Hey Developers!

In case you're on the lookout for new music to your games or other development projects... I've written some new epic music tracks, ready to use, and I'm in the middle of writing 2 new big epic tracks and one dark and slow dungeon crawler background tune.

This month, I'm running a campaign at Pond5: https://www.pond5.com/artist/ChristianA
Right now you can find all my songs there for 9.95$ - 29.95$.
Want it even cheaper? Then I will accept an offer at http://www.youlicense.com/Artist/ChristianAndersson with the same price minus 20% off the Pond5 price.
I will run this campaign until I have sold 10 tracks there as I want to keep my music pretty unique and I don't want to outsell my other sites.

At my high end sites I license the same songs for 30-150$ each, and I got a recent placement on MTV to be shown in 60 countries where I was paid a sync fee of 500$ for using 12 seconds of my "Hero of Darkness" in a movie ad.

Of course, I can also write new tracks for your game projects.
You can always contact me at craze@craze.se, or visit my site at http://craze.se.
There you will find all music categorized in case you're looking for some particular mood or genre.

Latest news:
- Hollywood A-listed on the top-50-composers-list at one of the world's largest music licensing sites with 2900+ composers.
- Placement of a song on MTV to be shown in 60 countries world wide

All right guys, you know where to find me.

Edit (3 Sept):
---------------------
Short update: I added some new orchestral songs:
- "Gloomy Dungeon" (4 versions). Perfect for a dungeon crawler, spooky caves, dark environments, eerie labyrinths, haunted catacombs, etc.
- Age of Darkness (3 versions), powerful epic orchestral main title song.
- Then I added some electro songs as well. My electro songs are on sale for 4.95$-9.95$ per game license.

I have now licensed 9 out of 10 songs on this 10-song low price drive at Pond5:
https://www.pond5.com/artist/ChristianA

1 more song, and then I need to step up the prices to normal levels, which means a raise with between +20$ to +50$ to match my other sites.

Some other cool news:
- I ended up as finalist in the UK songwriting competition with "Adventurous Epic Action Thrill." ... and this song was also selected by a major trailer production house in the U.S. for use in their trailers.
- 3 other songs were selected for the semifinals in the same competition: Rejoice in Triumph, The Raving World Orchestra and Dark Tidings with Intro choirs.
These songs are all available at Pond5 during this low price drive.
--------------

Take care, and keep up the good work!

Thanks, srealist!
Well... it was the life that I dreamed of too, but it's really a lot of hard work and the income varies a lot, so we'll see how long it lasts. ... meaning, we will see for how long my wife approves of a more uncertain situation in the family economy.

Take care, man!

From ages 20 - 30 I worked primarily as a sound designer and audio engineer. I did have the huge benefit of a "day job" where I got a regular pay check every 2 weeks doing sound design and spatial acoustics research. However, I worked a lot of freelance and contracting as well. Part of improving my skills and tools required me to upgrade my equipment - meaning spend vast sums of money on high end gear.

Well..I'm divorced now and a lot of the problems originated in different philosophies over how we should spend the money I made. So, make sure you guys get on the same page right from the start or the little things will become impenetrable boulders (and it can happen fast).

On the upside, I am now dating the most beautiful woman I've ever known. It's just impossible to understand how the universe works....

Cheers,
Darin
