Hi! I’m Joshua McLean. I compose and produce custom music for games.
My goal for 2016 is 50 drafts of game music. I know 50/90 and FAWM tend to be more "song" (i.e. accompaniment + lyrics) oriented but I've always run against the grind for these events and turned it into more of a personal composition challenge.
I'm going to be conceptualizing a full video game and composing all the music for its key events and areas. I don't have any current plans to make any such game, but it'll give me a direction and a focus for those compositions. To keep things interesting, the plan is to split into six different target "sound setups," as follows: NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Modern Electronic, and Modern Orchestral.
I'm not sure how the split will go; it kind of depends on my (admittedly fickle) mood. The target will be 8 or 9 songs, since there are 6 possible categories. For the sake of my sanity, I'll be tracking them here.
5 Super NES
4 Sega Genesis
3 Game Boy
5 Modern Electronic
2 Modern Orchestral (i.e. not electronic)
22 accounted for
I look forward to hearing some great, inspiring music from my fellow 50/90ers. Good luck to everyone!
