My name is Matt Collins, and to no surprise, I'm a composer.
My full portfolio is available here: Soundcloud.com
However, if I had to highlight a couple specific tracks I'd have to recommend these ones...
Soundcloud.com <--- This was another track written for Balrum which focused on night exploration. I wanted to highlight Balrum's music as it seems the most relateable to Cropling. I get the sense that the game would have it's share of some adventure music, but also a good amount of calming, relaxing music.
Soundcloud.com <--- This is the latest adventure sample I'd have to share. I noticed that on the page for Cropling it mentions perilous quests, battling dangerous monsters and such. So, here is a track to showcase an example of the kind of adventure music I can write!
Soundcloud.com <--- Lastly, this track is actually one of my earliest, so production-wise not as impressive as newer tracks will be, however a lot of inspiration came from Yoko Shimomura's works and was focused on making a memorable piano theme. Actually have been considering remaking this track with improved production, haha!
I hope you enjoy what you hear, and look forward to hearing your thoughts!
All the best,

Hey there !
There were some new great applications, suprisingly even over facebook and Email. So for those who rang the bell about this, thank you !
I fell a little bit behind my schedule but the voting is on and they are listening to your magic already.
Thanks and sry for the wait. (An Indie Dev should always be to late)

My name's Luke from Sheffield in the UK. I've been composing music for games for a while now and Nobuo Uematsu is my personal favourite composer, so inevitably influences my music a lot!
Anyway without further ado, here's some tunes to have a listen to:
Soundcloud.com : <--- This is the theme from a forest area in an upcoming RPG game I worked on. Heavily inspired by Uematsu it goes through a few dramatic changes throughout the piece, to keep it interesting!
Soundcloud.com <----- This is taken from Action RPG game 'Twisted Guardian.' It's the main theme to the dungeons so it's suitably dark and moody! It's also a slow, evolving piece that builds to a bit of a crescendo at the end.
Soundcloud.com <------ Taken from the same game, but in a contrasting village setting. The music is peaceful to reflect the nature of the village, and instrumentation is stripped back. Inspired Koji Kondo's work on the Zelda series.
I hope you liked the samples and I look forward to seeing more from Cropling, it looks like a really fun game!
All the best,

rbx775, Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and giving your thoughts to myself and all the other composers, it is much appreciated! I will be taking your comments on board and wish you all the best for the future.

Always good to see another Sheffield based composer, Luke! I'm also from Sheffield - small world!
I must say, as a sweeping statement, I've also enjoyed listening to everyone's work in this thread. It's refreshing to hear so many different styles in one place.

Hey rbx775 !
I'm Clément, a french dude, music composer for sure, as that's what you're looking for, and your game already looks fantastic !
Here are few examples of what I can do :
Sunless World ==> Based on the same idea as the previous one, but with piano, different percussive stuff, and different stuff in general.
Halfway Dreaming ==> Very different this time, very dreamy, lighter and still kinda serious/dark in some way. In two parts, linked by the piano theme, just like dreams go from a place to another without even letting us noticing the changes... that's what I was trying to capture.
Exploration test ==> A short piece I composed for a game audition on indiedb, months ago. I first made it kinda sad, but it wasn't what he needed in the end, so I changed it to something happier, and that's what I came up with. Acoustic guitar, flute, xylophones, etc... it's all about some magical wonderful colored world.
That's a part of what I can do, but I hope it'll give you an idea !
All the best for sure, and hope to speak soon.

I really love the artwork presented for Cropling and I think the story is something that I would be very capable and interested in contributing to. You and the team have really built something special and I WILL be playing it. As far as my background, I've worked as a sound designer and music composer for two upcoming mobile games (I wrote about the experience on reddit) that will be released soon. I tend to write Ambient/Textural/Cinematic music the best, but I think with Zelda as an inspiration for your game, the sky is the limit musically; I'm willing to travel down any road with you. I've muted the audio to the Cropling trailer and played it with a few of my piano pieces and I think that overall, I can be a great aesthetic fit for your game. You can listen to my recent work on my composition page. Best of luck with the game and finding the right musician. I really look forward to playing it!

For this point, YES you're right, because is CUE's for film, so the main theme is there.

I'll throw my hat in, Uematsu is my ultimate inspiration.
