Every single time I attempt a collaboration on this forum, it either goes nowhere or down in flames...I don't know why I keep punishing myself. ^^;;; I dunno, I think I just feel more comfortable making/answering these kinds of offers on a forum. You feel more like you're vaguely acquainted with people, y'know?
Anyway, let's get to the point: I'm in this mostly to find a lyricist to work with. Even if it's just once, on one song. ^^ I do enjoy making VGM/BGMs, but recently I've had this itch to make an original song that actually has words and isn't just a remix of someone else's song.
Remixes are mostly what I've done so far-- specifically, remixes of Vocaloid songs. Although I am open to musical genres outside of J-pop...with me, pretty much anything goes, I like all kinds of music. ^^
The only thing I will not do is orchestral-type stuff, and only because I don't have the software/skill for that. A soft guitar/piano accompaniment is about the best I can do in that genre; if you're looking for something like a string quartet or anything more complicated than that, I advise you to keep looking. Or maybe hit me up again in about 3 years. ^^;
Conversely: if you want a song set to music and produced for your novel/webcomic/indie animation or what-have-you, I'd be open to a sort of commission, on the grounds that I retain the rights to the song itself. You can use it wherever, but regardless of what happens with your project, I'm the one who gets to sell it.
What I can provide: Instrumentals in various styles/genres (Pop/Rap/Rock a specialty~) AND a selection of virtual singers in English (female only) or Japanese.
What I expect: LYRICS (nothing unsafe for work, please)
Also, you should be prepared for a little back-and-forth correspondence: making music may not take as long as other artforms, but it's still a complex process. And if you intend to 'commission' me to make something representative of your story, I'll definitely need feedback from you at some point.
Other stuff you should know:
-A produced song will most likely end up on my music channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo6tDTz93g1FajESdfW0Vug), probably with some cute character art and lyrics. ^^
-You'll be credited as a collaborator and entitled to a percentage of sales. At this moment in time, any music I produce with vocals is not available for sale, but that may change in the future.
-At this moment in time, I've never sold any of my music, so don't get your hopes up. ^^; I'm only talking about money as a formality; I expect for this to be an unpaid thing on all sides of the equation.
-If in the future this topic is closed, you can still contact me at email@example.com with inquiries. Or, y'know, DM me.
And now, without further ado, some samples of my remix work. You can browse through my music channel if you want (I can't stop you) but these are the compositions that I think are most deserving of your attention:
