You’re awash in a sea of emotion, the ebb and flow pulling you simultaneously towards happiness and grief. As you finally wash ashore, you’re confronted with nothingness. You’ve lost your grip, there’s no foundation to build on, you’re perspective has been torn asunder as you struggle to identify with what you even are. Tonights theme is “Mental Breakdown.”

My entry: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/DDRKirby_ISQ__-_Insanity_Quest(OHC184).mp3

I decided to use this particular OHC to prep for Ludum Dare (which was this past weekend), so I decided to try and make a bunch of different songs, all centered around the same thematic motif (since that’s a great technique to use when making an OST).

I ended up with 4 different songs, which you hear in order.  The “title screen” music has two different sections, which each feature a different theme/motif.  Then I just try and reuse those for the other 3 songs.  Sometimes it’s a little subtle, but you should be able to hear it if you’re paying attention.

My personal favorite part is the intro of the victory music–using the “cumshot” motif that gets tossed around OHC a lot (E F G C ^ C).  I thought those 2 bars were just genius.

This was a lot of fun, and prepped me well too, so big success here.
