Your “Working Idea” clip on your MySpace page sounds strangely familiar…

Topic: Collaborations / Band looking for some gigs.

Kind of late to this post but as a musician I have to agree with NikolaNS for most of it. I make very little money with my music but I do it out of pure enjoyment. I’ve been writing dance music for 12 years now and have probably raked in just under $500, most of which came this year when I started writing work for websites. I’ve also written music for quite a few Flash games for free. Because of all this I’ve been receiving lots of opportunities to be a part of bigger and better projects. You have to start somewhere and give a little to get something back.

I’ve put myself out there for years, given the listeners free reign over my material and not once has anyone done anything questionable with it. Having a site like MySpace or YouTube host samples of your music benefits you in every way. It doesn’t need to be anything special. You can have a look at mine if you like. http://www.myspace.com/djsynthr

Topic: Collaborations / Electronic Musician Available

Sorry to everyone that has been expecting an answer from me. I’ve been pretty busy lately and pretty forgot about this post. Once again I apologize.

Idoyehi – We’re all set to go like I mentioned in the email. Right now I have a bit of music written out for your game. I know it’s early but ideas come and go and I always try to get them on “paper” before they’re forgotten. I’ll send you the sample soon.

Sadoff – Sorry I took so long to get back to you. I sent a message to your account that you can check out.

Praporshik – Thanks!

Topic: Off-topic / Today's Hottest Music

You guys are forgetting that a lot of these “musicians” you speak of just rap/sing and nothing else. They don’t song write, mix their albums, master it or even write their lyrics half the time. If these artists need to use a program to correct their “talent” aren’t they no more then a figurehead for a brand? What is this figurehead really contributing? It takes a team of people to get to the top. It’s not just the face you see on the album cover.

With that being said it has always been obvious that the music industry has never required talented musicians to make money and since their formula seems to work there’s no reason for them to change their ways. There is talent out there but it’s up to yourself to find it. The radio certainly isn’t going to play it for you.

Topic: Collaborations / Zimmy Game Team (No More Joining)

I just read this entire post and it looks like a complete mess. A lot of people have abandoned ship marked by their lack of replies. You might need to regroup to find out who’s still manning this thing.

Topic: Collaborations / Electronic Musician Available

Oh but of course, Cmech! I just don’t have the time to write anything new for anyone that’s all. Like you said, just put SynthR somewhere and a link to my MySpace page and we’re good. If you need either of those songs in a smaller mp3 size let me know and I’ll see how small I can make them without ruining the overall quality.

Topic: Collaborations / Looking for writers to review games

This sounds like a great idea. If I didn’t have so much on my plate already I would be inclined to help out. I’m currently in school for Journalism and love writing honest, plain speak, laugh out loud articles :( Hope things work out for you though!

Just want to let everyone know that I’m currently not undertaking any new projects. If my schedule frees up in the future I’ll be sure to announce it in this thread but until then good luck and thanks to those who have allowed me to provide music for their games!

Moon, I’ve received your e-mail and will have things set up for tomorrow night.

Brian, I sent you a private message about your request. Sorry I can’t be of any help at the moment.

Topic: Collaborations / Looking for coder to implement API, Pre-loader, and music as well as mute button.

I don’t think he’s looking for music. He’s asking for someone to help put what he has into the game. That’s how it reads anyway.

Topic: Collaborations / Needing an artist/musician/level designer

If you need music you can check out Ray_O’s stuff. He has a post about his work here. You might want to give him a try. Good luck.

Topic: Collaborations / Grand Tactical RPG Need Composer

Wow. Your demo is pretty deadly. A lot of work has gone into it and it really shows. Fantastic job.

I happen to be a musician myself, not to sell myself short, but my musical styles probably aren’t what you’re looking for. If you’re interested in hearing my work I have a thread open detailing who I am, what I can bring to a game and samples near the bottom. I’ll let you be the judge.

Topic: The Arts / Free (CC) Music for Developers

Greetings all! I mainly write electronic dance music but all of my current tunes are free for use as long as credit and a link to my website is given within the game. High quality versions of all my songs are listed mid-page. Here’s the link:

Also if you’re looking for original pieces of music and SFX I have a thread open offering my services for free, as long as it’s not a gigantic project. I’m currently doing some work for Up Studios but have enough spare time to help anyone in need. Here’s the topic:

It’s 4:30am and I decided to check the forum real quick before heading back to bed so please excuse the short reply. That sounds great Up and thanks for your interest! I had a quick look at Cannons Crusade and I can see where it’s going. I didn’t have a chance to listen to the sound effects, being late and all, but I’ll be sure to check it out during the normal hours of the day! I’m sure I can do something with anything you need help with.

As for Nebulous, that’s a sure thing. I can provide anything you need for that song or any of my other ones that you might be interested in. Loops, individual samples etc.

Send me an email when you get the chance. I think it would be easier to communicate that way. synthr(at)hotmail.com

Talk to you soon.

Topic: Collaborations / Electronic Musician Available

Greetings everyone. I’m a independent musician looking to freely provide my services to developers in need of music. I mainly write original Electronic based music of various styles and would like to collaborate with anyone that’s currently interested in those genres or is open-minded enough to give it a try. Samples outlining some of my work are downloadable near the bottom of the post.

Things I Can Provide For Your Project Include:

- Entirely original pieces of music built to fit the theme(s) of your project.

- Soundscapes and ambient work.

- Short loops or multiple progressive loops.

- Voice work.

- Sound Effects.

- Work in various sizes and file types.



What I’m Looking For:

I’m a honest, good-humoured and open individual and would enjoy working with like minded people. I take my work as seriously as an artist can and hope to find individuals that are willing to see their project through. Whether your project is a simple puzzler or a full blown MMORPG, I’m up for the task.



Biography

“Matthew Le Blanc (born December 21st, 1983 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) is an independent electronic artist who writes video game inspired dance music under the name SynthR.



Falling in love with dance music in the early 90’s, Matthew began writing in 1997 using Propellerheads’ Rebirth software, later transferring to Fruityloops Studio in 2001 and Propellerheads’ Reason 3.0 in 2006 which he still currently uses.



Influenced heavily by music from traditional role playing video games and various Electronic artists, SynthR attempts to fuse the danceability of electronic music with themes of adventure and excitement. Conversely, as an independent artist Matthew Le Blanc strives to take his music to the next level by utilizing his creativity, musical understanding and aspiration to do something different in hopes of writing uniquely enjoyable pieces.”
