Welcome to the Music and Sound forum on GD.net. Pull up a chair, listen to some tracks by your peers and discuss all things music and sound. We're happy to have you. Please check out the FAQ link for some basic (and mostly common sense) approaches used in this forum. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
My name is Matt Collins, I recently joined this site.
Just wanted to give a tad bit of an introduction, I've always been into music. Loved it since I was little, and recently this summer I took it to a more serious step when I bought some oh-so legendary EWQL libraries =P
With that software I started writing actual orchestral pieces, and I looked into writing for games.
With some luck I got on board with about 5 projects. 2 of those projects would later get cancelled, but the other 3 I stayed with to write the soundtrack to their games. The biggest one being a deep space strategy game known as Sidius Nova coming out for iOS this fall =)
So, those projects were the things I tackled during the summer, and just recently I got on board for writing for a short film as well.
I always loved writing music, and for years I just wrote as a hobby, it was great. It would be a dream to actually write the soundtrack to a game. This summer provided that dream to be fulfilled and more then once.
I fully intend to keep on pursuing this dream of mine and hopefully it will get me somewhere in the future. I really look forward to keeping up with this site and hopefully get to know some of you guys.
