Stratkat contacted me for some collaborate help regarding a dark-epic game-style orchestral piece for a project he's working on, so I was thrilled to have a chance to work on something fun and relaxing like this (yes, epic music is very fun and relaxing to write). From his chord progression and inspired by his basic sketch, I created this piece- building something that would transcend into a very powerful phase as needed by the film project.

If you have any comments on the piece, feel free to share them, I love feedback and interpretations of all sorts. :)

Also, Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas everyone! :D


do you take request? if so! proceed.


The Theme is ninja with mix of metalgear song by Harry Gregson-Williams ''Metal Gear Solid'' Main Theme Son of Liberty
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kZ5Ti Sl2d8 I need the Beginning to be like that and the entire song like it. if you can come close enough I will Credit and if possible i will share Revenue Shares from flash ads upon, about a month of the flash animation Release Date Make a couple of demos before full, i will be very picky.

I won't be able to start the animation without it but i will give a short Private link to the character so you can get a feel for it upon request. the character Name is Toonyfatninja He is a ninja and mascot of Destiny Arts Studios He will Start in a series of animated stories. here a Demo Picture link to it http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/de stinyartsstudios/toonyf atninja-illustration-1?context=rating s:etm.user:4162161.scou ted:.offset:5 not final. the whole animation could take over a year or more sense i,m working on it my self so you will have to be patiant if you like to see it, or if the world would like to see it.

A quick note on the theme it going to be a trailer and if you can make a second one for the Actual Series
must be about the same length of the metal gear which is about 4min.

metal gear

if you follow it close to the metal gear song that would be a Super Plus for you.

Hey man, I heavily recommend you check out this tutorial guide about choosing the right audio and working with a composer. Although it's designed more for game developers, the same applies to animators.


Note that I do not do "arrangements" of songs under copyright unless I am asked to do so by someone who holds the copyright or doesn't mind paying for it to be waived. I HEAVILY urge you to re-consider your stance that the music needs to be like existing music. If you like existing music so much, why not use it? Is it that you cannot afford to pay for the rights to be waived? Well, then you will need to work with composers who will create new, unique pieces- that is the cold, hard reality of the music industry. If you find a composer willing to sell his/her soul and make a copy of a song for you, congratulations. However, it will be just that- a boring, uninspiring copy by some random composer somewhere of some song too many people know.

After reading the above linked tutorial in full, if you decide you want original, unique, custom music and are willing to pay for it, I would be more than thrilled and honored to hook you up. Send me a PM involving the steps shown in "Part 5: How to Explain Your Ideas". :)


Great! I could use someone like you to help me with my RPG game. It's very stressful to find musicians and they don't respond after a week or two D:

samulis responds:

It depends... I'm rather busy right now. If you can PM me some details on the game, what kind of music, if there is payment and how much, how much music, etc, I might be able to help out a little.

Keep at this man, you are very talented. I would love to hear more pieces like this from you samulis!

samulis responds:

Thanks for the listen, I hope to keep writing pieces like this. :D

Wow this is really good
keep it up

samulis responds:

Thanks! I plan to. :)

Samulis...man!!! Where do you get such beautiful and hit ideas from? Yes I second JosephAS1. More catchy from 0:45 and onwards. Yes, whole piece is great as always, awesome, as always!

samulis responds:

My ideas come from three years of trying to write better and better- practice and understanding of orchestration through practical experience. The style of this music is easy to understand once you know the feel well enough... I can practically write this sort of thing in my sleep I have written it enough. With several years of composing, you too will be the same if you wish it.
