To be a Music Composer for SMG2.5 you'll need several things.

- A music sequencing program (FL Studio, Cakewalk, Cubase, etc.)
- Good, realistic orchestra sound samples
~ A free download of good samples can be found here: http://ul.to/ruqqlhx4/EWQLOrc.part1.rar These come with their own VST plugin. Find out what a VST plugin is before even downloading these, as the >500MB of sounds will be useless if you do not know how to use them.
- Understanding of basic composition technique AND the style of the Mario Galaxy games' music

If you are seriously considering being a composer for 2.5, you pretty much HAVE to have all of those things. And all of it is free, unless you want to buy a top-notch sequencing program.

It is incredibly important to consider the style of SMG's music when composing for 2.5. The Dark Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, etc. all have great music, but they don't fit Mario Galaxy. Similarly, something like rap or dubstep doesn't fit. Mario Galaxy's soundtrack can be for the most part described as big orchestral, but not HUGE orchestral. Try not to think of SMG music as 'epic' because that all too often brings up patterns of ominous, dark pieces with prominent baselines.

Examples: BowieZ's 'Driftwood Galaxy'
BowieZ's 'Starship Mario'
Blaz's 'Radiant Moon Galaxy'
Blaz's 'Grasslands Galaxy'
My Agent000's 'Monstrous Being'
Zommy08's 'Lightning-Speed Sprint'

Sticking to a true Galaxy style is key for this project, and music is no exception. Following one basic rule could help: BIG, but not LOUD. And by LOUD, I mean obnoxiously noisy. While this may work for movies, it does not work with a Mario game. If you for some reason need some movie-music inspiration, I suggest this: think something driving but light like Back to the Future, not booming and ominous like Batman or Inception. (Basically, don't try to replicate Hans Zimmer :P). A possible exception may be boss battle music, though even in these cases I would strongly advise retaining the SMG style.

Examples: BowieZ's 'Atomic Clock Galaxy'
My (Agent000's) 'Lonely Grotto'
My (Agent000's) 'Latency'
My (Agent000's) 'Ancient Mechanisms'
My (Agent000's) 'Playful Spirits'

As NWPlayer123 said in a most likely inspiring voice with a slight English accent so as to make it that much more epic, "Composing is like writing an essay. It's perfectly fine to incorporate your voice or style, but going off-topic from what you're discussing is just a ramble."

Of course, this is all referring to the big galaxy themes. Minigame music, minor-galaxy music, etc follows a different set of rules. These are less likely to be big, full orchestras. Small ensembles may well work for some themes (think of Freezy Flake Galaxy in SMG2 for example.) Synthesized or electronic music is occasionally used in the SMG games, like in Toy Time Galaxy or Spin-Dig Galaxy. (My personal favorite type of music in the games is the mixtures of orchestral and electronic, like in the Purple Coin theme or Fleet Glide Galaxy. But I suppose those fit better under the previous category.)

On that note (:P), post applications for Composer jobs here!

IMPORTANT: You will only be seriously considered if you have AT LEAST one piece of music to show for yourself. The more the better. Creating music geared for a specific galaxy or scenario would also be greatly appreciated.

Well, the title 'level creator' should appear under my nick I reckon, but it doesn't. Not that it bothers me a lot but I just wanted to point it out.

Now it does. ;)


'Composer'? :3

:P
