Hiya! So I hope this is the right board for this and whatnot, but ANYWAY.
So I'm an amateur electronic musician and for the month of September I'm going to be challenging myself to create a simple ambient song every day. The end goal is going to be putting an album up on Bandcamp and letting Yume Nikki fangame makers know that they can use the tracks in their games if they so wish.
Now, here's where you guys come in: I'm also taking requests. So if you need a track, or maybe even two, for your game, let me know! All I need to know is if you want the song to loop (Which is a good idea unless you want to use the song as a credits theme), what kind of instruments you'd like to see used, a description of the area it'll be used in would be nice for me, and maybe even what emotion you want the song to evoke. Anything to help me create the perfect song for you, right?
Three things to keep in mind. 1 I've never made a good piano melody or chords or anything, if it's piano I probably suck at it. 2 I usually have a hard time making my songs happy. 3 And I'm even new to the whole looping aspect of songs so I might mess up there! Of course you shouldn't let any of this stop you from requesting any of this stuff, these are just my personal downfalls. If you want me to challenge myself, go for it, that's what this is all about, right?
If you want examples of my work I'll link you to a few relevant songs of mine:http://soundcloud.com/bwarch/flickerhttp://soundcloud.com/bwarch/pinkamena-extendedhttp://soundcloud.com/bwarch/ponder-the-meaning-of-it-all
I think that's it, I'm sorry if this became a bit long winded! I look forward to seeing any requests if people get interested in my own little challenge.
To top it all off, here's day 0 of the challenge:http://soundcloud.com/bwarch/automation-title-theme-day-0
