A university graduate from Glamorgan university, I achieved a 2.2 BA Hons in Popular Music. My dissertation was about the interactivity of music within interactive media, however focusing on video games composition in particular. Through the past 2 years I have worked on a few different projects ranging from side scrolling shooters (Ragnarok Arena Remastered), first person shooters (Fps Terminator) and fun platformers (Thread Bear). All projects with different needs and styles. With the compositional experience in composing for multiple different genre of games and projects I am able to compose in any style or genre. With over 6 years of experience in musical education including school, college and university and not only working within the indie games industry but also 2D animation cartoons I am able to adapt to any and all types of media. If you are interested in my services for commercial or none commercial productions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yes it will be a comedy shooter of sorts, it will have some pretty hysterical weapons and game modes, also some great comic voice acting and sound effects. We are still in the early development stages but you should see some more of what it will actually look like character wise and other content in the next few weeks.
Thanks for the question.

Hey there I am loving the look of your new game, I was wondering if you needed any music for your game and up and coming game, my rates are very competitive and we can work something out around your budget. This is my moddb page with some short examples of my recent works Moddb.com
Well hope to hear from you all.

Dreads.maggs @ Hoc Est Bellum (This is war) Revised

Do you know how game audio works? On triggers I mean, you compose a epic piece and then strip it back to make new tracks and then the more epic bits come back in depending on the on screen action this is a example of that, I will be stripping this back for Universe Alliance. If you listen to any game sound track you will find most tracks only being around the 2min mark, do you know why that is? Its because they are used on triggers and might be looped. who ever heard of a cinematic scene or a decent one that could not portray what was happening in less then 2 mins? Thats the only reason why I would need to make it longer is if it was for a cinematic that was over the length it currently is.
Served!

Dreads.maggs @ Ragnarok Arena Remastered Menu track

There is not any distortion on any of the tracks, they were all mixed below 0db which = no clipping so maybe you need to have a look at your volume settings you may be overloading your speakers or headset.

Dreads.maggs @ Musicians at ModDB

Hey all I have only been a member for a few weeks but already I have started work on a mod called Ragnarok Arena Remastered. The project is almost complete but I wanted to get your opinions on what I have produced as well as to make myself known in the group. I am a 3rd year University student in Cardiff Wales UK and I am doing my major project in composition for video games. As a result of choosing this major project I have been looking for work on mods. The music that I want you to hear is just a few short loops as the project I have been working on is a side scrolling shooter which wanted to pay homage to the old games like metal slug, so in keeping with the tradition like the old games I made loops for the game, I put the menu track up and one of the map tracks, if you could give me some feed back that would be fantastic.
Moddb.com Thanks guys and I hope you all have a fantastic new year.
