Composer Accepting Limited Requests For Emotional Music

#1 Post by Kindred87 » Thu Dec 08, 2011 4:45 am

3/3 Spots Are Currently Taken

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello VN dev's and fans! You may remember me by my previous thread, which I unfortunately had to deem obsolete. I mostly did this because I'm very busy working for a music group, two projects, and for my own enjoyment, all at once. And because I'm so busy, I can't really continue with my previous to-do list.

So, I'm starting over, but this time, I'm going to limit the amount of requests that I accept.

For those that don't know, I'm an amateur composer that strives to create quality, expressive music for games, and I do so for free. My works all hold a certain level of emotion in them, and each song also boasts a cinematic quality. A quality which ensures that each song tells a story on it's own, without the assistance of words or images. I'm best at working with orchestral instrumentation, though I'm able to work with synthetic, electronic, and physcoacoustical effects. And for those that would like to know, I've been composing for one year now.


Anyways, onto the demos! (Note that some of these songs were not composed for Visual Novels. Also note that songs more than two months old do not represent my current level of skill)

Since I'm quite the preoccupied composer, I'm only going to accept requests for single songs. And because I'm only looking for projects needing >>emotional<< music, I may turn down your request.


What To Include In Your Request/Inquiry~

~The emotion/s or mood/s that you'd like to have present in your song. (Example, I'd like a bright, happy song)

~A description of the scene or setting for the song. (Example, During a training session in the dojo, Saber grows embarrassed each time she touches Shirou. This is because they were naughty the previous night.)

~If not included under your profile or in your signature, a link to your project. (Note that this is only for reference, not for judging whether or not I accept your request)

~Optional- A song that you'd like for me to take inspiration from. This song could represent a certain emotion, technique, instrument, whatever, that'd you'd like for me to put into your song. (Example, I'd like a guitar song with a melody similar to this )


After Submitting~

~Expect a response within twenty-four hours.

~Expect me to communicate with you in-depth in order to compose the proper song for you.

~Allow me to take up to three weeks to carry out your request. This is the extreme maximum, though with how busy I am, you never know.

~Understand that I hold the rights to my music, and that I may do as I please with it as long as I credit the song under your project's name. :twisted: (Faint of heart need not apply as the cruel and unusual punishment of audio files may be present)


Recent Compositions~

Contracted song inspired by Hanako's path in Katawa Shoujo~

I'd like to have a scary music pleaseee!!! XD
One that is calm, like in the dead realm where there's snow all over, falling down gently...
Maybe... like the first song in this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiMMz4_v ... re=related
or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSHBCXSHxaQ

You know... like you're walking down a silent snow, it's filled with the dead...

Thanks btw!! I know you're working on Kaguya XD And it'll be great!!!

*sigh* The other composer I requested music from still has yet to contact me again (it's been... a month? I am sad :( ). I'm still hanging onto the faint hope that he'll one day return to LSF, so I'll have to request a different song.

What I need is someone freestyling on the piano. No other instruments, just a piano. The mood is fairly happy at first, but as the song goes on it becomes more and more melancholy as the guy realizes that his current situation really sucks. This scene takes place as Alfonse (guy playing the piano) is showing off to Elise (the girl) his awesome piano skills. By the end of it, she's tearing up a little and Al is freaking out over her ("Oh no, I'm sorry. D-Don't cry! I'M SORRY!!!") because he doesn't like seeing anyone upset. The game this is for is this, and I'd like the song to sound like this in the melancholy part.

Oh. Well here's hoping you'll do a little something for my project. No time limit. Thank you for reading ;)

~The emotion/s or mood/s that you'd like to have present in your song:
A yearning of hope and love.

~A description of the scene or setting for the song.
It wont be used just the once. I'd want to use it for numerous parts of my game.
Such as; when the MC is making a decision to 'become wishful' -or- thinking of her past in which she starved for love.

~If not included under your profile or in your signature, a link to your project.
It's in my sig.

~Optional- A song that you'd like for me to take inspiration from.
Something a bit like this.
Using a guitar or piano is fine.
It doesn't have to be as long as the piece I showed you. It's just something to draw inspiration from :)

Alright, thank you for your requests!

I'll be putting HanaMori in the first spot, as they privately contacted me at 2:45 a.m., which would make them first xP

Next is JustAnotherMe, awarded with the second spot. However, I don't think scary is the right word. Listening to the linked songs, I'd say that you're looking for a creepy or unsettling song.

And then Rewritten Ennui gets the final spot. With how you plan to pair the song with the scene, it should be quite interesting o.O


I'll be finishing a song for one of the projects I'm working for, before I start going down the list.


For Aiurax, and any others who may be wanting a song from me, just wait for another spot to open up...before converging like wolves! xD (Aiurax already has dibs on the next open spot though)

Uggh, sorry for being such a slowpoke everyone! Dx This holiday season has by far been my busiest, though now that it's basically over, I should be able to start completing your requests. o.o

Believe me when I say that I don't like waiting for myself any less than you guys do! Haha, and with that, I'm off to composing ^^,

Hey count me in for request! ... I hope you're still accepting commissions

my request would be something like a forbidden love, leon and trish was so excited when seeing each other face to face and their heartbeat beating out loud and embraced each other with a passionate kiss. Looking forward to hear the emotional music and can provide more details about it if you want to. :3

Officially, I'm not going to accept your request right now. But if and when I get my current requests completed, I'll slot you in for sure. ^^

Just butting in to say I love your work. I've worked with many other composers, but your work is so much more beautiful than theirs (that's not to say theirs are bad, they're good too). It's elegant and calm, and all the instruments compliment each other. Keep up the great work!

Thank you for your words, even though I don't fully agree with them xP. You see, because of how self-critical I am, I always find something technically or structurally wrong with my past works. But because of how I compose, I can still enjoy the song, no matter how flawed I find it.
