Some Musician Search Responses
I've been getting some E-Mails from people who saw my recruitment posts. There have been some candidates such as Stuntddude and Ai-shi-ter-u. I've been looking at their portfolio work and trying to see who's a good match for me (not who's best but who makes music like the stuff I'll be requesting and who posts new songs often). I'm looking for someone I won't be bothering really. It's almost as if I were reviewing job applications which is weird because I'm not even qualified for any professional position myself. I want this to be more like a great collaboration opportunity for both parties to improve, not a promise of fame and money.
I wanted to contact some folks this early to test out reception and give as much notice as possible in the two places where I'm most likely to find the kind of help I need. The brony community is known to be supportive and collaborate often. Works by these people inspired me to get started in the first place. I know for a fact that there are others like me here trying to perfect their craft and would be all for making music to match games like mine. Spreading word to general indie game music forums might attract a more professional crowd that would expect more from me.
I'm still away from my work desk this week for the most part but I am still reading any responses that pop up. The correspondents are asking m very good questions I hadn't considered a prospective musician asking and it's giving m better insight into what someone's concerns are from the outside looking in.
