My name is Christopher Norby, I am a composer working on a PhD at the University of Ulster, Magee Campus, Derry. I am seeking to write music for video games, and simply cannot find any opportunities. I would love to write music for any game project. I can compose/orchestrate and conduct live orchestral music or produce synthetic orchestral music and electronic music. I have worked on a student project of developing an online game before which didn’t quite get off the ground… but I did write music for it and have some music samples at http://www.myspace.com/christophernorby. I’d love to work on something and just love collaborating with people, so if anybody’s up for just get in touch!
I’m sure there’ll be some sort of payment – but given the short length of time to complete, they may require experience etc.
Claire Fitch on the boards ( fitchsounds.com ) might be able to give you some advice also on what software that most game studios use etc. Claire made some excellent music for a serious games project we developed recently.
