In Topic: Startup Music Production - Getting Customers?

15 May 2012 - 02:14 PM

Thank you for the feedback Brian, it is really very much appreciated!

Kenji's questions, "

if you compose something and the client is not satisfied do you make another song of the same lenght for him? " i

s kind of an awkward one, and I don't think quite the correct way to think about it. I mean, short answer yes I couldn't leave a customer dissatisfied and just say, "tough"...

But what Brian was saying about polishing, say, 16 bars of a piece, then running it by the client, to make sure my vision is congruent with theirs, that seems like a better process.

What do you think?

Thanks,

I find I have less and less time to devote to gaming (with wife, kids, other activities, other amazing titles, etc.). So the face that Blizzard has been going down the less customizable, more homogenized path to appeal to casual gamers, it doesn't bother me. I'd much rather jump into a game and be having fun in 10 minutes, than taking 2-3 hours to perfectly set up my UI, figure out controls, etc.

I used StartLogic, they are pretty much like GoDaddy I think, but I've heard a lot of bad about the latter.

They have a WordPress plug-in and they are great for people that are complete novices at all things web (like myself).

I like the music overall, I picture myself in a zombie FPS, and I creep through a ruined office building and there is a radio laying on the ground as I move by, Forlorn Possibilities is playing, or something...

The instrumentation is a little "vanilla" feeling for me. I don't know if that is the overall quality of the strings and piano, or what. It feels like music from a game you loaded up on your Windows 95 machine and booted off a CD-ROM.

I agree about the mastering. Even something like Sound Forge or Wavelab (or whatever your wave editor is) can serve as a mastering tool to eq, compress, and normalize.

I listened to a little bit of, I think, four pieces. They all are the same genre/sound. My only criticism would be that. If you want to get into music production, you may want to branch out and show off many varied styles.
