Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

These songs are supposed to go together, so I am posting both in this thread.  I wanted them to be for an RPG video game until I read that video games do not pay royalties, just one time payments.  So I'll need to think of a different application.

The idea though was to have a group of maybe three companions decide to join together on a journey or quest to save the kingdom.  Each member gives their reason for joining (as played by the pan flute).  Then once they join together, they start their journey.

For these songs I use the pan flute, warm bells and the angel's harp.  I'd love to get your feedback.

Maybe they'd work for a story in an audio book or something.

Although I have rarely encountered video games this is what I imagine the music would sound like...! Sweet and nonintrusive!

Thank you Claude for your comments and for your welcome!  I appreciate it.  I'm really enjoying using the pan flute and warm bells.  I don't want to over do it though, so I'm looking for other instruments to work with for video game music like the guitar (which I don't have much experience with), the recorder, and drums.

I'm highly inspired by the Secret of Mana soundtrack as well as the Chrono Trigger soundtrack.

I had a go at making video games music a while ago, perhaps you'd like to have a listen: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDGQzmY9uHXfz25BVU3b1dXUsthv...

Nice!  I think my favorites in that playlist are the 2nd and the 4th track.  So how did you get that gig?  Was that game ever for sale or just for download?

Mine was the last one! It's the only one that kind of fits with my musical taste a bit more...

It wasn't exactly a gig so much as an open source project. I was considering perhaps getting into that industry so I thought I'd give it a go on a volunteer project first and that would also give me something to show. It's an ongoing project (has been going for years and years) so if you'd like to do a contribution you should head to their forums and offer to write a track. Then you can showcase your work in the context of a game. There are many other open source games so you might want to have a look around for something that fits you better...
