Hi i'm Leonardo,

an independent music composer and i'd love to contribute in this fantastic project.

I am thinking to create an original musical score for the Pioneer game.

This is my first attempt at defining some of the first themes:

That's a nice track.

I believe that s20dan is coordinating the music. You can help him by re-encoding it from your sources as an Ogg Vorbis file.

Hi Leonardo, thats a very good track 🙂

We would very much like to include it.

As Brianetta mentioned, all tracks are in .ogg format and we encode them at 96kbps. I've found thats about as low as you can go before noticable compression artifacts are heard and it keeps the file sizes nice and low. But none of that is set in stone, its just the current standard.

Sounds good, could be a main menu song.

For the game and the exploration scenes i'd like to hear some slower and relaxed tunes, you can take some inspirations from the mass effect soundtrack, those are very simple but unique tracks that blends perfectly into a sci-fi game experience.

Keep up the good work!

My objective, is to partecipate actively in the project, composing a complete score, that anyone can enjoy while playing the game.

I will try to make the sound more appropriate, trying to get the right atmosphere it needs...

Thanks! 🙂

Here the music in ogg format:

Hi Leonardo,

Another composer reporting in. I really like the water track. Looking forward to hearing more.

I like these. I think that Skies would be really good for the opening menu scene, with the spinning spacecraft. Dwarf Planet under water is very mellow, perhaps ideal for dealing with characters and bulletin boards in a space port.

Any thoughts for a strong theme? Something that could be recognised out of context. "Ah, that's the music from Pioneer!"

Not really; that's so very derivative that any Frontier player would recognise it.

I was wondering whether Fremde might have had anything in the pipeline; I really like the style.

I really like the new track (dwarf planet), that is more suitable for an exploration type of gameplay.

Good job!

We need a theme for game and more tracks for make it unique...

I have some ideas on this, but i will have need for much time;

I'm trying to compose other ambient music slow and caratteristic, i have some in work in progress, but as first action music, need to adapt on precedent style, so will see...

cheers! 😀

Is there a particular style of music for Pioneer? I'm kind of interested in contributing, but I do a lot of weird, proggy '70s-throwback stuff - not sure how well it would fit. (The best examples I have on hand right now are the first, last, and middle tracks from this album.)

Hi sorry about the tardy reply 😉 There is I suppose a style of ambient and classical, but to be honest I don't mind what we use as long as it sounds right 🙂

I'm listening to your track 4-Apartment3-GSynthOriginal.mp3 it really reminds me of an old computer game 🙂 I could actually see something like that for some very specific situational music, but we don't have much code in that regard yet.

There's certainly a place for different styles, after-all FFE had some varying styles of music all of which I quite liked 🙂

@ Fremde, I've finally gotten round to creating a branch with all the recent musical contributions, I have included yours 🙂 I really like the tracks!

Hmm, fun. I might take a stab at doing some tracks for this, then - be a nice breather from my current music project.

I don't have anything pertinent to say about the music, except to say that I'm really enjoying all the music I've heard thus far. All of your stuff is good. Thanks, and please keep contributing! 😀

This last track is very good, but i have some thoughts on it.

First, the track has some action packed sections. I think you should concentrate more on doing homogeneous tracks, (space, planet, combat, station).

The sounds are good, i like the synts and the beats, but i don't like the orchestral percussions very much, i think they are kinda out of place in a sci-fi game.

One last thing... the choir section at 02:22 is awesome, you should create a longer track with a similar athmosphere 😀

Here a new track for game, hope can you like it; This is born as a idea for spaceport and for the take off of ship. For a correct use of it i can cut some parts of track and introduce it in game as single track with loop.

Take a look for pictures of Vlastan that have inspired me... 😀

It is a nice track to listen to. I can imagine exploring deep space with that in the background.
