Task at hand: Composing overworld music for a children's game about Nils Holgersson travelling around China. The game was developed during a summer course. In the game we were supposed to combine elements from Swedish and Chinese culture. My composing time was limited, as I also served as project organizer, game writer and sound designer for the game.
Solution: I did some research, trying to find a traditional Chinese melody that is wellknown in China, and found "Mo Li Hua" (se link below). I used virtual instruments sampled from traditional Chinese instruments, combined with Western percussion, choir sounds and a synth pad.
Learnings: Research pays off. And it's good to have a travel size MIDI controller!
