a computer game track 81 Preparation 1. 2. 3. 4. From the CD, copy the folder named project5 to your computer. On your computer, create a folder named mywork5 or something similar in which to save your work. From the project5 folder, open template ­ templt5. In your new mywork5 folder, save the template as myproj5 or something similar. The template has a time signature of 4/4 and the tempo is 105 bpm. Now this may be a bit fast for you. If so, scroll the tempo to suit you. When listening back, scroll back to 105 bpm. Info The assignment OK, here's the scenario. A computer game company has commissioned you to compose the music for a scene in their latest historical title set in Elizabethan times. The piece must run for a minimum of three minutes. Info Ostinato ­ a posh word for riff! It's nighttime and we see a lone sailor searching a misty quay side for a hidden treasure map. Moored sailing ships bob gently on the tide. Apart from the sailor, the scene is mostly static. We need something repetitive to underpin the structure. Let's start by recording a short ostinato. A simple line on the lower strings of an acoustic guitar will do nicely.
