Music for Games

2010-01-12 23:15:49 by MarkySpark

A BIG thankyou to newgrounds too! for being an awesome site.

Where to go from here? What direction? I want to make music for PC/Playstation/XBOX games and be involved in one of the greatest titles ever! Well it's been a dream of mine since I was making music on the Amiga and ST. If by any chance there is a software company out there that wants great music created to a deadline with pure dedication and passion, please message me.

It's been a good day today for selling music. I sold 4 albums which is great and I appreciate it very much. I will send my Depeche Mode cover version's album to the lovely buyers too. Thankyou to everyone for your interest in my music and if anyone needs my help, I am here to do what I can. My latest track was doing well and then the zero bomber came along, whoever you are you give zero's cause you are a zero. Yawn, he did it again today the sad little boy. I care not about your antics, I am here to help others not for my self satisfaction and glorification. I am looking forward to David Stanley finishing the Black Star series so I can finish the tunes I have done for him, the flash looks great. I have seen most of episode 1 and the voice acting is perfectly done and suits the characters very well. I am still composing for The Blood Throne which will be around in September and that is looking like a superb tower defence game. It's all part of the Power of 3 Summer Spectacular. I know I keep saying it but I can't wait to play the other games too, there are some great teams taking part. I feel honoured to be working with two great lads, Chris from Sacramento and Bes from The Nederlands. I am in the middle living in Lancashire England. Amazing technology these days lol I remember when there was just a few hundred thousand pages of txt on the internet as to billions now. Showing my age again, but I have had a good life experience and I hope it continues for many years to come. It would be nice to hear from a fellow musician or flash artist that wants to collaborate. Just ask as I love to create and want to compose new interesting tracks. Peace

The Blood Throne & Me

I can't wait to see and play all the games that are being made right now as part of the Power of Three. I am part of a good team that is making a great tower defence game. I can't really say much about it at the moment it's all a secret lol You can always check out my tracks from the game as demo's are on my page. The latest one is Enemy on the Horizon and I like all the The Blood Throne tracks I've created. I know Chris and Bes are working hard as I type to bring you an addictive game to play. I have one big duty to perform and that's the battle sequence music and at the moment I have "writers block" but i am sure it will pass. Not being a great musician it is hard for me to compose but I seem to be learning all the time and NG is a great place to get tips from great composers. I have never seen such an abundance of musical talent on any other site. I am very proud to be a member of the NG community and it feels like my second family. I wish upon wish that whoever it is that keeps zero bombing all my work on a daily basis would tell me why! So then I know what crime I have committed to do such a thing to me. My first instrument I played was the drums and I remember my cousin having a great set when I was little. Years later I started messing around with a piano and I loved it, always had one since and I adore my Yamaha Grand. I use Adobe Audition 3 when mastering as it is easy for me to use and has many great functions. Amazing really that when you get a keyboard it seems like all the tunes could be used in a techno track but as you get used to playing it turns to classical music. I can write a classical piece with piano and strings in no time at all, minutes even...but the bigger more complicated sound with strings , choir, timpany etc... takes me a lot longer. All my tracks are done in a day and I don't spend months just composing one composition, maybe I should and they would be much better. I am starting to ramble now... so... it's back to composing after I've had my King Prawns mmmmmmmmmmmmm Say hello and don't be shy as I am shy enough for both of us, whoever you are. Peace and Tranquility to everyone.


Who am I?

I am MarkySpark! Well my real name is Mark John D... for all the solicitors out there. That's me on the left with the pussycats. Why am I writing this I hear you ask. The main reason is my friend Ryan (Nietzlawe) keeps meantioning I should write something for all you lovely people who favourite my music. I am 42 now, and on NG that means you are a fossil but I'm 18 at heart and still love my games. I have an extensive collection of games from Amiga,Atari ST,Megadrive,SNES,Xbox games to the latest PC and PS3 titles. I never thought I would end up composing music for games but I always wanted to. I am using all my time making tunes and enjoying myself with friends. I live at the top of a hill in Clayton le Moors Accrington and can see for miles, I can even see your house from here. I love to play the piano as you guessed and love going to scenic places, prefferably to have a beer and a good time. That's all I can write at the moment, as I'm off to the shop in the village. Say hello anytime as I will always answer. No doubt Ryan will certainly do so and Robert will probably just say W00T!!! ..... Au Revoir!
