Hi there, Java Game Makers!

My name is Christian Andersson and I write music for Video Games and Indie Games, game promo videos, etc, using some of the most powerful tools on the market.
I have written some Java games myself, and I am very fascinated with the Indie Game business where I find a lot of creative games.
However, my speciality is music making, and I'd like to see more Java games with some really great music, which is why I offer my premium songs very cheap
for indie game developers (much cheaper than the professional music agencies that sell my songs for more than double the price than I offer here...).

My music is focused on classical music rich with melodies and feelings. I work 100% with music writing. Right now, I have an album with a full game soundtrack
that would fit for Fantasy/RPG/Adventure/Strategy and War games. If you have an indie game where you need some music, you can license my music, 100% legally for a very low cost!

I put a lot of energy and effort in making these tunes, and I hope that it could empower some really hard core Java game dev enthusiasts like you to use my work in a great Java game.
These are my sites where you can listen to and license my music.
Site : http://www.craze.se/shop.htm
Site : http://www.youlicense.com/Artist/ChristianAndersson

Here is my "Knight's Tale 3" album:
1.  Rejoice in Triumph
2.  Tales from the Forgotten Monastery
3.  The Desecrated Sanctum
4.  Catacombs of Unrest
5.  The Sacrificial Chambers
6.  In the Halls of the Dead
7.  The Ghastly Crypt
8.  The Great Adventures of Winterfall
9.  The War March
10. Victory and Peace
11. Wonders - a Hymn to the Creator
12. Night Walk in Sleeping Town
13. Reaching the Enemy Lines
14. Lonely Halls
15. King's Market at Noon
16. Knight Roland Rides at Dawn
17. Audience with the King
18. PoorFishermansHut
19. BuccaneersSong
20. Curse of the Djinn
21. The Treasures of Ra
22. Little Girl Picking Flowers on a Meadow
23. Bard in the Valley
24. Bard in the Castle

All my songs can be re-worked, re-mastered, changed, improved, prolonged and cut - free of cost! New songs will be composed upon request.
It is easy for me to cut out and rework short snippets from my full songs, e.g. if you want a Quest Complete from my song "Victory and Peace" or a Game Over snippet from "Day of the Great Battle".
I can do these adaptions for no extra cost, and the snippet will then be much cheaper.

All songs are described with detailed instrumentation, moods, styles and genres.
Hopefully you will find something in my web shop that can enhance your game.
You don't have to use the default Quick License prices on YouLicense for video game songs. I will accept much lower offers. Just choose 'Make an Offer' in the shop.
(To license music for a web clip, it's already super cheap: 8.25$!)
You can make manual offers from YouLicense, and I will accept much lower figures for indie game developers, even down to 10$-100$ for complete songs.
I am also available for hiring for part time / full time or for a project work do complete game sound tracks.
If you have a MIDI tune that you want to enhance with higher quality, I can do a remake for you really cheap, using top-of-the-line professional tools.

No matter what, you are always welcome to my site to enjoy all my music, completely free for private listening. Maybe it can inspire you to make a great game! :-)

My most recent projects include:
- In-game tune for a coming FPS game (August 2010)
- Dark ghostly song for promotion of an RPG related book (August 2010)
- Dark gothic, aggressive style song for the promotion video of the board game RPG Stregoneria (July 2010)
- Fantasy title song and in-game tune for an indie game, released for iPad (July 2010)
- Music (fantasy/baroque style) for a 3D lab visualization of the city of Malmoe year 1692.
- Music for a museum exhibition of a 3D visualization of of a stone age grave
- Title music for online horror casino game
- Theme music for online game with mafia and James Bond themes.
- Music for a Video Promo of a flight simulator
- Music for a World of Warcraft horde recruitment promo video

Best Regards and Best of Luck with Your Games!

The music is actually superb!

It's a shame though, that licensing it for a 'video game' costs $600.

I think that's a bit beyond the scope of the audience on this forum. Most games are hobby project, that might or might not go commercial one day. With a significant price drop, you might have a few sells!

Very nice! As I'm not busy with a fantasy game atm I'm not really finding that much (except for the jazz song, love that one!) What is the approximate size of the files and if they are large for a web game (bigger than a megabyte) do you also have some midi music?

I really like this music, but like many others I'm not doing a fantasy game. Also, I already have two good friends who compose music for me, but even so... it's worth posting here to make the thread popular enough for others to see.

One thing I think you could improve on is the variety. I feel like there are a lot of intense Lord of the Rings-ish songs here but not many lighthearted or simple songs. RPGs need a good mix to work right, as you're not always in epic battles. Smiley

Just increase the samplerate a bit and you'll get a light hearted piece of music Smiley

Aw. I bet that somebody writing such excellent music will frown upon techno.

>This is great stuff. Ever do any techno or more futuristic suited stuff?
Thanks a lot, Funfy! Yes, but it's not half as fun as writing classical and epic fantasy music. :-)
Besides, there are millions and millions of people doing great techno/futuristic stuff since there are so many free high quality instrument banks for techno/electronica sounds. The professional music agencies (where I also sell my music) are stuffed with that kind of music already. It's easier to get this kind of music accepted at those agencies.

>One thing I think you could improve on is the variety. I feel like there are a lot of intense Lord of the Rings-ish songs here but not many lighthearted or simple songs.
Thanks Demonpants, it's nice to hear that you like my music. Hehe... you are right. It's maybe a bit too much epic in the portfolio right now.
I am actually working on more variety at the moment, so I am writing some slower pace songs right now.  "Night Walk in Sleepy Town" is one of my latest songs, and "Peaceful Forest" is another slow paced one. But you are right, there should be 20 more of those, at least. There will be in a few months. :-)

Thanks, man! Actually, I sold the Jazz song yesterday! My 2nd sale on that song, so that was nice. :-)
>What is the approximate size of the files and if they are large for a web game (bigger than a megabyte) do you also have some midi music?
The mp3-versions range between 2-3 Mb up to 9Mb (320 kbit encoded), but of course, I can encode them in lower quality. All files are available in WAV as well, so the range there is between 10-40 Mb.
I usually don't work with MIDI. I did that long time ago, but today, it's much more fun and rewarding from an artistic view to work with my 4000€ investments in super high quality soundbanks and new hardware.

Thank you all for your comments. :-)

Best Regards

Fantastic!

If we could find graphic artists with these price ranges that would be fantastic too.

I'll certainly work with you for my game in development. You need to compose new music though because the game style is very different. Music style like funky, electro or more.

Great, Kingachi.  Thanks for the bookmarking! Wink
...  There will be more new songs regularly in my shop. Right now, I am working on refreshing some old songs with better instruments as I got clearance to send a music CD to another professional music agency in the US, so I needed to spend some weeks on polishing some older tunes, which is why I haven't written anything new the last weeks.

Thanks, AnalogKid.  Yeah, like h3ckboy quoted, I've touched on the subject before. My talent lies within the classcial/cinematic music genre. I actually have a low cost music shop with electronica where I will grant licenses between 5$-10$  per song.  However, I fear that the quality of those songs with drag my reputation as composer down to the bottom of the deep abyss... or something like that.  Wink
So I will have to write some more and better electronica before I go public with that shop.

*cheers*

No Problem. When time comes in I will like to be able to browse this shop.

Another question: can you record in ogg format? Quality vs. compression is much better than lots of other formats. I'll also have some specific requirements that I may send you if I don't find what I want. Not related to style but to other aspects.

Could just convert his mp3 or wave file. A program called SUPER is what I used to use to convert to Ogg.

No problem. If you buy a tune from my shop, you will get the raw WAV version and you can convert it into the format of your own choice. If you don't have the conversion tool, I will of course do it for you.
