Another offer to assist

#1 Post by Thursdaybloom » Tue Sep 29, 2009 11:26 am

Hi team.

I just signed up earlier to post a support query and mentioned in the thread that I wish I knew coding/programming so I could contribute... which got me thinking about audio for the game. I'm a Music Tech student currently who loves designing ambient soundscapes/soundtrack music so I'd like to contribute whatever time/resources I can offer.

There's a lot of topics in the section - and I didn't go through all of them - but it seems like there's random people making random offers and submissions. Is there a dedicated audio team or teams (music and sound)?

Either way, if you need someone else then count me in. If not, then good luck guys. Great project.

The audio team is in a bit of a mess right now, since from what I can see, nobody has shown enough dedication and skill to become the audio lead since LithiumMongoose disappeared off the face of the earth.

In other words: yes, more audio contributers would be greatly appreciated.

I believe metaphysician has shown both, unfortunately his time is limited.

I second this, more contributors are always good. I think we are mostly covered with sound effects for now, so contributors should focus on music.

Music is definitely my 'thing' as opposed to sound effects so this sounds good.

Thanks pd. I've been lurking here a bit lately and read that post already. I agree with what Geoff said. My personal opinion is to have race-specific audio themes, but since races seem to be a while off I haven't started a discussion topic about it yet. I think if we have a collective of musicians/producers and a collective of final races we could dedicate teams to work on race-specific music. Not sure how soon all this will come about though.

I'm been visually developing a race for a while in preparation of ship designs. I'm not quite finished yet, but maybe it inspires a little :) The images are scattered throughout the thread.
