Artists, We Need Composers and Art Monkeys Here

If you are an artist or composer who does sounds, music or graphics, please reply to get some free promotion for your company.

I’m looking for the following people:

  • Composers: Music or Sounds
  • 3D artists: 3D modeling, Texturing, Animations and so on
  • 2D artists: Pixel art, animations etc.
  • Anything related to graphics, visuals or sounds
  • Art resources (links to forums, art packs etc.)

If you are an artist (sfx or gfx) please feel free to comment to this blog entry and mention your details. I will gather a big list, and mention all you guys in this blog later.

I would also like to help with this question (from musicians):

We are doing market research into dance/electronic music and are wishing
some information on the process of getting music into particular games.

Would you be able to offer any information on in music syncronisation? how would a band go about getting their music into a game?
Do organisations outsource or is it done internally?
Is there a particular type of game for each genre of music?

Would you know anyone that could help?
Do you have any contacts to organisations who syncronise music into games?

Is it the main corporations like EA, Microsoft that make these descsions? I
have contacted them, but I have had no answer.

I have no personal experience on how would a band go about getting their music into a game, but I would presume it would mean showing demos and getting contacts within the industry. I’m doing indie game production, so I have no direct contacts in the big companies.

RESOURCES: Some composers & artists to check out:
These guys have contacted me in the past, so check out their sites. If you have a similar site, reply to this blog entry at GameProducer.net and I’ll update the list.

  9. hi,

    my name is jean-marc lederman and I do music (and sometimes sfx) for videogames. I’ve done a few that are successful: Atlantis Sky Patrol, Titanic Hidden Expedition, Mystic Inn, Fairies, etc…
    my aim is to free lance soundtracks and music but work with the development company from the early stage so we can build something solid and intricate from the start and make the gaming experience something totally immersive.

    just call me in, i’ll be there :)

  10. Hey,

    SILVERsounds is a team of composers dedicated to bringing you soundtracks for films, T.V and games at the lowest competitive prices. We cater towards large developers at a commercial standard but also deliver the same quality to indie developers, with dramatically cut prices that you – the independant developers – can surely afford. We have also started our Royalty Free Music Archive and we plan to release an innovative new sound effects library over the next year or two.

    A bit vague. Care to elaborate on your intentions/motivations/expectations?
