Burning Building (Bonus, Unused)

about

This was the first pass at the Map 5 (Mt. Chaos) music. In chiptune concept fashion, it sounded right. It was fast-paced, fit the vibe of an alien, volcanic level, and had the necessary melodic pieces. But, when it came time to plug things in... it was a bit much. Too busy. Too chaotic. And this was going to be a LONG level, so we had to be sure that the music wasn't going to get, well, grating on the senses.

I tried for a while to make this tune work - variations on the bass line, production angles, sample adjustments, etc. - but ultimately it had to be built from the ground up. I've still included both the orchestrated and chiptune concept pieces here for sake of comparison, but in the end, this track just had too much going on to work as a background piece during the last level. Well, lesson learned.
