    Hello everyone!

    My name is Bryan Davis and I have a love for good games and great music! I work full time as a game composer, and love every minute of it. Music is something special, something magical. Whether we realize it or not, music has a huge impact on our attitudes and emotions. When someone is angry, often times they will listen to music that drives their anger even further. When at peace, many people will turn to soft strings or pianos to drift further into their blissful state. Sometimes, when people are having a bad day, they turn to uplifting and inspiring music to try and bring themselves out of the mire they’ve found themselves in. Our attitudes dictate the music we listen to and, in turn, the music we listen to dictates our emotions.

    Emotions, that is the role of music in video games. To create an emotional landscape for the player to dive into. As a composer, it is my job to create that atmosphere. To use my powers of audio manipulation to control the very emotions of every soul that plays your game (I feel so powerful!). Music is my passion, it’s what drives me as I journey through life. Here on this thread I'd like to share some of my music. I do hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing it. If you’d like to enlist my musical powers for your worthy cause (Gaming is a very worthy cause!), simply send me a message and tell me about your project. Most of my work is orchestral, but I do have a few chiptunes in my portfolio. If you don't hear what you're looking for, message me anyway. I love trying out new styles and am always looking for a new challenge to tackle! My rates vary depending on the project, but will usually fit any budget. So let's join forces, and together we shall conquer the world! Or…well…at least a small corner of the gaming world. Yes, that, we shall conquer!

    Just finished this track a few days ago for a game in development. This was one of those tracks that was a real pleasure to work on. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did writing it.

    Oh wow, an entire month with no updates to my soundcloud! Well, that's what Christmas will do to you. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas full of love, cheer, and lots of geeky things under the tree. Here's a battle theme for the upcoming game Coerulea: The Rebellion. It's time to heed the battle's call!

    Well, I finally got around to putting a new demo reel together, something that was long overdue. Listening to this, I realize just how far I've come in the last year. I moved from Utah back to my home state of Missouri, had the opportunity to work on a variety of different projects, and have made the leap to full time composition. It's really an exciting time in my life and I'm looking forward to seeing just how exciting this next year will be. Enjoy!

    Oh, have I done something wrong? I'm sure I got the correct format for my first post.

    Oh....that's what you meant. Yeah, I updated the demo reel in the OP when I posted that last week. Thanks for looking out for me, though. That was rather kind of you =)


    While I'm here, I'd like to share a new track I just uploaded. It's a nice, peaceful town theme for a game I'm currently working on.

    Last week I shared a nice peaceful town theme. Now it's time for a battle theme! This is an epic battle theme that could be used on just about any RPG. It's available for licensing, so contact me if you'd like to use it in your game! I'm also available for custom work, just send me a message!

    I called this "A Little Stroll" because that's basically what I did, stroll through the piano. I simply hit record and just started playing the piano, having no idea where I was going and no plan for what I was going to do. Once finished, I recorded the cello and violin in to match the piano. It was a fun little experiment that I think turned out quite well.

    Here's a simple little demo I wrote recently for a potential client. I didn't have anything truly "epic" yet, so I figured now was the time. I also had some new choral samples I hadn't used yet, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to bust them out! This track was SO FUN to write, and I look forward to doing more like it!

    Wow, almost an entire month with no new music! I'm almost having composition withdrawals! March was a crazy month with all sorts of personal things to deal with. So, naturally, music was put aside for a little while. But I'm back, and have some new tunes to share!

    I've also got time to take a few more commissions, so if you need some great music at an affordable rate, send me a message!

    Cave themes are always fun and can vary greatly from one game to the next. This was my take on the music of the caverns. This track is available for licensing. Contact me for info.

    Wow....so long already! This summer has had me super busy both in and out of the studio. Here's two tracks that I've recently completed. And I must say, I'm particularly happy with how these two tracks came out. I do hope you enjoy them!!!

    I had a lot of fun creating this track! It's for a character named Mira, who has a very fiery personality. So fire became the inspiration for this piece. I do hope you enjoy it!

    It's been too long since my last update!!! The last few months were absolutely crazy and I can't believe so much time has gone by. But I'm back, and I bring with me a new demo reel!!! This reel features some of my best work over the last six months. I always enjoy putting these reels together. The opportunity to look back and re-live each of these tracks is a wonderful thing. I do hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

    Immortal Warlords. The First Men. Agents of the Dark Emperor, their names are feared throughout the world. And they must be taken out at all costs.

    Everything has led to this one moment. You have climbed mountains and traversed valleys. You have crossed wide oceans and vast deserts. You have defeated every foe he has thrown in your path. And now, he descends from above. The power of a god in the embodiment of a man. Your hand tightens on the hilt of your sword as you prepare for this, the ultimate battle.

    Some call them odd. Others, strange. But there's one thing that is apparent to everyone who meets these simple little folk.....they're not very smart.
