    Hello everyone.

    As Trudy's Mechanicals exits its pre-production phase, we'd like to open the doors for a talented composer to join our team!

    We're interested in creating a distinct soundtrack that complements the game's dark tone, loosely Slavic setting, and Steampunk aesthetic. Accordingly, the composer shouldn't feel afraid to break away from the military marches, triumphant horns, and soaring string sections that are typical of the tactics genre.

    We want someone who can tap into the cultural aspects of the setting using accordions, balalaikas, fiddles, and tambourines in rhythmic and chaotic musical forms. Steampunk itself also provides a wonderful backdrop that can be used for texture and rhythm, e.g., whistling pipes, chattering typewriters, pumping piston, winding clockwork, etc., and we'd love to use such samples to enhance the overall atmosphere.

    Trudy will require a wide variety of musical themes for characters, areas, story elements, and battle themes, and we'd like someone to take an active and creative part in that production. If you're interested in the project, please visit our site to apply.

    Thanks for your time!

    Music Composer Deeply Interested

    Hello

    I saw your post is from february 2015, though you might still need a composer. I checked out Trudy's Mechanicals, I have to say that I felt related to its incredible artwork. I am a big fan of robotic style characters and the style of animation I found on the internet about Trudy's. Great character development.

    I am CEO and Composer at Elements Music Production a starting company dedicated to produce original music for Film, Video Games and Media. We are a groups of composer collaborating to deliver HQ music for each unique project. Thanks to our network we are able to deliver a variety of genres and musical tones as needed, always keeping in mind our clients needs and expectations towards its users.

    Thanks for your time.

    Andy here,

    I love your description of the musical style you are going for here. I have another project that is just finishing up and would love to be your music guy if you still need one.

    My website has my demo reel front and center: http://gamecomposer.webs.com/

    Hi everyone, just wanted to post a response saying that our long search for a composer has finally come to an end!

    Thanks for all the responses, and apologies if we didn't personally get back to you; we received well over 400 submissions, and it took a while to sort through all of them. Rest assured we checked out every submitted portfolio and bookmarked the impressive ones for future reference.

    Thanks again for everyone's interest!
