You read right! I’m looking to get back into music composition, and your looking for free music, so why don’t I hit two birds with one stone and compose for you!
I’m currently in between jobs, (quit one, looking for another), so until further notice I have a lot of free time on my hands. What I’m proposing is that in this topic, you guys can request music tracks from me, and I’ll queue them up and get them done! My main goal here is to get back into composing for games, and improve my skills. Unfortunately if your looking for someone to create a whole soundtrack for your game and have his time dedicated only to you, then this service will not be for you. I’m looking to share the love around, and create music for people who just want a couple extra tracks, or maybe they still have a lot of work to do on their game, so a couple original tracks here and there as you make progress is what your after!
Alright, lets get to the details!
Use the template below to give me an accurate request. My preferred format is MIDI, although if requested, I will try to orchestrate it. I haven’t had much experience with orchestrating music, although I do have some sound-kits and plugins to hopefully achieve you something in OGG format. This is a public service, so no need to privately message me for the tracks, just post it here, I’ll queue it up, and others can see the free service as well.
- Game Name: The name of your game. If you have a topic for it, provide a URL!
- Setting: The genre setting, and any additional information on the game world and theme.
- Track Description: Details on where this music track will be used, describe the location, event or cinematic**.**
- Atmosphere: Describe the location in detail. Please provide a screenshot if possible.
- Keywords: Choose a couple of words to help define the track.
- Inspirations: If you have any games or music that you’d like your request to be inspired from, please share them here.
- Format: Once again, I prefer .MIDI, but I will try to orchestrate it in .OGG if your completely sure it’s what you want.
I retain all rights to the tracks I make. Only the person I make the track for is allowed to use it, and please credit “Beau Buckley”. By requesting music from me, you acknowledge that you understand this.
And finally, here is arguably one of my best pieces I’ve written. Unfortunately it took many nights, so my published quality in this thread might not match, unless you hit that big donation button below!
If your happy with the free music I’ve composed for you, please consider a donation. Not only will it make me like you more, and make you feel good about doing so, but It will help me to continue this service, and put you above the queue (wink wink), should there ever be high demand for my free service.
