Crafty Villain by Adam Haynes
This is a theme/leitmotif that I composed for a villain in an imaginary video game. I imagined that the villain is not necessarily the “main” villain, but he/she is someone you meet early on in the game, someone who tries to trick you into their little ploy, and failing. I imagine this villain has two dopey sidekicks too, and that you take them out in the first third of the game. This villain is merely a pest, but may have a connection with his superior, the ‘main’ villain, and therefore his death will have implications on the protagonist’s journey.
I set myself a challenge with this piece; to compose it within one day. I started from scratch at 8am and had it finished by 7pm. I was very pleased with myself as writing in short spaces of time is not my strong-point, and it was good practise for me. I shall be doing this again!
I perhaps went overboard with the saxophone in the second half and I strayed away from the theme melody. I feel that I could have kept it a lot simpler. Perhaps I’ll redo this piece with some adjustments.
I’d like to attempt to write another villain piece, but something grander and more epic to suit the ‘main’ villain of a game, so something like Kefka’s theme in Final Fantasy VI.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this one! :)
