We'll need some music for our title/menu screens.

Music should be contributed in 44.1KHz WAV files, named with a title_ prefix. Feel free to include your github user name, eg: title_<username>_funky-metal-track.wav. Please avoid spaces in file names.

Title tracks should be looping, and may be paired with a lobby track (as discussed, we've been talking about the idea of having the lobby track start at whatever point its corresponding title track was at when switching from main menu to lobby screens).

What style of music are we looking for?

I know there are some other people working on music / title animations, but this is my quick take on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKF3_qxcJqU

I think Patrick's "Bad Golf 2!" chant could be turned into title screen music pretty well, which is what I was trying to do here.

super duper rough the mix is horrible, i was just testing a guitar riff and wanted to see a yes or no before I keep down this path. but omg this sounds bad, because i did it on my ipad and recorded the guitar using an acoustic! :P very quickly done. yelled "BAD GOLF 2!" into my acoustic's pickup and that plus the guitar amp made it sound pretty cool. put in a "melody" but its just a simple thing. anyways. completely not representative of what I can do in pro tools! but want to know what people think, yes or no?

that "title" thing goes with the "lobby" music I made as well because it is the same chord progression and tempo for both, to have some sort of "theme" or whatever. thats why I'm looking for approval from everyone else before I continue with this, because I'd want to make all the music have some of continuity. :D

it is also only 8 bars and doesn't have much in it and changes in a weird way, simply because the intention of those 8 bars was to provide a taste of that idea.

that rock sound is very rough and probably not metal enough, but I want to know what people think, more notes or less notes, double bass? :D

Heyas

Done a quick rough title theme demo influenced by some of the music in the original trailer. Has a bit more of a hip hop edge, and samples Patrick shouting "Bad Golf 2" from the original Amnesia Fortnight launch video as well as some "Bad Golf" chants by the Double Fine crew from the finalists announcement video...

This is sweet. It feels a little bit "dense" to me, though.

Ha ha, @studiokraze. Nice ^_^

Nice work! The bass feels a little overpowering to me, but I'm keen to hear what others think.

I've popped this up in the asset sources repo for future use.

I think the bass frequencies and levels are ok but needs a little EQ to bring out some more mids/highs as it sounds a bit muddy. Also I think some of the strumming is just slightly missing the beat timing.

It's sounding really good and is well mixed but In my honest opinion, this shouldn't be the Title music. I can hear this as being on a loop as menu music instead. I personally think the title music needs to be a lot punchier and a bit heavier to get the impact that the pitch video eludes to,

I got bored earlier and thought it would be funny to record a little title screen voice over, a la resident evil. Figured I'd share to see what people think and if we maybe want to include it.
Here is one with echo:

and one with just some reverb:

Neat. Feel free to throw a pull request against the asset sources repo (44.1KHz wav files are what we're sticking in there) so that we can easily add it in if we find a place for it :)

Here's my take. It's half golf country club, half hard rock. I plan to add, "BAD! GOLF! TWOOOOO!" chants during the rock part.
