My First Racing Music

Postby Heuchi1 » 08 Apr 2021, 21:19

Hi,

I'm new to this forum.
I really like SuperTuxKart, especially online – although, I never make it into the top ranks. ;)
But it's just so much fun!

So STK inspired me to write my first ever game music and I would like to share it here.
I've put a demo video on youtube where I used it with the Beam Runner add-on track:
I kind of had this track in mind while composing, but I think it could also go with other tracks, that focus on "racing".

You can download it here and try it in the game yourself if you like.

I'm very much looking forward to your comments.

Sounds pretty good, better than the original Beam Runner music imo :-)

I like it, it could definitely go with other tracks with that energetic and bright race feeling. The drum pattern and constantly changing instruments give it a chaotic feel which I actually really enjoy! Is it just me, or is this in 5/4 time?

If you want it included in tracks, it would be good to know the licence you wish to release the music under. Here is a page with licenses allowed in SuperTuxKart content along with explanations why and links for more information about each license. For example, I often license my contributions as CC-BY 4.0 ("Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International"), which means other people can legally use them as long as they give credit to the name I give, or small contributions I often license under CC0 ("Creative Commons Zero") which is basically public domain (anyone can use it for anything).
In fact, most of the Beam Runner track was allowed to be used because it was made by someone else for their own project and released under CC-BY, allowing us to create an add-on out of it.

Thank you very much for the nice comments. I'm happy you like it.

@tempAnon093: You're right, it's basically 5/4.

About the license:
I released it under "CC BY-SA 4.0". I've put a license.txt in the ZIP containing the .ogg and .music files saying:
{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
Upstream-Name: My First Racing Music by Heuchi1
Files:
 Heuchi1_FirstSTKMusic.ogg
 Heuchi1_FirstSTKMusic-fast.ogg
 Heuchi1_FirstSTKMusic.music
Copyright: Copyright 2021 Jörn Eichler
License: CC BY-SA 4.0

Would that be ok?

It would be great if it was included in tracks, of course! :)

Perfect! I didn't see it before, my mistake.

No problem. :)

I was wondering:
Is there is a place where STK contributions are collected? So, if anybody was looking for music sometime, it would appear and they could see if they like it.
