Lorien - A video game music composer

Hi
I will start with a short presentation :

My name is Lorien, I'm a 25 years old musician from France, I dream of becoming a composer of music with images, especially for video games,
To make my dream come true I work hard every day and I regularly post songs on my soundcloud and on my Youtube channel.
I get very good feedback on my work, which encourages me to promote myself, share my work and offer my services.

Here is a link to listen to my work:

My compositions for video games:
I also make Trailers with my music to illustrate my compositions:

An example with the game Ori and The Will of the Wisp :


An example with the game Sable :


An example with the game Little Nightmares II :



My site: https://www.lorien-compositeur.com

Don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in my services for your project,

Thank you very much for your time and attention,

Regards,

Lorien,

That's amazing! What program do you use to make the music, and have you ever found it hard to make any pieces?

Wow, your work is fantastic. I can imagine your music fitting perfectly into games. Also, great work on the trailers, really artistic! What do you use for your videos? They are very professional looking!

Thank you !
I use Ableton Live to compose,
And for the level of the difficulty of the pieces I compose, I impose to myself the composition of one work per week, so depending on the chosen title I can have a little more difficulty to compose, in general the more we are in the fantastic field the more I feel comfortable to compose :D

I use Ableton Live to compose directly in the image of the trailers on my software !
I would love to be able to hear my music in a video game someday... 😅

You are definitely going the right way about it. Signing up to places like JoyFreak who offer game developers the chance to showcase their work is a great opportunity for you. Someone is bound to find your work and hire you. They'd be crazy not to, your work is fantastic!

You should be on Envato. There are lot of composers who are there selling their stuff.
I didn't know this site, but many other similar sites offer this kind of services, for the moment I'm not convinced, it's not my vision of composition and music, with these services we're in the fast food type of consumption of music, I'd rather make a custom work for a project and put all my heart and sensibility into it so that the project is great and tailor-made than compose generic music that anyone can use for anything, I might have to go through that and I might change my mind, but for the moment I still dream of having a global budget for the realization of a complete OST on a game from A to Z, that's really what would make me vibrate...

Thank you it makes my heart warm to receive all these compliments, I hope with all my heart that it will happen like that too!
It's so difficult to be known, I don't have the marketing vibe, after 6 months of intensive production and composition with 34 tracks
I'm still on 40 subscribers on Youtube... I have a lot of progress to make on this one again, what will convince the developers is the quality of my work of course but also my ability to generate numerous and regular listenings !

I honestly never really payed any attention to the people who produce the music.
It's normal, it depends a lot on the relationship you have with music in general, but it's completely standard, a video game is sold as a whole, you buy a video game for the gameplay, the graphics, the music, the universe etc, I have no idea who the graphic designers are working on such and such a game, just like all the people needed to make a movie,
Of course there are exceptions and there are some very famous composers, but you don't seek popularity by becoming a video game composer, Just to create music that will give a unique identity to the game and that players will remember is one of the main challenges for composers
It must be so exhilarating to be able to create that !

That's a very impressive list, great work so far and keep wishing you the best in your future projects :)
Motivating, keep up the good work!
Thank you very much for all the encouragement !

I think the site is worth it if you have unsold work or if you want to just audio file upload once and earn from license. Thats the good part of envato.

Yes, that's exactly it, for a player to make the effort to look for the music of a video game on Internet, it must really be outstanding and by its quality and its role in the game, we are more on a case by case basis, rather than on the name of a composer who would be enough to sell a game !

I think the site is worth it if you have unsold work or if you want to just audio file upload once and earn from license. Thats the good part of envato.
I will inquire little by little on this, it's true that my current works could lend themselves to this kind of site, I will inquire on their functioning and I will see if I adhere to their principle, thank you for the advice in any case!

I think you can join the enavto and check their official forums. This way you'd understand if it's even worth to keep the content there because some may or may not like the license model etc. So have to read on that part.
 

Lorien

Yes I'll find out about this site, I also have to look at its competitors because there are a multitude of sites that offer the same concept, you'll have to spend a lot of time comparing all that !

My new composition of the week on the game trailer: Sky - Children of the Light :
Don't hesitate to give me your feedback on this track !
Have you already tested the game ? It's crazy to think it's a mobile game...

Thank for listening,

Really good soundtrack. Reminds me of Miyazaki's Ghibli studio kind of feel in the background. Also the game seems to have decent graphics too. All the best for your success on the soundtrack.

Thank you very much, I'm glad you liked my piece! I'm not the official composer of the games though, I use trailers as a portfolio to show my work!

Yeah I figured that you are not developer of the content. I was referring to the audio used in the AV clips. It is a good content from your side.

Thank you very much !

My new composition for Hollow Knight SilkSong :
I waited a bit before buying Hollow Knight, but it was such a revelation and a great game on all aspects that I'm going to take day 1 the sequel which should be out soon !

Don't hesitate to give me your opinion !
Good evening ! 😄

Thank you very much ! It's very nice to read this !

I would love to be able to compose a whole soundtrack with my music, to be able to work in depth and express everything I can musically, it must be such a wonderful feeling to play a video game with your music inside... I hope one day... 😅
 

Lorien

What kinda game would you make it for?
There's some interesting work and a personal touch to bring to each game, but if I had to say one like that, it would be all the games with fantastic DA and atmosphere, Ori or Hollow Knight are good examples !

My new composition for the trailer of the video game Dordogne which will be released in 2021 and which is in competition for the Game's Cup in the Boss category :



The game is gorgeous, it's nice to see French publishers going out of their way to offer innovative games,
The Art Direction is amazing, it really makes you want to have access to the game, 2021.. it's going to be far...
You can support the project by voting for them at the Game's Cup if you want to give them a hand !

Here's the pitch:

Dordogne is a narrative adventure game in which you play as Mimi, a 32-year-old woman visiting the house of her recently deceased grandmother. As a souvenir of the childhood summers Mimi spent with her in Dordogne, her grandmother left her letters and puzzles to solve, to remind her to make the most out of life.

My new composition for the trailer of Nier Reincarnation :



Nier in mobile version, I don't really know what it's going to look like...I'm a bit apprehensive, especially since there's going to be stories of micro transactions in the game, what do you think about it ? :D

But I'm looking forward to the release of Nier Replicant! :eek:

My new composition for the trailer of Spiritfarer :



Spiritfarer - A cozy management game about dying.

Play as Stella, ferrymaster to the deceased, a Spiritfarer. Build a boat to explore the world, then befriend and care for spirits before finally releasing them into the afterlife.

Experience moving, emotional stories filled with unforgettable moments. Spend relaxing quality time with your spirit passengers, create lasting memories, and, ultimately, learn how to say goodbye to your cherished friends. What will you leave behind?

The game looks interesting and original but it's the kind of game that makes you want to cry every time a spirit leaves... ... :eek:

You are super talented man. It's impressive. I'm french to but i'll keep talking in english in this forum. I'm a game dev and i can tell your music is really good. I will release a new game soon and i will need more musics, but i need electro/synthwave music. Too bad you don't seem to do this style I would have liked to work with you.

Thanks a lot, it's heartwarming to see that you appreciate my songs, I'm interested in your game, if you want to tell me more we can maybe make a try for synthwave or electro, I'm not closed in terms of musical style, and I haven't posted all my songs on my soundcloud ! You can mp me if you want my discord for example to talk a little bit ! Let me know, Have a nice day !

My new composition for the game Story of Seasons : Friend of Mineral Town



I've always been a fan of the Harvest Moon license as a kid, so when I saw that a remake of Mineral Town released in 2003 was about to come out, I had to compose music for that release... :)

Now the Harvest Moon license is not at all what it used to be, but the old devs have taken over with the Story of Seasons license which is much more faithful to what the license used to be, I highly recommend it, it's an excellent farm management game, quiet and exotic. :love:

My new composition for the trailer of The Gardens Between :



The Gardens Between is a surreal adventure / puzzle game that follows Arina and Frendt, two faithful friends who find themselves in a mysterious world composed of beautiful garden islands.

Have you already tested the game? It's always restful and relaxing this type of game in general, but it's important that the difficulty is well dosed, too easy and it can quickly become boring. :D

Good listening ! :)

My new composition for the trailer of Project Athia to be released on PS5 :



The game looks very ambitious, and with the new capabilities of the PS5 and a new studio created by Square Enix, it promises a lot of good elements, there's more than enough to hope that the project will see the light of day and not be cancelled along the way ! :)

My new composition for the trailer of Among Trees :



Among Trees is a dynamic little sandbox survival game set in a colorful and vibrant wild world. Explore a colorful world that breathes life. From dense forests to dark caves.

The game appeals to me a lot, it looks soothing, it seems really nice to walk around and explore this pretty forest, a little nugget to discover on paper, see what the gameplay looks like though! :)
