Full-time experienced composer – Marek Domagała

#1 Post by PurpleMind » Mon Jun 24, 2019 11:54 am

Hello!


I am a music composer based in Cracow, Poland. I have been composing for 8 years, professionally for three. In my portfolio you will find four visual novels, an archaeological tycoon, a campaign video, a mobile puzzle game, and some more. In the years 2018-2020 I have been part of gamemusic.pl/gamemusic.net, the biggest video game music journal in the world. I'm an avid gamer, cinephile, an esports fan and lover of dogs and parrots.

I highly recommend this guy. He did an awesome job on a piece of music I asked him for in incredibly short time.
(sadly I can't link because the actual writing of my project never finished) but his music is something I still listen to whenever I ponder going back to work on it.
I'm offering commissions!

(This was a negative review, but I've decided to withdraw it. After thinking about it for a while I feel that the circumstances that led to the review were for the most part out of Marek's control. And he has been very civil about the whole thing. So I don't want to spoil things for him. Best of luck and sorry.)

In regard to what Arty said above, it was a very difficult time for me, as the events during that period led to me being hospitalised for a week. I would prefer to keep the reasons private. Nonetheless, it is crucial to judge one's ability before they decide to get involved AND/OR communicate delays in a timely fashion. Of course, in regard to White Monday, I take full responsibility for that.

Since then, my health has gotten much better and for a few months now I'm again happily taking and completing commissions.

I can definitely recommend this composer, his work is high quality and communication and know-how are excellent. He always responded super fast and checked in every day to show me progress on the tracks he was working on. He also made sure we're on the same page regarding what I want out of the tracks and how they will fit into the game. When I had feedback on a WIP, he took it seriously and was perfectly willing to make changes according to my wishes. The communication itself was over Discord chat, professional but very pleasant and friendly.

I wish him all the best and perhaps we can work together again sometime in the future!

My last comment in this thread was a negative review (which I retracted now), because the first time I worked with Marek things didn't work out for reasons that I later felt weren't his fault. So I approached him again recently, and we agreed to give it another try. He now created a wonderful OST for my game White Monday, and I couldn't be happier about how all this could end on a positive note, after all. :)

Highest recommendation for Marek! Not only is he an excellent communicator, a hard and reliable worker, a conscientious team member, and a patient collaborator, he's extremely flexible and skilled when it comes to composition.

My first project, "Black Heaven: A Necromantic Dating Sim," was based on lofi hiphop-inspired tracks, and Marek was able to go above and beyond my expectations. He was very easy to work with, especially for a team leader with little experience in music composition.

Excellent rates, excellent revisions, and amazing turn-around times. Get Marek on your team, and you won't regret it!

The ship keeps on sailing.

I'm available for new commissions – why don't you surprise me with what you're working on?

Here's what happened recently:

1.Black Heaven: A Nectromantic Dating Sim Demo is out!

In Black Heaven, you’re a former scholar and one of the last survivors of a plague that’s destroyed the world you used to know.

After nearly succumbing to the disease, your life is saved by a mysterious necromancer named No-Eyes, who offers you the chance to escape death forever and relive your past. All he asks are the souls of your former classmates:

Ru, your shy but brilliant tutor
Lyse, the fiery, sharp-witted debutante
Izagi, the idealistic and stoic martial artist

2. PAPAGAI, an Android 'remember the path' arcade mobile game by the University of Information Technology and Management is out!

3. I started working on Steambound game Unscripted, a visual novel about software development. The Demo is out now!

4. I started working on 3 Wishes, a fantasy-Halloween themed visual novel

5. You're next on the menu. I'll be sending you a demo track. You can't escape! *evil laugh*

I recently composed a Sci-Fi ambience track for the GameMusicFestival High Score Competition.The job was to write a short demo for a video material presenting a new gaming web browser, Opera GX. I'm very proud of the sound design on this one!

You can learn more about Opera GX here.

The ending days of October also marked the release of Genshin Impact, and in the first days of November I wrote a symphonic track in the style of the game's great soundtrack.

I. Unscripted is out! Choose your route. Take on your developer dream in Catalina City. Make new friends and enemies. Get your game published.

Get Unscripted on Steam for 10% off here!

The soundtrack from the game will be released in the coming weeks.


II. Recently I got an extraordinary commission to write a vocal-fantasy track for a tabletop RPG session Song of the Mountain. The track's minimalistic fantasy approach reminds me of The Lord of the Rings beautiful music.

Song of the Mountain is a DnD adventure set in the freezingly unforgiving world of Icewind Dale.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Marek on my psychological thriller visual novel, "The Glass Coffin".

Not only is Marek a highly skilled composer, but also an excellent and valuable member of the team. Marek works closely with you to make your project shine, contributing work and ideas that are delightful and surprising. I constantly found my expectations exceeded.

Marek is resourceful, thoughtful, flexible, and dedicated, with a turnaround time, music quality, and work ethic that is unmatched.

I highly recommend Marek's services to anyone looking for an amazing composer and team member!

I've just released the soundtrack to Unscripted – check it out: https://youtu.be/t38ipFSu2G8

This is a combination of chiptune, early 2000s electronic soundtrack music (with the sample manipulation and whatnot), with lots of synthesizers and a rare organic instrument.

For Unscripted, I wrote a total of 14 1-minute tracks, most of which can be combined with one another (up to three tracks stacked together) to create more variety. This means the game has more than 90 minutes of original music content.
