For a variety of reasons due to the theme of my game, I've wanted to use Richard Wagner's four-part opera  'The Ring of the Nibelung' (you'd know it as the Ride of the Valkyries music, or the image of Bugs Bunny in a viking helmet) as my game's music.  There's such a variety of emotions and beats within the fifteen (!) hours of music in this opera, I thought I could grab enough free-use tracks from this to satisfy all of my game's needs. While I still very much believe this is possible, I'm increasingly convinced I'm not the person for the job. My skills are in art, plot and worldbuilding, not in audio editing or turning a piece of music into a loop. 


So here comes the ask. I would like 5+ looped tracks of between 45 seconds and 5 minutes each, consisting of:


1. A loop from the pastoral 'Prelude' , sounding sleepy and slow.


2. A fast-paced high-drama section at least 5 minutes long, suitable for a dramatic introductory cutscene. I'd suggest one of the many scenes with the giants Fafner and Fasolt, or Donner the Thunder God. 


3. Two or three loops of average-tempo music suitable for overworld background music.


4. One or more frantic loops suitable for battle music (Götterdämmerung Finale or scenes with Siegfried fighting might be good for this). 


There are plenty of resources for the license-free use of his music, like https://musopen.org/music/composer/richard-wagner/ , https://archive.org/details/audio?and[]=wagner&and[]=mediatype%3A%22audio%22&and[]=subject%3A%22Richard+Wagner%22 , http://www.wagnerheim.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=188 , http://www.loc.gov/jukebox/search/results?fq=take_composer_name%3AWagner%2C+Richard&page=1&q=wagner&referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.loc.gov%2Fjukebox%2F ,  or if you're ambitious, feel free to play it yourself. I'd prefer only-instrumental, but I will accept the vocals if you can loop them well.


This is a pretty significant request for a freebie, but I'm unemployed right now, and money is tight. I am trained in writing, and have 15+ years experience crafting plotlines, quests, interesting and consistent characters, that sort of thing. Furthermore, I have a college education in digital art. A few pieces of my spritework can be found here: 





I'd be more than happy to make some sort of a trade of services if that inspires someone to do this. Thanks!

This is too big of a request for this section. Because this section is meant for free requests, it should be limited to 1-2 small items - like, one song?


I'd suggest posting in Project Recruitment.

Got a 25 buck secret santa budget and managed to score 3 DVDs for 1,50 in total at the christmas market at university. I might need a handcart to transport the final result xD
