i hope everyone’s enjoyed this week’s themes! last, but not least, here is a theme for SLARPG’s main protagonist, Melody.
as i wrote this, i knew it needed to have a melody (ha) that was memorable. initially i tried a couple different choruses, but nothing was working—it was too forgettable, unoriginal, or just plain didn’t fit Melody. it wasn’t until i dug through some old compositions of mine that i found a song i wrote four years ago, whose chorus fit beautifully. part of me wanted to hold on to that piece for myself, but the way it came together so nicely, i couldn’t NOT use it.
it ended up being the perfect fit, as bobby explained to me the transition from a rigid, formal melody in the verses to the more relaxed, graceful chorus melody coincidentally parallels Melody’s character arc, saying: “it’s all about her trying to find her voice and figure out who she wants to be.” that’s something i relate to a lot these days, so i’m very happy that the track came together this way.
i had lots of fun making these tracks and i hope folks have had fun listening to them! there will be more to come, but that’s all for now. until then! <3
