To showcase music by Jim Paterson, this demo reel has selected tracks mostly composed for mobile games:
These and other Game tracks can be downloaded in MP3 format below. If you are interested in using music like this for commercial purposes, I can be contacted at email@example.com.
This music was composed for a game launched to tie in with the Coen Brothers' remake of the film "True Grit". Like the new film, the game is darker in tone, going back to the original book for its inspiration. The game has a number of levels set in different environments, and some "mini games", all with different background music.
Here is a selection of orchestral pieces and some for smaller groups of instruments. Some of these were originally created for games but subsequently arranged for orchestra.
Dungeon of Magic - a light Harry Potter style track
