In other news.  
Okay, so I like composing music and all, but I'm usually at a total loss of creativity and I really have no idea what to make.

That's where you come in!!$@

I'm offering to make songs TOTALLY FOR FREE, on request. That means, you tell me you want a song made, tell me what style you want it in (meaning, you direct me to an artist, or you give me some other information you'd like in the song, like a drum loop or melody) and I make it.

The reason I'm doing this is because I feel I work very well through imitation - actual ingenuity is really, really hard to grasp for me, I know. But through imitation, or maybe even through request of friends, it might be easier to make.

So... anyone want a song?

Something orchestral? Is that possible?

I like Wild ARMS 3 music, I guess you can try and imitate that? I can't think of anything right now.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on July 27th, 2004 10:24 am (UTC)
Yeah, I definitely could. Especially seeing how I recently got a giant orchestral sound bank - and I used to make orchestral stuff all the time.

Any certain type of piece? Battle-esque? Overworld? Just introductory epic-type? I've done most of those.

Okay, intro, moving into dramatic scene?
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on July 27th, 2004 10:29 am (UTC)
Yes and geez I already have some good ideas hah. I'll get on it.

And other people can still request stuff. I need good ideas.

Yyyaaaaaaayyyy!! I'll request more when everyone is done.

I would like to hear a song that sounds like Aphex Twin with John Zorn soloing over it. It should be about bananas.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on July 27th, 2004 10:44 am (UTC)
I wish the Banana Man would deliver my bananas in the morning.

Yes I could try that. Mimicing Aphex Twin is a definite chore, but hey, everyone has to start somewhere in their quest to totally jack Aphex Twin's ingenuity for all it's worth.

I'll get back to you when I'm free - right now I'm going for that orchestral RPG intro, yo.

He has a song called C-A-N-A-D-A on that CD.

Something ripping off either Naoki or Sasha would be awes.
The Captaincaptainwinkey on July 27th, 2004 12:47 pm (UTC)
That stupid 'hay guys' icon makes me crack up EVERY FUCKING TIME.

Sasha would be pwn.

Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on July 27th, 2004 12:48 pm (UTC)
Arg maybe. I'm not really sure of Sasha's music as a whole - it's quite varied.

But Naoki though... looooooool I could do that in like 3 seconds.

If you can make a whole set of musics for a custom IIDX style for me, that'd be great. I personally liked 9th Style and 10th Style's interface music the best, and I'd like something similar to that. So I'd need short loops of:
Mode Select
Music Select
Password for IR

And then short 1:30-2:00 songs of:
Opening/Title Music
Ending Theme
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on July 27th, 2004 01:26 pm (UTC)
Whoa, that's an interesting proposal. I could definitely make some loops like that - the opening and ending stuff is a different deal, but I could try my hand at that as well.
Antagonist77antagonist77 on July 27th, 2004 01:33 pm (UTC)
Make me some phat drum and bass loops baby!

One of my friends' sites, he's an amateur composer like yourself and I hope you can find a little more inspiration through him (he mostly does technoish/trance stuff with a little other stuff on the side).
名探偵諸龍azhp on July 27th, 2004 02:02 pm (UTC)
Also, if you're feeling down on the creativity thing remember that composers for movies and games get requested stuff just like this from the directors, and they generally already have the scene/area where the music will be played right in front of them so they know how to set the mood/pace of the music. That'd be another field you could try your hand at.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on July 27th, 2004 02:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah... that's lucky for soundtrack composers, definitely.

The artist you showed me is still out of my league, I think. I know he's just starting out, but man... he's got these genres down. It'll come in time, though...
