Original music, looking for opinions. Could it fit in some way into video games?

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon! I have recently joined this community. I want to learn many new things on the  videogame soundtracks area . Besides being aware of the projects of others (music, videogames, scripting...), because I find something very interesting.

Today I would like to share with you two themes that I have recently composed. I would like to try soon  to do some tracks  dedicated to being a hypothetical soundtrack, but I still need to improve a lot, and take advice from people who know about this, and who doesn't but wants to give a constructive advice :]

Thank you very much. You will probably see me through other posts here in GameDev. I see that the people here are great and the community very rich in culture, ideas and good atmosphere.

I think your music is good. The only advice I would give you is that a composer for games needs to think about the context in which the music is used. Your first track especially has a real sense of progression and dynamics - and while this is essential for a memorable piece of music, it can be jarring if playing in the background of an exploration game. You may want to complement work like the above with work that is designed for specific types of gameplay - exploration, combat, etc - or for different settings of game (sci-fi, fantasy, modern)

You're right. I think that as a challenge and a practice, I will try to propose, for example, before starting to compose, to say to myself: "This is a scene of X thing". And then try to compose something for that scene.

Thank you very much for your comment and help!

      My name is Dmitry Motorin and I've been a hobbyist musician and music writer for about 5 years. For now I haven't been too active looking for projects that need sounds or music.
      I wrote music and sounds for many games. I write in different styles, such as - ambient, casual, blues, battle, epic, kid, jazz, electric, rock, country, orchestral and others. There is some of my works - Djinotan music
      And there is a video to whom i made a sound - 
      1.  Intro for A.S.H. indie game
      2.  Gameplay A.S.H game

      Hello there,
      I am Pierrick Querolle, I am a french professional sound designer and music composer and I’m looking for collaborations on projects.
      I essentially worked for short films, animations and some music productions. With the passion for the immersive and technical power of video games and a collaboration with a video game localization company, I would like to dedicate myself to the audio and musical conception of your future projects.
      ► [AAA] Video Game Demo Reel - French Assistant Dubbing Editor : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7k1nSB0Xfw
      ► « And Then… » Demo - Unreal Engine 4 Project : https://youtu.be/4Oq88jB9wsY?t=4m25s
      About my favorite worlds, I really like Sci-Fi and Horror genres, all types of gameplays combined (Shooter, Platform…)
      Musically open-minded, I am able to compose as well ambient themes as Epic Hybrid Orchestra themes. The combination of orchestral and electronic textures is one of my assets.
      ► An example with « Neopolis », one of my compositions : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTnMybTLchI
      My areas of expertise :
      • Interactive Music Composition
      • Studio & Field Recording
      • Sound Design
      • Audio Editing & Mixing
      • Audio Implementation
      The guarantees of our future collaboration :
      • A passionate professional composer and audio engineer
      • Operational and complete workflow for any kind of commercial project
      • Creation and treatment of audio files with professional tools, used by AAA studios
      • Proficiency with Unity 2017 & Unreal Engine 4 [+ Wwise & FMod]
      • Available, cooperative and self-motivated
      Because there is some work to do and sometimes the audio gears are an investment, I can’t work for free (only paid or royalty contract accepted).
      You can find more content on my website, on my portfolio : https://pierrickinfrasound.wixsite.com/infra-sound
      If you would like to contact me, please send me an email at pierrick.infrasound@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration !

      Hello everyone!

      I'm one of the creators of the Colossal Game Music Collection and, as we now approach the end of the first year in which the collection has been released, we are currently planning our first major update to it...  As such, we thought it would be cool to ask you guys first about what sort of music content indie devs are most looking for and what they think it's currently missing on the asset markets. We would truly appreciate your opinions on this, as it would be crucial to improve the quality and usability of our collection. Here it goes:

      - Our first question is in regards to the type of music currently available to indie devs (for example "Action", "Horror", "Fantasy"...) and not just in regards to the game genre, but also to the type of instrumentation / production (for example "Electronic", "Orchestral", "Ambient"...). What type of game music asset types are you most in need these days and feel like they're lacking on the marketplaces?

      - The second question is in regards to how the music itself is presented in the asset packs. For instance, we have been making 5 original tracks per pack available on the collection, available as both full tracks and seamless loops (sometimes with also smaller / longer versions available, as well as multiple small loops). Do you think this is the best approach? Or would you prefer the music to be presented in any other way?

      Any other information you can give is also very much welcomed.
