Writing Music: Dancing Mad19:23
Being a music lover, I always enjoy exploring new genres of music. This week, I’ve been looking into the world of video game soundtracks. One of my friends introduced me to it as an excellent type of music to listen to while writing. I don’t play a lot of video games, so I don't normally listen to their soundtracks much, unlike movie scores, but now that I’ve start listening to them, I wish I’d tried them earlier. They make amazing songs to write to. Today’s piece is Dancing Mad, and it’s been perfect for the dramatic, scenes that I’ve been typing in my NaNo novel this week.
Dancing Mad is a very dramatic piece that alternates between softer sections of amazing organ music and louder, more frantic electronic music. It would be well suited to an explosive showdown between characters or a scene where the cast are going into battle against enormous odds. It would also suit a scene of high energy or tension. If you’re looking for a piece with a bit of drive, why not give this one a listen?
