I want something like X

Recommended Posts

I feel its a double-edged sword. I feel happy that they KNOW what they want (some people don't), but at the same time, I feel like what they'll be happy with may end up being very similar to something that's already been done. But like Nathan said, you kind of have to bring your own thing to it too.

You can also ask the musician that you're hiring what sort of briefing information he prefers.

 

Sharing reference music may help when you lack the words to describe what you're after.

Even if you do have the words, reference music may also give the musician hints of pacing, instrumentation and general mood. This is related to Music Semiology.

I agree with Nate on this and in addition I ask them about the story of the game (which many games don't have until the end though). Or ask them if they have a background for specific characters if they need their own themes or an overall main theme.
