    I'm a composer. I want in. Best to be frank :D

    EVEN MORE EDIT: Somehow I don't think I'm going to get to play with the big boys with UT. But I got a good response from my music, so here's a very, very WIP orchestral demo. Not at all suitable for UT and any issues you can hear in it believe me, I already know, but hopes you likes it.



    EDIT WOW: Fine. FINE here's the latest versions of the demo I rushed out last night: https://soundcloud.com/davedextermus...nt-demo-modded

    Sooooo . . . yeah. I'm a composer in all sorts of styles, though I'm guessing my synth/electronica output (as opposed to my guitar, orchestral, chiptune output) is going to be most welcome. I've produced music for many games over the last few years, probably most notably The Other Brothers but a whole bunch of other titles as well. Providing music for UT would be some kind of fantasy. Have some sounds!

    EDIT: So I did a demo over the last 100 minutes that's more in keeping with UT's style. Perhaps, I don't know.

    http://th1swasatriumph.bandcamp.com/...s-of-steel-ost

    They range across the span of my work so quality and production styles differ. I, uh . . . I don't know, go nuts.

    Also, some orchestral stuff from another project as that might be cool as well. https://soundcloud.com/davedextermus...es-ost-partial

      Yes, I saw that. And they're awesome composers. But unless it's confirmed, no harm in me posting.

          You may get to give music though... previous UT had multiple composers...

            I am really extremely biased here but Dave is really a great composer and I think he'd do a stellar job! I have worked with him in the past and I can only say that people should really be open to options.

                The first one reminds me of another song used in UT2k4. I really like it.

                  I heard his music and he is really talented.

                    Perhaps maybe get a music discussion going when the people from epic start giving some info - get a large-ish library of music from more than just the original guys, don't forget community maps are going to end up being bundled with the "final" game (assuming they are up to calibre, but it's a safe bet they will be - no reason they can't be using music that's already within the UT package, from both the original composers, and new blood alike.

                    But I guess this will depend on how this is done, soundtracks being provided for free or not, etc.

                    while the original guys are great, variety is always welcome.

                        No offence but i dont think it will fit, any of the tracks. It has no ut feel, rather feels like atari console games. Too oldschool for ut series. Just my two cents.

                          No offence taken, you're allowed to think that! Bear in mind these are all tracks commissioned for other projects, not tracks I'd intend for use in UT. They just demonstrate my career path/ability to produce electronic music and my compositional approach. If there ever is interest I'd run up some kind of appropriate demo.

                            Hah! Well, I won't say no to that. Another part of that soundtrack was inspired by Power Glove's retro awesome music for Blood Dragon, so it kind of leaked into the others. Slow synth bass grooves for the win.

                              Your synths are so dirty my neighbors called a hazmat crew on me!

                              With this development scheme, I don't think you really need to ASK anyone, just get in and do it! I think your style fits well, get some demo tracks going and post for feedback!
