My name is John Montoya. I make music for Independent games. I want to help the independent community because I know the struggles first-hand (I am still struggling even now). I want to create a compilation of music from various independent musicians, including myself. I planned on using Pledgemusic.com for this campaign. Before I even start the campaign I planned on completing a few tracks on the album to prove that this is a legitimate fund-raising campaign. I wanted to run a contest of various forums like Newgrounds and OCRemix to have some independent artista showcase their music on this album. It will be completely non-profit on my and the other musician's part. The money will only go to the charity and whatever fees I need to pay for these websites.
I also plan on contacting Indie Game devs and ask if they could be apart of the rewards tiers. For example, I can have a donation set for $200. In this tier you can talk to the game devs on Skype and receive a free copy of their game. Part of that $200 will include payment for the game, unless they are willing to give it out for free. Of course rewards such as this will have to be limited.
This project is currently supported by one Indie dev - Xona Games (http://xona.com/games/)-- three #1 games in Japan (XBLIG). I am currently working on asking other game developers if they could help me back this idea.
Now I am here on the Newgrounds forums asking for your participation. This website is known for its amazing content and I would like to include this communty. It was because of this communty I was able to get a job making music for a game that is out now on Google Play and The App Store.
I would like to hold a mini-contest to see which artists I can feature on this album. I want to get at least 5 - 10 Newgrounds artists on this album. The only thing I ask is you post a SoundCloud link to your track and disable the downloads. If the track is good enough I will feature it on the album. You can also send me some of your original work that you have already submitted on this website. If I like your work I will ask you to create a few original tracks to be featured on the album.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Please contact me at [email protected] for questions or concerns.
Also, tt has been a while since I have been on these forums (I haven't been on here since I used my Assassin223 account), so if I am posting this on the wrong thread I do sincerely apologize.
