Additional information regarding the style and genre you're looking for, as well as the amount of workload you'll be expecting would be very much appreciated, but the offer seems interesting!

Is there a particular style you're looking for? And how many different tracks/pieces of music do you envision in the game?

Here's my 2011 Demo Track:

What the hell... On the VERY rare occasion someone actually offers money, you could keep your mouth shut and not offer your work for free. There are TONS of opportunities for you to work for free, but don't be a douche and take away an honest man's work by whoring yourself out like that.

Damn it.

I don't know if his post really directly states that he's willing to work for free, so I'm not sure if that's what he really means.

But yes, in case that he does, I think it's a very bad idea. The reason many people treat musicians as disposable on the internet is because there are so many of them that are willing to devalue their craft even when others are already offering them value.

I think he did, here: "offer myself as a volunteer soundtrack or sound design composer"
And that's exactly my point. Musicians need to recognise their own worth before others can see it.

In his defense, if you look at his other two posts, you'll see they are EXACTLY the same. He obviously has a template which he copy and pastes for every opportunity he sees. He could fix up some grammar lol

But yes, he should have read the first post thoroughly and acted accordingly. On the upside, the fact that OP is willing to pay money shows that he wants quality work for this project. He's not going to go with somebody for free when obviously a guy who charges money will have a better output.

So...
Back on subject. OP: You're offering $400 but for how much work?
I charge at least $75 per minute of music, is your $400 enough to cover what you want?

I'm able to write in many genres including recording real guitars, bass and vocals in many styles.
Here's a track that shows diverse number of genres all in one: http://soundcloud.com/metalrenard/adventures-of-the-maniacal -lord

Indeed. Treat yourself with a little respect! If someone comes around saying they're offering money for a gig.. guess what? THEY are going to be making money off of the end product. Don't you think your work is worth something? If you don't, maybe you shouldn't be volunteering in the first place. When you cheat yourself, you cheat everyone else. Be kind to yourself and the other musicians around here.

With that in mind.. neverr share your rates with the class publicly. That leads to everyone trying to undercut everyone and by doing so.. ruining it for EVERYONE.

Some of you might just wanna work on something, and are so excited you don't care what it is or how little it pays, just so you can say "i did this". Which is awesome. If you don't love what you're doing, you're doing the wrong thing.. But some people here would like to get some monetary rewards as well as spiritual.. Keep them in mind too!

It's freaking awesome that people are coming to the audio portal offering to pay for services. Encourage the flow of paying gigs. Don't stifle the progress.

Good day

Sorry everybody for missunderstanding, my answer would be i do not willing to work for free or not for free im willing to WORK with music, sound in a game industry, my kin to music and sound in gaming is on the first place, i love what i do and i'm not going to cut somebodies throat if he said something wrong and of course not going to fight between composers, CJ-s or anyone who willing to have this position. For me it is all about the music not about the money and as i already said, no i was not intending to show that i'm ready to work for free i just have a pretty high demands to myself so the firs step would be for game production company to listen to music that people offering, not read the words they write as not everybody can be literate in a language but can be really creative in a Music creation domain. So sorry one more time for unwanted provoke, i didn't meant to offend anybody.

Sincerely

Mike

Ah, I see, it's a language problem then. Fair enough. :)
Though...

This is also a provocative thing to say - working for money does not mean you do it for the sake of the money...
Anyway, enough off-topic. At least that's cleared up.
