G'day!

The name is Markus Lappalainen and I am a Finnish composer. Since the beginning of 2014 I have pursued a professional career in music composition.

Please refer to the latest post for current up-dates.

Godspeed!

Orchestral, you say? I may be able to make something of this. Post something as an example first, though.

Hello, please add some links to your work as samples :D
'Tis done! A link to my portfolio is in my signature.

If you meant the London Symphony one, I haven't gotten around to play with the software too much. I can make an example song for display. What is wished?

Well....hm. Okay, for an example, how about a piece of battle music? Envision a dark, scarred battlefield, the player fighting a ferocious, very powerful demon, dark monoliths piercing the now-blood-red sky.

G'day Forum!

After a good long while it is good to be back. And it is good to be back in shape and have order in life! Cheers for that...  BD

While I've been gone I've rested and practiced my craft. I have vision and a burning desire to write something amazing. I am heading towards finishing a great sound track of quasi-ambient music for a sandbox platformer. I must say that I have no idea where the music for that album came from. It is just awesome! .. and beautiful at the same time!

I am looking forward to write something in the lines of Jeremy Soule (The Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim), Brad Derrick (The Elder Scrolls Online) and Inon Zur (Dragon Age: Origins). In genre terms we are moving around orchestral, ambient and world music. If required, an electric twist can be added to spice up the mix.

It would be great if you already had some locked material for your game (visual, dialogue, character bios and such). It is always MUCH easier to write music to something that is almost ready. (By ready I do not mean the whole game.) Then the music can be fitting for the game's spirit and atmosphere.

It should be said that I am building my portfolio when it comes to orchestral music. You will find some samples in my portfolio, but is is not as comprehensive as I would like it to be. Also the sound quality is not up to date, which is the main purpose of this quest. I have moved on to a new software with very good sound quality. I no longer use sound fonts that have limited overtones that result a not so realistic timbre. Now the music I write for an orchestra actually sounds almost like a real one.

Those with no coin, don't worry, I am free for now. Those who have a coin or two to spare, I am still free but I am always more than glad of a donation. It would only mean better sounds faster ;)

So, will you help me on my quest for an updated and much better portfolio?  B)

Have a happy day!

- Markus Lappalainen

That would be somewhat yes, depends of the production and urgency =) I have a couple of negotiations going on but no contracts are written yet. So tell me, what is up? You will reach me best at markus@markuslappalainen.info

Greetings!

After being enslaved at a construction yard for three months 12 hours a day, getting married, spending two weeks touring Italy and moving to Norway, it would be good to get back to some routines. I'm feeling a bit rusty but more than prepared to take on some gigs.

Not looking for anything specific.

The best way to contact me is via e-mail: markus@markuslappalainen.info or through my website behind the portfolio link. I will check this forum as often as I manage.

Before contacting me, please have as perfect of a list of music as possible. It is easier for me as a composer to commit to a project with an end goal in sight. If you don't know how many cues you want to have in the end, then just request them one at a time but bear in mind that they end up to the end of the request queue.

Thank you for your attention!

Have a happy day!  ;)
