided to create our own genre-titles. Read the rest of this entry »

A funky monkey? or “Hello, I’m an Ape and I’m doin’ Music.”

Behold, dear friends and readers!
(well, not really friends because you don’t know me yet, but… ah, >whoops< it)

As mentioned a few posts before (on the 29th of November) by Grey-Chi, me, “Mister Fonky Monkey, da Beat Conducta” (for short: “Ape”) is now part of the Zombase family. Hip-Hip… Hooorraayy!!

As my two beloved companions are conducting the whole process of the game, I’m in charge of the auditory department of the game. Although Grey-Chi labeled me as ‘one of the most talented musicians in town’, I’m pretty sure that there are some mad mother>whoops< out there who beat the >whoops< out of me. But my musical output ain’t that bad at all and I’m looking forward to provide you guys with some in-depth information about the progress I’m making, what kind of crazy-ass >whoops< is floating around in my wiggly head and, of course, you’ll gonna get to listen to stuff.
(for those who wonder: My doctor told me, that I was cursing too damn much, so he gave me a pill, which is causing my mouth to spit out an >whoops< for every curse-word used… don’t blame me, blame curative medicine!!)

Not long ago, the girls and I had a pretty conspirative session up in my studio-place and after some hot chocolate and pretty educating conversations about homosexuals, future-planning and other crazy >whoops<, I gave ‘em a few examples of my work and we started to categorize, what we already have.

Right now I’ma doing some research about what kind of files, bit-rates and freqzencies do I have to use to get my >whoops< rollin’ on the NDS-System without sounding like >whoops<.
As long as I’m on it, you too can experience some of my stuff right here and now.
Behold and be astonished… or at least give me some kind of credit.

(I doubt that I am able to deliver SUCH quality-songs to the actual in-game soundtrack, but be sure, it’s gonna be the >whoooops<!!)

But, to make a long story short, I hope you like and enjoy my music and my presence in the zombase-family.
Stay tuned for some more funkeh stuff!!

Peace, Love & Harmony
