Music associations

So I got the aud-music-file-extractor.
I extracted the music for every S&M episode.
I got to editing the whole bunch into a nice game score-overview.
I am listening to some of the early results.
And guess what?

I find that a lot of the jazzy music somewhat reminds me of the jazzy music of the Twin Peaks series. Which is a good thing.

So, am I the only one with this association?:confused:
And/or... what other music does the S&M score remind you forumfolks of?

  • I really like the Twin Peaks soap-noir jazz. It's so perfect for the weirdness in that series. So it goes without saying, that this dark jazzy style goes perfectly with Sam & Max. Although, of course, the style is a bit more comical.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed it.

    Man, how I love Jared's music for the game!:D

  • I think Bozeke is a fan as well :)

  • film noir.. old school jazz

  • I've done exactly the same as you.

    Although, I need to open up Audacity some time to 'make good' some of the endings.


    (Most of my music play list is video game music or remixes of video game music.)

    Ah, and what era of gamingmusic do you like most?
    I have a nostalgic love for the music of the good old C64 games. I used to tape those SID-tunes on a cassette.
    Nowadays there is the SID-player and The High Voltage SID Collection to satisfy my retro needs.:cool:

    And then there is the wonderful sound of MIDI. MIDI is forever linked in my memories with those classic adventure games of the late 80s and early 90s.

    I guess you're familiar with the Galbadia Hotel Website? http://gh.ffshrine.org/
    If not it's definitely worth checking out.

    I do think it's incredibly cool that gamedevelopers use entire orchestras nowadays. It makes for hefty gameplay as in Secret Weapons over Normandy, or Call of Duty.

    Some of it has reminded me of the music from Grim Fandango, which I think is a tremendous compliment.
