Its called Family Tree by Dizzi Bear. I'll post the songs here as I get them loaded to YouTube, or you can listen on Spotify/Pandoa.

Here are the first 2, Forgot About Clay, and Big Sister.

Sounds pretty cool, for some reason it almost reminds me of Runescape.

If I write music it's usually just mouse clicks on a keyboard, I can't play real instruments in real time. If I could do that I bet it would sound more natural like yours.

Thanks Yellow.

I think I remember you posting a link to your sound cloud and I thought it was pretty good. (At least I think it was you)
I bet you need to find yourself a radiohead-ish singer for that music, or not, idk.

Yeah what I want to do next is figure out how to use all these popular fancy polished effects and beats so I can make my sound hit like something like this (bet I could actually make something popular)

Don't know if I could ever sing or rap, but I think want to make something that makes the listener feel cool.

Like this, it doesn't sound bad, it's just a video game soundtrack, which is what I made it for, but it's not something you would add to your playlist.

@hungrymike can you do lyrics?

I'm going to see if I can remix my "little guys" track.

I've never really done lyrics, but i am really not a good singer.

Little guys sounds cool. The intro was reminiscent of Lincoln Park. Definatley good for a game!
This one is called Rising Son

Sounds kinda MIDI-ish, no offense.

I'm not an expert with this stuff by any means but I think the mixing is maybe a bit flat, that could be part of it. Also lots of staccato (I think that's the term I'm looking for) piano and guitar sections that sound kinda unfocused IMO. Were some of these instruments done with a program or are they all live instruments? Like some of them sound like programmed to me, I don't know how to explain it but they just do.

Mad props for putting it together though, doing music is one of the coolest hobbies you can have for sure

Thanks for taking a listen and for the feedback. Mixing is definitely not my strong suit.

The piano/organ/strings and trumpet sounds all came from the keyboard, but were all played live and not programmed. Guitar, bass and drums are all live instruments.

Yeah music is definitely a fun hobby.

Do you play at all?
I play guitar, dabbled in bass and have a shitty keyboard that I hardly know how to play.
This one is called Baby Pictures.
