Summary


You are looking at a german modproject based on a dark fantasy like, epic story.
For this project im looking for a very talented composer.
It have to be around 12 or 14 Tracks, every single Track will have a special theme.


How it should be

Dark Epic Dramatic sad

Main instruments/Sounds

Violin Female-Choir deep-dark-voice

Story





The world of ozrean is broken, 14000 years ago a race called the "Vakranis" has appeared, they attack the world with a very powerful invasionstrike. The people of ozrean were unable to strike back, seemingly the enemy was unstoppable. But, before the final battle began, a creature appeared.
According to legend, there is a light from the sky, a creature without name or origin.
In the final battle the three leaders of the Vakranis appeared, the battle seems hopeless, but in the last moment, the unknown creature saw her destiny and accepted the challenge.
The creature fought against the three leaders and finally won the fight.
After the
incredible fight the creature went back to the place she comes from.
A giant explosion signs a new age of freedom an hope.

Today, a new threat rises, an alliance of "Navras" and "Vakranis" has joined the world.
The ancient star of the vakranis approaches the world of ozrean, everyone can feel it, something is on the way to change every known world.

You are a guard, a special guard to protect princess Laxia, you and the rest of your ally are joining a meeting of kings. The worldleader has died, Laxia is his only
descendant.
The other kings
have convened meeting of all leader to determine a new worldleader.
Isafir, a girl you met on your ways in fightschool, is always there as consultant.
The meeting is on the isle Virmacer, but before our "politicians" arrive, an ancient shadow will rise again.

"With the arrival in Virmacer, the disaster was in full swing ."

Hey Vakranis,

I just stumbled across your post, and I want to leave a little note. Not particularly about your post, but more a general thought that I feel urged to express:

Should you not leave it to a composer how "to do" his work? 
Your first demand is good and perfectly fine. "How it should be: Dark Epic Dramatic sad" <- Here you express a result, a feeling, a mood you want to be achieved. This is perfect, because - if you already have carefully planed your game - you already have a story, a setting and an overall idea of the design and aesthetics and, of course, the music has to fall into line.

But in the second line you more or less tell the composer how to do his work and which "tools" he ought to choose. This might be fine as well, as you are free to demand whatever you want - but I see posts like this quite often, and I feel there is a lot of creative potential just thrown away.
I don't know how strict your vision of the soundtrack is and there is nothing wrong with writing down a personal preference or maybe even naming some specific tracks as role models. But while you are asking for violins and choires (which is just asking for the uber clichee of a fantasy soundtrack), a lonely medieval flute and some deep textures (pads) might just nail it. Or anything else completely off the line, that a creative composer might come up with to fit the needed emotion.

No offense intended. Just a little thought from a composer, seeing to many people asking for a "sound" rather than a feeling. :rolleyes:

Thank you for your critics, i have to say, this is my very first "searching for" thread ive ever made.
I tried to make it the best, but i dont really managed it.

At second, my english is not that good then yours, i have to use a translator. I hopely will manage it, the german part of the project is way way way better...

I would be interested in working with you on this. I'll PM you a link to a quick mockup - in the style you have suggested - when I get home from work.

Thanks,

Hey there. This project sounds like a lot of fun, and right up my alley. Take a look at my Soundcloud, there's a link in my signature. I've worked heavily with strings and choirs, and this type of music comes easily to me. Take a look at my demo reel, or at my "Suite for String Orchestra" in particular.

Sorry about that, here's a link for you! :)

Definitly cool, could you make a little mockup?

Lets say, a small track about 2 minutes with a dark long theme? Just for testing your ressources.

:)

Apr 19 2013, 12:22pm Anchor

A mockup? Or an entirely new short piece?

Apr 19 2013, 12:28pm Anchor

Just a new track, entirely new. Just testing the ressources and quality.
The Hypertrance track is beatiful, i could use it just how it is in EtKiina, fits perfectly for a strange dungeon. :)

Hey there! The style of music you're asking to compose would be perfect for me right now, since I've been thinking about doing something like this just for fun. I'm not yet sure whether I have the time to compose that many tracks for you, but you could take a look at my soundcloud page, see if you like my music, and maybe I could do something for this project. :)

Here's the soundcloud page: Soundcloud.com
The most relevant tracks for the style you're after would probably be "Sail Her To Hell" and "We Will Stand Strong". "The Flash" could be interesting, too, although it's got some ethnic and synth elements in it.

Thank you! It's my current work in progress, I'm quite close to finishing it. Of course, unless I am able to get my pieces performed and recorded, I am restricted to MIDI recordings from my software- Finale 2011
"Music for Brass Quintet" is unfortunately MIDI, and there are MIDI samples in my Demo Reel.
If you are OK with this, I'd be happy to try and get something together for you

Your music is quit awesome, but i have to say, this is a non paid project.

If u agree you can start to make a little test track. :)

I don't get it what's hilerious ? . . have you bothered to listen to the user made stuff ? . . obviously i don't use guitar with every track i make, this was simply to demonstrate the quality and technology of my tracks, the realism of the orchestra . . but suit your self . . i'm glad i made you "Laugh" . .

Dear fustrun,
Hopely i dont offend you, my english is not that good. "Hilarious" i thought it means something like "very nice" or "super". sry for my bad lang.
All your stuff on Youtube is very nice, every single Track, your skills with the Guitar are very impressive, as special the Halo Theme.
Just sitting in front of my PC hearing your music and saying "wow".

Its just the thing that i dont need the Guitar, in no track of the soundtrack, it just dont fits in the Theme of EtKiina. :(

Oh ok well "Hilarious" means very funny, but ok no worries :)
I have all kinds of tracks without the guitar too, don't pay attention to the guitar because i make all the tracks from scratch, i create all the orchestra and choir for example listen to the "Transformers".
But i see you already have some one so if you change your mind PM me and we will talk.
