“Betty Boop Dance Card” Released!
I’m really proud of this score and it pushed me harder than ever before. It is, by an enormous margin, the most music I’ve ever written for a game, clocking in at approximately 46 minutes of music. The score is incredibly diverse – from swing to rock to 8-bit to modern pop… it’s got a lot going on.
It’s put together by the awesome folks at Fowl Moon Studios and we’re super excited to share it with you!
I learned a lot while I was writing this game. I learned how to write a sax soli properly (from poring over Sammy Nestico’s arranging book), I learned how to use the VI chord effectively in a major-key turnaround, and I learned how to harness the YMCK 8-bit plugin for some pretty serious chiptune action. Okay fine, other skills too, but getting swing chord progressions under my pencil was game-changing.
If you’re still thinking about it, here’s the trailer 😉
