Currently negotiating with a composer now. If you are still interested, you are welcome to e-mail your rates/examples of your work just in case it falls through, but we have likely found our man. Thanks to everyone who spread the word!
As I mentioned in my last journal entry, the one area we're running into trouble with our game is music! I've made attempts to contact several artists, but haven't had much luck. So here's the deal.
We are looking for someone to create original music for our Visual Novel/Dating sim. We are looking for a traditional Japanese sound with modern elements (maybe piano or violin for somber tracks, some guitar for more action-oriented stuff, etc). Something like Inuyasha with a little bit of rock to it at times. I have more specific examples I can link. We are looking for an organic, orchestral sound, nothing over-synthed.
THIS IS A PAID JOB. We do not expect you to work for free.
Initially we'd need 1 or 2 tracks for our game demo, with more to follow after a crowdfunding campaign. Ideally we'd like to get a total of around 10 songs, but it will all depend on how much money we can raise. We may also have you work with a vocalist at some point to create a theme song.
If you are interested, please send me a note or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your rates and some samples of your work, along with an estimate of your usual turnaround time per track. Sample tracks in the style we're looking for are a major plus, but not necessary.
The problems we have had in the past have been with communication, so I'm going to be up-front. You must be able to contact me via e-mail if you want to do business, and you must be able to send punctual replies. If it takes 3 weeks to answer preliminary development questions before composition is even started, we are not going to meet our deadlines.
Please spread the word! Thanks!
