Zombie Music (WIP)

November 7th, 2013 + 9:11 PM  ·  UndercoverApple

I've been working on some music for a iOS game!  It's untitled as of right now but it's about killing zombies hahha.  What I'm sharing with everyone are the 4 tracks I've been working on so far for the game.  In order, they are:

Track 1 - The Calm Before the Storm (In between phases of the game).
Track 2 - The Fortress (Building phases)
Track 3 - The Flesh Eaters (Attack phases)
Track 4 - The Aftermath (Results and score)

I haven't gone in and tweaked all the levels and some ideas are more hollow than others as of right now.  I just wanted to share something since I've been silent for quiet some time   Hope everyone is well!

Displaced (WIP)

June 17th, 2013 + 10:06 PM  ·  UndercoverApple

Simultaneously working on 4 tracks right now X_X

Wanted to share a work-in-progress called Displaced.  It's honestly a song about myself and what I've been going through these past 6 months.  Sometimes I feel like there's a lot I want to say but the guilt of just being a burden keeps me quiet.  Sometimes I feel like I just want to apologize to everyone for having to put up with me right now.  It's not all sad though, there's a balance to it because honestly my family and friends have been extremely supportive   It's just a thought that weighs on my mind.  The idea of being displaced has a comfort to it and you'll kind of hear that in the music.  Here's the lyrics:

________________________________

The words fell out from our mouths
Like they had so much weight
Each syllable was so heavy
All their meanings filled up the empty space

The time has come
For me to say sorry
For what I've become

An empty room
An empty face
A hollow boy
At home when he's displaced

Our conversation in a pause
There's something wrong with the reels
As the film spins uncontrollably
Each scene led up to how I feel

The time has come
For me to say sorry
For what I've become

An empty room
An empty face
A hollow boy
At home when he's displaced

__________________________

I'm testing out a lot of things in this mix as far as EQing and panning that I haven't done before so hopefully it sounds okay.  It's definitely rough around the edges and I'm still trying to figure out some things

Wishing Well (Rough Draft)

May 14th, 2013 + 3:05 PM  ·  UndercoverApple




Some new Undercover Apple work I've been writing for the past 2 months

Wishing Well

It's a swing and a miss
A frog of a kiss
There's a giant hole in my map

There's a finish line
That I'm always behind
Despite the fact I'm running fast

An illegible list
Of ingredients
That I can't quite collect

I'm a shooting star
To disregard
Whose light-bulb lost its filament

But you threw your coin
Into my wishing well
I Saw a shimmer from across the sea

So you threw your coin
And as it fell
It floated there inside of me
And that's when I believed

That the cracks in the mirror
Are nothing to fear
And I might feel quite unaligned

But the pieces still reflect
The person known as myself
In the end I'll be fine

Greetings from the hospital!

March 4th, 2013 + 11:03 PM  ·  UndercoverApple

I was admitted back into the hospital this morning at 8AM Luckily I have WiFi and my brother is buying me a small midi keyboard tomorrow!  I'll try to grind out a few compositions to pass the time if I'm well enough

Bargain (Update v2)

March 1st, 2013 + 12:03 PM  ·  UndercoverApple

Hello AMPers!

You might have heard an earlier version of this posted in October.  Though not much has been added (the bridge is new, but no vocals recorded yet), I spent a lot of time learning more about EQing and compression so I think things sound much cleaner this time around in this WIP.

ULI mentioned giving more insight on how the song/music/lyrics so here's what I was thinking when I wrote this one:

I had a friend who was pretty depressed.  She kept on insisting that she wasn't really worth much to anyone.  She tries to find good friends but they just think her sorrow and sadness is "made up" and that she's just "pathetic" for feeling the way she does.  Depression is be a nasty thing, especially if people don't truly understand what you're going through.  It inspired me to write this song from her perspective.

[Lyrics]

[verse]
I know I'm not worth the world
So you threw away the ransom letters
I know I'm not a bargain
Obviously you could do better

I'm not a fluffy cloud
All I do is rain
I tried to be the sun
But my light gets in your way

[chorus]
Because I'm reaching out to you
I'm trying to get your attention
Relying on all the things I felt

... But I'm numb
Hope you're doing well
... But I'm numb
Probably couldn't tell

There's a GPS on your desk
I'm the blinking dot, it's my location
But I'm not your point of interest
Changing all your destinations

I know it's kind of rude
So I'm not gonna ask
If you're gonna pay me back
For all the love that's in your past

Because I'm reaching out to you
I'm trying to get your attention
Relying on all the things I felt

... But I'm numb
Hope you're doing well
... But I'm numb
I'm so numb...

[bridge]
I'm so numb
No sense of sensory
Frozen cold anatomy
Somehow hoping you would thaw me out

I'm so numb
Just what got into me
Drew a blank upon epiphany
How could you pencil me into your doubts

Because I'm reaching out to you
I'm trying to get your attention
Relying on all the things I felt

... But I'm numb
Hope you're doing well
... But I'm numb
I'm so numb...

[end]

Emie should be recording the bridge very soon and I'll share another update once it's in its final stages Cheers!
