Musician For Hire

Postby jzag96 » Tue Dec 27, 2016 9:50 pm

Hi! I'm Jimmy, and i'm new to this community but not new to the world of DooM.
I'm an aspiring video game musician and although my work isn't in any released projects, I've been writing for games for about a year now.
I've tried to experiment as much with my styles as possible, and hopefully I can write something appropriate for whatever mood or scene you'd like.

Here are some example tracks that I haven't released via anything like soundcloud.
Guns Blazin (my most doom-like track) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByvxCy ... sp=sharing
water: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByvxCy ... sp=sharing
Boss Fight Thing: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByvxCy ... sp=sharing

Here are some of my favorite originals songs I've released on my soundcloud.

https://soundcloud.com/jzag96/old-school-duel-original-battle-music?in=jzag96/sets/original-music

Here's a link to a playlist of all of my original released tracks on soundcloud

Thank you for considering me, or checking out my music. Since I still have all these as projects, if you need one of these songs as a midi for your project, that is something I can do.
Unless your project is very large and requires a lot of music, i'm more than happy to work just for experience and credit.

Thanks again ^^
-Jimmy

What an odd coincidence, we have another musician named Jimmy here in this community. =P

I'll have to spend some time combing through your soundcloud though.

Thanks for checking it out. But be wary. Anything outside of the songs I listed are fair game for meme trash.
I do have quite a large folder of songs from cancelled projects I was hired for. The three songs I posted from google drive are from that folder. I'm just unsure what the best way to release those tracks would be.
I'm sure i'll figure it out, heh.

Thank you again for checking out my music. And that is a very odd coincidence.

When you say hire do you mean paid work? Meaning commission?

I'm willing to do one or just a few songs for a project for free, just for experience and all.
I'd probably only ask to be paid if I'm asked to do a lot of original songs for a project.
I'm still very new at this, so I hope you don't mind I don't have a better answer, heh.
I only used the word hire because I felt like more people would type that in searching for people like me.
If you had a project in mind, I'd be more than happy to talk about it.

I hope that answers your question,

-Jimmy

My project is in a great need of a talented musician indeed. The task will be pretty easy for you - if you agree, you'd need to compose MIDI files out of MP3s or WAVs, as I shall need MIDI files as raw materials. I am willing to pay after every MIDI you create for me (though you'll need to help me out with the payment method, as I do not live in Murrica).
I'll be more than happy to pay if you're willing to assist our project.

I'll be more than happy to accept. :D
If you would like we could discuss payment methods and that sort of thing in private messages.

Very well! I am pleased to hear...erm...read that! :D
Our project will use more than 85 music tracks, thankfully, we're done with more than the half of them already. However, we still require the rest to be done, this is why it is so important to find someone who could compose them in MIDI. After that, we can modify them to our liking.
I would advise you to stick to the usual formula. I shall send a sole, short music track first, and you ought to compose a MIDI out of it, this shall be a trial. An appetizer, if you may. And, if we like the performance, we shall send the rest of the tracks over, these would be the paid works. Will this method be good for you? :)

Well, ladies and germs - I received the freebie tune from jzag96. The least I can say is...oh my God, I think I shat my pants... :shock: :shock: :shock:

This guy is pure awesome in making songs & remaking a MIDI from a tune. I just hired him for 100 bucks to re-compose the raw materials I shall wire over, and he does a heckuva good job, I can tell you all about it. Below you can hear the original tune for Tower Power and his MIDI remake, as a little reference.

I strongly recommend people with musical tasks to be done to hire him - he worths every penny!

Since these together are as long as a single midi/mp3, would the price be the same? Would still be interested if only possible in mp3/mod/tracker
