"My tunes are in that grey boy on the left of my channel.

I hope you'll get opportunities. I read advice by famous game composers saying that someone should go to game conventions. There are hundreds of video game producers, so to speak.

"Wow! Honestly, man, you would write great game soundtracks. That's for sure.
Your tracks here sound highly professional. Have you ever tried to get a job in the video game music industry? If not, then now is the time."

"Its difficult to explain how helpful my music education has been at my college. I entered college as a guitar player and was stunned when I found out I had to sight sing notes off a piece of paper in pitch in solfege while conducting the rhythm. My…"

"Great style. I love the tunes. They remind me a bit of "Legend of Zelda" and "Final Fantasy". I guess you won't have problems to get some composer job in the game industry."

Biochips replied to Denny Schneidemesser's discussion Condemnation towards computer generated music (Sample libraries and such)
"I think even in 200 years there will be classical educated and good composers like you are. Every producer looks for the right man/woman to do the job. Fact is there is highly successful purely computer-generated music that sells like Ambient and…"

"Ok, I'm just very unexperienced with professional music. I suppose we're talking about two different worlds. Certainly the world of the big orchestra is the most difficult and not the one I want to be a part of. My musical "career" has started to…"

"I thought you were a model student !

I can honestly say that a lot of my degree was fairly padded out. I've learned so much more since, and to me education is for life, not just a few years of reluctant cramming.

Many people behave like robots -…"

Biochips replied to Biochips's discussion What about musical education?
"Maybe I've been misunderstood. I don't condemn musical education in any way. The contrary is the case. I admire composers like Hans Zimmer, John Williams, James Newton Howard and Howard Shore for their work.
I myself am a self-taught piano player. I…"

Biochips replied to Biochips's discussion What about musical education?
"But it all depends on what medium you are working around.

Let me explain you something. It's not possible for everyone to write music in a software studio. First of all you need to have an idea. I couldn't compose anything if I wouldn't have played…"

Adrian Allan replied to Biochips's discussion What about musical education?
"Somebody needs to make the distinction between informal and formal musical education. The great guitarist Segovia had no formal education, because there were no teachers to teach him the classical guitar, so he informally taught himself.

However,…"

Biochips replied to Denny Schneidemesser's discussion Condemnation towards computer generated music (Sample libraries and such)
"I don't think that's a tolerant post. I guess every kind of musical education is good and broadens your mind. But you shouldn't condemn people like me because we make music with samples. Do you think "these machines" make the music themselves? Not…"

Leonore replied to Biochips's discussion What about musical education?
"I don't think learning theory and technique literally increases talent - that's more of an innate thing. It does offer an understanding of the intricate mechanism of music, and why something sounds the way it does, which is interesting in itself (at…"

  • Thankyou very much for the kind words! My doors are open to working on computer game soundtracks, I'm keeping an ear out for opportunities :) So lets hope something good comes my way :) Where can I hear your tunes by the way?
  • Thanks Biochips for the comment, and the encouragement, I take much of my inspiration from Zelda tunes, so you hit it right on the head. I like your music as well, very interesting electronic style, keep it up!
  • Hey Biochips, Vielen Dank für kommentar!

    Sehr interessante Musik, Outland hat mir sehr gefallen!
  • Thanks for the comment, Biochips. Great stuff you have here!
  • Hi Biochips. Thanks for your comment. I like your stuff :-) I find it very hard to create this kinda stuff. Too many years steeped in classical tradition I guess. So you have one over on me there :-)

    Have a great day. Look forward to hearing some more tunes.

    Regards

  • Hi Biochips, thanks for listening and for the comments. I very much appreciated them. For a hobby you do pretty well ;)

    I really liked the Outland and Ancient Forest. Nice work!

    Take care.
  • To be good enough or not good enough the answer is in the eye of the beholder, therefor a question of perspective. For what is worth I like it specially "Dreams of the future". Congratulations.
