Balloons is a relaxing acoustic album, inspired by the music from Nintendo's Animal Crossing series. With this in mind, I had two goals. One, I wanted to make the style fairly minimalistic, while keeping it emotional. And two, I wanted to make each track represent different times of day. So, I based each track on a general time during the day, starting with "Wake Up" for the morning. I wanted to incorporate a lot of my own style and personal taste into the composition and arrangement of each track. Although the album is not particularly themed towards Animal Crossing, the games remained my source of inspiration and I created this album to sort of give them under my own interpretation!
There is a story to this album, but I don't want to say what it is because I like hearing other peoples interpretations of a story for the music! So if you have any ideas for stories I would love to hear them.
If you would like to use this music for a non-commercial project, you may do so but you MUST credit me as "Ryan Stunkel" as a "Music Composer" and provide a link back to this album. If you would like to license this for a commercial project (one that can make any amount of money), send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and you can ask for permission/make an arrangement with me to do so.
Or in other words, you can use this on youtube, free flash games or whatever as long as you credit me and link back to this album!
The entire album was created using the following VST and AU sample libraries:
Versillian Studios - vis.versilstudios.net/hand-chimes.html
East/West Hollywood Strings
East/West Symphonic Orchestra
