I'm looking for a musician who has the confidence to compose epic music rivaling "two steps from hell" and "position music" et al. If this sound like you then pm me or post here or link me to some samples.  So long as you're less than 'atleast' $3000 per needle drop!! yikes!  smh Epileptic

Hello there,

Sounds like a challenge - would love to hear more!

Check out my website for previous work.

Alternatively, you can listen to my reel directly on SoundCloud.

Thanks and best wishes. Gentleman

Johnny M,
"Before The Dawn" is absolutely 10 star, I will be using it.
Do you mind if I post a link to it here to show the style I'm after. The music is primarily is for cinematic in a space epic. 5 tracks are needed. (..4 now hopefully)


edit: I will comment/pm later on the other tracks I've visited "each".
Thanks!

Calum, why was the vn project cancelled??   Blossoming Insanity is insane! a masterpeice. though not for this purpose.
In fact just about every second track on the album is top grade. from number 6 onward were you saying something with the track titles? Smiley

Thank you for the feedback all. I am seeking a composer with a lot of power and or sentiment.. but preferably power.  I've found a few.
Pardon me for not replying , if I haven't. Please if you would be so kind I'd love to hear further samples. 

As for contacting you, the stages are to map the music to the scenes and see if they work, then contact you to hear your fee.

Thank you for the responses thus far!

VN Project was cancelled due to inactivity of other contributors! It went on for a very long time. It's sad when such things happen but I was glad to have made this music. Thank you for the complements mega! Haha, well the titles were made up by the director of the project so perhaps I wasn't saying something but something was being said by someone.

I am finding your screening process a little confusing. Please contact me (PM here or email [email protected]) if you wish me to make a specific request for new music or to use any of the samples I have sent you.

I await your response.

Good luck with your search.

..screening process a little confusing...

It's just that I want to avoid putting the burden on an artist to say, "here make a track for this" I want to see if the track already exists in its pure perfected form. And then seek the permissions to use it. This has happened and is highly possible.
If at the very least to edit slightly.  I know what I'm after avec le precision.
The game too is malleable so it can be flexed to fit a given track if needed.

right now I have an xml table of all the tracks and their appropriateness on a scale for the scene and what I'll need to do.

I've found 3 of the 5 needed.  A bit unorthodox perhaps... but the payment and credits will be very orthodox.. Wizard

I'd be worried about sound consistency when acquiring tracks from different musicians - and you can't beat customized music that's inspired by gameplay, story and visuals. I believe that libraries and pitching processes like this belong in advertisements, though there is a worrying trend towards this in VGM as well.

Just my 0.02 as an artist who loves the burden of "Here make a track for this".

This is a true concern but after reviewing the work I'm sure it would be 'appropriate' if done properly.  Think of it as being similar to how some games (like mario or sonic the hedgehog) has a different track for each level. and these games have quite a few levels. The major difference is that in those games the levels are all fairly similar, but in my case there might be a wider range of settings/events and so on. So to do a preliminary scout like this is extremely helpful and has its advantage. As a musician I can see how this might be a "worrying trend".  I try to address it by, in the credits outlining the tracks in the order they were used and the corresponding artist, with also a description of what the scene was.

Just my € 0.02 as an artist who loves the burden of "Here make a track for this".
or 20 different artists, all of whom unburdened, potentially making (or having made) "a track for this". But this only works when the designer knows exactly what he's looking for..


EDIT: Ive thought about it and conclude that your right, there's no substitute for a good in house (ie:in project) musician.

Guys I've made a file of everyone who pm'd or posted. Please allow about two weeks before I know for certain that a track of yours will be used. Then we'll start a round of negotiations.   GiggleWizard | Noir Cool 

Thanks again you guys are SUPER DUPER! I almost didnt start the thread, glad I did - some real gems.

I should thank you since you made it on the fly specifically for this. thanks. 
The first one is a bit cluttered but then that was its style. 
"Teddy" is outstanding!!!
Zillobit has an excellent preclimax
Rise of mutant has good sections.

I'll contact you later.

I read your description and I thought I might have something suitable.

http://soundcloud.com/sam-garrone/koriaha-epic-choral-action

I can edit it to your fancy (less female vocals, less electric instruments, louder strings, remove sections etc etc) and if you're interested in the track, you will of course receive a much higher quality version. Finally, judging by the rest of the thread, it seems as if you aren't going to need any composers to make any music from scratch, but of course if you do need that, I can do that too.

You can contact me through SoundCloud, PM, or this thread if you're interested.

Thats some big music. Everything was well put together and it was true to form (genre).
One thing, those female vocals sound so .. relaxed.. like they just woke up or watching tv or combing their hair Big Laff maybe thats why you wanted to remove them.

To all: Sorry but there's some major lag time between sampling/browsing the artists tracks (even the hidden ones on your sites Smiley)and actually contacting you. But all tracks are played immediately and placed into a table.

I've only managed to conclude with 2 artists so far.

Thanks very much! Feel free to link to it here if you still want to use it as an example track.

Hi,

I am Guney. I think the tracks in "Orchestral Arrangement" section of my portfolio suits your project. Please check them here: http://guneyozsan.com/composer-portfolio/

Unfortunately these tracks are not available for licensing but it will give an idea of what I can produce for you. If you comment about the songs, which parts fit your needs and which parts you don't want, I can prepare a quick example for you.

Other examples in my portfolio will be irrelevant with your project but they will give an idea of the production quality. "Beat the Funk up in New York" is my latest production and it reflects my recent production level very well. And this one is the latest album that I mixed:
