Isn't this a Soundtrack comp?
How does breaks fit in there?
Creepy stuff with dark beats or percussion are good for opening credits. Like in Seven or other stuff. Or anywhere things get tense in a film. Unless it was a purely orchestral score. At least some deep bassy hits or echoed percussion.
Stuff I've made would work well with or without beats. I just like beats with that dark trip hop influence.
It's different when you score while watching footage where you know beats won't work with what's on screen. But without an actual film idea I like beats in most of my creepy stuff.
I actually have an old weird track in a little short my friend made for a 48 hour horror film contest. He wanted to use it somehow he always said. If he ever gets something more pro done up, I'm in for sure music wise. Just a curiosity on the subject at hand.
I want this to be a focus of your skills, rather than a limit on a genre type. I want you guys to focus more on what your music needs to become, rather than what isn't allowed in "the rules".
If you feel your track is truly spine-chilling, I care not what elements of it are.
Ok, so if I submit a mixed Wav (No stems for mastering) not following your headroom requirments (as I am computerless and have no way of knowing) It will be considered if it's good?
I guess I could check in audacity at work before I submit the file actually.
Noticed this just now. I really need to take more time looking around for things like this.
I am as in on this as can be. I've fallen into the habit of designing some pretty chilling sounds recently (more than one occasion, I've had to step away from the work I was doing for a little while as it was making me a little uncomfortable - I hope I can recreate that effect here...).
