Have not worked on the movie at all in a while because school has really been getting to me (senior year). So I am going to get motivated and start working on it again. I decided NOT to do the whole scene-by-scene thing because I found out that the editing program I use really screws up the sound completely. So I will just do it the traditional Alice way.

Well, I have been writing original music for War Zone 2 and it is coming out very well. One song in particular is downright awesome. I don't mean to brag, but it is one of the best tunes i have ever made (I hope I am not sub-consciously remembering another song!!! That would be bad.) If you want me to, I could post the version that I played on the piano and recorded on my phone so that you can hear it. I can't actually play the piano, I play by ear. I am running into a problem though; at this point, recording the music on my cell phone is the only way to transfer the music from the piano to the alice movie and the sound quality is obviously low. The music I might post here was made when I was down visiting my dad in Tampa. He has a key board there, but here in Alabama, we don't have one, but we do have a piano. What do you think I should do? Should I get a keyboard here in Alabama? Do you think it is worth it? The problem is that the song sounds SO MUCH BETTER when you use the violin type sound on the keyboard than if you just use a piano. Any thoughts? And do you want to hear the music I have made so far? I have just typed it out on the piano, it isn't finished yet, this is just the core music and what you can expect it to sound like.

Take a look at the Scratch site. The Scratch software has quite a lot of musical composition capability. Maybe you can use that capability to produce sound files of your compositions. Note, however, that I know nothing about music so I may be way off base on this. In any event, Scratch is free, so it's worth taking a look at.

Alright, i figured it out, I just put the songs into an alice file. Remember, the music is subject to change and was all written by me (unless I subconsciously copied someone else. But I really really really hope not) Enjoy and tell me what you think.

Oh and just to let you guys know, there are 3 songs in the video above. These are songs that I wrote for War Zone 2. The first one is quiet, then the second and third are loud, so roll down your speakers. Don't worry though, i warn you ahead of time in the video. Please tell me if you like the music. Especially tell me what you think of the last one. All the music was written and played by me regardless of the fact that I don't actually play the piano... you can probably tell though, the music isn't exactly Beethoven-worthy. I actually have a lot more songs that I have come up with but they are on my phone and you will never hear the current versions ever...... i am humming them into the phone (Hey, if you have a song in your head, you have to remember it somehow) Tell me what you think.

When you load it, it gives an error message for some reason. Just press cancel and it will still work fine. I hope you like. Please leave comments!

It says i have not commented, i have to say, you should of made it already, the first one was soooo goood!

Lol, I wanted to make something more original than War zone 2. Though Infiltration 2 is a sequel, I don't think of it like that as much as War Zone 2 would be. Infiltration 2 will be a lot better than the first one.
