Hi All!

 

About 5 months ago, I decided to compose Medieval music for video games.  You can check out a video of one of the first pieces I composed in this blog post.  

 

I was composing several pieces, one after the other, and then I had an idea: wouldn't it be great if you could just generate a soundtrack by randomly putting together different audio samples? 

 

And so I delved into finding a way to do just that!

 

You can see a demo of the result in the demo video I've made here:

Another challenge was to compose "Authentic" Medieval music.  I noticed that many so called "medieval music" soundtracks either used instruments that did not exist in the period like violin sections from an orchestra or a full french horn section, or used harmonies and chords that weren't "discovered" at that time. 

 

And besides doing a lot of research on medieval music, I invested in either virtual or live instruments that were used in that period.  I boughta few basic hand drums, an army of recorders, a new virtual instrument which included a Hurdy Gurdy and reed instruments of that time, and also a classical guitar to emulate a lute (an actual lute would have just been way too expensive).

 

Learning the recorder was an fun experience.  I ended up recording only one piece with live recorders because I just didn't make enough progress to make it sound professional. I did play the recorder in school when I was 12, but at the time, I only blew hard in the recorder to annoy my music teacher... Wish she could see me now! :-P

 

In the full audio pack, I have also included Ambient loops for various settings (forest, castle courtyard, battle...) and a bunch of sound FX.  You can check out the in-game demo I've made to showcase some of the sounds available in the pack here:
