I'm a musician based out of Seattle, Washington and have been composing orchestral music for 25 years. I compose symphonic and electronic music and specialize in leitmotif composition. Strong thematic development and traditional orchestral colors characterize my style. I really enjoy working with creative people with great communication skills to make great art. I also mentor younger composers, so feel free to reach out if you're serious about composing for orchestra. You can find my work on YouTube, SoundCloud, Instagram, Twitter, Bandcamp and my web site.

My background is in computer science and non-Newtonian physics with a resume in corporate American of nearly 30 years. (Gotta pay the bills...) Yes, that means I'm a bit older than most of the developers here, but I still love to play a great RPG once in awhile - usually while enjoying a relaxing train ride home each night after work. I couldn't live without coffee, dark chocolate, popcorn, Mexican food and wine... ...especially wine. It's the little things...
If you're interested in collaborating on a project (or interested in having a mentor), send a PM or contact me via my web site at www.DavidListerComposer.com.
P.S. If you're a storyteller, but not familiar with the concept of leitmotif in music, you owe it to yourself to do a little research. It's a skill most composers lack (and is becoming increasingly absent in modern film and games), but it's the secret weapon of composers to tug at the heartstrings of the audience and to affect them in ways that make your story emotionally moving and memorable. It's what makes the scores to works like Star Wars, Total Recall, Final Fantasy, How to Train Your Dragon, etc. so compelling, classic and beloved. If your story demands it (and most RPG's do), take the time to find a composer that has the skill to tell your story musically using the power of structure and leitmotif. It's what moves us to tears at the end of E.T., The Empire Strikes Back and To The Moon. Thanks for listening...
