Some composers replied to our adverts at different forums; we didn't actually state that we're looking for help in this field in this early stage but now that they're interested we should discuss the topic nevertheless. Here are a bunch of work samples of two interested composers, feel free to provide feedback and I'll get back to them and let them know what we think.

for this link I'll simply copy what I alreay wrote at the wiki:

sounds nice. It shows skill and quality as well as diverse styles. Listened to most of the tracks and while none would be really fitting for parpg, the author shows potential to be able to create quality tracks to fit the parpg setting. Definitely to be conntacted once we open the audio section a bit more. (-Lamoot)

All in all I really like what I hear.

Can't comment on other websites, since I haven't listened to them yet.

Just listened to Justin's tracks and they sound like these tunes back in my Nintendo Gameboy time :-)

So a cool way to travel into my childhood again but I'm not sure if it would be suited for PARPG.

Stop the Euro trash! I actually remember the song from my youth, ohh well. I would like to have a time machine but not for my taste in music.

I actually am an amateur musician, piano's and blues mostly, again have no portfolio, but if I was composing for this would be totally differet to what I have done before anyway.
Anywho.. if I get the tme will look forward to writing some music for you guys to hmm over once the project is more in flow.
Initial thoughts would be

scandinavian = heavy metal? if that was wanted could find a band quite easily to help me write/play.

Classical? but not western classical, more northern scales and such, would be interesting to work with and could computerise music by mysef.

a postmodern (yuck word but it's what it would be) pastiche of different styles?

Fallout inspired atmosphere heavy tracks... Much harder to do for me, would have to look into resources availbale to first create similar sounds, then create our own sounds.

I think that the "music" should be background voices like wind whispering on the snow and such,
since if you play the game for hours you wouldnt propably want to hear the same tracks over and over again.

I play games with the sound off.  So, do what you want!

You shouldnt, theres great voices in many games,
like in jagged alliance 2 where the mercenaries hit one liners once in a while.
Its really great entertainment.

Maybe I have constraints that you are not aware of...
I don't particularly enjoy playing games with headphones, and I usually play when my kid is asleep...

Well in those conditions sounds arent a good choise, if you play with headfones for some time and they arent that good they can be pretty uncomfortable.

but a good pair of headphones can enhance the game even more so than normal sounds..

I recommend looking into getting some if possble, they will possibly make your ears melt with some games.

Found an advert of an IMO quite promising composer and sound effects engineer at gamedev.net some days ago.

Thread can be found here:
http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=526493

His portfolio:
http://www.DJYaudio.com

I'll get in contact with him and ask him if he would be okay with our current license proposal (CC 3.0 BY-SA). The electronic music on his website would suit the setting, theme and tone of PARPG quite well IMO :-)

Portfolio of yet another interested composer, feedback appreciated:

Btw.: I mailed the DJYaudio guy but he didn't reply to my mail. He might be on vacation or simply not interested.
