Suddenly, Soundtrack

“The music you play is the soundtrack of your life”

-Dick Clark






I’ve been playing Eve for more than a year now, and especially since starting this blog, I’ve become more and more involved in the out-of-game “community” aspects of it.

That community of players is something that I’ve really come to love about this game, and I’ve been trying to think of ways to add to it. I do have this blog, which I intend to keep going full steam with, but I wanted to bring something more to the table. I really enjoy writing, including creative writing, but because I can’t really get into the role-play elements of eve, I have problems coming up with decent fan-fiction I can get behind.

So then I thought, what about music? I’m a composer and arranger in my RL work, doing mostly commercial work, arrangements for bands, and indie film scoring, and as such part of what immediately drew me into this game was Jón Hallur Haraldsson’s (CCP RealX) game-score. Its the sounds we listen to almost every day in New Eden, and it defines the world we fly around in. Jón’s compositions give Eve life; they flesh out the cold harshness of space, and give it its recognizable cyber-punk, post-electronica, space-opera mood.

The scoring is perfect, but sometimes, we just want more. So with that in mind, I’ve put together a couple of tracks in the style of Eve. I’d like to think of them as addendums to, rather than an imitations of the in-game music; further listening for your aural pleasure in the same style as the rest of the music in Eve.

The tracks can be found ->here<- , on a myspace page I set up as Aiden (don’t get me started on myspace…I wanted to start killing strangers after dealing with that setup process). So, give a listen, and I hope you enjoy.

On a totally different note, as of today, I’ve been in Suddenly Ninjas for exactly one year. So, at the risk of getting all emo on you all, I raise my glass to the finest group of miscreants and fun-loving criminals in Eve. Cheers guys.

o7,

  1. Cheers mate and congratulations. Oh and nice work with the music. Send it to CCP so they can implement it into the game?

  2. Cheers Aiden. I look forward to listening to the scores when I get home tonight.
