I have stopped offering my composer services to the soundtracks of gay anime and furry porn game developers.

I can no longer stand it, I used to think that I am smarter than everybody else for being able to work from home doing what I like while my friends have to go to their workplaces. But the more I improved myself the more I realise that all the soundtrack I compose are for dating simulators that are either about furries, anime gays, or gay anime furries. I have been unable to find a composer role for normal games.

After thinking about it for a long time I decided that I prefer to work a regular job and compose music as a hobby than to continue working for projects that I morally disagree with. So there's been that improvement.

There is something I need advice on, there's this developer for a gay anime porn game that has entrusted me the role of the sole composer for the game, and I know that if I left now they would have a hard time finding a composer in time for the deadline. I don't know what is worse, contributing to degeneracy or betraying someone's trust. Probably overthi

[Video game music] Years of delays, fake updates, and "troll" accusations: A popular composer's Kickstarter symphony

Jeremy Soule is one of the most well-known names in video game music. He's composed the music for some high-profile games such as the Harry Potter PC games, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, the Guild Wars series, and the Elder Scrolls series, as well as many, many other games throughout the years. He reached #5 on the UK station Classic FM's 2013 Hall of Fame vote. He's been counted as a favorite composer of many, and to this day some still fret about his potentially not being involved with The Elder Scrolls VI, saying the series wouldn't be the same without him.

As fantastic as his work is, he's certainly been a figure of controversy in the past. He once compared music piracy to the Holocaust. And then DirectSong, his online store where he sold his soundtracks, became notorious for not fulfilling paid orders, to the poi

Love to all, believe in yourself, please. I had nothing and kept my head down and worked and this happened. 2 days of celebration and then back to keeping my down again and working. It’s the only way to success.

The composer of a song should get more credit than the singer

Think of your favorite song. You probably have no idea who wrote/composed it, yet I'm sure you know the singer.

And that makes sense, because that's how songs are marketed these days. The singer is the presenter.

The thing is, there are are so many singers (or at least people who can sing well) out there nowadays. Today with computers everyone can sound somewhat decent, regardless of good they actually are. Obviously good singers will sound better than people like me no matter what, but the point is, having a good voice doesn't make you that special anymore. Even if you are really good, there are probably hundreds of other singers who can perform your song just as good. (and some of them will sound exactly like you)

Composers, on the other hand, HAVE to be unique. I not sure how it is in the US but in most countries it's illegal not to be unique (not to mention how hard it is to think of a new rhythm).

And at least for me, listening to music is more about the music than the wo

[Rant] "Established" composers that don't give a fuck about their audience

Another time trying to figure the jury of a competition, to no avail...

I can see an article about last year's winner, so let's google the piece! Nothing??!! No score, no youtube, no soundcloud, nothing! Ok, let's google the composer in general... He has a blogspot website with a list of works, and he has a couple of pieces in a publisher's site. Googling any piece of the list turns out only the publisher's site (with no previews), or nothing at all. I only can find a clip of him playing folk music, so it's unrelated to the competition.

Let's google one of the judges! He has a fancier website and he appears on a publisher's database. He teaches at a conservatory, apparently has earned many prizes, and seems "prestigious". I only can find a few works for children's choir. Nothing else. I could also find a podcast interview with only platitudes.

Let's google another of the judges! Meh, she's not a composer.

Stockhausen is an S tier genius in my estimate. He’s my favorite because he’s never written anything that bored me. Traditional formats and tonal music tend to bore me more easily during a slow movement, etc. He has this enormous gift of captivation.

Seriously, you don’t need musical training to really understand his compositions. It helps to, but all you need is some imagination.

His music isn’t distressing at all for the most part! I enjoy his compositions the same way I enjoy listening to older composers, but even more because his breaking of all rules because a source of pure, unbridled happiness and exploration.

Just listen to KlavierstΓΌck IX, Tierkreis, Stimmung, Interstellar, or Studie I. Or any of his works. He’s a source of musical gold and I find the works expressive and not dry at all.

Edit: To clarify, I don't think his works are as easy and comforting as listening to Mozart or Tchaikovsky, etc. I think you can listen to St

Happy birthday to two of the 20th century’s most productive composers. Johannes Brahms was born May 7th 1833 and Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, born 7 years later, in 1840. Tchaikovsky described Brahms as a β€˜giftless bastard’, the first time they met.

What are the "healthy" way to promote ourselves as a composer?

Hello!

Recently I've seen posts on other subs like "After 1 year, I have X amount of listener on Spotify and X-Y-Z, here's what I learned". I was wondering what were the healthy ways of promoting ourselves as a composer and increase traffic to our portfolio/Spotify.

For example, I saw a post in this sub where the general idea was: "I don't want feedback, just posting here". People reacted saying that this was not an good way of promoting compositions (and of course downvoted the post).

This made me wonder what was the most efficient (and healthy) way of doing it? How did you guys do it and how well did it go?

I am Tommy Tallarico - CEO of Intellivision & creator of a brand new video game platform. 30yr game industry veteran, Guinness World Record holder, video game composer, contributor to 350+ games, Video Games Live tour creator, host & co-producer of 3 video game TV shows, Steven Tyler’s cousin- AMA!

Yo! Can you believe it's been five years since my last AMA? I can’t! I’m happy to be back, answering any and all of your questions!

So what’s been going on? My life over the last few years has been consumed by bringing a vision to life -- a vision of bringing people together again, having fun playing video games the way it used to be. A β€œwho’s who” roster of industry all stars (AMA about them!) and I are creating a new video game console called Amico. We have built an AMAZING team of people across so many disciplines, and I’m excited to share what we have been working on!!!

This whole adventure started when we watched a rift in the video game industry grow wider and wider. Simple, social, couch co-op gaming has taken a backseat to extreme graphics, complex controls, and expensive hardware. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that, I’m one of those gamers, but we have excluded so many people from gaming by creating these huge barriers to entry. Growing up, almost anyone was able

A good soundtrack can elevate an "ok" movie into a good one, or a good movie into a classic. Who are some of your favorite soundtrack composers and songs/films?

Henri Mancini -The Pink Panther, Hatari, Charade, Breakfast at Tiffany's. Baby Elephant Walk from Hatari always puts a smile on my face

John Williams - Jaws, all the Star Wars films, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Superman, Home Alone, Saving Private Ryan... And this is only a fraction...

Ennio Morricone - The Good, Bad, Ugly and other "man with no name" westerns, The Untouchables, Two Mules for Sister Sara, and of course Once Upon A Time in the West

Cello repertoire by BIPOC composers.

In an effort to expand the average cellist's repertoire, I think it would be great if we could share as much cello music as possible by BIPOC composers. As Europeancentric the standard repertoire is for cello, I think we all could work harder to broaden our own repertoire, as both a way to educate ourselves as well as our audiences.

Kiyota Manami's (one of the composers for Xenoblade) thoughts on remastering the soundtrack for DE. Translation included.

SLIGHT SPOILER WARNING: Some of the later song titles give away spoilers.

 

 

Kiyota Manami wrote about her experience remastering the soundtrack for Definitive Edition: https://note.com/manamikiyota/n/na7dd0237be3f?fbclid=IwAR25GIHsyya3NtxGJZ4ZYqj1wcP6suhVXd1cA1nMe_8FtA5fCEvytz8Y_hI

I've translated most of it, but skipped a few sentences that weren't important to Xenoblade. While Kiyota obviously wrote it from a first person perspective, I've chosen to do it in third person. Here we go:

 

Kiyota mentions how she mainly was a singer before getting the opportunity to do Xenoblade’s soundtrack and that from that point she started working as a composer, which she had been aiming for for a long time.

As she was tasked with rerecording and rearranging all the tracks she had made for the original, she had to

In honor of pride month , I thought I’d share a little bit about some Lgbt+ composers

Lesbian Composers

  • Ethyl Smith (1858-1944) was a lesbian. She had several relationships with women, including a brief fling with author Virginia Wolf.
  • Jennifer Higdon (1962- ), a composer acclaimed for her violin concerto and a professor at Curtis institute of music, is a lesbian and has been married to fellow musician Cheryl Lawson since 2015.

Gay Composers

  • There are some music historians who believe that George Frederic Handel (1685-1759) was most likely gay. It is not known for sure, because he was an extremely private man and no viable record of an actual relationship exists. However, the social clubs he was a part of were widely known to be frequented by homosexual men, and many of his friends were gay. His music also includes many themes that could be interpreted as allusions to homosexuality. He could possibly have been just an β€œally” in the gay circles , or he could have been asexual, but the most likely conclusion given the evidence is that he was himself a gay man.

I'm Johan Lenox, an orchestral composer and producer who's worked with Kanye, Big Sean, No I.D., Mike Dean, Lil Nas X, and co-created the show Yeethoven. AMA

Until a few years ago I was completely immersed in the classical world as a composer and never listened to really any contemporary hip hop or pop music. Then a friend played me Kanye's MBDTF album at a house party in Massachusetts where I was tripping on acid. I realized Kanye had the kind of platform I need to do some crazy shit with music and eventually help bring classical back into mainstream culture. A few years later my friend and I created Yeethoven, which used a live orchestra to mash-up Kanye and Beethoven and help explain why so many classical people love Kanye's production. Since then I've worked as a producer alongside Kanye, worked on Astroworld, produced for Lil Nas X, and spent countless days working in the studio with No I.D., Big Sean, Vic Mensa, THEY, Snoh Aalegra and others. Here's some videos of me opening up Logic sessions from artists I've worked with. I'm als

Am I a composer or a female composer?

I'm a classical composer, and an ensemble I'm in is playing one of my pieces at the end of the year.

The conductor deliberately programs pieces by women because it's an important part of fixing the inequality in the classical music industry (where most ensembles play the same music by dead white guys over and over again).

At concerts, he does a small speech about how it's important to keep programming female composers.

This is where I'd like for you to pause reading and make your own opinion on whether this is a good thing to do or not, before I share my opinion.

My opinion/dilemma: I don't want to be pigeon-holed in the 'female composer' genre. I want to be treated /exactly/ the same as male composers. I think mentioning that the music is by a women sets it up for failure. I want my music to speak for itself, for people to listen and enjoy, without the idea of 'oh this is by a woman, let's see how good it is' happening before it's even played. I'd much rather 'wow that amazin
