The name is Markus Lappalainen. I am a Finnish composer and after several years of musical involvement I've begun composing with a professional aim since the beginning of 2014.
You will find my website and online portfolio at www.markuslappalainen.info.
The time I can dedicate varies from week to week depending of my work shifts. But as a guideline we speak of 4-10 hours a week.
Now I am looking forward to write something in the lines of Jeremy Soule (The Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim), Brad Derrick (The Elder Scrolls Online) and Inon Zur (Dragon Age: Origins). In genre terms we are moving around orchestral, ambient and world music. If required, an electric twist can be added to spice up the mix.
If the said musical field is not what you are going for, contact me anyway and we can discuss further.
It would be great if you already had some locked material for your game (visual, dialogue, character bios, story and such). It is always MUCH easier to write music to something that is almost ready. (By ready I do not mean the whole game.) Then the music can be fitting for the game's spirit and atmosphere.
It should be said that I am building my portfolio when it comes to orchestral music. You will find some samples in my portfolio, but is is not as comprehensive as I would like it to be. Also the sound quality is not up to date, which is the main purpose of this quest. I have moved on to a new software with very good sound quality. I no longer use sound fonts that have limited overtones that result a not so realistic timbre. Now the music I write for an orchestra actually sounds almost like a real one.
Those with no coin, don't worry, I am free for now. Those who have a coin or two to spare, I am still free but I am always more than glad of a donation. It would only mean better sounds faster.
So, will you help me on my quest for an updated and much better portfolio?
