Hi, I am a new member of the forums! To introduce myself, I’m a french-canadian (so sorry in advance for any bad syntax or grammatical errors in english) who has been playing Morrowind on and off since approx 2003. But I just recently got to modding, about a year ago, and never relased an officialy finished mod to the public. I have touched many aspects of modding, mainly custumizing existing mods for my own tastes: I’ve modified and created small scripts, modified and created new textures for the Dwemer ruins and Velothi architexture and still working on a city-mod that expands Suran and adds little quests and a puchasable house. My main project right now is customizing the Morrowind Accoustic Overhaul (MAO) to include more music pieces (not my own, but maybe someday) and create more ambient tracks (from samples and originals). I work in the music area, so I have skills with the creation, production and alteration of sounds and music. I have loads of ideas, loads of time and loads of motivation for this. :-)
I have a question though: I know that there was a music score (of 7 tracks or so) included in earlier releases of Tamriel Rebuilt, but this seems to have been abandoned since. Is there a sub-project underway to include a music score and/or sound overhaul like MAO? I found what MAO did with the music part of the game to be very interesting and could be very usefull in Tamriel Rebuilt. Basicaly, they added short ambient tracks that would play randomly altered by random-lenght silences, specific for each regions and for night and day. Then after a while, the longer original music tracks would start.
I already started working on creating new ambient minimaly-musical short pieces like the ones used in MAO, with specific tones and vibes for each new regions (ex: middle-eastern vibe for desertic regions as Deeshan Plains, more oriental/asiatic sounding ambiants for Nedothril Coast, etc), but I will wait to have autorizations from the modders to use my modified version of their music script.
