Hire Freelance Video Game Composers Online

Video Game music composers are musicians who compose an original piece of music, either vocal or instrumental to be featured in a video game. They create all the background music that plays throughout the game and direct how music will be used in the game.

What Do Freelance Video Game Composers Do?

On a typical day, a video game music composer goes through the game specs and determines what music needs to go where. They will watch the game to see what’s happening onscreen and create music that brings up the appropriate emotions to match the situation. Besides this, game music composers also conduct extensive research to seek market trends and incorporate them into their music compositions.

A freelance video game music composer composes different kind of game music, such as extra-diegetic music - music that is added to a scene purely to enhance the emotions that the player should be feeling. A freelance video game music composer may also provide other services such as project management, sound design and editing, voice directing, implementation and general consulting. A freelance video game music composer works in tandem with video game designers and developers. Game designers design the structure of the game and develop its layout whereas game developers are professionals who write code for games for a variety of platforms.

You can find freelance video game music composers through a freelance marketplace company like Guru.
