    Hi! I'm a song-writer/composer who's trying to get his feet wet and develop an early portfolio for my music. I'm currently just starting off so I'm willing to write some free tracks for developers who are looking for something a little more different than the free online stuff. I'm still a bit of an amateur, but I can make a polished and unique sound. I'll link some of my works (electronic and instrumental) below. I can work with different vibes, but I'm probably best at 8-bit stuff as well as piano and string duets. I can work with string quartets and band stuff (not an ensemble, more of a rock band), but that takes a bit more time to organize. I've written for a couple of solo developers before and I'll paste links to the games I've worked on and their select songs.

    Obviously all the music I'll write will be registered with the copywriter office as soon as it's given to you so I'll have the ability to reuse tracks in further works other than your own. I will also have the ability to defend my music if you use a track I do not write for you (please just don't. Seriously). I will do my best to create and curate different feels and melodies for different people. Anyone who contacts me has to give me at least a paragraph description of the vibe and song they are working with (preferably more than three sentences, but you're not being graded haha) and give me a couple of song examples that match the tone you want. The better description you give me, the better chance I'll make something you like.

    At the moment, I'm very flexible with changing the songs I give you and am willing to have a conversation or two about the exact vibe you're looking for (especially if I mess it up once of twice). I will do my best to respond to any or all requests, but that's not always possible. My only two requirements are that I'm sited as the composer (credited properly for my music in game) and I'm allowed to post my music and cite your game on a blog post sometime in the future (if I decide to promote my material that way). I'm also willing to have a conversation about full soundtracks and other related inquiries.

    Obviously if you don't like anything I give you for your game, you are in no way obligated to use it.

    You can contact me at nedarb111@gmail.com

    And here are some of my works:



    8-Bit, Pop Electronic stuff:

    I mean I’ve gotten all of my work copywriten under my name, and I’ve given it a bit of thought. I just don’t know if anyone would be willing to purchase someone’s work if they don’t know who that person is or know where on earth I would sell any of this haha
