I am writing a comedy musical about working in the video game industry called Game Development. I do have experience in writing music but I am looking for a composer/arranger partner to help take this musical to the next level.
For some reference here is the opening number which I hired a composer to help me with arrangement and clean up on music/lyrics.
As you can hear working with a professional composer makes all the difference. The Act 1 songs are all written but many of them are at the quality of Crunch Time. Act 2 songs need more work and would benefit from a composer/arranger. First pass is script is done but obviously always a work in progress.
If you are interested in working with me please email me at
I am willing to pay for services but ultimately would prefer a partnership if possible. Thanks!
Very interesting. I know nothing about anything that could help you. Except I liked "crunch time" far better 'cause "games are serious work" sounds to this tin ear generic. As a native New Yorker, brought up in musical theatre beginning in the 1950s while still in grade school (too young for those serious dreary dramas) I fell in love with American musical theatre; not the crap the Brit dwarf brought over and nearly ruined American musical theatre. Anyway, I think my little tin hear can hear what's generic and I think, Andrew, what I heard is. The book sounds new and intriguing. I should want my music to sound the same. But, hey! That's just me and as I said I know bupkis about the genre—only what I like. Best of all good fortune with your project. ~Edd
I'm a retired composer, have taught at several universities/colleges in the US and the UK, and am looking for online work. I'd be happy to speak with you if you still need help writing.
