Writing Music: Peril18:58
I don’t play many video games, but I do love to listen to the music from the gameplay. It’s almost as good as movie soundtracks to write to, atmospheric, and filled with feelings that make it perfect for writing to. This week, I discovered an instrumental piece called Peril, from the game Halo 2. It’s only short, but it would make a great piece to write to.
To me, this piece feels like someone is sneaking around in the daylight, someone who is capable of handling themselves but needs to remain undetected. There’s an underlying feeling of tension to this piece, like the character is always looking over their shoulder, but there’s no immediate threat to their safety. It might also suit a scene of traveling through some strange land, where the characters are interested and maybe amazed, but not comfortable.
What have you been listening to this week? I love to discover new music. Suggest me some!
