Hello. My name is Marek, nice to meet you! I'm happy to offer my composing services.

I have prepared a demo reel for you. For your convenience, I've split it into three time-divided sections:
1. Old – visual novels: this is where my journey with composing music for games began (on this very forum, too). The pieces have been written 5-7 years ago.

From this folder, you might especially want to listen to Heart Of Gold or Management Theme.



2. 2017-2018: Showing my progress while still selecting the cues that have the certain Japanese VGM vibe to them.

From here, I suggest Winter Date or Postcards (Hokkaido), the first one more upbeat, the second - to the melancholic side.



3. Most recent: This is how I stand now. You'll find a lot of solo violin and harp there.

Here, you might want to listen to Two Hill Spirits or Merchant's Story.
I have been working on video game music for the last 7 years and have already done commercial projects. I can understand very simple Japanese. More about me can be found here.

My go-to rate is 15 $ per one minute of music, including corrections, the number of which I'd love to discuss at the beginning, as it depends on the complexity of the project.

Contact: Edit: Updated my rates.

Hi, I'm Esteban and I would love to be part of this project! I'm a composer experienced writing music based on emotions, have created music for games before and have recently written a traditional Japanese style song too. I'm also passively learning Japanese as well...slowly =P

Portfolio:

Here's an action song in Traditional Japanese style that you might want to check:

Rates:
Compensation varies per project as it depends on how fast you need all the music done, how much work does it require, what type of music rights you want, if you need some help implementing it, etc. I know it might sound complicated but its really easy and there are different options for every budget! So shoot me a message and we will see what you need!

Hi, my name is David Funes. I'm from Argentina. Here you can find my portfolio. It's sorted out so you can listen to what you're looking for. If the type of music you're looking for is not there, I'd be glad to send you more examples by private. Here you can find more information about me and the games / Visual novels I have work on.
I also can speak a little bit of japanese but I'm far from fluent.

I charge $20 USD per minute. From two minutes onwards, each additional minute costs $10 USD. Mixing and mastering are included. Depending on your budget we can discuss the rates.

Hi there! I'm a composer specializing in orchestral and acoustic arrangements. While I might not have as much experience on finished projects under my belt as some others, I have been writing game and concert music for the past six years or so.

You can find my portfolio here.

As for rates, I can discuss them more in detail through PM, but my base rate per track is $30 CAD.

最後に、日本語がペラペラじゃないのですが会話ができ、わかりますよ。

Hello, my name is Giovanni. I'm a composer and I'm interested in your offer.
The links below are some samples of my past works:
- https://soundcloud.com/kayoubi/a-ninja/s-fVCGc - A Ninja, influenced by Japanese traditional music
- https://soundcloud.com/kayoubi/sad/s-tB5Lb - A sad music for visual novel.
- https://soundcloud.com/kayoubi/piano-so ... -1/s-4s5Ig - My first Piano Sonata
- https://soundcloud.com/kayoubi/afternoon-mixing/s-lAy6G - Another music for visual novel
- https://soundcloud.com/kayoubi/endless-journey/s-Hdnso - Endless Journey, heavily influenced by role playing games.
-
- https://soundcloud.com/allforlive/kayoubi-reincarnation - My original ambient music

As you can see, most my songs are dominated by Piano, Violins, flutes and orchestral.

And yes, I can create music from scratch to finish. I've been doing this for 7 years and have published numerous music for games:
- https://youtu.be/48EUibWFpkQ - Manevall Rescue Mission, endless running game.
- https://soundcloud.com/kayoubi/sets/elemental-clash - Some music that I made for trading card game called Elemental Clash.

初めまして、僕はGiovanniでインドネシアからです。僕は7年間ぐらいコンポーザーを働きます。
よろしくね〜

So, as you can see.. I was trying to introduce myself in Japanese. So yes, I can read Japanese.
I'm now learning Japanese as I have a plan to move out to Japan in the next 2 years.
Moreover, we have google translate today so I can look up some words that I don't understand.

As for the rate, normally I would charge around $100/min. That includes 2 revision rounds, mixing and mastering.
However, I'm open for new opportunities. So please, if you have your own offer/budget/concern please let me know.
So, send me a DM and we can start from there.

Best,
Giovanni

Hello, I'm a orchestral music composer with more than 4 years of experience. I specialize in composing dark orchestral tracks, but can do other styles too.

You can see some of my work in my YT channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7eFeg ... DTLbEMbLFQ

I'm currently charging $50 USD per track composed, as long as the track does not exceed the 2 minutes of length. Shorter tracks below 1 minute can be negotiated.

If you are interested in hiring me or know more about me or my compositions just DM me through here, you can send me an e-mail to p0zeta1@gmail.com or you can message me in discord, where you most likely will receive a faster answer: world_creator#9524
