The power of music in video games
The experience of playing a well-crafted video game can be an ethereal experience. Great games immerse the player into a new world by stimulating their senses—sight, sound, and sometimes touch. The power of music in video games, therefore, cannot be overlooked. The player can detect, either consciously or subconsciously, when the music and the game don't work well together. Because of this, the production of the music in a video game must be closely tied with the production of the game itself.
Music production for your video game
My name is Roger Pollard, and I specialize in music production for video games. I started writing music when I was 10 years old. My love for music is rooted in my love for some of the video game world's most classic soundtracks. At an early age, I transcribed music from my favorite Nintendo games and started writing my own piano music. For the last ten years, I have been writing and recording music for my YouTube channel. More recently, I have started focusing on my dream of writing music for original video game projects.
My deep love for meaningful music fuels every professional music production I make, and I make sincere and diligent effort to represent both the project and myself in the best way possible. When I commit to making music for a video game project, I commit to making the music fit as perfectly as possible with the aesthetic experience that the game offers. After direct consulting, we can decide together if my work would be a good fit for your game.
Game development and music production grow together
Ideas for video game music are developed similarly to ideas for games themselves. Since the feeling of the music should be closely tied with the feeling of the game, things go best when the music production is given time to grow and adapt to the concepts present in the story, world, and aesthetics of the game. Therefore, the earlier collaboration is established between the game development and music production, the better. However, this is not a necessary requirement for making great music for your game.
Trailers, previews, and other video production needs
Some of the most influential music can be contained in the previews or trailers for your game. The best videos combine quality music with well-edited gameplay footage. With 10 years of video editing experience, I use professional video production tools to combine original music with selections from your chosen footage to make a cohesive video that shows the player what they can experience in your game. With music and video working together—made with each other in mind—your video game trailer or preview can be a powerful tool in introducing your game to a new market.
