    Inspirational

    I really like your stuff. It's the kind of music that could inspire game developers to make certain levels and moods because of the music. I instantly start to think what a game would look like that is using the music, and just as it should be, it is tunes that sticks in your head instantly. Very nice indeed. :)

    Staffan Melin has produced all music for our three latest games (Fairy Treasure, Hexalot and Word Emperor). It is always easy to work with him and he is very responsible and professional in everything he does. We actually think he is one of the very best musicians "available" for the casual market, so I highly recommend you to hire him if you need some great music for your game.

    Please download any of our games to get some idea about what high quality music he can create (all music is available as external OGG or MO3 files in the game map).

    hey!

    I just realised I never update my site with new demo material, because I rarely have time to write music "for fun".

    Anyway, I recently took the time to write an ambient/experimental piece and added it to my site.

    nice

    Melin! What's up, sir. Just listened to Lost and I dig it. If I had to choose a character from the TV show Lost to go with the song, I would choose Juliette.

    Always good to hear new Melin goodness. Keep in touch.

    nice

    Right on! Congratulations. Can't say I'm going to go buy the game... I have this thing about carrying small pink boxes with horses on them. That's just me!

    I'm curious, though. Did you do field recordings of horses for the sfx? I don't recognize the horse sounds from the vid on the site.

    The real question for you Staffan is this: Who is YOUR Perfect Pony? ;)

    Grats again.

    Hey!

    Just wanted to say that the game Sally's Salon has been the topping the real arcade list for weeks now and I did the soundtrack and sound effects for it. Hope you'll like it!

    no it wasn't. I just had some free-time for once, and decided to whip something together. That song was made with old samples though, before I got ewqlso gold.

    Remarkable portfolio, Melin. Your skill is finely honed and razor-sharp.

    Melin did a couple of tracks for my upcoming game, and I have to say his work was quickly done and of an excellent quality. I highly recommend him.

    Okay so here's the deal. I haven't been around much in the indie scene lately, but I want that to change. I've heard less and less from you guys, and even though I've had the opportunity to write music for Nintendo DS games such as "Pony Friends" (Eidos Interactive) and "Sally's Salon" (Games Café/Real Arcade) I still miss writing for indie games.

    When I was more active here, I probably scored a game or two a month, but lately I'm happy to even receive an email a month. Let's change that, shall we? =)

    Looking forward to become a more active member of this indie community again.

    The music for Jewel Charm

    Melin made the beautiful music for our latest game Jewel Charm, http://www.jewelcharmgame.com/

    We've worked with him several times before, and the quality of his work never stops surprising us! He's fast and very easy to work with. We highly recommend his services to every developer out there!

    Updates

    Hi,

    I've been aiming for a summer with as low work load as possible due to other plans. However, those plans recently got cancelled, and now I've got all this time to compose music.

    So, I've got a few slots for soundtracks if you're interested. Shoot me an email or a PM with your project, and we'll be rolling.

    Cheers,

    Staffan Melin

    Hey!

    Major bump here. I've been busy for a long time now, working on just a few bigger projects. But now I'd really like to start working with you guys again. I've been working on soundtracks for indie games for 9 years, and have been working with companies from Eidos to Retro64, to small one man companies. I can work in any format, including Nintendo DS games, xm, mod, mp3 and ogg.

    10+ of games with my soundtracks have been no1 on both bigfish and realarcade for a long time, and hey, not every composer here has written a soundtrack for a game that Megan Fox got addicted to (Sally's Spa).

    Just send me a brief description of your project and I'll send you a no obligation quote. I work fast and am very easy to work with.

    Oh, and all of you who do not want me to work on your project, feel free to send me lots of money anyway, and you'll have my word I won't send even a second of my music to you ;)

    PS. While I'm working on getting my email melin@melinmusic.com back on track, send a copy to staffan.melin@require.se just to make sure.

    Cheers,
    Staffan Melin
