I always imagined The Dreaming as a game, and I can see the action scenes and the FMVs so clearly in my head.
Because of that I always look for ambient music/soundtracks etc that fit the type of music I think would be used.
I found this :)
Also a great example of all the different sounds a Didgeridoo can make, if you were having trouble imagining how it sounded when Old Johnson was playing one. I love the deep, deep undertones you can hear when he takes the longer didge.
Also, he’s a great example of a more rhythmic-track that mixes modern drums and synth in (definitely contains photographs of people that have passed away).
It’s funny that you should say that you imagined it as a game. I did too, only instead of a Tomb Raider based one, it was purely aboriginal themed around the time just before and as white people are coming to Australia, and features themes like with the cave paintings coming to life and stuff. It’d be an open world kind of thing where you go hunting and learn about bush tucker and educate people about those aspects of aboriginal culture without them realizing it.
I really wish I had the ability to make games, or I’d totally be up for helping you turn it into one. Unfortunately I’m just full of ideas and words and not enough practical ability.
