McCreary is a great enthusiast and keeps a very informative and up to date blog - no need to guess most of the stuff discussed here: just go and read it in his own words, here - http://www.bearmccreary.com/index.htm

Good link:yes:
 
He seems to really enjoy doing BSG scoring - it helps that they give a relatively free reign as well.

Edit - you can follow the record company link there & hear some samples of the BSG cuts.

I think he uses a lot of Japanese taiko drums in percussion, but that's all I can really add. Really impressed with your work so far Max, good stuff :yes:


lol ! Of course i know he uses Taiko Drums... i used it in my songs =)

Ok Zaarin, maybe i'll try another ambient sound if you want :P Anyway, there's music composed by someone for the mod ? I thought that you had some musicians in the BtRL team :)

I'll soon get some new soundbanks, i'll work on the songs in their actual version with the instruments i got for now, i'll make some changes after :)

And ho, i think about something... is there any cutscenes in the mod ? 'coz, if you got a video of a cutscene i can eventually make a "scenarised song" :)

No cutscenes as yet. Might have some in the full version though. Especially if we can attract some animators rather than having to get Cannonfodder to take time off from something else he'd rather be doing.

Max, I've been looking through Bear's online blog, where he has actually been discussing his themes and such, and here are some instruments he labels by name:

-Duduk (Heard in 'Two Funerals' from S1 soundtrack)
-Brazilian berimbau (percussive, I think, used in the 'Scar' piece on the S2 soundtrack)
-Balinese Gamelan (heard in 'Prologue' at beginning of each episode, S1 soundtrack)
-Irish Whistle (Heard in 'A Good lighter' from S1 soundtrack)
-he also mentions 'ethnic woodwinds' when discussing Boomer's theme

http://www.bearmccreary.com under 'blog' if you'd like to read for yourself; I'd recommend it if you really want to get a sound closer to Bear's compositions.

Yeah, I kinda posted that link on this very page already.:nod: He's very enthusiastic about his BSG work, it's great reading about this process while the show is still running.

That's really cool that he's that approachable...:yes: A true BSG enthusiast indeed.
 
A lot of artists would hold on to that kind of stuff like it was some sort of "state secret".
 
That latest sample shows great promise - I like the opening string section theme in particular. Makes the ol' neck hairs stand up!:nervous:
