  1. Hi there. How do you usually name your tracks, organize and promote them to other people? I have this sense that the name on your track is very important, in order to be clear what the track's content is about. Or is it more intriguing when it's a bit mysterious? Depending of course what kind of an artist you are and what music you make, and what's the message. I ask these, because currently I'm building a of portfolio and website. I make music and other art in so many styles, so I want to make sure my possible clients and listeners can scroll through my work with ease, finding what they might be looking for or interested in. Here is an example how the music list could be: Track 1: Horror 1 Track 2: Adventure 1 Track 3: Adventure 2 Track 4: Horror 2 In this list the track titles have a strong prefix about the content, but lack personality or the story behind it. Now, what if those tracks were actually named with something not so generic, in the same order: Track 1: Dark Corridors Track 2: Flight Through the Sky Track 3: Dream Chaser Track 4: Haunted Valley In this list they are more personal and have some sort of prefix, but maybe a bit vague about the content. However, they might convey the story better. Of course you could combine these methods and do something like this: Track 1: Dark Corridors (Horror Music) Track 2: Flight Through the Sky (Adventure Music) Track 3: Dream Chaser (Adventure Music) Track 4: Haunted Valley (Horror Music) But is it too much or messy? Overall, my main struggle is that I compose a lot of music without actually knowing, what kind of music it is. It just comes from my heart and I'm a bit confused sometimes when the naming phase comes in. Any thoughts on this matter and everything related about promoting, organizing, naming conventions, creativity etc., I'm all ears. Thanks for taking your time to read this. - Edwin Glimmer
  2. I've discovered this bg music in a Mario Flash bootleg game (called Super Mario Remix 3) and I really liked it. Probably is a remix of a bg music and I'd like to know the origin of it. I don't think it was made by the creator of that game, because flash bootleg games used to take songs or remixes from other sites. I know that this page is special for remixes and I've discovered great remixes in this page (for example I've discovered a remix of SMW Castle Theme that was used in another mario bootleg game called New Super Mario Forever 2012). If you could tell me where it comes from. I'd very grateful. Thanks for your attention.
  3. Ready to have your face melted into oblivion via sonic decimation? The type of sounds you will hear are in the vein of the TB-303 and the Access Virus. Here is WIP 3 of Acidity! It's an acid synth fest with additional distorted synths.
  4. Hello all! Here is a heavy electronica track! It's certainly got a dark and heroic vibe!

  7. Here is a dramatic track I made based on my favorite side-scroller game the dramatic influence is based on the bosses in the game
  8. I decided to do an 8-bit version intro as a throwback to all the Mega Man released on NES to keep things more retro I gave it the realistic 8-bit sound
  9. Here is a Mana style score that I created by the influence of the Secret of Mana I paid close attention to the elements and the progression to get a sense of making it feel as if it belonged in the game please let me know what you think
  10. Good morning all, I present to you on the link below my youtube channel which includes musical arrangements for wind orchestra. I hope I haven't put this topic in the wrong place. Good listening to all. I would suggest my remixes directly on the site as soon as possible. Thank you https://www.youtube.com/user/thetigerblack/videos
  11. Hi I'm a new member. In these days I have created a program with a collection of audio from the legendary console inside. I leave you the video link. Ps. The audio of the video is distorted but the original program works perfectly. https://youtu.be/QF6JEE_Y3uc

  13. So this is my latest WIP. This one is the first attempt without soundfonts, and done with VST's and Cakewalk. It's rough, not close to being done, just looking for feedback for work done so far. Thanks:) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1K6bENeWlr67w2fE0-eJ0O80hcuhUuz7d
  14. Hello all. I just recently posted some remixes in the remixes subforum. I am new here and would like to share some WIP pieces for feedback. Here are some tracks to check out and critique. They should give you an impression of the extent to which Metroid, especially Prime, has affected my creative life. I hope you enjoy these and become immersed into the world of Metroid
  15. Hi there! I've been a member of these boards only for a bit, and just joined a remix project. I wanted to ask a favor on this board as I'm having a hard time decide what my sort of side-project band "Immortal Aria"'s genre actually is. The big genre is Classical, then most would call us classical crossover. However we don't release albums full of covers, the album is often a concept, and we hire vocalists from around the globe so the band itself can't really show up in person. http://immortalaria.bandcamp.com (You can stream free) If anyone could take a listen and tell me what band/arist does this music sound like? Who's the first that pops in your head? Here's a breakdown of the track "styles". The album itself is based on the Phantom of the Opera story. A very niche story at that. Some of you may enjoy this, or may not. 1. Orphan in Winter - Orchestral and focused on piano 2. That Summer by the Sea - female vocal (broadway like), orchestral 3. The Bleeding Rose - female vocal (Classical), orchestral, solo violin 4. Waltz with Death - Orchestral, dark, pipe organ, 3/4 time sig 5. In the Mirror - Opera Male Vocal, heavy brass, epic, orchestral 6. Legacy of Daae - Piano/Orchestral, ballad 7. Firelight Through Diamonds - Pop female vocal with strings, heavy staccato strings, pop'ish 8. Chanson de l'Ange - Opera female, orchestral, ambient, huge crescendo 9. Worlds Apart Female/Male broadway-style duet, rock elements (but with drop tuning), solo metal guitar, heavy orchestral, pop-feeling 10. Crimson Petals - solo cello and solo violin, sad, ambient Note to mods: This seemed like the only spot to place this. It's not an advertisement for original music, and not a remix.
  16. Hey guys! I am new to this forum. I have been a fan of Metroid since I first started playing Metroid Prime around 2003. Here are some tracks I made. Hopefully you can judge from the tracks how much Metroid Prime has affected my creative life.

  17. This was done about a week ago. I learned to play it on Piano early this week and decided to do another remix of it. I think this one turned out very nicely. A remix of Ray/Zena-Lan Hard Armor theme from Cyber Brawl. Femme Jazz Armour CG - Cupcom5 Here's the video of the original
  18. Some time ago I wanted to propose a short Xenogear short film based on its own time after the events of Xenogear. I had to deal with other things and decided to launch the Cinematic version of the Faraway Promise melody that corresponds to the animation. Soon I will release said short film. Enjoy.
  19. Hello everyone. I've been making some VGM music this past few days. Feedback or critique is highly appreciated. The Sign of The Vampire Horrors of Infinity Have a good day.
  20. Hi Everyone! I'm a music composer and did my first tracks for video game for Game Jam's video games. Here you can listen to my two OST! https://cyrilperon-dehghan.bandcamp.com/ Enjoy!
  21. Taking a look back, I made music for points in my life... Places I wound up mentally. So, this was my desire to see the cosmos. Every blink of light and every violent storm is a more welcome home than Earth would have ever been. I'd sail a lonely path in exchange for never-ending discovery.
  22. This track was just my hand at creating and 80's era song. It was very popular on Bandlab, yet seemed to rate low everywhere else. Guess it really is about location.
  23. Small teaser for my latest album "Exit" (c) 2018 P.s. Also my other albums available here: Single - Inside Out New Single "Airdrop" Full Album Exit Album "Wind Between Us" (c) 2010 Album "Round The World" (c) 2015 My Piano Album "Dandelion" (c) 2014 Album "Letter From The Past" (c) 2011 Album "I Will Remember" (C) 2008
  24. Hi just wanted to post some new songs I've made here. Is there any way you think I can make them sound better? I'm happy with my writing but not very good at production (yet!). Thanks!
  25. Hey fellas. I'm starting out this topic in order to possibly find out others thoughts / opinions and experience of music as sort of a business if you are interested to reply in anyway. I have actually written a blog post on my home website already about this but i would assume that not many would stumble there, and especially reply anything at all from their end, as no one ever has on either of my home websites. Anyways if you are interested, read it here: https://sunshineartwave.wixsite.com/home/single-post/2018/04/16/Music-Business Now, as you may know, there are A LOT of producers and composers from all corners of the world, especially now in the age of information and Computers, and time of Digital Audio Workstations and their ability to access vast amount of sound design plugins and virtual instruments to use on productions and composing at home. And hence it is rather absurd how many talented composers and producers i encounter online really often, that do not seem to have still many people who know, follow, like them or otherwise haven't made it "big". And then.. on the other end, isn't it rather odd, almost in an annoying way, how big some producers are when their productions seem to be quite simple in the end, often just some really basic repetitive bass heavy beats/basslines and simple leads or melodies, and often also enhanced with some singing to even drown the music further or sometimes music videos to distract you from the sounds themselves. I'm not saying tracks with singing and lyrics for example or even vocal chops are bad, but i see singing and music as rather separate things myself as they are. And not saying music videos are a cancer especially considering i also design some moving effects for my own music videos for the tracks i produced, visual art is whole separate category on its own, but still you can see sometimes how basically "sex sells" on some cases. So the public image out there for musicians of all sorts (composers/producers, bands, singers) is often boosted by gigs and touring, which would kind of be understandable in a fashion that someone pays off tickets to be on some suffocating (in my opinion, introvert here) party or concert/festival, and notice of course someone who might be on the stage of some sort and hence all the people there get to know the person(s) perhaps. And i have heard that those pay quite big sums for the ones that are performing something on the stages, no matter was it genuine band, singer on a mic with some live instruments or even background music playing on some recording, some DJ partying with their already made music and maybe just maybe doing something with the tracks changing on the spot though not always, or some really public figures lip syncing and performing some "sexy" dance crap to entertain or something like that. Then i assume live orchestras aren't as popular among big crowds of "millennials" or something and hence don't pay as much especially to the individual players of instruments that only play the music someone else composed (there might be the composer/designer along though as conductor or something who gets more, the hell if i know) But is music on it's own a dying business, as in someone buying the music instead of tickets to some party or live performance? I mean in the age of internet and streaming services, no one wants to necessarily use their hard earned or otherwise small amounts of money to get some tunes as audio files, when they can basically connect to internet anywhere anytime with all kinds of devices from phones to big pads and laptops, and listen for "free" (or some small prices some streaming services charge such as Spotify for example would be one extremely popular one) and those hardly pay anything to the artists unless you truly get millions of plays, similar to the ad revenue Youtube has. Like when i upload my music to Bandcamp, there hardly comes even plays, but i did get 1st EVER money from my music as donation from a fella downloading my track called 'Sunshine'. Still the 1€ he used, and the 73cents i got after Bandcamp and Paypal fees, would hardly be a notable earning from music from 5 years of practicing and occasionally uploading the tracks online. That in mind, there are still people who would like to support some artists to produce more instead of letting them die out in the masses of others music and without the artists being able to support their productions and future in it, but this too depending on cases, if it would be only few, even few hundred, it wouldn't affect almost at all say if all of those donated/used 1 euro for downloading 1 track. Also assuming that in this modern age, in order for to succeed in business world with music only, you would have to produce a lot of it in order for some people to like at least one of the many, as even tastes in music are obviously different, or otherwise could create what is "ordered" or needed for something and therefore you would have to be doing it a lot for anything to eventually pay off and not just casually doing what you feel like. Would it then just get frustrating and boring and take the fun out of it completely when you are forcing yourself to produce too much? I mean all jobs are like that but would music then feel like work instead of feeling it with the interest and emotion otherwise. One way to get out there as composer/producer only would be making soundtracks of course, but even they aren't as needed always with the vast amount of people attempting the same and getting their better fitting tracks to play on movies/games etc. But still there is also a lot of other entertainment and even advertisements (for example i know a website called 'Tracks&Fields' which has these request for music often, would it be wise to attempt to get your stuff out there and get paid for the effort you put in through there?) so the demand for background music is still strong. Would making these order requests be worthy thing to do in order to get something from the effort? Or in general is music just a fun hobby, but not at all could be considered as a way of making living without touring around (i want to settle down more and stay at home) or basically selling-out and doing only what others order you to do? I mean personally i have practiced a lot of different stuff so i could create indeed a lot of different genres from composing instrumental or orchestral music with virtual instruments, to producing, composing and designing sounds for a lot of different styles of Electronic genres from heavy Dubstep and fast DnB to party vibe House/Trance music. Still i would want to create what i want, not what others want, though for it to be thought as a business, of course you are supposed to give the "customers" what they want, in a way at least. What are your thoughts on general of all this, if you had patience to even read this? Have you thought of same things? What would you like to do? What would you recommend? Are you even experienced about music business more? Do share your intake on this for me and us all at this forum. Thank you.
