    "We have selected Geoff to compose the entire Crown of Worlds OST, and could not be happier. He's an art director's dream, and responds well to detailed descriptions of emotions and imagery. We communicate like writers, rather than musicians, and his ability to speak cross-genre has been a lifesaver!"

    - Lydia Rivers, Creative Director, Prismatech Media Arts



    Hello!
    I'm a full time UK-based game composer with 5 years industry-specific experience and a number of Steam and Itch released game soundtracks under my belt, many of which started with an enquiry from this forum. I work online on a freelance contract basis, collaborating with game developers all over the world on projects large and small. If you're looking for a committed, creative and friendly game composer who is truly passionate about games and delivers high quality custom music on time, every time, drop me a message through my site or at info@geoffmoore.co.uk and tell me about your game!

    Formal training
    I hold a BA in Music Technology and Innovation from De Montfort University.

    Musical styles
    Honestly just about anything! Whether you need a rich fantasy theme, an epic orchestral battle/trailer track, a retro-inspired platformer theme, a lush post-apocalyptic piece or even a janky campfire ditty, rest assured I can craft the perfect sound to suit your game's atmosphere and tone. I love trying new things, so if you need an example in a specific genre just let me know.

    Technical ability
    I can provide smoothly looping, fully produced music (with play-once intros if required), and I can provide music-to-picture for timed cutscenes or trailers.

    If required I can create adaptive soundtracks with multiple layers (as in Goblin Pest Control by MantraTeam, where I created four separate interplaying musical layers for the battle phase that trigger based on the different enemy troops currently in play to reflect the current threat level). I'm also a hobbyist game dev, which helps me better understand your technical needs.

    I'm able to create a soundtrack from start to finish, demoing ideas, composing, performing and recording the music, then mixing and mastering audio files ready to trigger in-game. Of course if you'd like me to collaborate with other audio professionals I'm happy to do so, but if you're looking for a one-stop music solution I'm willing and able to fill all required roles. All the pieces in my portfolio were composed, performed and produced entirely by me.

    Experience
    Steam released game soundtracks:

    Itch released game soundtracks:


    Compensation
    My rates vary depending on your needs and the style of music, but I keep it reasonable (most of my clients are indie developers, and I know budgets can be tight!) We'll agree a per minute rate and a project pace that suits your budget. I include revisions free of charge, so you can budget precisely and you never have to worry about unexpected costs. I accept payments by Paypal or bank transfer and I provide invoices for your records.

    Terms
    Highly flexible to suit your budget and needs. I can provide and clearly explain various licensing and exclusivity options. We can negotiate a soundtrack rights split or you can keep all rights yourself. When we talk I'll explain the options available and provide you with clear terms in plain English.

    The first step
    Email me at info@geoffmoore.co.uk for a no obligation mini-consult and quote. If it seems like I'm a good fit and you're happy with the quote, I'll provide a free demo specifically tailored to your game!

    Exciting news - I've been hired as main composer for the upcoming romantic visual novel Starlight Vega! The game is beautiful and has built up quite a fan following already (enough to smash its Kickstarter to get funded 600% of it's target!), so needless to say it's awesome to be a part of it. Here's my first track for the project:



    I'm still able to take on another customer or two at the moment, so feel free to get in touch here or at enquire@geoffmoore.co.uk :)

    Complete site redesign and new game!

    Hi all! I've been lying low while working on my entry for the month-long indie game contest IGMC 2015, A Stranger Comes To Shore. If you'd like to check the game out, head over to my website. I've also done a complete site redesign, so you can find my commission work, licensable tracks and games more easily. If you don't have time to play, here's a track from the game's intro:



    I'm currently able to take on new projects, so don't hesitate to get in touch!

    Just posted two new tracks for upcoming Tiny Goblin Productions RPG The Book Of Shadows on my SoundCloud!

    Also received an awesome testimonial from Ernani Rocha of Turtles Of Destiny:

    "Geoff is a highly skilled musician, but that's not all. What makes him a unique composer is his ability to understand and capture the spirit of your project and translate those qualities into magical notes."
    - Ernani Rocha

    I'm available for work, so feel free to get in touch!

    Hi all, I'd like to share two new licensable tracks! Contact me if you'd like to use one in your project. Looping versions available on request.

    First a band piece with a western 'road trip' feel:
    Listen to Moving On on SoundCloud.

    And an atmospheric piano piece:

    I'm ready to take on a new soundtrack project, so get in touch if you'd like it to be yours, and thanks for listening!

    It's been a while! I've just finished a couple of soundtrack projects so I'm finally available for work. I've also had a major sound upgrade, and a shiny new website with a bunch of new tracks to listen to:
