Hi! My name’s **Josh Freund** , aka **Drakken**. I’m a **composer** and an avid fan of video game music, and I’m looking to take on some indie game projects. I know there are a lot of composers out there, but I like to think I’ve got something unique to offer. Composing for games has been my dream for as long as I can remember, and it’s thus something I’m _very_ passionate about. I feel that passion shows through in my music – my strength is in creating strong, memorable melodies and songs that will connect with the players and make your game’s soundtrack stand out – no generic fluff here.
Go ahead and check out my work at [my Soundcloud page](http://soundcloud.com/drakken):

[Electronic / Miscellaneous](http://soundcloud.com/drakken/sets/miscellaneous-49)
If you like what you hear and are interested in having me compose for your project, send me a message either here on the boards or to my email at jfreund1 AT gmail DOT com. Note that I don’t just do game soundtracks – I’m also open to scoring for short films, trailers, podcasts, etc, – anything that needs music.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy what you hear!
Just posted a new piano song! It’s another emotive piece in the same vein as [Clutching at Fading Memories](http://soundcloud.com/drakken/clutching-at-fading-memories), though a bit darker in tone:

> Those are great. Good job. What are you looking for payment wise?
Thanks, Qaz\_! Payment specifics would be discussed in private on a game by game basis, but I will say that I’m very affordable. Would even potentially work for free if a game really catches my fancy.

Recently finished a chillout type track I’ve been working on for awhile. It’s my longest original so far, at almost 5 minutes. As the title implies, I picture it playing in a (mostly peaceful) section where you’re exploring underwater caves.
[The Sunken Caves](http://soundcloud.com/drakken/the-sunken-caves)
Updated with a new track I just wrote – it’s a minor-sounding/moody piano piece. Reminds me a bit of In Bruges’ main theme at times, if anyone’s familiar with that. Makes for great late night listening.
[A Strange Encounter](http://soundcloud.com/drakken/a-strange-encounter)
Also recently composed an upbeat synthy/chippy tune for a fun little platformer that’s nearly finished. Will post that here once the game is released.
Exciting news! Howmonica was just released here on Kongregate this past week. It’s a fun gravity-flipping / block-painting puzzle platformer made by [Spydog](http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/TheSpydog). I did the title theme / main bgm; it’s a very melodic, upbeat, fun song – not technically a chiptune but it’s got that feel.
Check out the game here: [Howmonica](http://www.kongregate.com/games/TheSpydog/howmonica)
We also released a soundtrack featuring my tune as well as a great second bgm by [Skullbeatz](http://soundcloud.com/skullbeatz]Skullbeatz). You can listen and download @ Bandcamp here: [Howmonica OST](http://drakken.bandcamp.com/album/howmonica-ost) or just stream my tune @ Soundcloud [here](http://soundcloud.com/drakken/howmonica).
