      I'm a formally trained composer (doctorate from Michigan State) who writes what most people would call avant-garde concert music. I love weird abstract projects, and I would like to work with somebody making a weird, abstract, artsy game. 
      You can find more about me and my music on my site. I have worked with acoustic and electronic sounds, including some procedurally generated and interactive computer music. 
      In particular, I would like to work on a project that lets me use Fmod to prepare an adaptive score for a game built on Unity or Unreal. I've been a music professor and would like to get experience working in this medium so that I can be a better mentor for my students. Send me a DM or email <davidjohnmacdonald@gmail.com> if you would like to discuss working on a project together.

      Hello everyone,
      I am doing a survey to understand better what are the pain points in terms of music composition in video games, what are the game studios / developers expectations in the future and how the industry could be improve: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1NycMla5fhQd1fMbLy3c28alxCbhIYvkD6Fv9lqhxEJ0
      It is not a promotion of any kind, I am just interested in getting feedbacks from game developers, studios and gamers (and composers as well). 
      The answers are completely confidential and no personal information will be published, or used for any other purpose.
      Thanks for your time and help

Ok so for sunriseafterterror, I think the song should come in several seconds sooner after chord press. Here's why: people are impatient and on from one thing to the next. If you don't grab their attention quickly, they'll move on. Even potential employers. The textures and tones are really soothing though. It definitely made me feel at peace. So great job otherwise.

 

And side tip, no one's going to steal your music. It's exceedingly rare for soundtrack music to be stolen. Also, posting your song on soundcloud is a modern form of copywrite. This is because you will have proof that you were the first person to upload the song according to the listed date. And the more sources you post to (such as bancamp, YouTube, etc.) will enforce that even more.

 

I used to be worried about the same thing back in the day before doing extensive research.

 

So, it's extremely advised to upload a high quality version next time.

 

Was there another song you wanted feedback for?

Thanks for everything, joeyondaykeys! I'll be sure to keep everything in mind. As to having other songs, there should be five tracks visible to you as well. Feel free to tear me a new one :D

These are great, How long have you been in the music industry for?

SunriseAfterTerror was my favorite, although you should make it more dramatic, Almost like the "Bard sounds" from League of Legends. It sounds similar but a little more mysterious and cute vibe will be nice with this.

Depends what you consider "music industry" :D

I used to play guitar for a living for a few years, until for several reasons that phase came to an end. Now I'm an avid collector of software synths and a happy hobbyist!

Thanks for the feedback as well, I'll be sure to look into LoL sounds for inspiration.

As far as I can judge these are great.

You're really nailing the soft crescendos and occasional changes in mood, so it doesn't get boring. I think it's important is that game soundtrack never gets too dominant. You can not be careful enough about this. But you're on a good path.

Do you have specific games in mind for these? Somehow I get some outlast vibes from the first one.

 

Keep it up!

Well, not really. I just doodle around with something until it vaguely resembles a tune. I'd love to try to make music to order though. Maybe some day. And thanks for the feedback!

I especially like the smooth mix between orchestral and dark synths in ChasedByABigBadWolf. Which library are you using?

I also agree that the dynamics in these tracks are well adjusted. The tracks really deliver.

Thanks! Haha, gotta love that hanszimmerception :P That ditty is actually an exercise in Logic's factory library. So yeah, Logic's factory library. Most of the synth sounds in my other songs are Arturia.
