A Dark Path – Music for “The Black Blade at the Edge of the World”

| Home || Music |


Dungeons, Ruins and other dark paths await discovery and exploration. This piece of music consists of low strings, tubular bells, Piano, Harp and Pipe Organ with some minor percussive movements for added mood. Intended to convey unease and slight tension as the player explores the darker places in the game.

The Black Blade at the Edge of the World is the first chapter in a multi-chapter story being produce in RPG Maker MV, being  co-developed by Gregory B Jackson and Allen Christian. Music production began using a Yamaha DGX-660 and Audacity, but has since made the transition to sound libraries available through East West Composer Cloud, and is now being produced in Cubase 10 Pro.


As this piece was being written, I was sharing the following playlist of my progress in composing and producing it:

Background image used in videos 1-6 in the progress playlist was listed in Google Images as being authorized for reuse with modifications.

Starting with version 7, sound libraries available through East West Composer Cloud and Cubase Pro are used for production.


I am now working on the additional pieces for the Black Blade soundtrack.
