Not entirely Gosu-related, but I'm forcing it to be. Some of you guys know I make music and I have made music by contracts in the past as well.
I got some new equipment I'm trying to get used to and I haven't had a steady business in a while which is cutting me.

So I want to make music for you guys. Anything, shoot at me, completely free to use (in non-commercial projects).

I got an itch and I need to scratch it! :D

I don't need your music, but I know someone, who'd like your help: http://www.create-games.com/project.asp?view=main&id=2040
Look at his last post.

Cool thanks for sharing! (To future readers: I can make multiple songs. Just because I may be doing someone else's doesn't meant I can't do yours!)

What are your rates like for music to be used in commercial projects? (Asking more out of curiosity than anything else.)

Completely negotiable at this point. I understand we're primarily indie here and are not made of money. When I make music, it's licensed under me. What typically happens is the client buys the rights to use my music for his game at a flat rate. (say $3-$10 depending on run-time. Usually $3 per minute). He or she gets to use whenever wherever just by signing a document I e-mail or fax to them (and they send back signed). However, other people can buy this same track and use it by this system.

That's pretty typical.

From this I can also bundle the songs together and release it as an album for listeners.

For custom music that I give you complete rights to (i.e. no one else can use it. Not even me.) will be charged at a higher flat rate naturally and a document saying I agree.

But we can always discuss something else entirely. Once I was paid in small portions at a time. That's fine. But once I wasn't paid in about a month and so I just didn't finish working on a song until the last payment was met. It's a two-way street. I do my part and you do yours. :)

Could you link some of your previous work in this thread?
Parent - By Maverick Date 2012-03-01 01:14
The best I can do right now is link you to my GameDev ad (under the name KanonBaum).

It pretty much sums up my previous work. I also made a tune for Twisted Tower (yet to hear back).

Hello, I don't mean to cut into your thread but I'd also be interested in making music for games, and in particular have a new toy to play with (a field recorder) so if anyone needs some sound effects or the likes I'd like to try my hand at it! Let me know

As a fellow composer, I'll let you slide. Just this once!
Parent - - By Spooner Date 2012-03-01 01:13
As a fellow coder, I'll let slide the comment, "Music for your little games" :D
Parent - By Maverick Date 2012-03-01 01:15
As a fellow coder myself, I'll let slide the remark even though you know it's true. :P
