Music
I (Rating Orb A β Pseudolonewolf) compose music as a hobby, and for my games (though not all music I make is for games!), in the midi format, and most of it - years of work - is here to listen to for free.
There are advantages and disadvantages to the midi file format. It's great because the filesize is tiny; just a few kilobytes per file, meaning no long downloads. However, they may not play correctly for you, as their sound is determined by your own computer's midi player (since a midi is nothing but numerical data, telling different instrument sounds to play for different durations and at different pitches; the player provides the instrument sounds). They also cannot be put on mp3 players or anything like that in their raw format.
To hear the true sound of some of my game music, you can buy the Official Soundtracks using the links below.

Light of the Dark Moon Composed: 11 years ago Duration: 10:05   4022 views 17 Comments
This is a strange piece, because I really like so many parts of it, yet at the same time it feels flat and not attention-grabbing at all... Hmm.
It's divided into three parts: Light of the Dark Moon, Seeking the Dark Moon, and Exploring the Dark Moon. Though I don't know if it's clear where one part ends and another begins, but it doesn't really matter.
It gives me strong mental imagery and memories... but they're personal things that are too dull to explain!

Hectic Composed: 10 years ago Duration: 1:00   1591 views 1 Comments
A strange, simple piece composed very quickly... I can't remember much about when or why I composed it.

Waltz II - Cosmos Waltz Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 3:52   1337 views 2 Comments
This one is supposed to sound somewhat spacey, but it doesn't exactly give a feel of the VASTNESS of space... More like, uh... riding a little futuristic hover scooter through your daily routine with stars in the background, seen through the bubble of your habitation or something. o_O

Waltz I - Waltz of Bones Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 3:17   1333 views 4 Comments
This one, I think, was inspired by listening to some of Danny Elfman's music in either the Corpse Bride or Nightmare Before Christmas... He has such an effective style for creating elegantly haunting, sort of spooky melodies... I wish I was half as skilled!
So this is a waltz - of sorts - meant to make you think of, uh, bones. I bet it doesn't.
(Or rather, I start with an intention, then ramble off into irrelevance...)

Shadow Dance Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 4:39   1384 views 1 Comments
Originally called something bland like 'Waltz' or something, I decided to actually give this one a TITLE since titles seem to increase the appeal of musical pieces... Hmm.

Sequence in Sapphire Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 3:28   1291 views 4 Comments
I intended this to 'seem like the colour blue'...? o_O
I'm sure any synaesthete would tell me I was way off though.

Sequence in D Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 4:24   1241 views 1 Comments
I've received compliments about this one specifically before, and I think it's rather interesting myself... Unpleasant to me in its technicalities, but interesting to listen to, yes...

Sequence in C Composed: 11 years ago Duration: 2:26   1199 views 1 Comments
One of several 'sequence' pieces, whatever one of THOSE is. I find it mildly appealing, but it's nothing special.

Quest 1 Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 18:32   3116 views 22 Comments
This was an interesting experiment!
It's a very long piece, because I wanted to try to tell a full story using a piece of music... I know it's not exactly an original idea, but at the time, I thought it was rather interesting.
You might recognise the World's Saviours' Theme at the beginning; I got their Theme from this.
The start bit is meant to represent a generic Hero, posing valiantly.
He then gets on his horse and rides hastily across the glens or something. (Section 1)
He arrives in a quiet forest, somewhat magical... (Section 2)
He finds an ancient ruin in the forest... (Section 3)
As he walks through it, he starts to feel as if something's tracking him... Shadows dart about, he feels wary ("Bet-ter watch my step..."). His heart seems to beat faster and faster and he speeds up, as the shadows seem to get larger and faster, so he starts to run, and- gasp! A DRAGON!
He falls backwards at the size and majesty of the mighty beast...
But wait! The creature only wants to talk, it seems. (Section 4)
It converses with the Hero, telling him about a human sorcerer (evil, of course), nearby (DUN... DUN... DUN... DUN...!; his four-chord theme), who's been wreaking havoc on the forest or something.
It mentions his name, and it brings back unhappy memories for the Hero... Apparently the sorcerer destroyed his village, or inflicted some other emotional wound on him.
The dragon asks the Hero to help to defeat him.
The Hero accepts, and the dragon offers to take him to the sorcerer's lair...
The Hero rides on the dragon's back through the skies! (Section 5)
Through the forest at first, but then they break through the canopy and the Hero is whisked through the sky and marvels at the amazing views as he travels at high speed, high above the world...
The dragon drops the Hero off at the Dark Fortress of the evil sorcerer. (Section 6)
He explores... It's very dark and evil. Dramatic!
Eventually, the Hero reaches the top, and confronts the evil sorcerer. (Listen for his 4-chord theme!)
Arrogantly, the sorcerer summons some tiny imps to deal with the Hero. (Section 7)
He swings his sword frantically around, trying to hit the tiny, evasive creatures.
But obviously he succeeds eventually, what with the amazing power of his righteousness or whatever.
The sorcerer is annoyed. (4 bar theme!)
He does battle with the Hero personally. (Section 8)
He fights casually and confidently using his magic at first, and this lasts quite a while...
(Listen out for the Hero's Theme! Followed by the Sorcerer's!)
But when the Hero seems to be winning (his theme plays, or a variation thereof), the sorcerer transforms into a giant black monster for some reason! Gasp!
The battle gets more dramatic...
But it doesn't last as long as the last bit. The Hero quickly and valiantly slays the might beast, and as he does so, the stained glass windows behind them (there has to be some of these!) shatter, showing the sun rising, filling the once-dark place with light...
Happiness, yay!
Pleased with his victory, the the Hero heads back down through the Fortress...
And either his horse or the dragon appears from nowhere and he rides off again, along the horizon with the sun in the background, and a variation of section 1 plays! (Section 9)

Isn't that interesting?!
The sections sort of flow into eachother, so it's not easy to know where one ends and another starts unless you have my mind, or if you've listened to it a few times maybe!

Pearl Whisper Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 4:51   1243 views 3 Comments
There are parts of this (mainly the beginning) that I like a lot... It gives me a strange feeling and many memories, but, uh, nothing I'm going to talk about!
It also feels like this was another significant piece in the history of my composing, for some reason...

Omninous Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:53   1181 views 1 Comments
When I finished this, it became another 'lost piece' because I didn't consider it worth showing off (it's too short and simple), so I just saved it in some obscure folder somewhere and forgot about it...
I'm uploading it for the sake of thoroughness now.

Nocturne IX Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 4:10   1137 views 1 Comments
This one is also one of my favourites of the series, and I don't know why I didn't upload it before...
It's sort of simplistic and repetitive, but 'peculiar' in parts, which I find appealing...
It gives me an 'American feel' for some odd reason, like music by Gershwin or Copeland or other such composers, even though it bears little resemblance to their music...

Nocturne VIII Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:45   1043 views 1 Comments
Yet another insipid, sort-of-happy one that makes me think of dainty Victorian women with huge frilly skirts or something...
What went through my mind when creating these things? o_O

Nocturne VII Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:06   1106 views 1 Comments
Eugh. I'm remembering why I never uploaded these before...

Nocturne VI Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:46   1269 views 4 Comments
This one's not remotely nocturne-like, but it's one of my favourites in the series anyway.

Nocturne V Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:24   1053 views 1 Comments
Many of these sound very samey in their insipidity...
It's largely because instead of giving up when I thought an idea wasn't working, I just tried to finish it until the end before moving on to the next one.

Nocturne IV Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 2:09   1042 views 1 Comments
I actually like this one more than others in this series. I played it a few times on my piano, since it's extremely simple, AND I ENJOYED IT MUCHLY.

Nocturne III Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:24   1110 views 1 Comments
At this point, I was straying away from pieces that actually sounded apt to be nocturnes, and basically just using the 'nocturne' title for them for the sake of keeping them as a series...
I had distinct imagery of like... orange cogs or something when making this? I think?
Strange...

Nocturne II Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 1:27   1012 views 1 Comments
Another insipid one, that feels far too simple and happy for my tastes and doesn't really seem like a nocturne because of that...

Nocturne I Uploaded: 8 years ago Duration: 3:08   1009 views 0 Comments
Most of my piano music is unplayable, because it would require more hands than most people have...
So, I decided to compose a series of easy nocturnes that I COULD play.
Most of them turned out too insipid for me to even want to attempt to play them though, so the idea was a bit of a failure.
Oh well!
