▪ My Musical Compositions
A part-time hobby which I picked up again after many years, aside from railway simulation
and openBVE development, is composing tracker music. I found a good use for a couple
of these tracks in my openBVE/Cross City-South/Watford Junction to Rugby preview
videos which have been popular on YouTube. Well, the visuals and train sounds were
The software I use is MadTracker 2, and you can download some higher quality Ogg Vorbis
versions of the soundtracks featured in my YouTube videos below.
- Track 1 - Hypnotica [10.5 MiB - 48 KHz, 256kbps, duration 7:03]
Soundtrack to "Watford Junction to Rugby Preview
1 (BVE Track Viewer)", composed in 2006-2007. This was my first attempt with
MadTracker, and the first piece I'd composed in over a decade. It was originally
inspired by the mystery and wonder of nature, the cosmos, and the mind, but the beat
also conveyed a feeling of perseverance, which made it ideal for the aforementioned
video preview, as so much work had gone into the route. Feedback regarding this track
has been favourable for the most part, and I'm particularly happy with the second half.
- Track 2 - The Journey [14.5 MiB - 48 KHz, 256kbps, duration 8:57]
Soundtrack to "openBVE - Watford Junction to
Rugby Preview 2", composed in 2008. This piece was originally intended
solely as an intro theme for a commercial product, but my delight with Watford Junction
to Rugby running so well in openBVE after my frustration with BVE 4, meant that
I took the piece and heavily rewrote and expanded it for the aforementioned video
preview. People either seem to love or hate this track, and personally I'm happier
with second half (is there a pattern emerging here?).
- Track 3 - ?
