Composer needed, paying gig 2009-09-30 13:53:20 Reply

I am looking for a composer who is capable of creating a 30-60 second original spy/espionage theme to go along with a flash animation that will be used to advertise a local film festival in Philadelphia, PA

The animation will be highly stylized in vain of 1960's pop/cubism with a strong blue color scheme and I am looking for a score that relies heavily on woodwinds, brass, drums, and maybe a few strings like piano or bass (Basically a mix jazz mambo with a smooth flow)

Good examples of what I am looking for would be the themes from James Bond, Pink Panther, Team Fortress 2, ect

Please send me samples of your work (preferably MP3s) to my private inbox where we will further discuss the score and payment

Thanks hope to hear from you!

(Intero is another great artist - and recently made a song that fits the theme I think:

And for everyone else who sees this topic I've actually found a great example of what I'm looking for

The first 30 seconds of that song is the exact pacing and amount of bass line I'm looking for, but I would still prefer a more instrumental score like a mellow sax, flute, or even guitar instead of an "electric" feel, so please contact me if you are interested in joining the project, thanks!

As with most people looking for audio, especially with composition, you're welcome to check out my music and see if the style interests you at all, and if so, you're more than welcome to send me a PM or something, and we can figure something out for you. :]

Hey guys thanks a lot for posting your samples here, but if you are interested in this project please send me a private note as well as posting here, there are already around 10 composers applying for the spot, some with demos that are almost done, so if you really want the position you need to keep in contact with me on a steadier basis other than using the forums

But once again thanks a lot for showing so much interest in the project, it means a lot to our production team!

I'll probably send you soon a PM also, for now I'm busy with a lot of stuff but here's a short sample of something in the style you need:

The biggest advantage is that I'm a trumpet player, so I can record real instruments. If money are involved, I can ask some other instrument players to join this project (sax and trombone) to have a realistic sound.

Well I wanted to leave this post up for at least a couple of days so that I could get a good variety of musicians to choose from and so far I'm impressed with what I've heard, however if you have not contacted me by now I'm sorry to say that the offer is closed. I'm at the point where I've gotten my top picks already and I should be focusing on those artist instead of looking for others to apply for their spot, so thank you all again for applying for the position, and hopefully I'll have new spots open in the future

Until then keep up the great work and really thanks a lot <3

This topic can now be closed
