Musicians/Composers/Songwriters Wanted

Yeah, try as I might I could not think of a witty title for that. Oh well, simple is best!

Through the auditioning it has come to my attention that we have a few singers in our cast. It would be such a shame if that aspect of their lovely voices was not used…

There is a party in Forbidden Love but sadly it is without music. What we need is a couple of fireside songs for the Forsworn, nothing complicated. Think along the lines of the normal tavern songs or those of any game. A lively but one-instrument ditty relating to the Forsworn. Maybe it could be about ridiculing Ulfric, the Old Ones the Forsworn worship (Ancient Nord gods, the animal symbols throughout Nordic ruins are their avatars), falling in love, mishaps or just about waking up in the wilds. Or how on earth these people wash and don’t smell atrocious.
Anything lyric-less suitable for looping subtly in the background would also be fantastic.

Go wild! If you’re not a musician feel free to submit something anyway, we could fit the lyrics to a vanilla tavern song if that’s extractable or even to a tune somebody else composes. Submit to skyrimromance@outlook.com

Do any of you know somebody who does this kind of thing, for free? If so, let us know!

Quality is paramount for any music recordings, I don’t think our voice actors have drums or maracas at hand to record with even if it’s just to the tune of humpty dumpty… Who knows, if we get a big enough response maybe we could hold a little contest…

    I’m still avalible. I’ve been waiting for a reply email on the writing too. But I’m guessing everyone has just been busy.

    I’m working on a collection of songs for the game if interested. I’m an aspiring composer so I won’t charge or anything. I just need to get out there 🙂 sending one of my works to you guys in a few minutes. I’m in college for music composition right now so I’m busy but I have composition lessons here anyway so I just put in extra time for writing music for fun as well as the work I need to get done for college.

    You might want to consider taking a look at Adrian von Ziegler on YouTube. His terms for using his music is the following:

    “Everyone is free to use my music if credits are given. Exceptions are if you want to use my music in something with commercial purpose because you can get into trouble with GEMA if there is no written permission from me, it already happened several times and people even got sued by GEMA without even my knowledge. So that’s why you MUST request a written permission from me if your project is commercial, for your own safety. But as far as YouTube goes you can use my music for free even if you monetize your videos, just give credits and you can use any song you want.”

    Another suggestion is Incompetech; it’s a brilliant website with a lot of royalty-free music.

    I hope this helps!

    Hey there, just letting you know I haven’t given up, I have a little ditty I suppose that would work to loop and some lyrics that could be sung at the campfire. I guess the idea behind the song is maybe dumb considering I have no idea what you all have cooked up lore-wise, but I was thinking about the whole “Sparrow” thing, and I then the song came to me. If you don’t want to use it I will completely understand, I feel good about it either way. I’m going to work on adding some chords to go with it, right now it is just the melody and some words, like one stanza and a chorus…yeah, I know…anywhoosers, like I mentioned before, I need to get my equipment working, I haven’t used it much so I’m new to it still and I do not have access to a recording studio (as far as I know, but I could ask some of my theater buddies if they’ve got connections lol). So that wraps that up I guess, I’ll let you know when I have something to send, but I just wanted to let you all know I am still working on it! Keep going you guys, even if you finish before me! 😛

    I would be honored to help out, I’ve never really done anything like this, but if it helps you and the team in anyway, I’d like to help. I’m not much of a songwriter (amateur really, but I’ve taken some classes, and I did write a song a few years ago while I was playing Skyrim though it has nothing to do with Skyrim really.) I think I had some recording equipment, I’ll try and dig it out and if you like it you can use it. I do sing stuff to and I don’t care for recognition, I’d just like to help out if I can.
